'''I agree. I'd like to see this, a less intrusive place than the main
mailing list to have fairly long, subjective discussions about
best-practice in module API design and other things that are probably
only of much interest to module developers.'''
This reminds me of something. Last year I posted about starting a Lua
tutor list. The response was that this list is already suitable for
newbies, everyone is welcome.
A year later, I have to say that this is not really the case. I got half
flamed last week when one of my posts was not interesting/or high
quality enough for another member. Although we have many members from
other places I find it suspicious how dead the list goes after 5 P.M
EDT. I suspect that almost everyone here are day-coders in a few times
zones and not amateurs the world over studying after the kids go to bed.
I think Lua is a great bridge between different groups of people. The
easy parts are really easy but the hard parts are really hard(and
powerful) on this list we seem to only have the very bright, high end
coders and this will likely increase now that we have an exodus of
losers who don't know how to use the unsubscribe link.
I don't always feel comfortable posting . As a general rule for this
list would it seem appropriate to post if the question cannot be
answered by PIL?
Any question can likely be answered without the list but at some
threshold why have a list if you can't post without days of searching.
