Browsing through flipcode
, it occurred to me that a "Tip of the Day" might be an interesting and useful feature for the upcoming java-gaming.org site. (Or, if there are initially not enough contributors, perhaps a "Tip of the Week".)
While I realize that the "Shared Code" forum already serves this purpose to a certain extent, I believe that highlighting
tidbits of useful code would be beneficial to the community. Perhaps the forum could be used to discuss the contribution afterward, like the "Reader Comments" at flipCode. The TotD need not be limited solely to code - ideas, optimizations, and virtually anything else of practical use could be included. For example, "Reducing Game Load Times" was today's (2003-05-05) topic.
