Though current happenings would add a lot of content on this site but the content will surely be outdated very soon. I appreciate opinions on this.

Thank you.

Proposal: India


The problem with a proposal intended to discuss current affairs is this:

  • The information may become out of date very quickly. Stack Exchange Q&A is designed to help future visitors for years to come. This would lead to a lot of questions that are "too localized":

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, see the FAQ.

  • The proposal explicitly mentions "discussions", which are not what Stack Exchange is about. This would likely lead to lots of posts that are "not constructive":

As it currently stands, this question is not a good fit for our Q&A format. We expect answers to be supported by facts, references, or specific expertise, but this question will likely solicit debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion. If you feel that this question can be improved and possibly reopened, see the FAQ for guidance.

As it stands, I'm not sure this would be a viable Stack Exchange proposal.

    Agreed! The Indian SE must follow the SE rules too – noob Oct 17 '12 at 2:41
  • I think the discussion or answers can be a source of reference for future visitors about the things that happened, so this proposal has the potential to be a good source of knowledge. – DroidDev Jun 25 '13 at 9:02
