Proposal: English Language Learners
It seems the concern here is creating a separate forum for folks to ask basic English questions, and I can't help but wonder... why? There's already a forum for asking questions about English (EL&U)... why not just broaden it to include both basic as well as advanced questions? I don't see Stack Overflow, for instance, trying to push all coding questions that are 'too basic' to a separate SE site. Is it necessary or valuable to do so?
Advantages of having only one site:
- Folks looking to find answers need only search in one forum.
- Folks looking to ask questions don't have to worry: "Is my question too basic for this site? Too advanced for that one?"
- Folks looking to answer questions only have to visit one forum.
- Less bookkeeping closing questions or migrating them back and forth.
What are the corresponding benefits to splitting up the sites?
