Not very optimistic, are you? It's only been a week and there have always been at least a couple of people surfing the forum everytime I've checked it. Give it time :) It took three years for the C++ forum to gain popularity.
I'm against a gaming board. I bet you guys could have guessed that though, because if I was for it, there would already be one LOL. But basically the reason is because gaming forums and gaming sections bring immature high schoolers and script kiddies to the site, and that's not really the type of audience I want to attract.
I would have thought a qute girl like you would be For a game board ?? I for one think game board would be awsome. Not just for the players but for the programmers as well. The game engines are becoming so complex these days that we need all the help we can get.......;)

It's not that she doesn't like games, she already said that having a gaming board would attract the wrong type of crowd. I agree with her completely.

That's what the game development forum is for. Discussion on games for programmers, which is what I consider real IT.
@niek_e: And I wouldn't worry too much about the game development forum having lots of generic threads, after all, it will take a while to get into full swing. And at least people are posting in it!
There are a lot of people who join forums because they find them on Google when they're having problems programming, eg. they have a problem with C++, they Google "C++ forum". Google then takes them to some forums. With the game development forum, as traffic increases, it will gain a higher ranking in Google. This will cause more traffic, and more intellectual discussions.
