I understand that you guys seem to have 1 category into which all questions here flow... but it would be really nice to have a dev forum.
What do you guys think about this scenario:
Create a category for developers and hide it for all people who do not have a developer role on the forum. Create a sticky for people to post for access. This thread can be monitored by a moderator (I'd volunteer for a while)
Not sure if the mod tools are currently that fine grained, but... it's an idea.
