Proposal: Darknet

share
up vote 17 down vote accepted

The Deep Web site was in private beta for 3 weeks and it has been closed already without progressing to the public beta stage.

The Darknet proposal is actually the outcome of what people learned from that proposal and why it failed.

So this proposal is actually the follow up of The Deep Web, since the deep web term is too ambiguous and confusing, because the deep web is basically:

any part of World Wide Web whose contents are not indexed by standard search engines for any reasonwiki

which basically covers very common uses such as web mail, online banking, paid services, unlinked content, private web pages, images and videos (because textual content encoded in multimedia is not indexed by the traditional web search engines) and so on. So basically the scope of the deep web is too broad and doesn't make any sense in terms of the specific scope.

Therefore this proposal is called the darknet, since it relates to:

an overlay network that can only be accessed with specific software, configurations, or authorizationwiki

Won't this site be also victim of a massive number of Tor question? – Yuriko Jun 10 '16 at 16:08
    
When people will agree on meta that it is off-topic, then people will vote to close as off-topic. Later on at some point we can agree with mods to migrate such questions to Tor.SE. I've also clarified that in the proposal description, so people know what they're joining and what is the expectation. – kenorb Jun 10 '16 at 16:10

@Yuriko there's a separate site for Tor, so related question might be migrated. – Zoltán Schmidt Jul 8 '16 at 11:44
