We all love Italian Language Stack Exchange, but there is a whole world of people out there who need answers to their questions and don't even know that this site exists. When they arrive from Google, what will their first impression be? Let's try to look at this site through the eyes of someone who's never seen it before, and see how we stack up against the rest of the 'Net.

The Site Self-Evaluation review queue is open and populated with 10 questions that were asked and answered in the last quarter. Run a few Google searches to see how easy they are to find and compare the answers we have with the information available on other sites.

Rating the questions is only a part of the puzzle, though. Do you see a pattern of questions that should have been closed but are not? Questions or answers that could use an edit? Anything that's going really well? Post an answer below to share your thoughts and discuss these questions and the site's health with your fellow users!

Here are my thoughts:

  • This site is great, but it still cannot stand against some other sites about Italian language. Particularly, for Italian native speakers, there are sites like the one of Accademia della Crusca that can provide more detailed and accurated answer. Plus, doing researches, results from Treccani's and other online vocabularies show first (again, talking for native speakers).

  • There are not many active users, but ones who post regularly and answer to most of the question bring a high quality level to the site; plus, some questions lead to the creation of material that otherwise would be quite hard to find by simple search.

  • Tags can be improved (for example, I still don't get the point of having meaning and word-meaning, useb both for same contexts).

  • Users are great here, I've read some great discussions and I'm still learning new facts about my native language, which is great!
