I'm an elected moderator on Mi Yodeya and The Workplace, and a pro-tempore mod on Writers and Worldbuilding. Professionally, I'm a technical writer who works with (and often helps design) programming interfaces. I'd love to see more tech-writing questions on Writers.SE.

I joined Stack Exchange so I could commit to the proposal for Mi Yodeya. I ask lots of questions to learn from the many knowledgeable Yodeyans. My answers tend to be mostly to practical "Jewish life" questions.

Please check out Mi Yodeya's publications with Q&A drawn from our site -- a haggadah supplement for Pesach, a Purim collection, and eight nights of Q&A for Chanukah.

Stack Exchange has many great sites. However, I recommend strongly that Jews avoid Biblical Hermeneutics or, at the very least, consult your rabbi first.

Friendly amendment: Title is Daedalus' Workshop (as you proposed); subtitle is "blog of the Worldbuilding Stack Exchange community".

comment Solicitation for blog posts
Let's not start another list of ideas for topics; we have several of those already, many of which I tried to pull together here. Am I correct that you meant this post to be more for specific people signing up to write specific things?

Are you able to modify the software you're using, or do you need a "people-only" solution (people, process, etc, but not technical)?

It's Writers, not Proofreaders. That's the best I can come up with, anyway. That, and insufficient caffeine at the time. :-)

You should be able to do it all yourself, unless your answer was accepted. Copy to the open question, edit as needed, delete from the closed question.

@bilbo_pingouin oh, thanks -- I hadn't noticed the revision history. That makes more sense now.

I'm not sure this is a duplicate of the sandbox question. Using the sandbox provides an answer to this question, but we evaluate duplicates at the question, not at the answer. Either way, I'm glad you found the sandbox helpful, and please do feel free to ask about specific questions (or answers) on meta. That's why we have those tags.

comment Medium Blog - Best of Worldbuilding
I like the idea of using the blog to highlight specific questions (or groups of questions). Different people will have different favorites, so maybe instead of "the" badges, each person who makes such posts should use his own? I mean, I can totally see HDE awarding a "hardest science" badge and ArtOfCode awarding a "coolest world idea" badge and somebody else awarding a "best use of zombies" badge and so on. Let's collect ideas here with the thought that anybody might use any of them.

Did you delete another comment replying to me? I just added an answer on the basis of a comment I thought I saw here.

comment Why shouldn't I delete wrong answers?
Are you asking only about the community deleting answers, or also about the authors deleting them?
