We’ve listened to everyone’s feedback and made a ton of improvements to our forum.
###Improvement #1: HTTPS
Our open source community takes security seriously. Now everything on our forum is encrypted using SSL.
###Improvement #2: Simplified Categories
You don’t need to add a category to your posts, but if you do, they’re now much simpler. Here’s the full list:
News - post articles, videos, tools, podcasts, events - anything you think other campers might be interested in
Help / Questions - get help or ask general questions. This category features a Stack Overflow-style “Accepted Answer” functionality, so the accepted answer will show up right below the question - you won’t have to scroll through to find it.
Reviews - write reviews for literally anything: programming books, online courses, even Star Trek episodes if you want. You can give something 1 to 5 stars. Then other campers can reply with their own ratings. The thread will show the average rating.
Getting a Developer Job - write about your interviews, job offers you receive, salaries, your first few days on the job, or really anything related to your developer career.
Wiki - learn about a wide variety of programming languages and technologies, and contribute to our shared knowledge base.
Project Feedback - get feedback on all projects - not just your Free Code Camp practice projects. Due to a huge volume of posts, these no longer show up in the main news feed.
Meta - talk about Free Code Camp’s community itself - this forum, our chat rooms, local study groups, our YouTube channel, Medium publication, curriculum - whatever you want.
Now I’d like to acknowledge several campers who’ve been extremely active here on the forum, volunteering their time and expertise:
A huge thanks to these generous human beings for spending their scarce time here, helping their fellow campers!
And finally, a massive thanks to all of you for hanging out, sharing your thoughts, and answering questions. Our community’s forum has already become one of the biggest, friendliest technology forums on the internet, and we’re just getting started!
