    Since I'm currently working to become sec mod, I would like the section I work in to be kept clean.*

    I want to create a programming requests where people can request a program (possibly for free since money could complicate things,
    this choice is at the admins discretion) to be made in a language such as C# or Java. *

    -- Also, a Python sub-forum would be great.

    @ OP besides that weird little comment: It seems as if there are a lot of code monkeys here on the website now so this wouldn't be a bad idea. However I don't think adding another forum/sub-forum at this exact moment would be a good idea until everything else is cleaned out and organized.
    "until everything else is cleaned out and organized" that is precisely what I'm attempting to do here. I'm trying to give a little more organisation to the section.
    And while I'm at it I'm hoping that I can try and get people to post their projects on there.

    Not to mention I see a lot of people who are "bored" in the shoutbox and want something to program and ask for something to do; so I don't see how it would be a bad idea. While it would be mostly terrible requests we can add rules to this sub-forum in-hope that the users will abide by them and if not we can trash their threads. An example of a proposed rule could be "don't ask for a custom skype-tool" of something along the lines. At least I'm attempting to do something, while your constructive criticism is invited negative thinking of how it wont work will not get us anywhere. And I have a lot of free time so I might as well try and bring a little life back into the site.

    I'm well aware of this, but from the eyes of a programmer it would be nice to see a sub-forum where one may be able to complete requests of something that one may want.

    Requests would be good but 99% of the request will be: "mek me t00lz that h4x COD on Playstation 7" or "mr skids 1337 Skype t00lz"
    I got demoted because of all the funds from my debit card being stolen (it was one of those ones that you buy from the post office, it was reloadable) and I had a big rant about it and said some things which got me demoted.

    While what you say it is not false we can add rules in place for such occasions; eg "no skype tools". And yeah maybe no one posts it in it but even if it is asking for skype tools it is activity in a section that is dead. So there is no harm what-so-ever.

    The goal is activity here, JB. Adding the sub-forum would be of no resource loss to NGU and we can add rules in place for such problems. And even if it is "make me a skype tool" or "make me an rtm tool" it IS activity in the section, even if it is request based.
