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 metaphor. If you want to include anything that uses a type of syntax to communicate ideas, architectural diagrams would be on topic; so would algebraic systems,...

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) language. More concretely, I think that we should focus on languages intended for communication between humans (or sentients, at any rate), not a language for ...

Per this answer and this answer, the problem of site overlap can reasonably be handled by considering the context of a question before deciding where to ask it. If you want feedback from programming experts about a gamification implementation, ask on Programmers. If you want feedback from gamification experts about a gamification implementation, ask on ...

Creating a comprehensive, all-encompassing, community-driven site for programming tutorials and guides is a great idea. But it's not what the stackexchange Q&A system is made for. You can tell from the fact that you suggest an unique process to handle "questions" which is quite different from how stackexchange websites usually work. Instead of abusing ...

Area 51 is currently accepting proposals for subjects not already covered by our existing communities. We generally do not split off individual tags simply to give a topic its own space. With 125,000+ questions for Git* on Stack Overflow, SO has already become the de facto hub of support for this subject worldwide. Stack Overflow and Stack Exchange have ...

This sounds like an interesting site, but this is an entirely different project from how Stack Exchange works. Stack Exchange simply was not built to handle all the back-and-forth collaboration you envision, so you are trying to build your project on a very shaky foundation with a lot of missing pieces. We get a lot of requests to create sites for ...

Like Philip, I also believe that this is a completely unfeasible proposal within SE, and not what SE is for. To make that more concrete, let me point out the many ways in which SE is NOT suitable for this process, by analysing the parts of the process you describe above which are not in any way supported by the SE platform. In item 1, following the ...

Primarily because "homework" is not specific subject of study to build a community around. A "Homework Stack Exchange" would be a catch-all site to ask about virtually any subject; a place where users go because of why they're asking rather than what subject the question covers. That isn't how we scope out sites, essentially the same reason as: Why isn't ...

If you can’t find a Stack Exchange site on your subject of expertise, Area 51 the place you can propose one. It's a community-driven process where groups of experts come together to build new Q&A sites that work just like Stack Overflow. You can read more about that process here: http://area51.stackexchange.com/faq. But this forum (the one you're on now)...

I would imagine that most of the purely technical aspects of gamification are probably better asked elsewhere. While I am a developer, gamification implementation questions really are more dependent on the language you are using and what you are trying to accomplish. It's generally more of a coding problem than a gamification problem. Using your own ...
