    Dedicated Lua Forum

    I know this is kind of off the wall, and maybe I'm a total noob for suggesting it, but I think there should be a dedicated Lua forum, like the Python forum. Does anyone else think there's a demand for this? Has this been considered?

    Re: Dedicated Lua Forum

    I'll be shocked if there is enough support for this forum. After all, how many Lau questions have already been posted on the forum?

    If you can show support, then we'll consider adding it.

    Brad Has Put up the process used to get a new forum added

    The Python forum was specifically asked far and backed by several users..

    Follow the same process and you might be able to get a LUA forum added..

    Re: Dedicated Lua Forum

    LUA is a newborn and we still feel lack of books and documents for it.
    soon or later LUA will beat python because of its performance.

    i think within the next year having a forum dedicated to LUA will attarct more users to it.

    Never heard of LUA... I don't see a point for such a forum at this time.

    Search the Web? The Lua homepage is the first result for me. I have never seriously looked into the language, but I recall jokes about programming in Lua back in school because I had a classmate whose surname was Lua

    The Lua website states that the first public release of Lua was in 1994, which makes it only about 3 years "younger" than Python.

    OK. Don't think we need a forum for that, anymore than we need a forum for Powershell 2.0

    True, it isn't exactly a new kid on the block, but it's acceptance is quite still in the baby stages. Either way, it isn't impemented on a large enough scale to actually add a forum for it. I can see maybe one question a month in that forum.
