Restart “Graphic Design” as “Design”?

Proposal: Graphic Design

On the meta for this beta site ( https://graphicdesign.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/96/creating-a-firm-plan-to-increase-readership-lets-get-out-the-vote), they are proposing a scope change to include a lot of additional categories, including several that overlap with other proposals:

  • Web Design (overlap with SO)
  • UI/UX Design (overlap with UX.SE)
  • Comics (overlap with Comic Books and Making Comics)

I'm sure there are more, these were just what I saw with a brief search.

Isn't the point of SE to NOT have sites with massive overlap, so one site doesn't take traffic from another? I believe that their proposed changes (supposedly approved by Jeff and Robert) are now far too broad in scope for a SE site.

    This was closed as duplicate, but when I click the link to the alleged original, that question was removed totally! I think this is a somewhat interesting question, though not burning hot - maybe it could be unclosed? (I don't have re-open capability here)
