In the FAQ it says this:

The questions on your site say a lot about the community. To attract experts, you need a site where people are asking very interesting and challenging questions, not the basic questions found on every other Q&A site. Your goal is to make it clear that this is a professional site.

I want to create a stack exchange about military thing. But experts won't ever actually show up to be asking questions or look for answers on this type of stack exchange. Because they have far better sources than anything the internet has to offer. So would a stack exchange about military topics be ruled out because of this?

  • Note that "experts" doesn't necessarily mean "people who get paid to know about this"; it means people who are knowledgeable about the topic. So for instance, if the topic of the site were "military aircraft", for instance, then experts in that field would be anyone who knows a lot about military aircraft - not just those who make or fly or repair military aircraft for a living. (Also, don't underestimate the willingness of professionals to educate/teach others!) That said, I'm not taking a position on whether your particular topic is a good one to have a Stack Exchange site for.

    On that note... Could you be a bit more clear? What is the proposed topic of your Stack Exchange - anything related to the military?

  • @V2Blast Effectively any military related stuff that isn't grand strategy or military life. So things like tactics, equipment, unit organisation, etc.
