This is a petition to add more categories to the forums. Right now everything is under general. Could we at least create a code forum. A beginners forum? The “General” category is so broad that its completely worthless. Tags aren’t much help. You might say well there isn’t enough discussion to facilitate a new forums, and that’s like trying to help my writers block by removing creative restraints. Constraints actually facilitate discussion.
For example, if I wanted to make a post about a new kind of F# powered piece of software, is it appropriate for the forums? Let’s check General. Hmm I don’t see any posts like that maybe this forums is really about “asking questions”. Where else do I go, Oh I guess there’s nowhere else. I guess I’ll go to the Slack.
Please post below what categories you want to see so we can escape the tyranny of “general”.
I would personally like to see Game Development because I periodically see activity in the slack but it gets washed away and we lose important information.
