This past year the company has committed to "Community growth" as one of the priority points on the to-do list. I was wondering if that includes (re)taking ownership of the subreddits named after the community and its biggest site. For now there is almost no activity on either subreddit.
They could be used to post links to SO.Blog post articles and featured posts on all meta sites, so that users with Reddit accounts could have lengthy threaded conversations in the comments over there. As I don't see threaded comments coming to the SE/SO site engine anytime soon, this might be a great alternative to… well, there is nothing of that sort available to users here at the moment in terms of free long form discussions on distinct topics which won't intermix or disappear upwards into chat transcript.
