I think it would be great if you all posted an assignment a month and had users reply with their source to your assignment. This will allow users to pick up different standardizations and view how other people write their code. This could allow them to pick up some cool tricks that they have never seen before.

I am trying to get back into java(programmed in it for about 3 years and am currently stuck in scriping world) and I think that this would help me out and other users out a ton.

I think this is an excellent idea. Perhaps it could be in the cattle drive forum?

Perhaps there could even be more than one a month. There could be something that was for the beginner, and something a bit more advanced?

Thanks for posting this in the Cattle Drive forum, Randy. I think I'll close this thread so everyone will post their responses to the other one.
