Mint questions are on-topic for both Unix and Linux and Super User. As for a Mint-specific (or any distro-specific site other than Ubuntu) web site, this subject has been discussed extensively (e.g. here) and the current consensus is that Ask Ubuntu is a very specific case.

    I argue the point: Ubuntu is no more specific than any other Linux distribution, so it could have been merged with U&L. Yet, due to strong votes against the merger, Ask Ubuntu still exists. If we have sites for specific Linux distributions, despite them being a possible duplicate of U&L, then it makes no sense for Linux Mint to not have a site on SE, especially with so many people using it. – user145906 Dec 4 '15 at 18:05
  • And elementaryOS I guess.. Very special – Wilhelm Erasmus Dec 10 '15 at 19:26
  • Ubuntu questions are also "on-topic for both Unix and Linux and Super User" – Wilhelm Erasmus Dec 10 '15 at 19:27
  • Linux Mint specific questions are off-topic in Ask Ubuntu. – becko Mar 27 '16 at 8:09
  • Why is ubuntu special? I also argue for distro specific sites. As each distro has its own experts. I vote for SUSE. – dorien Mar 28 '16 at 20:44
  • Maybe we can test demand with a demo? – orschiro Dec 17 '17 at 7:52

If elementaryOS was able to get its own community, will Linux Mint also be able to receive one?

  • Quite possibly, but it will take a LOT of effort to show that it can be separated from U&L. – user145906 Dec 4 '15 at 18:06
  • @BorWal What makes it different from Ubuntu and elementaryOS? IMHO Unix and Linux is more for hardcore Linux stuff. e.g. source-based distros and kernel hacking. – Wilhelm Erasmus Dec 10 '15 at 19:28
  • @BorWal Moreover, I could imagine a lot of questions related to Cinnamon and other projects which are very Linux Mint specific. – orschiro Dec 11 '15 at 12:02
