FreeBasic forum is up
Hello everyone,

I just wanted to let everyone know that the FreeBasic sub forum is now up and running.

My goal is to bring joy, excitement, fun and education to all computer programming hobbyists, tinkerers, and amateurs. I also enjoy helping and working with those who aspire at becoming masters of their craft.

RE: FreeBasic forum is up
Hi Walter,

I am pleasantly surprised to see this one. May I inquire of you or anyone that knows the background story for this new addition to forum.

It is quite a coincidence, I post some FB code to welcome Jack and the next forum change I see is a place for FB. Same day was it?

Well I for one, hope people will come and help me re-code some SmallBASIC project I might need compiled, oh wait, I can do that with QB64 now.

Ah! now I have a choice and a new dilemma, which to choose? Wink

RE: FreeBasic forum is up
Hi all,

I think we should elect someone to post a News Item at the FB forum about this new section here.

I will gladly do it but I just signed up there recently and haven't established a respected reputation.

Is there someone more experienced at that forum also of this one?

Anytime you see any new categories, features, designs, or any other low-level changes to this site, please remember that I am the one doing it all.

No coincidence at all! Your posting of FreeBasic code to welcome Jack was the push I needed to add the new category. I have plans on adding more languages to this forum in the future (whenever I get around to thinking about them), so expect to see more.

I had planned on adding a FreeBasic category, but I wasn't going to do it until I had a chance to try it out and create some demos for it. But since you posted a demo for FreeBasic, I decided that was all I needed to create it.

Yes, it was on the same day.

Think of it like I do:  "Which tool (yes programming languages are just tools) can I use that will allow me to create a project the fastest, the easiest, and for the environment I am using at the time (desktop, HTML5, Android device, XBOX, etc...)?"

RE: FreeBasic forum is up
I should warn, when you become a new member, the process of registering so that you may post goes pretty quickly. You might be able to write a post within hours, BUT it will be put in purgatory limbo for 2 days.

Walter don't hold your breath to see your post today and probably not tomorrow unless you can pull strings.

RE: FreeBasic forum is up
They decided bplus should cool his jets for 2 days.

Append add data:

May 01, 2017 I signed up as member and posted, May 3, 2017 post finally got past spam bots.

I don't recall any conversations about lifting the delay since I've joined.

But, after first post clears it's smooth sailing, no more delays.
