About Socoder by Jayenkai | No Votes
What's it all about.
For general use

Welcome to Socoder.

Socoder is the spiritual third-in-line of a list of websites starting with BlitzCoder.

BlitzCoder was purchased and replaced by CodersWorkshop, then CodersWorkshop got scrapped for reasons that nobody's entirely certain of.
SoCoder took up the mantle, because nobody else seemed to want to do it.

If you enjoyed the friendliness of people at either BlitzCoder or CodersWorkshop, you'll find yourself at home, here, too.

Much like BlitzCoder and CodersWorkshop, this site features a Showcase area to place all your coded creations. It also contains a Blitzcoder style Article and Tutorial section, as well as a Code Snippets area. The combination of these sections lets you use this site however you wish. Be it just a place to come and chat, or your main programming website.

All are welcome at SoCoder.

Except Spambots...

What does it all do?

Home : This takes you to the front page of the site, with the latest Showcases, compos, and a shoutbox, all displayed in a simple manner. If you leave this open in a tab, the two sidebars will constantly refresh, allowing you to lazily pop back to check on the latest topics.

Forum : This is the main chunk of the website, where you'll be doing the normal Forum like things.

Quick Post : Lets you make a quick post without all the fiddling about through various forums and stuff.

Notepad : Post things to your notepad, and you can retrieve them later. Only you can access your notepad.

Blog : This is your blog. Use it wisely!

Profile : From here, you can change your avatar, real name, homepage and other occasionally useful info.

Uploads : You can upload files here, be it silly pictures you found online, or your latest game. Whatever! Rather than upload to one of those horrendous ad-ridden horror sites, simply upload it to this server.
It does the job, as long as your upload isn't bigger than about 8Mb..

Quick Theme : This is where you go if you want to change the way the site looks. There are many options to choose from.


MudChat : A basic chatroom.

PM's : This is where your Private Messages are stored. To create a PM, look for the small PM icon in a user's "Garden Bar" (The small list of icons below a user's post)


Wed.Workshop : Every Wednesday a small task is set. To code a game with a given theme, within the next 7 days. Any entries will then be judged by the community. There's no prizes involved, it's just for fun... Usually when you're bored.

Showcases : If you create something really great, post it to the showcase, where we can all download it, play with it, and then leave comments about it.

Articles and Tutorials : If you think you can help other people on the forum to learn things about coding, you can write a whole article, or series of articles, and post it into this section. The more the merrier, as long as they're useful!

Code Snippets : If you've created a set of really handy functions, or a nice graphical effect, and you think that other people might like to use it in their programs, you can post the code into this section.

Link Archive : This is where you can post links, whether they be useful links full of art and sound for games, links to tutorials, or even just links to silly news stories and flash games..


Random Page : Jumps to a random thing on the site. Discover long forgotten oddities!

FAQs : Articles about the site.

About Socoder : That's this!

Search : A vaguely working search feature.

SoCoder?

As in "I am So [a] Coder"...
.. You'll get used to it

Additionally, SoCoder has little to do with Google's Summer of Code (SoC) except for the whole coding thing.. Some of the Google Summer of Code peeps are starting to name themselves SoCoders.. If they'd like to sign up, they're more than welcome to. Just, you know.. don't baffle us!!
