We all love Network Engineering Stack Exchange, but there is a whole world of people out there who need answers to their questions and don't even know that this site exists. When they arrive from Google, what will their first impression be? Let's try to look at this site through the eyes of someone who's never seen it before, and see how we stack up against the rest of the 'Net.

The Site Self-Evaluation review queue is open and populated with 10 questions that were asked and answered in the last quarter. Run a few Google searches to see how easy they are to find and compare the answers we have with the information available on other sites.

Rating the questions is only a part of the puzzle, though. Do you see a pattern of questions that should have been closed but are not? Questions or answers that could use an edit? Anything that's going really well? Post an answer below to share your thoughts and discuss these questions and the site's health with your fellow users!

  • So all I have gathered from the above is that 6 out of the 10 questions were sub-standard? That's it. – jwbensley Aug 26 '14 at 15:55
  • What I gathered is that 4 out of 10 are better than can be found elsewhere. 3 of 10 are about what you can find elsewhere. The remaining 3 of 10 are not as good as what you can find elsewhere. 10 of 10 are worth revisiting by the community to see if we can improve them. Two of them I didn't really have time to address when they were posted, so I took the opportunity now to add my answers...which hopefully will improve them to some degree and make the community better and stronger. – YLearn Sep 1 '14 at 17:02
