@Revenant_Evil The standard of questions seems to have been slipping for at least a couple of years. There was a time when I felt I could engage with people asking questions, but now there's little to draw me.

@snow That sounds about right. There are a few, very few that I feel like answering. I often pause to consider whether people care to hear the truth, or just affirmation

@DarkCygnus Hey. Freelancing.SE is at risk of shutting down due to no participation in mod elections. If it does, do you think The Workplace would allow or want a large migration of questions?
 
11:38 PM
:O
sorry to hear that
we do have a
tag
 
I know, we stole some of your audience and now we're possibly begging for another home... lol
 
However... well perhaps it's obvious or dumb question but don't you think it would be better to encourage election participation? Is it lack of candidates? Of votes?
 
Both. If the election next month doesn't get any participation, it will be 3 failed elections, even after drumming up interest. SE wants to shut the site down if we don't get people stepping up, and I unfortunately don't blame them
You're free to say no if your communitee doesn't want the content. JNat suggested I ask first
 
okey, I see
I'll check with the other mods, but yeah, after that we should check with the Community.
Personally I think that freelancing is quite related to TWP
as long as the migrated posts are good, don't migrate trash etc
 
Damn, so much for taking out the trash... :P
If TWP wants it, it'd likely be an all-or-nothing migration. There is lots of good content IMO, but I also haven't read every question yet
 
11:44 PM
If it were up to me alone I'd say no problem
Okey
Let me check with the guys, I've never heard/handled a site closing and all questions being migrated to another
Another site that comes to mind that is related to Freelancing is personal finances and money I guess
I bet some of your QAs are related to personal finances and money
 
Some, but very little
 
and those I suppose would be better fit there
 
It's scoped very much towards working for yourself, and the implications of dealing with clients or other freelancers
I gotta run, but feel free to ping me into discussions as needed. I want to help the members who rely/relied on us, but I'm the only mod there, for almost 8 years, and I'm slightly worn out
 
@CanadianLuke okey, I'll ping you soon
