I remember there being web dev forum back in the day, I was surprised to see it gone when I need to do some research. This is bad timing for me at least considering I have been in talks to make web games with HTML5.

So is there any chance to bring it back? Games like Farmville rake in goo-gobs money and other browser based games are bigger than they were years ago. Web based games have specific issues like dealing with browser compatibility and server issues.

With the uniqueness of it's dev issues, it continued relevance in the industry, and the specialized skills it takes to make them, I don't see how Web Development doesn't deserve it's own forum over say Production and Management or APIs and Tools.

I think it was lack of traffic that took down the Web Dev forum. I made a comment about it being down as well. And would like to see it back too.

I think there are a couple topic areas that could probably be put back into their own forums (but probably sub-forums most likely). Part of the reorganization was to clean up some of the accumulated cruft, but there appears to be some very real needs for a separate forum in some areas.
