I suddenly came across the feeling of their should be a forum where actually one can put his programming experience(along with other life experience of variety of meaningfull things) like the ups and down one faces and is facing during his career,what to do when some other came across the same situation,their one can ask specifically about the bad things he is facing("for the") and how to get out of it.their is a about section in the MyProfile page that should also be merged with it so that whenever somebody writes something about him/her,one can see all the things( about ones good habit and making a difference with what is a bad one) at a single place about everyone.actually when i need to know about someone i have to perform several clicks( and for everyone ),maybe this forum can help in such conditions.
Apologies if i have wrote or ask for a dumb stuff on the Ranch.

Thankyou,
kind regards,
praveen.

Hi praveen,

On Ranch we don't have stupid, silly or dumb questions or requests, so no worries
Other way round, your request is perfectly reasonable. Have a cow for taking care of Ranch welfare.

Have you ever discovered Introductions forum? (<- link)
I see people discussing there very similar things you have mentioned.

Please have a look and tell us if it is what you are expecting.

Hello Liutaurus,How are you doing?

Actually the reference forum just carries a bit of what i am expecting.generally in it one introduces him by saying what or how much he knows java and putting some question if he has their.that's it,nothing beyond that.most of the times the post has been made by a beginner.

What i want is--->
. link the About section of myprofile page with the forum so that one can read about many others at a time without performing plenty of clicks for one by one.

. this forum should have most of the post by Trail Boss,authors,MarshalCommander,Marshal,sherrif.. as they are well experienced,they must have gone through some ups and downs in their career,so why don't they better share those things here that can moralize others,one can also treat those things as a lesson to be kept for future situation handling.i am talking about people like Jean,Campbell,Bear...etc..

. What actually is a Good Habit and which is a Bad one.

. Not only the things related with programming but one should also post about other difficulties he has faced(but should be meaningful) and how actually one tackles it.like sometimes people gets diverted from the fair way by some means and gets into the bad one so their if one come backs,he should post it how actually he does so that others know about it.

bla..blaa..blaaa
these are all the things IMHO.

Thanks.
kind regards,
praveen.

For example- if we talk about mala gupta who just had wrote a book for java 8 certification and its promotion is ongoing on ranch.she must have came across some difficulties while she is writting,like which example is suitable for better understanding what made her to choose one,her strategy for promoting it and several other things.how could be if she share those experience in my required type of forum.definitely that helps other authors when they start writing.this is just a specific case.their are other things too,which actually comes in front if someone give it a start.

hope you understand me vilda.

Don't you think that these things could be very personal, sort of from diary series and not all the people would like to share it with the rest of the world?
I'm not saying it is like that, but trying to address those possible issues. In case that wouldn't be a problem, those people would need to sit down and write all those stories.
I'm sure not all people would like to do that, and I'm 100% sure about some who wouldn't do that, regardless how well their experience of up'n'downs told in a story would suit for other Ranch members.

I can assure your thoughts will be discussed behind the bar, but no guarantee that somebody will be willing to maintain such forum and write their stories. Let's see if somebody else pops in with other thoughts.

Yes, I do understand, got your idea in full. This given example just confirmed me that.

i have just post this topic because may be this opinion could help others or could make ranch better in "about people" perspective.

and Vilda i also feel people get shy when they came across to share things like above mentioned don't know why but this is a human nature.

Hi praveen,

As promised, we have discussed your suggestion about a candidate new forum which you described as "ups and downs" in a workplace, daily life and how to succeed or perform if/when you face them.

However, the general concensus was, that we do have enough related forums where members can address such questions and share their experiences.

We couldn't think about the better place to discuss all job related question than Job Discussions (<- link) forum. To express more personal concerns or share own success stories people can in our Blog Around the Campfire (<- link) forum, feel free to have a look at it.

You also have mentioned specific staff names (authors, senior Ranch members) you'd be interested to follow and learn from their knowledge bagadge and how they perform when they face issues. As mentioned earlier, that could be personal, and not necessarily everyone would be willing to share such experience, so, if they are or will be willing to do so, I believe you'd be able to find such stories in their blogs.

Some of the blogs you could find below:
  • Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff
  • Junilu Lacar
  • Jesper de Jong

  • Might there are more Ranch members who have their blogs and willing to share, so they can do so here. Other than that, you could try to search on Internet, and you might find more than I did

    Thanks for your suggestion anyway.

    Of course sometimes there could be exceptions if those questions are asked by our Troll TrailBoss

    Liutaurus let me handle this!
    I have found an answer.
    @Paul you should like it because - Pie is the perfect food. You can make one as simple as pie. There is nothing as american as apple pie. Pot pie is wonderful to make with leftovers whether out of turkey, chicken, beef or just vegetables. If your fruit is a little soft you make a pie out of it. Apple, lemon meringue, berry, pecan, coconut cream, chocolate cream, key lime, pumpkin, sweet potato, even mince meat, I like pie.

    hahahaha....

    Ahem .... 


    While paddling up shit creek in your canoe and all four tires fall off, how many pancakes does it take to build a doghouse?


    What is is?


    Are you really you?


    Can I feel the sky?


    Have you stopped beating your husband?


    12?


    ---

    I just wish to express that there are stupid, silly or dumb questions.   I just think that if a person askes stupid, silly or dumb questions, they are less likely to be called out as stupid, silly or dumb on this site.

    Agreed. And probably that is why CodeRanch is considered as a friendly place.

    Hi Praveen. We have had more discussions on it and finally we created a forum which is called Soft Skills. Please check it and use it once you need it.
