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
