There's a few other online communities for engineers about. I'm wondering if we should start to advertise the (upcoming) engineering SE.
- shorter time till completed commitment phase
- larger, more diverse pool of users in the beginning of the new SE site
- The SE format might scare away user more used to classical forums, so maybe the site should be fairly active before we draw these users
- I at least don't know if the new SE site we are building wil be great, so I hesitate to tell anyone 'hey, support this great new site we're building!'
If you think we should 'advertise' already, maybe we can create a small text about what we hope the new site will achieve and how the format differs from other sites and what 'commitment' would mean right now, that one can adapt for specific forums.
