New site for developers of all camps

you find the site under:
http://www.amigacoding.de

I want to describe shortly what I think what this site should be about and the rules.

First I think the situation is that it is very difficult for programmers that want to start programming (be it amigians or developers that want to start support one or all amiga platforms to get informations. Informations are split on different special sites or even lost (like utilitybase). But this special sites are mostly dedicated to only one platform and there is no central resource anymore covering all platforms. There is also no platform covering all platforms where programmers can discuss without the typical discussions.

So I think this site should be:
Neutral, covering all platforms. Emotional discussions with phrases like "True", "done right" will be stopped by moderation (for that there are already enough sites)
Resource for programmers and people interested in programming/development
Supporting communication between programmers and collaboration between all camps
Any insulting comments will be deleted without any comment

There are parts of utilitybase in web left:
http://web.archive.org/web/201002070...ilitybase.com/

I would like to ask the people who have contributed to utilitybase in the past add the informations on this site (to save them). I cannot do it myself.

Nice to see new initiatives, however isn't it confusing to use the same name as my amigacoding.com wiki ?

Also I hope it'll stay online for a long time, as when sites/forums disappear they can take a lot of usefull information or discussions with them. This way the AMOS factory also lost many discussions/posts due to new incarnations of the site/forums. Which is funny because the posts from the AMOS emailing lists which existed before the forums (since 1993) are all archived on Aminet and will never be lost. (funny to read back my old posts there from '93 :P). Maybe it's an idea to have exports/archives of discussions uploaded to Aminet every now and then to preserve knowledge?
(it was also one of the reasons I requested the release of the AMOSPro sourcecodes, since I knew Francois Lionet already lost all the sourcecodes himself)

I plan to stay it online for a long time.

the problem with forum-software is (when you change it) that the databases are all specific and propably not very good documented so when you want to take over the data from one system to another you must have someone who knows both and how the data are organized (propably in reality not the case). So by changing the system you loose all data. I will try to save some of the threads from utilitybase in my site.

I still have to finish archiving and uploading the Y! AMOS list emails to Aminet. It's not been forgotten, I have just been busy with other things
