    [Suggestion] Expansion to programming sections.

    I know the main purpose of Sythe is to be a market place but ever since the addition of SytheLib and it's corresponding sections I can't help but feel that perhaps there is room to grow the programming sections mainly for snippets of code/tutorials.

    SytheLib has it's own section for snippets but I think it may be beneficial just for community knowledge and or discussion to have sections where people can talk about different implementations of various programming languages for a variety of reasons.


    A counter argument to this is that there are a variety of websites that have snippets like StackOverFlow because we know real programmers just google what they need to find out.




    Here are three examples that I can come up with off the top of my head:
    • How do do X action on a botting platform.
    • How to implement Y function on a discord bot
    • How to do Z in C# that may have nothing to do with RuneScape at all.

    It could be for people not only asking/seeking answers but also for people being generous with their knowledge and posting what they already know and what they are willing to share.




    Below is an example of how this could work:

    Friendly guy makes a thread because he cannot for the life of himself figure out how to send a socket in Java

    @Dev Zach comes rolling along like the nice guy he is and posts the below snippet and explains what it does and how to get a response from a back-end listening for the socket just to add onto it because he's such a nice guy.

    Code:
        private String sendSocket(final String content) {
    
            String resp = null;
            try {
                Socket socket = new Socket(HOST, PORT);
                PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(socket.getOutputStream());
    
                out.println(content);
    
                out.flush();
    
                BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(socket.getInputStream()));
    
                resp = in.readLine();
                socket.close();
            } catch (IOException e) {
                e.printStackTrace();
            }
    
            return resp;
        }
    


    Let me know what you guys think and if you think there is enough demand for more programming sections or not :)

    [Suggestion] Expansion to programming sections.

    This idea makes no sense.

    If you don't know how a Socket works, just ask on StackOverflow (or search on SO, these common types of things have been answered already hundreds if not thousands of times).

    Sythe is not a programming community, and does not target that kind of demographic of users to begin with (nor should it).

    @Owned_Pl0xs
    I know where you're coming from.
    The sockets thing was just a basic example. Can be used for a variety of other thing though.

    Sythe is a market and always has been, it's more so just a feeler post to see where it goes.
    Thanks for the feedback!

    [Suggestion] Expansion to programming sections.

    The programming section used to be pretty expansive but it was contracted due to lack of interest. I don't think expanding it would bring in new blood tbh, especially when the current section is as dead as it is. I'd love for that not to be the case, I love talking about programming, but the users just aren't there.

    [Suggestion] Expansion to programming sections.

    Furthermore, advocating for a programming section on a community that has no real intrinsic motivator to actually create things is exactly how script kiddies and leechers are born.

    I rather avoid creating 100 skids on the off chance that it harbors one persons genuine interest in the subject.

    There are communities out there that are focused towards a myriad of subjects, whether it be reverse engineering, general programming, and other CS type of things.

    I suggest you find those communities, join them, and strengthen them, rather than attempt to spawn a cesspool here.

    no one really uses it, sadly-- and nothing will ever compete with stackoverflow. love the interest in expanding the programming community here though my man.

    I would love to see this - but I feel like there aren't enough programmers :(

    I think this is the main problem with the suggestion.
    For the people who are programmers I'm sure they'd love to see it, however there are just not enough of us to make it feasible or worth while to include to the forums.

    Thanks everyone!
    Also never knew that it used to be a thing and was removed as @Blupig said.
    It makes sense after the feedback this thread got. There is the love, just not the people. :(

    No support at this time. Simply because I don't feel it would be used.

    As it stands there isn't enough interest to merit an expansion on-site. Thanks for the suggestion though.
