A Stack Exchange site for Tor (https://tor.stackexchange.com/) exists. Could that site and this one not be merged, since they overlap greatly?

Proposal: Deep Web

    It's a bit sad to see that this question had so much down votes; even if the two SE sites doesn't overlap per their definition, Tor related questions represented an important part of the Deep Web site…

The Deep Web is much greater than just Tor. They should not be merged.

It's like saying we already have a SE for Wordpress so we don't need a SE about CMS in general. That's simply not how it works.

  • Shouldn't Tor be a subtopic of the Deep Web, since it is primarily a way to access and entirely encompassed by, the Deep Web? CMS and Wordpress are very different, since Wordpress also has it's own hosting, etc. Nov 17, 2015 at 15:13
  • @MichelfrancisBustillos It could be, but since it already has it's own SE things get complicated.

    @Mast Apart from that, Tor questions do not have to be deep web quetsions, as TOR questions can involve the config of Torrc, and staying anonymous. It would perhaps be same distance as Apple SE and Superuser

  • @TheBro21 Agreed. It's perfectly plausible to have questions which are on-topic on both sites. As long as this isn't a too big part of the scope the proposal should be fine.

You got other networks like I2P, Freenet, Morphmix, JAP and more.

  • Yes, this is known but Tor is a subset of the Deepweb, so why should it have a separate SE site, not just a subtopic? Dec 28, 2015 at 17:46
  • @Michelfrancis For Tor to be a subtopic of Deepweb stack, there should be a Deepweb stack. Thus the proposal. Just as you are suggesting. Jan 5, 2016 at 4:03

    @NickAlexeev I completely agree, I am not saying that there should not be a DeepWeb stack, but that a DeepWeb stack should be created and the Tor stack merged with it, or the Tor stack turned into a DeepWeb stack. Jan 5, 2016 at 13:31
