Considero que es.stackoverflow.com es preferible porque: StackOverflow es una marca conocida y reconocida globalmente. Muchos desarrolladores de habla hispana han encontrado el sitio al realizar búsquedas en el Internet y de alguna manera conocen su valor, aunque se ven impedidos de participar debido a la barrera del idioma. Utilizar directamente la marca ...

The asterisk indicates that a proposal has NOT yet met the Minimum Activity Requirements for Area 51. The asterisk (*) was originally visible to employees only so I could see which proposals were still in the submission process before I spent too much time vetting their content. I found it really useful, so I suggested making that information public to ...

I would say no, it wouldn't be a good name. This is supposed to be a site for language learners, and the name reflects that. "Language Overflow" is much more vague - it could be a name of a site for professional linguists, or for people whose hobby is to learn about languages. Here are some more arguments: https://english.meta.stackexchange.com/a/5220/147300 ...

When a proposal nears the end of its Definition, it undergoes a final review by the Community Team to see if and how it fits with the rest of the network. During the final review, any discussions and surrounding activities are considered, and the title and description are finalized in preparation for launch at 100% Commitment. Yes, this site is slated to ...

I believe that the term "Open Source" is the one most accessible to a general audience. People like Richard Stallman make good points about why the term "free software" might be better, but unfortunately the semantics of the term did not enter the general language use. When you use the term "free software", most people still think of free as in beer, not ...

Personally, I think that "Graphics Layer Architecture" sounds broader than computer graphics. But, it probably isn't that good for getting search engine results. I suggest going back to or "Computer Graphics Programming." Even though the scope of a question might not always be about computer graphics (gpgpu, for example). "Computer Graphics Programming" is ...

I don't believe so. The original change came about from a potential branding collision with another Stack Exchange product — but upon further reflection and discussion, it was decided that "Technical Communication" better captured the broader expert/professional/academic audience for which this site is targeted. "Technical Communication" is a well ...

I understand what you are saying, but "English as a Second Language" is non-preferred lingo in educational circles. English Language Learners is the accepted, current terminology for the intended audience. Renaming the site "ESL" will label it as amateur to professionals. Alternatively, English for Speakers of Other Languages is also occasionally used. ...

TheoreticalPhysics theoreticalphysics.stackexchange.com If we are going for longish names (PhysicsTheory is the current favorite). Sure it's long, but surely it is also the easiest to remember, and completely unambiguous.

When a site proposal reaches 45% commitment, it undergoes a series of checks to ensure that it's ready to move on as-is. It eliminates the last-minute gotcha issues that can prevent a site from going into private beta even though it's 100% committed. During this check, Robert (along with the rest of the Community Team, and with help from CHAOS) put a lot ...

It is not yet evident to me that the community has determined that questions are sought only from non-native speakers. Consider the discussions here: Why limit the new group to ESL? Drawing the lines between ELL and ELU English for language users This is not to say that the principal patrons of this site will not be non-native speakers; but why ...

If you want to talk about ML, using the term "AI" instead is so vague that it is misleading. Machine learning is basically a series of tasks (clustering, classification, reinforcement learning, etc) unified only by the fact that they are types of statistical inference. In contrast, artificial intelligence encompasses much larger swath of problems -- ...

PhysicsTheory physicstheory.stackexchange.com It's not too long and completely unambiguous.

Probably should depend on if we welcome other vi clones. If we welcome nvi, elvis, levee, etc., then those aren't vim. But they're all descendants (spiritually at least) of vi. Existing example: the vast majority of questions on Unix & Linux (unix.se) are about Linux, but it uses the more generic term as its URL. [Ok, in reality, not that important. As ...

Yes. We should change the name to "Genealogy and Family History" to be internationally relevant and inclusive. In some usage or cultures, the two terms are used interchangeably; in others, the terms have different meanings. Let's just be inclusive.

As I understand it, the distinction between this and physics.SE is one of level: research-level only for this site vs. educational and research for physics.SE. There isn't anything particularly theoretical about this site (unless it was decided somewhere to leave out the experimentalists, but I haven't seen anything like that). So I would propose something ...

I would not like to see the Latin Language StackExchange co-opted into a Classics StackExchange. As much as I'd like to see a Classics StackExchange succeed, many of us, including me, have a backlog of hard questions about medieval, renaissance, and even contemporary Latin, and the Latin Language StackExchange promises to be the best place on the Internet to ...

Edit: Already implemented this change: Documentation: Proposed Q&A site for information developers, technical communicators, writers, programmers, engineers, and others interested or engaged in documentation. Edit2 (site name changed from "Documentation" to "Technical Communication"): Since the name of the site has changed, there have been a ...

I am a professional pilot, and am looking forward to this site because of the relatively wide scope of it. I happened upon the proposal relatively late, and asked a few questions to try to steer it in a different, more technical direction (mainly questions governing regulations), but we were already too far along in the process for my questions to gain any ...

Suggestion: Manufacturing & Fabrication or Fabrication & Manufacturing Domain: fab.stackexchange.com (Thanks for the suggestion shoul25) Pros Covers both the Manufacturing and Fabrication angles of this proposal.

One thing I don't like about this proposed English as a Second Language name change is that many people I've run across aren't speaking English as a second language. They may speak it as a third language, or a fourth language, but not as a second language. I had a friend in college who told me (quite seriously) that English was her fourth language. Lebanese ...

Total disagreement TL;DR: Literature and books are two very different things. We should not use the most popular medium of literature as title. All the example questions are about literature. Books.SE could very conceivably contain questions about the binding that keeps a book together or the material of book covers or the efficiency of types of printing ...

Suggestion: Digital Fabrication Domain: makers.stackexchange.com Pros The term "Digital fabrication" seems reasonably widespread and the Wikipedia page references many of the technologies this proposal refers to. A google search on "Digital fabrication" currently finds 384,000 results. It doesn't suffer an implicit limit on the size of the machine. Nor ...

Computer Graphics Programming seems to unnecessarily restrict the domain of the site to purely-programatic topics. A resource for computer graphics would seem woefully incomplete if if did not also provide resources aimed at the art and production side of computer graphics. While I could see the desire to target this at the (small subset of) people who are ...

Technical Communication is much more than documentation. Changing the name to documentation will reduce the scope drastically.
