Hopefully they will come over to SE too! (Please, please!)
In my experience, Stack Exchange is a MUCH more pleasant experience for Q&A. Forums are great for discussion
. Stack Exchange is great for Q&A. Community moderation, reputation building, voting, the concept of accepted
answers - it all leads to a fantastic experience. The best parts though are A) When you land on SE because you were looking for an answer in Google, it is very easy to find the answer, you don't have to dig through the potentially long context of a forum topic. B) All of the content on SE is public domain. They don't try to claim rights to any of the user submitted content.
My only peeve with the Raspberry Pi SE site right now is that it is named "Raspberry Pi". No offense
I just think it would be better if it were like the e-linux wiki and covered all devices like the Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, PandaBoard, etc, since there is so much overlap.
Can't wait to see this site take off!
