Why isn't this in the main site? Is this not related to Jewish Life? –  Adam Simon Jul 29 '11 at 13:49

For one thing, it's a poll question without a correct answer. (I realize that there are plenty of examples of such on Mi Yodeya, but I'm not sure it's a good idea.) For another thing, my motive in posting it is entirely meta. –  Isaac Moses Jul 29 '11 at 13:51
    
Is the criteria for a question asked in the main section that it has a right answer? I understood the right answer to be the best answer as chosen by the community/asker. –  Adam Simon Jul 29 '11 at 14:31
    
It should be possible for there to be an answer that satisfies the question. See this section of the boilerplate FAQ and this meta-question. Note that this is one area of scope definition about which there's some disagreement within the community, but my personal preference is toward leaving polls out, so I personally avoid posting them on Mi Yodeya. –  Isaac Moses Jul 29 '11 at 14:41

Yesterday when I visited the site I was greeted by several highly inappropriate posts. Amongst them was one on "sugar daddies" (now happily removed completely), "How can I determine if someone is Shomer Negiah?" and "Is Baal the Same with God?" now closed but still viewable. We propose to advertise the site in Jewish newspapers or magazines. What would be the effect on a first-time visitor of seeing posts similar to the above? Would it be more appropriate to advertise after a system was introduced to act more quickly on difficult posts? –  Avrohom Yitzchok Dec 25 '11 at 10:42
    
Thank you for converting the above message from an answer to a comment. Please note the offending question has turned up again in meta in a slightly modified form. –  Avrohom Yitzchok Dec 25 '11 at 15:17

@AvrohomYitzchok there isn't much that CAN be done (short of asking a non-Jew (in a permissible way, of course) to police this site over Shabbos (how could he know what is appropriate or not is a different question) –  Shmuel Brin Dec 25 '11 at 18:52

@AvrohomYitzchok, 1) The Baal question could possibly be salvaged into a worthwhile queston, so I left it closed but not deleted. The Negiah question was appropriate. 2) The issue you bring up is an issue before we advertise as well. We're very much open to the public, and we get hundreds of people coming in through search every day. 3) Let's discuss the actual issue here: meta.judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/576/… –  Isaac Moses Dec 25 '11 at 19:16

@AvrohomYitzchok - Why did you find the Shomer Negiah question to be offensive? I happen to know that the asker meant the question in good faith (she's sitting across the table from me right now) and genuinely wants an answer. I assume you were one of the people who voted to close? –  neilfein Dec 25 '11 at 19:51

I enjoy reading Jewish Action, the OU's magazine. I find that every issue has multiple articles that I find very interesting.

In terms of relevance to Judaism.SE: JA devotes a great deal of space to understanding how Jews live in contemporary times. It has, in the past, had a department and occasionally an entire issue devoted to technology.

I'm actually not such a fan of this publication, as I find it poorly written and prone to errors. However, I do see it quite a lot in peoples' homes. –  HodofHod Dec 28 '11 at 4:04

I sure did. If you want to try contacting reporters there, that'd be great. If we could get written up in even one local Jewish weekly, it could help us grow the community. –  Isaac Moses Aug 1 '11 at 19:15
