Ask.clojure.org

I was not aware of it, but it looks like there is an “official” Clojure QA site/forum at https://ask.clojure.org/ - it looks like it’s basically empty now. Thoughts?

Here is the official announcement: https://clojure.org/news/2019/07/25/clojure-forum

I see over 1,500 questions on the site – doesn’t look “empty” to me @l3nz

It’s new. Just announced.

Yesterday morning there were 1499 cases imported from Jira and one question, so it was not that packed :slight_smile:

Ah, you didn’t consider the JIRA “questions” as valid content? :slight_smile:

It will be interesting to see what kind of “questions” will end up go there and how this forum changes.
What do you think it’s a good content for clojureverse.org that shouldn’t end up in ask.clojure.org and vice versa?

I’d say ask is for questions about Clojure itself or its Contrib libraries where you’re looking for a specific answer (or requesting an enhancement or reporting a bug), and clojureverse is for more general discussions – or questions outside of Clojure/Contrib.

In reality, I suspect people will ask broader questions on ask as well, but I don’t know whether they’ll get good answers there.
