Is it possible to create a site for Windows Phone 7, iPhone, Ovi, like Android has (http://android.stackexchange.com) and a general site for mobiles?


A generic Electronic Gadgets site was tried, but didn't get enough activity to make it viable.

Android questions can, as you said, be asked on Android.SE. Similarly, iPhone questions can be asked on Apple.SE.

  • To elaborate on this answer a bit, yes it is possible to create a site through our process described in area51.stackexchange.com/faq. But, as @Dori said, a gadget site has been tried and failed. Someone is welcome to try again someday, but they should have strong reason to believe they can garner significantly more support for such a site than the first time around. Dec 18 '10 at 2:04
  • I get your answer for the last part of my question. What about the first part? ("Is it possible to create a site for Windows Phone 7, iphone, ovi like the android has (android.stackexchange.com)") Dec 22 '10 at 21:18
  • @Randall - Are you asking about individual sites for each? If so, your best bet for WP7 is to follow the Windows Phone proposal. There's no currently proposed Nokia site, but you can look at the FAQ @Robert pointed to if you think there would be sufficient interest. And as I wrote initially, iPhone questions are always welcome at Apple.SE.

There are three related Area 51 proposals that would apply:

I suggest you sign up and promote any or all of them to help get them off the ground.
