To suggest that Chinese SE questions be written solely in English

It's wrong to assume that Chinese SE is new compared with Japanese SE. The first question of Japanese SE was asked on May 31, 2011 and that of Chinese SE was on Dec. 13, 2011. Only about six-month ...

Are questions on specific topolects on topic?

I honestly don't see why not. There are already such questions on the site, so go ahead. Make sure you tag your question with the relevant tag such as hakka or cantonese.

How do you feel about a "philosophy" tag?

As far as the Stack Exchange framework is concerned, you can use just about anything for a tag, and philosophy sounds like a reasonable subject area. However, the question volume for the classical-...
