As of Oct 5, 2005, this forum is now locked as part of the improvements listed below. I've moved 2 threads that were active in the last week to "Classic ASP Professional" at:
That's also the best forum here to continue discussions similar to this.
Later this week, I'm going be implementing some changes to the ASP and ASP.NET forums. The changes have 2 purposes. First, we have too many overlapping and redundant ASP/ASP.NET forums right now. Too many people don't know where to ask their questions and their are too many forums for the moderators to monitor. Second, with ASP.NET 2.0 releasing soon, we need to expand and clarify which forums those discussions belong in. With those 2 things in mind, we'll be locking some of the forums so that new posts will no longer be accepted. NO POSTS WILL BE DELETED. Everything that's there will remain. We're not reducing the scope of the topics to discuss, but renaming, expanding, and rearranging where you should post your questions. So, here is what the new ASP/ASP.NET category will look like:
- ASP.NET 1.x Beginners
- ASP.NET 1.x Professional
- ASP.NET 2.0 Beginners
- ASP.NET 2.0 Professional
- ASP.NET Application Design (1.x and 2.0)
- ASP.NET Espanol
- Visual Web Developer 2005
- ASP.NET Web Services (1.x and 2.0)
- Classic ASP Databases
- Classic ASP Espanol
- Classic ASP Beginners
- Classic ASP Professional
- Classic ASP Components
- Classic ASP XML
That means the following existing forums will be locked:
- ASP CDO
- ASP E-commerce
- ASP Forms
- ASP Pro Code Clinic
- ASP Web How-To
- ASPX Professional
- Pro ASP How-To
Please post any questions you would have posted in those forums to the most appropriate remaining or new forum.
Because I know not everyone reads the "feedback" forum where this is posted, I'm taking the unusual step of cross-posting it to all of the ASP.NET forums that will be locked.
Over the new few weeks, I'll also be doing some house-keeping within the .NET categories, C#, VB
, to prepare those for the new releases coming as well.
If you want to comment on this, flame me, etc, please comment to the main thread here which is unlocked:
