What Would You Do With WP-Hackers.com?

WordPress community member Kris Young has registered the domain WP-Hackers.com which so far, points to a holding page. The question Kris asks on the WP-Hackers mailing list is what do to with it. His idea so far is to create a PasetBin like site where users could comment on code snippets until an agreed upon solution was met which would then lock the snippet and be used as a resource. This code snippet could then be linked to when someone asks a repeated question or one similar to it.

I’ve always thought about the idea of a website that just has code snippets where a user could copy and paste them into the appropriate location and it would work. Back in the days of editing archive.php, single.php, etc, I really thought the idea of some sort of code bank would have been awesome. Let’s say I was editing my theme and needed a code snippet that displayed comments in a certain way, I could look through the comments category and look for code snippets for the desired functionality I was looking for. Ideally though, this information would be better served as being within the Codex than on a seperate site.

If you were lucky enough to own WP-Hackers.com, what would you do with the domain to make it useful for the WordPress community?

  1. What do you mean by “Back in the days of editing archive.php, single.php, etc?” That’s how you build and modify themes. I still do that, and I assume that the large percentage of WordPress users haven’t bought into framework bloatware…
