Do programming languages have a place within Conlang discussion, and why or why not?

Possibly… but probably not in way you are implying. I think calling a conventional programming syntax a "language" in the context of this subject space is playing a bit fast and loose with the ...

Would a general Languages.SE supersite (synchronized with the current language sites) be feasible?

Yes, please. This is a very good idea. Sure, a question tagged samoan or greenlandic might not get much attention, but as long as there are enough people passing by to get rid of spam and poor ...

Do programming languages have a place within Conlang discussion, and why or why not?

The problem is that all programming languages are constructed (yes, even Common Lisp), so basically anything about programming would be on-topic in this case, since all have to use a (constructed) ...

Should questions about Ukrainian written in Russian be allowed here?

Native language should be allow at least in chat groups

Why was a proposal for a non-English site closed, based on a policy from 6 years ago?

There are more considerations to be had than just having some existing tooling in place to support it (e.g. do we use something like es.cooking.se.com or different domains entirely, and what happens ...

Will another proposal for Stack Overflow in another language be acceptable now?

No, nothing has changed since then and there is still nothing planned. We will not accept entirely non-English site proposals. For future readers: we will announce if this ever changes. We won't ...

Would a general Languages.SE supersite (synchronized with the current language sites) be feasible?

Yes, this would work. Let's take an example of Engineering Stack Exchange which is a generic Engineering site accepting questions from all branches of Engineering. (There are some core branches of ...

What are the advantages of single language sites over collective ones?

From a linguistic perspective, it would definitely make a lot of sense to group smaller languages into a single Q&A site based on their linguistic proximity. None of the problems mentioned by @...

Would it be a better idea to propose "Indian Languages"?

The best way to find out is to try. Sanskrit is 10 months old and Hindi is 5 months old, neither is doing really well. Go ahead and Make the proposal

Why were sites in other languages accepted before?

Would a general Languages.SE supersite (synchronized with the current language sites) be feasible?

I'd be happy if such a site could take off. My experiences with the last two or three Arabic proposals (after closure of the Beta) were really disappointing. It seems either the community has resigned ...

I think, they should be allowed. I see no reason to forbid them. Something, that is easy-too-google for native speaker, may be almost-impossible-to-google for novice learner (IMO, successful googling ...

Can we open proposals to complete the "Trilogy" sites in languages already having StackOverflow?

Not yet. There are two barriers to accomplishing this. One of them relates to why we'd see value in expanding the trilogy in different languages, and the other relates to our ability to allow those ...
