There seems to be a gulf between the old, closed Astronomy site, and this new, up and coming Astronomy proposal. Can't someone put a link on the old site to point to the new? Wouldn't that ignite new interest and get more committers over here?
I understand this is called a reboot, when a closed site is similar or identical to a newer proposed site.
Similar question here: How do I engage users from a closed proposal to inform they about a similar active proposal?.
My problem is that a closed site invites with a link on the right
You could try proposing a variation of this site...
without any provision for showing one or more that have already been proposed. This wastes good effort:
- Visitors to the old site must hunt around for new proposals.
- Intrepid proposers discover too late that their proposal is redundant.
What's worse, this results in an excessive diversity of proposals. There should be a way to add links to a closed site indicating it is being rebooted.
