I don't think an hour and twenty minutes is a fair debate.  There's lots of people who haven't had a chance to read this thread.  I would have voted to keep it private.  But then I don't know how to program in ARX and therefor probably won't visit this forum much.  Just another 2 cents.

Loosely translates from Latin as "fortress of knowledge."

Should we make the lisp, vb etc. forums private? Why? Help me out, 'cause I just don't understand the benefit or what we'd be protecting.

'Private' Pros and Cons

Pros:
Keeps the 2 centsers out of the way.
Keeps posting of intellectual property from being plagurized

Cons:
Seems a bit 'Elite-ist'
Joe Shmoe doesn't learn anything

And thats my 2 cents.

1. Eh?
2. No it doesn't. All Joe Thief has to do is create an account.

Rewind myself.... I think here is a lost in translation thing..... The way I see it is as it is now, just the forums that are public leave it as-is, inside for register members, we simply are adding [MT] a new forum, and anyone will be welcome.

That's all.
Right now, Autolisp, VB(A), .NET, CAD General(and sub-categories), Vertically Challenged (and sub-categories) is what is public.  Why should ARX be private when ALL of the other CAD & CAD Programming boards are public.  Seems to me that it might well attract new members.  As for intellectual property being plagurized, same as anywhere else here or for that matter, anywhere else on the internet, in print, or anywhere else that anyone can see it.  If you don't wan't someone to use it, don't let them see it.

IMO public is good as there are very few forums where you can ask/post questions about arx and being public may encourage more experienced developers to join in. Even though there may only be a few people registered who are coding arx, this still could build a resource for new arx coders when they decide to give it a go.

What I would like on this type of forum is participation, communication in my opinion it is required in this type of language.... if people just come and grabs code or portions of code, without doing nothing?.... I really do not mind to give away code, but again, in my poor opinion I would prefer to have a dialogue, like the one we have right now.... but I do not have the last word..... and I know I might be wrong.
How is that different than any of the other coding forums?  None of them are code repositories, nor should they be.  I understand that ARX is more complex but dialog is an important part of all of them.  The plus side to ARX, unlike VBA, lisp, etc. is that it takes a much higher degree of knowledge and ability, not to mention software, to go from a blurb of source to a usable application so I think that you are a lot more likely to get dialog from someone who trips over a thread than you would from the other languages.
