...We will see how this pans out.
Looks good to me, I just hope that some beginners arrive and start using it...

This seems a good idea.
I could add some things to it.

I made a few apps like the Icon maker that were designed to be very simple and commented throughout to explain what's happening as a form of tutorial.

Hi Bruce,

If you have anything educational I am happy to add them in the Wordpress area. Have a look at Gerry's book which is complete with example programs. These could then be pointed to on the forum. You can email me at admin AT gambas DOT one.

I thought simple examples were wanted for the currently empty Beginners Forum.
Maybe i misunderstood?

Never mind ,, i'll leave you to it.

Ideally we want beginners to ask questions on the Beginners sub-forum, and I thought we were going to change 'Did You Know?' into a series of simple 'Tips & Tricks'

There is a snippet's section here.

At the moment you can't write to this section but that could be changed. I see the Forum for asking questions and the Wordpress area for snippets etc.
