I'm afraid I don't really understand the question. we should change the site name (if enough interest) to something that appeals to all users interested in Comp Science, not just the teachers. This site is meant for the teachers, and is therefore meant to be primarily interesting to teachers. For general questions about Computer Science, please vist ...

Migration paths unlock on site graduation. Until then, you can flag for moderator attention and ask them to migrate it to some specific site click flag: and then and in the box describe why and to which SE this should be migrated.

This is a great idea! In fact, we already have just such a system. But there are a few caveats: The system that exists is designed for serious issues that are outside the bounds of the community entirely (such as disciplinary matters). Using such a system to help posters with their questions would move the central work of defining what is on-topic from the ...

I don't see why “issues” would be inappropriate or misleading in this context. We do have issues. What we don't have is an issue with computer science education. I do agree that “issues with + noun” is weird here. I propose “specific issues related to computer science education” or “specific issues with teaching computer science”. Moderators can change this ...

I'm a little perplexed by this topic. The fact that we even made it to private beta says quite a bit about the number of people interested in the site. We are merely scratching the surface right now of what this community can become. I also don't think "open and broad" is a goal; we want focused, researched, objective, and precise. That's great that you are ...

This is a great idea and I'm very disappointed in me for not thinking of it myself weeks ago. That's a bad Pops! No cookie. As others have pointed out already, Stack Exchange no longer has integrated blogging, but the Worldbuilding community has a successful blog going on over at Universe Factory. They use Medium, so there's no money involved. The TeX and ...

Migrations are difficult to get right, so generally it's easiest just to leave a comment to let the OP know that they're not in the right place, and suggest re-asking at the correct site. If you're certain that: The question is off-topic here; and You know a site where the question would be on-topic Then cast a flag for moderators. If you're in any doubt, ...

I'll just go though point by point and give my thoughts: [From Math.SE]: "Seeking personal advice. Questions about choosing a course, academic program, career path, etc. are off-topic. Such questions should be directed to those employed by the institution in question, or other qualified individuals who know your specific circumstances." These are already ...

Not counting advanced options, there are three ways to show code in your questions and answers. Number 1: For short pieces which don't need to be on their own line, such as when talking about a command in text, you can surround the text with backticks, `. Number 2: To make a block of code display in its own box, you can indent everything by four spaces. ...
