My take on this is two-fold: First, SynBio is an extremely cross-disciplinary pursuit. This means that often the answer to a question doesn't fall into a category neatly. For example, my answer to your example question about differences between GFPmut3, EGFP, and sfGFP would be to point people to GFPmut3, despite the fact that it's an objectively worse ...

Part of the Area 51 process is finding people familiar with the network model and know how other sites on our network operate. That experience is necessary in order for a new site to function properly. Reputation on Area 51 is extremely different than on other sites. You can easily get large amounts of it by just having been the person to propose the site or ...

Stake Pool Operators currently have several places to find information. This would just be another one IMO. These are some I am currently using Cardano Stake Pool Best Practices Telegram: https://t.me/CardanoStakePoolWorkgroup CoinCashew Resources: https://www.coincashew.com/coins/overview-ada If this becomes an official site, I could see this being a ...

This has been discussed before countless times on Meta Stack Exchange: Why isn't providing feedback mandatory on downvotes, and why are ideas suggesting such negatively received? Encouraging people to explain downvotes Such a policy would not be enforceable and it doesn't solve the problem.

Great points, but the biggest challenge at the moment is how to drive traffic here to get some genuine questions to be answered. There is nothing wrong with having overlapping places to get answers (especially in the early stages). Over time, various platforms will have distinct subcultures that gravitate towards them. e.g. Devs to here, governance to ...

There are many Cardano related questions on stack overflow that are not tagged with "Cardano". Other community specific terms include Plutus, Marlowe, Oroboros, Daedalus and others. When searching on stack-overflow for many of these terms there are many results that are unrelated to Cardano that need to be filtered out or skipped. Having a ...

Yes, this is a better platform than telegram for FAQ's, technical help, scoring of answers etc. Telegram is great for joining in discussions that are hot/current topics, but not so good for finding the best answers to a specific question.

That post is admittedly outdated - it was posted over five years ago now and I wish it could easily be removed from the close reason because some of what is stated in it is no longer relevant. Simply put: no progress has ever been made on expanding our site internationalization. As far as I know, no progress was ever slated to be made. We do not have the ...

I'm pretty sure it will be closed as a duplicate of Super User (and/or Server Fault, for Windows administration questions), even if you had an organization to support it. The existence of other sites whose scopes fall within or overlap significantly with (iOS questions are off-topic on Super User) doesn't matter. That happened a long time ago when rules for ...

To me it's because in platforms like SE you can not cover al chemistry nor biology in a single place. In the information era we would like to filter and focus our attention in delimited fields, like SynBio. Synthetic Biology even has its own nomenclature and metaphors so we talk in terms of genetic circuits, the repressilator, PoPs, MEFL, connect this NOR ...
