comment Are questions about specific languages on topic?
The best way to find out is to ask some "language-specific" sample questions during the definition phase, and see what happens to them. Nobody knows specifically what is on topic yet--that's what the Definition phase is for.

Apparently the Swiss are better at manufacturing than they are at English grammar.

comment What is a *professional* pickup artist?
@Carpetsmoker: I know what a pickup artist is. That wasn't my question. My question was who gets paid to do that.

comment What is a *professional* pickup artist?
Seems to me those people are professional speakers/motivators, who talk about pickup artistry (much like how Robert Kiyosaki makes money talking about buying and selling real estate, rather than by buying and selling real estate). But maybe I'm being pedantic.

Would something like "Proposed Q&A site for students, teachers, and anyone involved in the process of learning or teaching a new spoken or written language." be more clear?

I'm all in favor of clear descriptions. I'm just not sure what ambiguity you're getting at. Can you clarify your concern?

ELL is about learning English. There is no site, to my knowledge, that is about the process of language learning, in general.

comment Did Joel Spolsky just renounce “merging season”?
IMHO, SO is too large. Splintering is necessary. If I don't get an answer within 30 minutes, it will never get an answer. Even with a bounty. There's just too much noise, even with filtering, to get good answers to my questions. It's only real use, as a programmer, is when looking up historical answers.

comment A site for link only answers?
So you want to use a Q&A web site as an index to download website mirrors? That doesn't really make a lot of sense... but whatever. If you can get enough sample questions and people to commit to your proposal, I'll buy you a beer.

If the web site is down, it's presumably a temporary problem, making the questions all "Too Localized" and the answers all "Not an Answer"s... lovely.
