Forum Feature Requests

Hello,

I think there should be a story writing section on the forum because I wish to post one story writing quest for the Sample quest. Also, a competition section the forum might be good too.

In my opinion, a story writting section is not really necessary, and it is too soon for a competition section since there is few people using the engine. But the competition section may be cool in the future when many more people start using the engine.

A writing section might help search results leading to solarus. Also, free stories can help game designers. Competition section will get people interested in sharing art and other resources. That would mean small resource packs. All this could lead to a more stable community leading to more solarus users. Although, maybe you are right.

I think a "Code" section where correctly working pieces of code can be shared (similar to the "Game art & music" section) would be a good idea

That is a good idea, but code might have to be updated for different versions of Solarus. Also, the Zelda games have plenty of free updated working code all the time. It would be good for complex scripts. Time systems, Day night, banking, rain, GUI, and etc.
