I've just migrated 26 questions from The Game of Go. That site (still in private beta) will be shutting down soon. However, there were some excellent questions asked there, and since Go is also on-topic here, it seemed a shame to lose them.

One thing you might notice are the board diagrams... There's a proper renderer for these on the way, but until then they'll continue to be displayed as text.

    Some of the answers contain links to other questions. Those links should be updated to point at the questions here, rather than on the Go site.

  • Good point, @bwarner - I've updated several of them, will check again later.

    Why not "migrate" ALL (or nearly all) of them. (OK, if it's 26 questions out of 28 or 29, that's "nearly all.") Or are you doing it, say, 13 at a time?

    @Tom There was indeed a discussion about this. Since there were close to 100 questions on GoSE, general consensus was to move only the most interesting. This also avoids flooding this site :)

Thanks Shog for your work. The questions seemed to have been moved fine, and the board excellent renderer is working too!

I'll have a look at the question in the next few days and try to make sure they fit properly on BGSE (caption, tags, ...)

  • If there's anything else we can do to help with the integration, don't hesitate to ping me (here or via email). BTW: You should've gotten an email from someone on the Community team on a related topic; don't know if you've had a chance to look it over yet, but please do when you get time.
