A chat room has been created as an open forum for users with any mod privileges such as "vote to close". This chat room is intended for discussion and consensus building about what editorial direction users with mod privileges should take in light of the closing of the English Language Learners proposal:
- Stay the course (continue to allow many basic Q&A)?
- Stick more to the EL&U charter (discourage basic Q&A)?
- Support even more basic Q&A?
- Something else?
The ELL proposal would have created a place for basic English Q&A, freeing EL&U to be more of the expert-to-expert site that it was originally envisioned to be. The ELL proposal has now been closed as too much of an overlap with what EL&U currently offers, because EL&U allows many basic Q&A.
