I soon drifted away to the AVRFeaks forum and studio 7.Now Atmel has been bought by PIC, who have missed the value of getting hobbyists who are also professional Engineers on board. Their new compilers and such are now heading away from being free.
To take advantage of this there need to be a different forum to this one.
Teensy has its own forum. I think STMDuino does as well.
I don't find your argument at all compelling. The reason you provide for the need of an "advanced" forum is the presence of posts from beginners. However, it sounds like you are interested in using the forum to ask questions, rather than answer them. So why do you care that beginners are also asking questions in the same forum section?My experience in years of being here is that the advanced users answering questions here are equally happy to answer beginner questions as well as advanced questions, so I don't see a problem with the two being mixed together. Sure, there is probably a higher percentage of beginner questions here, but that's because Arduino is specifically targeted to beginners.
No I don't want to ask questions, you are making assumptions there.I do what I consider as advanced is to do some research and do a few searches on the forum and realizing that nearly all questions have been asked before and not to waste others time. That's why you wont see me putting much on here.
One level below this is asking the same questions again and again. Makes forums tedious and not worth checking.
If some one takes the time to express an opinion isnt that is one of the functions of a forum.
Not falling for the trap of getting into a raging argument.

Anybody understand what this guy is on about?
