One of the most important aspects of being a Stack Exchange site is quality. Yes, there are lots of metrics that one can use to "measure" a site, but we don't really care about those as much as we care about a site providing expert answers to good questions. To that end, we're introducing a self-evaluation to our sites!

This process is currently still in the midst of being put together, but you all are going to be a lucky early-adopter! Here's a rough guide:

  • Below, you'll find ten questions randomly selected from your site.
  • For each question, search the internet for the question as if you were the asker!
  • If our answer is good (complete, well-written, answers the question, found in search results, etc) then vote it up!
  • If our answer is bad (incomplete, poorly-written, off-topic, unfindable, etc) then vote it down!

Comment with anything you feel is worth noting, or to explain your voting choice. We have a rough guide to better/par/worse right here. If your result is par, make a choice to vote up or down based on your instincts!

Ultimately, remember that our goal is to make the internet a better place. If you find yourself torn between the options, or if you can't decide, ask yourself: does this question and/or answer make the internet better? That should help you decide.

This eval will close on March 21st! Get your answers in by then!

  • "stock" is a huge keyword in this question. If it's included, it's the first result, else we don't even place.
