I mentioned this a couple of years ago but want to give it another shot
as I now have a different reason.
I have found this list a bit intimidating, formal and fairly tense at
I wanted a list to ask stupid questions on. I also have trouble writing
terse emails and longer less formal ones would be easier to write and
Being able to post and read emails laced with a bit of humour would be
more fun but in the present situation when there are 2K+ subscribers,
it's almost certain someone will take offence and the fun is over. A
list with >200 people would be more casual and potentially more
educational as topics loosely related to Lua but within CS could
potentially be discussed too.
Now I want a tutor list for a different reason as well. I am not
actually using Lua at the moment but I have learned the basics and have
all the references material at hand. I would like to answer all the
questions I am capable of, to give back to the community that has
tolerated my questions and helped me so much.
There is too much traffic on this list to sit around waiting for simple
questions but a tutor list would be easy to monitor and participate
with. Years ago I subscribed to the python tutor list. I really enjoyed
it but moved on from Python.
This might also keep the signal to noise higher on the main list.
