A few months ago or so, some people might remember that I mentioned doing a quality review for this site for seeing how Board & Card Games is doing as a site. Well, it's been a few months since then, and we've gone through a more recent review. And I thought I'd like to see what the community thinks of their site, so I'm going to be snagging from my previous template that itself was stolen from Aarthi. Again, with a twist, if even still the same twist.
Meta sites often see people discussing specific questions that have been closed to determine whether or not they can (or should) be reopened, but it's rare that anyone looks at questions that are open and answered. Are they better than what the Internet has to offer? Are we making the Internet better?
Here's a rough guide:
- Below, you'll find ten questions randomly selected from your site over the past 60 days.
- For each question, search the internet for the question as if you were the asker!
- If our answer(s) is good (complete, well-written, answers the question, useful, found in search results, etc) then vote it up!
- If our answer(s) is bad (incomplete, poorly-written, off-topic, incorrect, unfindable, worthless, etc) then vote it down!
- I've included my own commentary from my run of the review. These are in spoiler blocks. It's up to you whether you look at them post-fact just to see how your perspective compares, versus letting my views shift your opinion of the question.
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.
Remember that our goal is to make the internet a better place. If you find yourself unable to decide how to vote, ask yourself: does this question and/or answer make the internet better? How you answer that question should determine your vote.
Talk to your fellow community members about how your site is doing and what you all can improve. Above all else, remember: this is a team effort!
Please note: this evaluation will close on April 24th, 2012! Get your responses and votes in by then!
