Adding a learning/newbie section on this forum
« on: May 26, 2013, 05:43:27 pm »
I think a learning/newbie section would be quite useful on this forum, for newbies.
It would contain learners' questions, tutorials, snippets of sample code, etc.
What do you think?

No ;)

See the wiki for lots of tutorials and sample code snippets. Having them in the wiki is better I think because you can update them, syntax highlight them, etc.

Newbies are also welcome and encouraged to post in the relevant category in the existing forum, so I don't really see the need for a new section...

Further more: Everybody has a different definition of what a newbie question is.

Some may ask what the diff between "write" and "writeln" is, others may think of learning how to write a compiler from scratch (if you never done that, then you are a newbie to it)

I agree.
There are so many examples and high-quality answers, just a little more use search...
