I was just writing a tag wiki for the outdoor-activities tag. This led me thinking about the question:
How should we distribute questions between Travel.SE and The Great Outdoors (beta)?
Not all Outdoor-questions are Travel-related (e.g. questions on equipment are not), but most of our questions tagged outdoor-activities would fit very well on The Great Outdoors. There are currently twelve such questions, of which half were asked before The Great Outdoors was launched 24 January 2012.
Should we remain accepting such questions and have an overlap with Outdoors.SE, or should we narrow down what is on-topic and specifically point outdoor-questions to The Great Outdoors? If the latter, is there still a life for outdoor-activities, and what would its content be? And what should we do with the questions already here, such as:
- Kayak options in Patagonia
- Lake ice skating in Southern Sweden
- Recommendations for snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef
I'm not sure what the Stack Exchange point of view is of questions being on-topic on multiple sites (e.g. Unix&Linux, SuperUser and AskUbuntu), but my personal opinion is that it's better if questions are on-topic in one place, because this creates a more tight community and makes it easier to find questions.
