There are certain differences between the principles and practice of academic branches; among these Philosophy stands markedly apart. For one, Philosophy is self referential like no other discipline. Naturally some of these peculiarities carries over to Philosophy SE. For instance the potential user base is probably the largest, drawing from curios adolescents to professional philosophers. While the highly qualified users can easily be the smallest number. For example:
Sciences work within narrow domain paradigms, i.e. Biology is only interested in living things, Psychology with human behavior etc. additionally within a branch of inquiry there is a 'culture' made up of conventions and language peculiar to that discipline. This domain specific culture is reflected on the corresponding SE site. However Philosophy has the widest domain of inquiry, as a result one peculiarity of Philosophy is that it's culture is eclectic. That means, for Philosophy SE some policy decisions can be unique. Thus, together with demographics, a list of these peculiarities could be useful
Has anybody done something to that effect?
