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.

Back in 2004 or so, BlitzCoder was purchased and replaced by CodersWorkshop.
Everyone was happy, but suddenly CodersWorkshop got scrapped for reasons that nobody's entirely certain of.

A myriad of forums were built, scattering the community all over the internet, this being one of them.
Temporary forums like SyntaxBomb and DevCrunch then took most of the community down with them, when they too failed to stay alive.
SoCoder has continued to do it's bit, and over a decade later, it's still just about functional.

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, Blog and more. 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 a shoutbox, a daily poll, and whatever else can fit on the page.

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. The little "New Page" icon in the middle of the header will also perform the same function.

Uploads : You can upload files here, be it silly pictures you found online, or your latest game. Whatever! (within obvious legal reasonings!!)
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..

Notes : Post things to your notepad, and you can retrieve them later. Notes can also be used as a Private Message style system. Simply add other members into the Note.

Blog : This is your blog. Use it wisely!

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

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


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..

Blogs : Everybody's blogs, all in one pllce.


FAQs : Articles about the site.

About Socoder : That's this!

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!!
