    Suggestion for this site

    As a frequent user and responder to questions, I have a suggestion to this site. Maybe I'm missing it, but could there be a forum for posting developed code examples. I have quite a few helpful snippets of MSAccess code and a few VB games which I developed. I'm not sure if it's really kosher to post the vb games on this site in the vb forum but I thought they might be inspirational for other vb coders to "want" to learn by seeing what a sample vb game could do (I know it made me want to learn by seeing other vb games and examples - "hey, I want to be able to do that but better" type of thing). I'm wondering if it wouldn't be going to far as to say "could we have a user developed gaming" forum and another one which is something like "user developed helpful coding snippets." Just my 2 cents...Thanks for doing such a great job on this forum and keeping it going. I use it weekly (mostly answering other questions). It's been a good inspiration for me when work has become a drag.

    I was hoping that someone who understands this forum better than I would respond.

    And I'll still wait on some more responses.

    Suffice it to say, if the members think it's a good idea, it's a good idea.
    Have a community? Have questions?

    Defo on the code snippets idea. We were talking about linking to code snippets via the fledgling Access FAQ but that seems to have died a death. I had been thinking about creating a thread and linking to good example of code snippets as and when posted.

    The one problem with a separate forum is that it there would need to be multiple platform specific forums really. I wouldn't want to wade through pl\sql looking for some vba code.
