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 difference. I wonder why you think all questions should be asked in English. How about those who can't speak English more fluently than Chinese? Let's say a ...

For the general case... there are two distinct cases of posts containing politics. Good: When the politics is related to the question, and helps us understand Chinese. In these cases, it should ideally be presented in a matter-of-fact, detached tone, and kept to the minimum necessary. We're not trying to win an argument, nor endorsing certain viewpoints; ...

I think we should allow both questions and answers in both English and Chinese. I know I wasn't here when the site was proposed so I'm not sure what the original idea was. But I was active on the early Spanish site and they wanted to cater both to Spanish learners via English and Spanish speakers who wanted to learn more about their language, much like on ...

I was actually going to post a similar question to yours a few weeks ago, particularly in response to this question. However, after doing some research, I think questions about swearing is not necessarily inappropriate. This, for instance, seems to be a valid question. As such, I believe that as long as the intention to asking the question is clearly ...

From the FAQ: What makes something offensive and when should I flag it? Even if a post is a bad post for some reason or another, it is probably not offensive. The Offensive flag is meant to be used only in extreme cases, like hate speech, or abuse. For example, if a user posts obscene images to the site, that should be flagged as offensive. But if someone ...

Thank you for this write-up. I have only one remark about Stage 1, Point 4: Discuss lowering closure to 3 votes (from 5 votes) I suggest we move this to Stage 2, as, in my view, it depends on how hard it is to form a consensus about what's on/off-topic. If there is loose consensus, lowering the close vote threshold might be construed as contrary to self-...

Meta has a stricter rule of being in English, but the main sites can have both. And I think they should have both. If you personally don't like your answer in Chinese to be off-limits for non-Chinese speakers, then feel free to add a small translation below it. That would be very nice of you. However this doesn't mean that everybody should be forced to use ...

We can/should only consider migration when: the question is off-topic or received poorly here, AND the question would be welcome at another site, AND the question is not older than 60 days (otherwise migration is impossible). While a question may be simultaneously on-topic at multiple sites (e.g. Marvel movies at both Movies.SE and SciFi.SE), there are ...

No human sees them before posting. I believe you're looking at the automated system that checks questions prior to answering: "Draft your question" followed by "Review your question". It points out errors such as: "Title is missing." "Please enter at least one tag; see a list of popular tags." I don't think the ...

To help maintain quality (and reduce user time spent on curation), Stack Exchange has both a question ban and an answer ban. In this case, I think you've hit the question ban. (Your questions are listed here.) This is an automatic process (i.e., there's no human directly involved), and only Stack Exchange staff knows the precise algorithm. Wouldn't it be ...

I was thinking we could use the EL&U policy: No swearing in titles (titles can be shared in many ways and the local formatting might not properly show the entire title). Swearing is allowed in body questions as long as the question is legit. Using the example in Hellion's answer: The primary restriction is that you should post in a polite, civil ...

Further to Don's answer above I also want to remind people of our strict rules around translations, we don't accept questions which are "How do you say ##### in Chinese". If it is going to have some 'offensive' language make sure there is a need to ask other than just wanting to know or just asking to be shocking/funny. We want to answer high quality ...
