Generosity was never an issue here valv
The current layout is just a basic skeleton, ever since the repo opened up. We're always looking to make things better, we just want to hear from every member of the team. Things that may fit me may not fit you and vice versa.
Straight to the chase:
-Giving a page/subforum to every dev can be done really quick as long as a dev wishes to run his work this way. ie you may be happy to have threads for your work open and available to end users, but Kabyl may prefer to release something only when he sees fit and prefer to have feedback only from other devs.
-Making the whole DevTalk subforum available only to members of the board can also be done quickly. That's how we used to do it.
-For quick chat/feedback/shout in private there's always our irc channel too.
So come on guys, let's vote or just bring your ideas, this place is, first and foremost, a dev's playground
Personally, I can't figure how/why some devs afford to waste so much time by half-supporting random bits & pieces in more than one place. I see decent work in one place (say Slice's smc stuff on projectosx, or one of your projects in another forum), why would I open a thread here to integrate my ideas? It will only make end-users ping-pong between forums and us ending up in trying to follow mostly the same feedback/questions in 2 different places.
