It's up to them to understand what it's doing. It's their responsibility, just like it is yours or mine when our cars break down or our wrist-watches hit daylight savings time. If there is malicious code in a script, or even if there isn't, well, it's the user's fault for blindly assuming it'll do its job without flaw.
    Also, these people will most likely test the routines out, then post a hearty "Thanks!" if it works, or "No that didn't work, can you rewrite it" if it is a bad routine. Then, someone who reads the post later down the road will have a pretty good idea what they're getting themselves into.

    On a more serious note, I would be more than happy to help train some beavers, sounds like it would be a lot more fun than writing AutoLisp.

    I think there should be a dedicated Autolisp/Vlisp forum with two subforums- one for those requesting help on developing code and the other for those that want the code written/provided for them.
    Maybe they could be titled "Teach to fish" & "Give a fish" (keeping with the CADTutor's fish theme)

    I am a new poster here, and I think you guys are correct in not wanting garbage code and .dll's floating around similar concerns with exe files; You need to see the code to be sure its safe. The other concern is will the .net forum be active enough? Well I am not sure but sooner or later I think it inevitable that programming is changing and lots of programmers are liking C# and VB.net is very similar; The IDE in VS is GREAT, development time for new users is improved because of it.

    My feeling is a tutorial gets approval first, and if approved goes in a .net tutorial sub section under .net.

    For general posting well it just goes in a .net forum such as any category would have for learning, and any code can be posted its just not approved (no .dll's just code). basic things go on here like asking for help or helping new users. I am a new user myself BUT I have been working hard developing code also.

    You've got a point, RMS. I had the same feeling. Most of what goes on in the current forum is vanilla LISP, though the more experienced users would take a vanilla LISP problem and make it easier (nicer, cleaner, harder, better, faster, stronger) using Visual LISP. We will get a VBA question here or there, maybe one or two a day, and a .net question maybe once every month or two. If the forum was split up into its constituents, the VBA and .net forums would be ghost towns compared to the LISP forum.

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Out of curiosity, I was wondering if codes that are posted in the Archive can only be posted by the Author or is the forum going to continue to allow posting of codes by people not being the Author? It does not seem right that this should be allowed. Also codes in the Archive should have header information in tact. There are two codes now in the Archive I feel that should not be in there, Because they were posted by others and not the Author.
    For this reason the Archive should have restrictions, But that does not explain how these codes got in there in the first place. As restricted as it is now, something slipped through the cracks.
