Are we creating too many the different stackexchange sites?
i read other questions regarding this but i need more clarification so thats why i started new thread
I am feeling that having too many SE sites wasting more time , at least for me:
I asked question of linux , shell in SO and they migrated to unix and linux In in So and i usually get answer in less than 5-8 mins but there i had to wait for 2 hrs. Although some will say that go to help desk if u need urgently buy till SO is my help desk and working more than good
Someone was saying that its better to diff sites so that persons which r more expert can concentrate only on that . But i think for that requirements , tags will work very fine. I agree cooking and Linux are differnet thing but programming , linux , windows all can come under one site. othwise soon you have to have as many sites as number of tags
usually every IT person knows windows , linux , computer. Although person may be working currently in one field , but he may be the master in other fields as well .He can answer many fields . so for that person , how many sites he will asnwer. We may be depriving some users from his technical knowledge . Although may not always true , but there r chances.
last things is If SO owner want to have diff sites thats ok , but if someone is asking in SO , it should stay there
Its like same like when i used to categorise ebooks in computer . intially it was 5 folders but then i used diff subjects and then i had 30 folders and the i never searched from there , rather i find internet good
