I have seen a lot of home related questions getting rejected according to the charter for this group, and that's OK.

To meet the need for home/amateur questions, could the solution be to create a new SE group? Input is welcome.


What would be the benefit of yet another stack exchange group over asking on SuperUser, where people asking questions about home networking are being referred to now.

These questions are explicitly on topic there:

Super User is for computer enthusiasts and power users. If you have a question about …

- computer hardware,
- computer software, or
- personal and home computer networking

Adding more exchanges wouldn't make it any clearer in my opinion.

  • Good point! Thanks. And perhaps because the name "Super user" scares amateurs away? – MatsK Jan 15 '18 at 15:32
  • Maybe, but that's not something we can change here. – Teun Vink Jan 15 '18 at 15:35

    @MatsK, I'm not sure why "Super User" would scare away amateurs, where "professionally managed networks in a business environment" would not. – Ron Maupin Jan 16 '18 at 15:21

It appears that you have attempted this on Area51: Home network.

This subject is already well-covered by a live Stack Exchange site. We generally do not split off subjects simply to give them their own space.

I suppose you should have floated the idea on the Area51 Meta, first.
