Just to resurrect an old an old thought triggered by @Rand. More Free Programming Books ("Last one I Promise"). Have a "locked" sub-form where only book/webpage references can be posted. The reason for "locked" is to keep things focused on books being a reference source. People have posted references to good books in the past, but overtime they are "lost" into the depths of this forum.

Stalking?? To clarify, It would be beneficial to have one place for people to leave links to reference materials. As you are ware, thread discussions can get hijacked. Hence, I use the term "locked" to imply that off-topic discussions would not be allowed.

Yes, this is a good idea and has been mentioned before.

However there are two problems with it, maintenance/organisation, and the second problem is who's going to do that.

There are two forum sections, sample databases and code examples which go some way to addressing the problem, but they don't address the organisational problem.

However a recent good sort out of the stickies by Jon does offer a way of providing some organisation.

The stickies are now composed of "one" sticky with links to other threads. This could be further expanded to link to menu posts, and that way provide organisation but it needs some work.

Each sticky section also contains a sticky where you can suggest something that should be added to the sticky section.

Anyone can suggest an addition which is good enough to add to the sticky section and then someone can edit the sticky, initially just add threads to the sticky list. When the sticky list becomes full, then the decision can be made on to how to add a menu index? to sets of related posts...

The first step:- keep suggesting suitable threads to add to the stickys. This needs input from everyone....

Here is the place to post your recommendations:-
