Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Is there a Stack Exchange site for philosophy in French? If not, what about adding one? In a broader scope, is there a plan to add site in each language on each topic of Stack Overflow?

New sites are proposed and discussed on Area 51; this probably belongs at Area 51 Discussion (and, of course, just search Area 51 for your site). – michaelb958 Jul 9 '13 at 13:10
Please don't use the bug tag for something that is clearly not a bug report. – Oded Jul 9 '13 at 13:11
You have French Language & Usage and you have Philosophy, not one site for both. – Shadow Wizard Jul 9 '13 at 13:11
My question would not be accepted until I added the bug flag, I was asked to do so by a pop up. – psychoslave Jul 9 '13 at 13:56
@psychoslave No, you were asked to add one of the tags [discussion] [feature-request] [bug] or [support]. Any one of those would have worked. – Bart Jul 9 '13 at 14:07
philosophy.SE barely has a large enough audience in English to sustain itself (2.2 questions per day.) I suspect the audience in French would be even smaller. – Wooble Jul 9 '13 at 14:37
@Bart Sorry I misunderstund then. I'll be more careful next time, thank for driving my attention on this point. – psychoslave Jul 10 '13 at 13:37

Current list of Stack Exchange sites

The process for getting a new Stack Exchange site created is detailed at Area 51. By using this process it can be illustrated that there is a need for a site covering a particular topic and that it will get enough use and traffic to justify its existence.

No, there's not a plan to add sites for every topic in every language. There just wouldn't be enough use.

And these are not forums.

These questions focus on StackOverFlow, but I feel they're applicable in this case as well. Unless there is something significant to be gained from have a topic in a specific language (perhaps a French version of the English Language and Usage), you're just dividing up your audience and catering to a small portion of them.

In this case, dividing your audience would mean that no French speaker who don't speak English have interest in philosophy. I gonna look at Area51, thank for all your answers. – psychoslave Jul 9 '13 at 13:59
