I do not understand why there is not a need for a site where one can ask questions, which would offend the experts at superuser.com, for their simplicity. Specifically the description of Super User is: "Super User is for computer enthusiasts and power users", so I thought it would be a good idea with a site with the following description: "Proposed Q&A site for novice users of all sorts of business software, including PowerPoint, Word and so on."

Is this really a duplicate, which would drain the audience from Super User as stated as the reason for closing the proposal.

Proposal: Novice user

1 Answer 1


The site named "Super User" is completely open and welcoming to novices and newbies of all kinds.

  • Ok. In that case you are absolutely right.

    I'm actually slightly worried by our image of being 'only for Super Users'. Because those are typically users who ask esoteric questions and generally search for the answer themselves, rather than ask it on SU...
