    New year, new mods/suggestions needed!

    Well, 2011 is officially upon us, and with that, time for a little re-organization!

    1) Firstly, we need a few fine men/women to add to the list of crime fighting mods on CF. If you're a member in excellent standing on CF, have been a member for a while (and hence proven your unwaivering loyalty to the establishment), and are passionate about helping other members and tripping up spammers, consider signing up! Mods are currently assigned into one of the 4 major categories on CF, which are:

    1. Client side development
    2. Server side development
    3. Computing & Sciences
    4. Web Projects and Services Marketplace

    In terms of need for additional mod help, I'd say 1, 2, and 4 are the priorities right now.

    If you'd like to apply for the mod position, please reply here or pm me, plus the category you wish to be assigned to.

    2) Secondly, it's been a while since the forum categories on CF have been altered or added to. Are there any new forum category you'd like to see added to CF? If you have a suggestion on this front or in general, this is the time to speak up!
    - George
    - JavaScript Kit- JavaScript tutorials and 400+ scripts!
    - JavaScript Reference- JavaScript reference you can relate to.

    The Ruby and Ruby on Rails forums are quite quiet; didn't turn out to be the big boom expected. I'd suggest sub-foruming them to the Other Server Side languages or Computer Programming forum (maybe even split, though IMO I'd put Ruby as a part of the Computer Programming forums).
    For additions, I'm wondering about a .NET forum or sub-forum to the Computer Programming forum. C# and VB.NET are both pretty popular, and the only dedicate(ish) forum we have is the ASP.NET forum which IMO doesn't really qualify for having C# or VB specific questions within them. If that change does occur, than perhaps a merging of the ASP and ASP.NET forums with a new pre-thread title tag of .NET to indicate which are ASP and which are ASP.NET questions.

    Edit:
    Also, I don't keep up too highly on the mobile devices myself, but what about an objective c forum or general mobile programming forum. I don't know how many members specialize in this field right now, but it may help to increase the general knowledge pool as well by drawing more knowledgeable people in too.

    Yay! I wanted to be a spam fighter for a long time already. I’m usually lurking around in the client side section but would also be cool with the projects forum. Would be very happy to help out.

    As to the categories I’d second bazz’s suggestion but wouldn’t limit it to iPhone applications but maybe mobile apps in general (if that’s feasible – I’m not familiar with that subject).
    Edit: Oh, just noticed Fou-Lu’s post about general mobile development, hehe. Sorry, was so excited of becoming a mod that I’ve skipped that one. Definitely seconded.

    As a suggestion, and I feel like this may have been suggested before, is color coding for code.

    We've got color coding for PHP, which is great, but it'd be nice to have it for other languages as well. From a quick Google search this looked promising: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=93071. It uses GeSHi which, while I'm not a huge fan of the colors it uses, is great at detecting the correct syntax to highlight for a ton of different languages.

    Just my two cents!
    Unless otherwise stated, any code posted is most likely untested and may contain syntax errors.

    I like that idea.

    Don't forget we'll need to train everyone to use it (hard enough as is O.o)
    I do like having more syntax highlighting though.

    Couldn’t it be modified to apply to “code” BB tags automatically, as with the PHP tags currently?

    I'm sure it could be, but what I mean is its hard enough getting people to wrap their code

    That isn't a reason to not do it though.

    I'm honestly not sure how much modification the plugin will allow, though it may always be possible to implement something like this:

    ['code]My Un-highlighted code['/code]

    ['code lang="java"]System.out.println( "My Java highlighted code!" );['/code]

    Consolidates it into a handy package. Probably easier than a few dozen more BBCodes specific for each language!
