I feel will should have a section for discussion of modification development, since there are many mod authors that are active on these forums, like Reika and Covert. It would be nice to discuss stuff like standards and whatnot.
The implementation of a Mod Developing section on our forums, would be a lot different from the forge forums. All that goes on in that forum is Q/A but here people come for the latest mod facts/updates and maybe with that they can do some other things and answer questions.People learning about modding with forge really should join the forge forums and/or IRC. I'd expect this forum section to be more about the artistic/conceptual side of the development, rather than the technical.
