Should one of my friend work for the lemonade bar next to me? for 1$ per 30 mins? How's that in your countries? (I am in ) - PS: he is like 15-17 years old.
 
8:24 AM
@VScode_fanboy tough to say - I don't really know how good/bad that wage is for Sri Lanka
 
8:55 AM
I would be interested in being a modorator of freelancing. I used to be extremely active there but deleted my account and lost all the rep (eg, this answer was mine: freelancing.stackexchange.com/a/1623/27218). I don't know if I'd be a candidate with no rep and no recent activity, unfortunately.
 
@motosubatsu I didn't asked that. I asked how is that wage/rate in your countries.
 
9:12 AM
@VScode_fanboy $2/hour is extremely low in a lot of countries, see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minimum_wage. it's 1/4 of the minimum wage in the USA.
That said, the cost of living is different in sri-lanka so it's difficult to compare.
 
9:36 AM
@VScode_fanboy apologies.. a bit tired this morning and missed that part! Yeah $2 an hour would be extremely low here in the UK - as in about 15% of our minimum wage
@stanri as it stands you wouldn't meet the minimum rep threshold to nominate, I don't know if it's possible or not but wonder if you could contact the CMs and ask if they could re-link your old account
 
9:55 AM
@stanri Ca you give a general comment like: oh that's very low or yeah that's a good offer
@motosubatsu I read your message first time like: a bit drunk this morning and pissed that part. Anyway, Thanks for the info.
 
@VScode_fanboy no I can't because I have no idea what a good offer in sri-lanka is
 
@stanri I said can you give a general comment if this was offered in US
 
I did already it's up there
 
@stanri OK so your comment is, "it is 25% of the minimum wage, so big no", Noted.
@motosubatsu Also he can go in routes like "forgot password" "recover my account"?
 
@VScode_fanboy if your friend is looking for a job that's going to make the USA minimum wage in sri-lanka, he may be looking for a long time.
 
10:03 AM
@stanri That is unrelated to the moderator elections?
 
@VScode_fanboy unfortunately not as the profile was deleted
 
@motosubatsu crap then.
 
10:28 AM
Yeah. I deleted a whole lot of accounts when I left a couple of years back. No way I'll get that back again.
It looks as though the high-rep users on the site don't really see the point of getting elected and are happy to use the basic moderation tools that high rep users have. There's a few moderators who could do, but don't want to. There's also a few guys who would if they have the rep - but there's not really enough activity there to gain enough rep to get up to 300 required. If there's no nominations this time around, the site will be retired.
There's not a huge amount of activity there, but what little there is does seem to be of an acceptable standard (i.e. it's not downvoted crap and off-topic junk).
I'm going to need 25 more upvotes in order to be eligible.

Q: About the " requests for off-site resources are off-topic across the whole Stack Exchange network"

yiyebo5913_koldpak.com I have a question about my The Workplace Stack Exchange post: Searching for proper Startup accelerator and Business Model Canvas template So I have some strange comment that suggesting proper other Forums for asking the off-topic is restricted and forbidden in SE network as you can see below: ...

@Snow Well, you could get @CanadianLuke or other established users to bounty your answers and get you up to the rep threshold I believe.
But it certainly feels like that site is on life-support. Given an 8 year history that's a really low high-rep and mid-rep user count.
@CanadianLuke For me, if it's all or nothing it'd be the latter. I scanned your 60 most recent questions and maybe 1/5 would be appropriate, depending on how they are phrased.
The majority deals with very specific freelance topics that just don't fit our scope and are unlikely to be of much interest to most users.
If it's about preserving content, doing a manual, gradual migration of your top 50-10 questions by votes/views would make more sense to me.
I don't think there's really any value in migrating well over a thousand questions that few people read when they were on the original site.
To avoid scope creep, we'd have to flag all of those with a historical lock and it's just a lot of effort without much to be gained I think.
In case of a beta shutdown, the questions are still archived I believe so they're not gone forever at least.
All that having been said, it may be more appropriate to post on our meta with this to gauge what the community thinks of it instead of the smaller slice of users that show up here. ;)

@Lilienthal Yeah, that would help. Need about 90 more now. By my way of thinking, if the users want it closed, they should say so. The reasons I’ve seen for people not stepping up don’t really indicate an overt wish for the entire site to fail.
