I think it would be useful to add a section for php facebook applications.

Good idea, i'd also like to see such a section on the forum if possible

Because the facebook section on stackoverflow is kind of confusing.

IMO even their own forums are confusing; good if you are already into it but real tricky if you're new at writing the applications

We (the mods/admins) are generally quite hesitant to create new forums unless there is a demonstrated need. To date I don't recall seeing a single question on Facebook apps, so I don't think a separate forum is yet necessary.
Real programmers don't comment their code. If it was hard to write, it should be hard to understand.

2 times in my life I wanted to discuss php facebook apps in this forum, but didn't know where to put it. So discussed it in the facebook forum and then on stackoverflow.

@pickle what's the average amount of requests that would make the mods / admins consider such a section?

@klevis - I would imagine the best place for it would be PHP Code.
@social_experiment - I can't give you a solid number. Basically there has to be enough that the majority of active admins notice the volume, and agree the topics are unique enough (ie: they don't fit into an existing forum) to warrant their own forum.
