Let's take things slowly. The site has been public for less than a day. We need the site to grow gradually. To accommodate an increasing number of questions, we also need an increasing number of answerers and of janitors.
Our roadmap should look somewhat like this:
- Private beta. Small experiment, establish some basic rules. (Done.)
- Public beta. Let people discover the site naturally. (Just started.)
Already at this stage, whenever SR is mentioned, be sure to mention our question quality guidelines.
- Accept moderator-initiated migrations from other Stack Exchange sites. We'll work out a protocol for how moderators (who may not be familiar with SR) should decide when to migrate, based on our experience from the early public beta.
- Progressively start mentioning the site in more and more places. At this stage, I expect that sites such as Stack Overflow, Super User, Android, Programmers, Security (not intended to be an exhaustive list) which currently have a close reason about recommendations will reference our site. The close reason must prominently mention our quality guidelines.
- If this site graduates¹, then the aforementioned close reason may turn into a migration target — but only if we have confidence that migrations will tend to be of sufficient quality, which is doubtful.
For the time being, I request that whenever people mention SR.SE, they mention the quality guidelines. On Ira's MSO question, I've proposed comment templates to use on SR.SE question candidates and on “Ask on SR” comments that lack a link to the guidelines; SR regulars: please comment on my MSO answer if you disagree wiht my wording.
¹ “If” rather than “when” not only because this site might fail, but also because it might succeed: if we manage to establish quality guidelines that can be followed on other sites, then SR has no reason to exist and can be folded back into the natural sites.
