New forum sections

I wanted to ask you folks if there are any additional forum sections that you feel would benefit the site.

Re: New forum sections

Hi,

To be honest, one thing I am always missing when I study programs and then visit forums is section regarding literature or good resources. We can eventually find information we need but sometimes it takes time to filter proper resources in google results. I think such section could contain some recommendations, opinions, or perhaps suggestions with regard to VBA, design of a database and other specific aspect of ACCESS. Literature and good resources is IMO the most important aspect when it comes to learn fundamentals and it greatly speeds up the learning process.

EDIT. I found a very good tutorial on following website:
Database Development with VBA
It is one that helped me to kick off with Access and VBA. I highly recommend it to all beginners.

Re: New forum sections

First I would like to thank you for this site, it is really one of The Internet Tools which can be considered as a good Guide for Access Users,
but in the Learning Section I couldn't find anything related to a clear explanation about VBA in access how to use the VBA to work with unbound Forms or any explanation of RecordSet Specially and other VBA Tools,
it would be greate if we have this section here.

Re: New forum sections

Maybe Outlook would be benifical.

Also as we have SQL Server why not add MySQL which is more popular.

One thing I would like to see is when viewing a post it displays the section the question was originally asked in.

Jon, these are simply suggestions for you to think about. They are not items that I particurally want or need.

See what others think.

BTW Speed is still an issue.

I would hesitate to separate SQL Server and MySQL into separate forum groups. Perhaps slightly adjust the name of the SQL group to make it more welcoming to other SQL RDBMS's.

Likewise with the VBA group. As-is that group is under the Access heading. I feel like a heel having to ask a VBA question in that group which is rightfully NOT Access VBA, but Excel / Word VBA. I ask there anyway as I do not perceive this site to generate enough Excel / Word group activity, and the question was about VBA rather than general Excel / Word usage.

Re: New forum sections

Try kicking this one around.

Some members post in the Code archives. Sometimes we may have questions but we can't ask directly because the thread is usually closed.

Should we consider having a special place for follow up questions.

The way I see it the Sample Database or Tutoral is placed in the same place as usual. Then a new thread is opened in this new forum for discussion and for the Author to respond if they feel inclined to do so.

The new thread could only be started by a Moderator at the Author's request.

Up to you guys to discuss.

Re: New forum sections

A Wiki has been talked about, which would facilitate a better code repository than forum moderators locking / unlocking posts.

Fortunately forum moderators are reasonable / willing to unlock threads upon request, example:

http://www.access-programmers.co.uk/...08#post1217330

Re: New forum sections

It would be nice if those in command here would reply to the suggestions made. For example - yes good idea, we'll do it, good but not practical, rubbish idea, no way Pedro.

Or are the posters going to be left not knowing why their suggestion was left dangling. Although, thinking about it, they are questions so will be ignored by US commanders.

Re: New forum sections

If I was Jon I would be waiting for some more comments before jumping in.

It appears to me that he will do what we want if enough people agree that it is a good idea.

That's the point, there are no comments or discussion, so the proposers have no idea what is going on.

Seems to be plenty of discussion to me, but the only one who can really approve a change and make it is Jon.

Re: New forum sections

I have been thinking. Yes I know that that can be dangerous.

How about a section for CHAT or NEWS or HELP. Just the one which can be used for anything.

Examples

CHAT. Right now there is some car racing on in Austin Texas. I would like to know what Americans think of it. BTW it is for Australian V8 Super Cars. The first meeting outside of Aus. Is it as successful as what they are saying on TV.

NEWS Hey guys my first Grandson was born last night.

HELP I have been working on this thread and need some help from someone who knows about Combo Boxes.

I would further suggest that this is a self destruct thread. A post will only stay for 7 days. On the 8th Day it is automatically deleted. There would only be the ONE thread. You cannot create a new one like in the water cooler.

If this is as popular as I think it might be it could be made into a Sticky and feature just above or below the Water Cooler.

Open to you guys and gals for discussion.

Cheers.

Re: New forum sections

I like the chat idea.
Sometimes it would be nice to chat with someone I am helping.
