This is a topic we'll keep in mind (and were already considering reviving FWIW) in the mid-term future, but I'd like the next launch to be a little more narrowly defined and a little less ambitious.

At this time I don't think we want to fracture LQ and have topics that are directly Linux related broken out into TQN sites, but I'm open to arguments on why we should if the topic is broad enough and the demand great enough.

I agree. I don't think that LQ should be broken up to any great extent......I think that would be a disaster.

As far as a programing forum goes, don't you think that a site on just c languages or maybe just on perl etc. would be good? Thus keeping it relatively narrow.

I just came by to add the idea of a programming forum, and discovered others beat me to it. So I will simply add my vote.

I really like the idea of a programming forum. The programming section at LQ is fine, but I do wonder if it is attracting many people from outside the *nix ecosystem. I think a great many people who need help with their coding are probably in the student category, and those individuals may not have had much or any exposure to Linux. Thus, many of them might never even know we're here.

I think a whole forum with different sections on various languages would be very welcome, and I cannot think of another site off the top of my head that does it this way. Plus, in my opinion the other programming forums out there all leave something to be desired (I'm mainly thinking of some Java forums I will not mention). I think TQN could do it much better than it is being done now.

Edit: After reading post #16, I see that Jeremy has already responded to the programming forum idea. Yes, I guess it is very ambitious. I suppose projects like this have to wait until they can be realistically undertaken. I still hope to see it in the future, though.

I'd like to see ARM hardware questions addressed, myself; Embedded. Perhaps there is something out there yet I'm not aware of it?!

Whatever the focus of a new TQN site would be, it might be nice if it was a true niche, not something that's already done. Consider all the subjects that are already addressed by things such as the "Stack Exchange" sites, etc.

LQ capital is people who visit this forum answer questions etc.. there are many platforms that host specific niche topic. But there is some projects with great success that act as platform for discussions but not as specific platform place. Im talking about comments,polls,votes and even forum systems, not all of them is *components*, rather web resources for activity and collaboration. That's why i suggest evolve LQ as platform for topic discussions not as specific topics web resource. Merging codebase in one system(even distributed across different hosts), making ability for members to open new area topics(sub sites!) and keeping it all under one hood make benefits in visitor count,one gate access for info,collaboration on improving resource(i hope someday this will be open on tech side too),more rapid tech development(maybe paid LQ Drive,RSS News collectors(Btw GOOGLE IG will be closing soon),Git etc..).

Maybe a JavaQuestions

I know a lot of people who use java and need help on it, maybe a JavaQuestions site would be best.

How about networking? Have a site dedicated to switches and firewalls. Cisco, Juniper, iptables, etc. Linux and networking go hand in hand so it'd be a natural addition.

Thanks for the feedback. We're happy to announce the launch of http://ChromeOSQuestions.org as the newest member of The Questions Network - http://www.chromeosquestions.org/thr...SQuestions-org

While the focus will now move to getting the platform ready to run LQ, the next TQN site topic will be a bit more ambitious and we'll certainly keep all feedback posted in mind.

i am horribly late with this suggestion but i just thought about a forum dedicated to raspberry-pis (or possibly arduino).
