The Best Outdoor Q&A Site Ever
… hasn’t been created yet.
There are Q&A sites all over the place like Yahoo Answers and a variety of others but they are terribly designed and full of junk. You have no idea who’s answering your question and if what they say has anything behind it.
Originally designed as a Q & A platform for computer programmers, the StackExchange universe has expanded to include everything under the sun. There’s a catch though.
All the ideas for the future sites are incubated in Area 51, where they must gain enough supportive users to push them to the next stage of incubation. One of the requirements is a long list of on and off-topic questions that could end up on the future site. The idea is that the flaws in the idea need to be flushed out before the site goes live. This is done in the Definition stage.
Once enough example questions and answers are posed then they move the site into the commitment stage. This is where things get tough. If a site doesn’t enough users to pledge their commitment to it, it doesn’t go anywhere. It doesn’t launch and start to clutter up the already cluttered world of the internet.
So, with the introduction out of the way, here’s the reason for this post. We need your help.
A small number of adventurous computer-users have committed to helping the Great Outdoors StackExchange site get off the ground. But to take it all the way we need you in there too. You and everyone you know should sign up. And commit to the Great Outdoors site. All you need to do is sign up and say that you’ll help. What we need is numbers to get the site going and then it will take care of itself.
