ichabod801 wrote:My only idea would be to do the sub-forum in reverse: if someone gives it a bad review, it goes into the "how not to code" sub-forum. However, I'm not sure we could implement that effectively, and it seems kind of rude.

On the other hand, my plan with my latest big back burner project is learn GitHub and post it there when it's done.

Let the poster decide which area his/her code should fall and then be prepared for whatever comments are made, be they good or bad. I would be more inclined to 'review' code from a beginner than I would be from a pro. I would also expect comments would be more lenient for beginners and a whole lot harsher for a pro.

Simplified: two forums: "Good Stuff" and "Bad Stuff" (possibly under more diplomatic names). People can only post to "Bad Stuff". Only mods can move things to "Good Stuff".

I don't think anyone would go back and nominate stuff, especially if the posters don't lobby for reviews. I was actually thinking about locking that subforum so that we could "start fresh" in a sense; I thought keeping unreviewed code closer to 0 might encourage it being kept up with.
