in reply to Visibility of code-like sections...

Perhaps merging the three sections into one would be useful. It seems to me that the three sections are just variations of the same classification; i.e. "post code that you've written that isn't part of a SOPW or Meditation."Perhaps put it all as Code

I agree with blazar that posts in these categories seem neglected; I have a hunch that posters to these categories would like more feedback on their code than they are getting. Monks may be in the rut of "Please frame your post in the form of a question":) I think that the more knowledgeable monks would be able to provide suggestions for improvement based on fairly quick scans of posts in these categories.

    If some form of tagging was implemented it would be easier to merge the three categories and then just tag them as appropriate. Maybe let monks vote on the tagging as well. There are other uses such as being able to tag a post as off-topic. Probably easier said than done though.

      Yeah, I wholeheartedly agree. There's already been some talk about this and such a system seems to be already in place, somehow. A tagging system would solve many problems at once, and not only this specific one of code-like sections. It would give an alternative to those wanting "a new section for"... it would reduce the number of sections actually very similar to each other... it may comprise special, "official", tags that would help triggering specific actions, and so on. I dream of a truly tag-powered PM, like those social bookmarking sites, but... better than them, because this is PM!
