I guess my question is:

what's wrong with the Hardware Forum?

I mean, the focus of this forum is programming. Dream In CODE. One doesn't often code on the hardware itself these days. Regardless, I believe Hardware would cover everything from server racks to Raspberry Pi. What is an electronic device that is neither hardware nor software?

In my opinion the hardware forum is for consumer hardware and not about DIY electronics projects. Also programming microcontrollers for example is different than general programming since a problem can be either in the software or the hardware that the software is controlling.

Right now, are DIY type threads are limited to a couple Arduino tutorials (see one and two), and some stray Arduino and Raspberry Pi discussion threads.

Tutorials receive the most traffic on Google, so they're really the best way to build up the resources for this topic. We also have the blog feature, Share Your Project forum, and other forums to get help and discuss.
