Will a lot of people that have "web design" questions pay for help?

OpenStudy (joel_the_boss):

Yes, a lot of people not only students could use the help. Maybe it can attract some pro web designers to the site. @poopsiedoodle If your suggesting for a better openstudy.com design then all you had to do was ask. XD No need to beat around the bushes.

OpenStudy (poopsiedoodle):

Well it could use a better design and tons of bug fixes, but that's not the point of the post. The point of the post is to add a web design group and change the currently existing design group to an art group.

Isn't web design a part of Design? There is no point, in my opinion.

OpenStudy (poopsiedoodle):

I see what you're trying to do here, and it doesn't really work for this specific subject. Nice try though. The problem is that the topic of design is incredibly broad, as literally everything that exists has a design. The design group is just kinda there without any real guidelines except those that come from the CoC and T&C. It isn't like the music group, in which the rules have been clearly defined and there aren't any useful suptopics that can be derived from it.

The official suggestion #5: at no point in this thread shall any riders be approved, as this bill is able to move to debate on its own merit.

OpenStudy (thomaster):

Disagreed. Web design is a part of computer science. Should be a subsection in there. And the design group is intended for design, like product design, graphic design, photo editing stuff. Not in the first place for art. Art should have section of it's own.

OpenStudy (thepotatoking81):

@thomaster I agree, even though I partly disagree cause of Poopsie denying my music theory post but becaus Web DESIGN is design

2 years ago
OpenStudy (confluxepic):

@thomaster Art already has its own section. People just use design because they want people to actually see their work. http://openstudy.com/study#/groups/Art%20History Plus Art History is kind of limited to the history of art.

Official suggestion #6: weed out unneccessary/completely dead groups and add a "group suggestion" feature (on OS itself, not a google form or something) in which you suggest groups.

If they are different, then why does web DESIGN have DESIGN in it? WEB DESIGN is just designing in The WEB SO OOOOOPS! LOOKS LIKE I PROVED U WRONG!

2 years ago
OpenStudy (thomaster):

The thing is that web design is done through coding, and coding fits best in computer science, not in design.

2 years ago
OpenStudy (thomaster):

because... product/graphic designers don't necessarily know coding, but someone studying computer science would most likely know how to code for websides.

Acting like a 5 year old does not prove anything other than that you are capable of acting like a 5 year old. As thom said, all of the design that goes into a website is done by typing words, and not actually drawing anything. The current design group was put there to be used for artistic design. Also, by your logic, a lawn chair is the same thing as a lawn, because they both have the word "lawn" in them.

I have never seen them actually chjange a subject, even though they said they would many times. So I think it is one of the master keys that takes a lot of DB effort to change... like cycling through every question in the target subject. =/

How am i acting like a 5 yr old? I just said my opinion like you did to me on the music theory thingy. You said yourself, "You should expect feedback on a suggestion."

"how am I acting like a 5 year old?" If they are different, then why does web DESIGN have DESIGN in it? WEB DESIGN is just designing in The WEB SO OOOOOPS! LOOKS LIKE I PROVED U WRONG! It would seem that you're arguing about something you know nothing about, despite having been proven wrong numerous times. I'll go ahead and do it once more, just for good measure. Music theory is the basis of music. Coding is the basis for web design. As stated above, the design group was made for 3D design-related things. Not coding.

OpenStudy (thepotatoking81):

Well I was wrong about the web design thing. SO WHAT? why make a big deal about it? I didn't know. And the thing about music theory is that you can't learn music through music theory. You can't learn to play flute, clarinet, Trombone, Baritone, tuba, drums, trumpet, french horn, or saxophone by reading a textbook. You have to play an instrument. so music theory is related to Music, but it has nothing to do about learning the main point of music, which is PLAYING AN INSTRUMENT! so if u don't know about that, than you are just stupid. I know this because my band director was one of the top 5 trumpet players in Tennessee, and I'd rather believe a guy who played with ppl like BB King or Allen Vizzuti than an idiot that knows nothing about playing an instrument.

2 years ago
OpenStudy (thepotatoking81):

Oh and to conclude, both of those ppl i mentioned, they are some of the best trumpet players from the 1900's and they told my band director all of those things, so don't pull age on me, cause it isn't gonna work. I know how to play an instrument, and I sure as heck know more about music than you do.

Poopsie, no name calling, even saying someone is a 5 year old. It just makes things worse. Potatoking, "You have to play an instrument. so music theory is related to Music, but it has nothing to do about learning the main point of music, which is PLAYING AN INSTRUMENT!" a composer might argue with that. There are a number that have not really played much, but came up with things for others to play, all of which was based on theory. In any case, please keep the tone to one of discussion, not attack.

@e.mccormick true i agree but i was talking about that usally ppl who play an instrument know more than someone who just know ha to write a song.

OpenStudy (poopsiedoodle):

an idiot that knows nothing about playing an instrument I was 6th chair flute in my group in a regional band event, and there were several hundred people that attended the event. Anywho, you can't play an instrument without having something written down first. I mean, you can, but chances are it's not going to sound good.

Anyway, the main point of this post is to try to get a web design group going.

Could the Web Design possibly be a subtopic in Computer Sciences instead?

I mean, aren't they the same? Computer Sciences deals with coding too right? Or am I mistaken (as usual)? XD

OpenStudy (e.mccormick):

You are not wrong, Star. Web design is a required class in basically every computer related degree and it is also covered in the intro classes, so people in CS generally have at least some exposure to it.

2 years ago
OpenStudy (poopsiedoodle):

but it is also a broad enough topic to have its own group, as there are several languages that are specifically for web design (html, css, js, php, etc.)

eclipsedstar (eclipsedstar):

From what I've seen, the Computer Sciences section isn't really active anyways, wouldn't it be easier for the devs to combine things that are related instead of having to go through the trouble of creating a new subject altogether? Just a thought.

2 years ago
OpenStudy (e.mccormick):

Calculus is large enough to have it's own, or algebra, etc. But splitting it off makes yet another subject to get lost or abused. We really need less main topics and more sub topics because that makes it much easier to track new questions.
