Proposal: Computer Science (Non-Programming)
Gotta admit, I see the point of this. From the look of the proposed questions so far, this would be a solid resource for CS students, who may well find their questions misunderstood or lost in the shuffle on SO.
That said... I feel there's a lot of value to be had in hosting these questions on Stack Overflow. There's already some confusion between SO and Theoretical CS.SE, even though the latter has a fairly narrow, well-defined scope. There's been some discussion on this in the past, and the prevailing opinion seems to be that the community on SO simply can't be relied on to even accept these questions, much less garner proper answers for them... Yet another discussion raises the concern that this would end up being a site entirely for students, with experts finding themselves more comfortable on one of the many existing sites.
I would rather work to fix problems with post-secondary students asking CS questions on SO than try to explain to folks how to differentiate between this, CSTheory, Programmers.SE, and SO. And I would much rather see SO welcoming students at all levels than create some arbitrary demarcation unlikely to be properly understood or agreed upon on any of the related sites. Most of all, I'd hate to lose the opportunity to foster students able to turn and contribute back to the community by forcing them off the site as their education progresses.
Carving off an entirely new site should be the last solution considered. It's hard to go back on that. And if it fails... Well, it's a lot of wasted time and effort.
So what else can we try first? How can we make Stack Overflow - or Programmers even - more effective as a resource for this audience?
