Currently, the arts and crafts stack specifically forbids questions regarding "non tangible" art, and there doesn't seem to be a place in any of the technology related stacks relating to AI art.

Would it be more productive to approach the arts and crafts stack with a motion to expand the scope of the existing stack to be more inclusive (and has this been tried before), or to move forward with the creation of a new stack.

There is an existing community off board.

    Why are you asking here? A51 is not the place to spam ideas or drum up support. If you don't already have a community that needs this, no, there is no appetite, for any proposal idea you might have.

Is there any appetite for a Stack based on xxx?

As users of A51, we simply can not tell. What matters is not whether the people on Stack Exchange want a Stack for a certain topic. What matters is whether the people invested in the topic want to create a Stack.

There is an existing community off board.

Great! Ask them if they are interested in creating a Stack. The people on here are not your target audience because even if we find such a Stack interesting in theory, we lack the expertise or commitment to make it work (and those on here that have both are also part of other communities where they can be reached).

Note that the community also needs to be large enough to support a proposal.

  • I don't know. There appears to be some overlap with existing sites like ai.SE. Crafts.SE may allow some questions about AI art. Webapps.SE has a few questions about chatGPT, so questions about, say, Midjourney would not be out of the question. Since I am not a regular on these stacks, I would urge you to check for yourself if your questions have a place there.

  • Craft.SE specifically forbids questions about AI art unless it involves using an AI as part of the process to produce a tangible product. AI.SE doesn't have much patience for the artistic side, as opposed to the technical side. May 16 at 16:46
