good question - we don't really have a home for it I'm afraid!
Hi. I posted a Vulkan question on SO yesterday. That's completely unrelated to you, but I suddenly came to think of Codidact, and that I made an account long ago. Now I wonder, if I was to ask that question here, on which subsite would I post it? My Vulkan question is not constrained to a particular language, so where would it go?
i need help , can you tell me the best code for fizz buzz program for golf coding
@GreenDragon that's definitely a good article. I work at EA and someone linked it there earlier and I really enjoyed the read.

I've added most of those, and I'll chew over the rest :)
I guess it is `boost`, `multithreading`, `ranges`, `qt` , `network-programming or just networking` ... so it should be or specific widespread library or specific area maybe `stl`/ `C++20` / `templates`. I'm also not fun about `string` or `arrays` tags.
Maybe special tag `homework`.
have you thought about what tags will be for in this community? SE goes a bit mad with tagging, and I think it's best to add only 'useful' tags, i.e. things that people will likely want to filter a search on

that does sound more likely to work but I'm no C++ expert :)
Well after a bit re-thinking, really this can be adopted to wide question about specific concept itself, so it will be valid.
"Message passing between threads" (as common question) and "How Golang-channels can be implemented in C++" (and in the answers will be good to provide link for some OS libraries for illustration). But ... sometimes it's not always obvious and initial version of Q may be like "Channels in C++ how?" or something like that.
Yup, I am not talking about stuff like GUI (there are enough awesome lists on Github), only about rarely cases that could be interesting people with experience in other programming languages.
generally we want questions that lend themselves to one or two good answers, just like on SE — "what library that implements this concept" is generally unlikely to be that kind of question in general, but it may depend on the particular concept…
Are questions about libraries appropriate here? For example some time ago I was re-writing some application from Go where used channels. Therefore I wanted to find a library that implement this very useful concept. Quick search on Github gave me some options but other hosting service like Gitlab or less popular (like sourcehut that in alpha stage now) haven't good search mechanism (maybe yet but still).
And of course some comments about use cases would be useful as well.
I saw that one, that's why I got here. As an aside, the notification for this message was missing the link to the room when I got it. Not sure how to reproduce, when I changed the room (there was another notification) this one got the link.

>OK @Jonathan, let's give it a go: https://topanswers.xyz/cplusplus — thanks for the vote of confidence and for your enthusiasm — we'll continue to try and encourage others to participate, but if there is reasonably regular activity in there I think it's likely that we'll gradually get people joining. Perhaps even a few from reddit :)
