Hi, I've been using this bord alot for asking questions. But sometimes I would like to just discuss things or read about experiences and ideas from people interested in .net core. I feel these message bords, as well as stack overflow, is not suitable for
that. It probably has something to do with the incentive to reward answers and thus we get an atmosphere that is very streamlined to asking and recieving, and this is not always ideal for me.
I can't seem to find any good messageboards for programming or .net. All messageboards like this or at dreamincode.net are all too chaotic and have too many subforums. This is not a good way to stimulate conversations and debate. I feel such forums must
be made with more social intelligence and incentives should reflect that. Because if incentive is just to get a reward to answer a question, the answer is more often times short and both answer and question is hurt by this. Another thing is that if users
see that the questiong thread has been marked as answered, people think the thread is over. Changing from marking answers to "likes" would go some way to remedy this.
We need to find a better way for making discussion boards for .net. I can't stress how important this is for creating and maintaining a vibrant community. Yet I see little effort of doing so. Isn't that strange, or is it just me who can't find the communities
that exist? It should be easy for Microsoft to take the incentive to do this. I would be more than happy to contribute.
The nature of any "nerd" message board that i've seen has this main problem: Everything gets reduced to smaller components. Then you get rules that is set to maintain this. You start with some general categories, like "asp.net", "c#". Then someone is annoyed
in how to make new posts too, so now you must ask questions in a specific way, and they must all be questions.
There are more tendencies and concequences than these(but i wont write a book about it).

Perhaps a User Groups in your area would be a good fit.
Since, ironically, you started a discussion, I have a different view. I find folks have a tendency to complain when they can't find information presented in a format that they feel is best for their own personal learning experience. The complaints come
in various forms; there's no documentation, I don't understand the docs, the doc don't have what I want, I'm trying to solve a specific problem but I can't find the solution in the docs, just give me the answer. and etc. The complaints generally end with,
someone needs to do something about this and I think it should be X.
If you feel strongly about your idea to build a better discussion forum and feel your idea will enrich the community then by all means do it. There's nothing stopping you. Forums are free and you can set one up with whatever rules you like.
By the way, there is a free for all section in this forum.

It seems that 's codeproject.com of Microsoft:For example: https://www.codeproject.com/
In there , people tell their experiences and ideas in details and it compared the project requirement at most example;
As personal , i like this site .maybe you could join it yet and share your ideas in it; hope you could find something good from it;
