Never seen this kind of question before. If I had to bet, it'd get closed asap.

What says the community?

  • Apparently not much... – Ripped Off Feb 14 '11 at 15:58
  • I would caution against comments that could be interpreted as an "attack" on the community. You have to keep in mind that the meta sites get far less traffic and PSE is a smaller community than SO. Expecting an answer within 40mins is not reasonable. – Pemdas Feb 14 '11 at 16:13

    @Pem lol I'm trying to protect PSE, not defame it. – Ripped Off Feb 14 '11 at 16:21
  • I understand that...I just wanted to point out that the way you delivered that comment may or may not be interpreted the way you indented it. – Pemdas Feb 14 '11 at 16:39

Pemdas got it. I'm not seeing a constructive point to that question. It seems like it falls firmly in the "getting to know you" category, which is off-topic on P.SE.

I'm usually in the mod chat room even if I don't have it explicitly opened in a browser, so feel free to @-address me in there if there are questions like this that you want answered quickly. I may not always respond right away, but the notification popping up in my SE inbox is better than relying on me checking P.SE meta at the right time. (The same probably goes for the other mods, too, but I can't speak for them.)

    Thanks, I'll try to remember that. I'm trying to reduce the number of posts I migrate from StackOverflow that end up getting closed at PSE. – Ripped Off Feb 14 '11 at 16:20
  • @Will Thanks. I appreciate that. :) – Adam Lear Feb 14 '11 at 16:21

    @Will - Many thanks for your efforts. It is greatly appreciated! – Walter Feb 14 '11 at 17:40

It would probably get closed because it is basically a survey and not constructive. You could argue that the result might be used in some constructive fashion, but answers themselves are too localized and not very useful.
