OK so the title is obviously way too serious, but hear me out.
I've joined Phil.SE about 2 years ago, and had a whole lot of fun learning philosophy through it, with some very well-educated and fun to talk to people. Even though, from the very beginning I saw that many of the questions being asked on the site are either non-philosophical, way too broad, very uneducated or those pesky "logical fallacies".
At first I've really been able to sort those questions out, and enjoy the good questions and discussions I've had here. But after a while it seemed like the one-question-user that asks "What is God" or "What is electricity" trend had increased significantly, to the point where now I have to actively search, quite excruciatingly, for decent questions. Granted, I haven't been very active this past year, so I can't complain too much; but I think I'm voicing the thoughts of many of us.
I know for a fact that I'm not the only one that feels that way (is Philosophy SE being trolled?), and I know that the site never had a good activity rating, and it is quite obvious that SE isn't the best fit for philosophy questions, to the point where one of our well-known moderators just quit exactly for that reason.
But I've never seen an actual discussion over the future of this site (at least not since its Beta days). And I think that it might be as good as time as ever to open such discussion. Some key points I have in mind:
Is there a future for philosophy in the SE format?
Can we utilize the SE format any different than we have so far?
Is the "moderator" feature well-utilized for our site?
Do we want/can we afford to demand higher-quality questions? (the size/quality issue)
I really hope that you guys are interested in opening such discussion as much as I am. Please comment/answer with your thoughts, I'd love to hear what our mods think.
If any of you think that we should indeed make this discussion (imo preferably in a chat room, but we can obviously decide later), please let us all know by up-voting this question.
I would really hate seeing this site continuing the way that it is currently, because again as Keelan said long before he quit - this site seem to stagnate.
