Ironic, don't you think, that Programmers would provide a model graphic for GD? :)
We do have to avoid the boat issue, and I agree that the SOPA/PIPA question doesn't cut the mustard in its current form. OTOH, I've felt for a while that the general SO model, from which SE is derived, has important limitations from the point of view of the design field. This is a good case in point. There are questions that might apply to "All Designers," but their number is slight in comparison to questions that apply to "All designers who use [application]" or "All designers working with [medium]." (I have a sense that the fact that design has been around for >40,000 years and programming for <100 may have something to do with it. Our tools are new and rapidly evolving. The fundamental disciplines not so much.)
This question really speaks to the same underlying issue, and I'd love to see more feedback on it (as opposed to votes).
A few weeks ago, I set up a gallery chat room to which a few folks have write access, specifically to address some of these points in semi-real-time. Since then I've been inundated with work, so I've not been able to do anything with it as yet. I still want to set up a chat session with you, Pearsonartphoto and our high-contribution members so we can figure out how to steer this ship into more productive waters. We have some fantastic expertise among several relative newcomers. I'd like to make the site attractive (== useful) for them and others. We'll grow to the degree we're useful.
