We had a private beta before that folded due to lack of participation. The questions from there weren't an insignificant amount, were distributed amongst other SE sites where appropriate. Since this second go 'round is close to a private beta, are those questions gone for good? Is there a way to get them back?
But don't do this too much! The previous attempt failed because there wasn't enough content. Artificially adding a couple dozen questions during the first week would not help the growth potential of the site. If this proposal doesn't draw more traffic, it won't be any more viable than the first one.
