digitalmars.D - Suggestions to improve D language

Suggestion for the creator of D language to form two things:
1- An open source project on sourceforge for example, not on Apache because it
adopts JAVA as its intrinsic language for all projects and C++ but we may
investigate that. This project will be as a place holder for all projects
proposed by D language community, like the ones we proposed above.
2- To construct a process that defines how these projects are proposed and
implemented by D community, u know, some thing like JCP I told u about for JAVA
community.

You must understand that Walter is a very busy person. And we'd be most happy to see him busy with what he does best.

Mwaahhahahahhhh! Looks like: "so, u b m8 sl8vz & u 1mpl8m8 wat 1 (or teh c0m1t8) s8!" Just read again what you wrote. :> We are not many. People just post their ideas here, and thus find other people who might participate. One can also post a project at DSource and wait for help. The community is held together by discussion and collaboration, and not by someone defining what everyone should do.
 u know

No, u doesn't. And you are the first person to my awareness to seriously try this sort of grammar here. As a special exception, i allow myself to write myself small, just because it doesn't offend anyone else, and so that my importance doesn't get overemphasized. Welcome anyway. If you have any difficulties, don't hesitate to read the manual or the Wiki (http://www.prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?FrontPage), but if this doesn't help just ask here. -eye

Expect this to be more common as texting proliferates. (I had no trouble with his[MNour's] abbreviation, but I couldn't read your parody. Still, expect texting slang to proliferate into places where it didn't previously exist. It's more reasonable than "l33t speak" (or however they spell it). When you only use your thumb to type with and use a slow modem (possibly paying by the character transmitted), abbreviations make a lot more sense than they would otherwise, and become habitual.

l33t (or leet) --> Elite m8 (in this context) --> my (as pronounced with a southern U.S. accent, I believe). "so, u b m8 sl8vz & u 1mpl8m8 wat 1 (or teh c0m1t8) s8!" I think says ... "So, you are my slave and you implement what I (or the committee) say!" I have a 17-yo son who does this childish writing all the time. I can't wait until he grows up and wants to communicate to a wider audience. -- Derek Melbourne, Australia 7/10/2004 10:35:30 AM
