    In general I think WDF is nicely structured, especially when compared to other similar forums. By that I mean how the different forums are organized in sections and subsections. (i.e. Visualizing it/Coding it/etc, with their subforums Javascript/PHP MySQL/ etc)

    One forum that is a bit "disorganized" though, is the Tutorials section.

    Would it be possible to sort this in to subsections as well? I gues it would be a pretty huge task to reorganize the data already there, but for future posts?
    (The old data could be moved incrementally when ever you had the time for it)

    I'm with Rosland on this one. Possibly adding subsections for Tuts such as "Programming", "Web Design", "Graphics", and "General" ?

    Also, maybe we should start an "Articles" forum? I know that some of my recent tutorials would probably fit better into something like that.

    I'm all for it. I'd even be for a vB mod to make it more of a tutorials section of a website for that section, although I realize that would be a monumental tastk.

    I'm down with the mod idea. I personally think we should have "tutorials" and "articles" sections separate from the forums.

    Also, I think searching should be something that is more readily available. Maybe a search box on every page? Or maybe on the "New Thread" screen, have a message saying "Try searching for your problem first!" with a search box above the new thread dialog.

    Given that it is more popular, if a short list of subforums (at most five) is given and agreed upon, then I may consider adding them.

    I shouldn't have to say again that I will not be adding any extra functionality to WDF until vB3 is installed, and that is not looking to be likely in the immediate future.

    My list:
    Graphics
    Web Authoring (HTML, JavaScript)
    Server-Side Scripting (PHP/ASP/MySQL/MSSQL)
    Web Business (or business in general)
    Miscelaneous

    Of course you shouldn't have to say, but I was just throwing out the idea It would be nice to be able to sort by rating, number of ratings, number of views, date, etc. Which AFAIK requires some modding.

    They just upgraded at another forum I post at - it's AWESOME!

    It's still in RC state and also just had a critical security flaw discovered.

    I hate it personally... it's a bloated POS that has 0 usability. the only reason I want vb3 here is so filburt can start hacking WDF again

    For those who haven't worked in commercial software development, "RC" status means Release Candidate. It is the stage post-beta in which final bugs are ironed out prior to sale of the software.

    In this case, I can't believe that they're already selling it if it's still in RC !!
