> Codidact has been divided into 2 categories (PowerUsers/SoftwareDevelopment) No, it hasn't. It is a network of 17 communities plus the global Meta site - **just like how** Stack **Exchange** [is](https://stackexchange.com/sites?view=list) a network of (assuming I got my dev console magic right) 181 communities plus its global Meta. The [scope of the Software Development site](https://software.codidact.com/help/faq) is in fact broader than on Stack Overflow; in particular, we accept questions about design and architecture that the Stack Exchange network would want to move aside to other sites programmers.stackexchange.com, langdev.stackexchange.com etc. instead. But we do have a separate Power Users site because *questions about how to use your computer more effectively are fundamentally not the same kind of thing as questions about how to write code*. It requires a fundamentally different kind of expertise. > Everything looks desolate. The first question I clicked on was 8 years old and had 1 answer... for the love of god import some questions/answers from StackExchange First off: **we tried that already**, in a few other communities (Writing, Outdoors and Scientific Speculation). It turned out not to work very well for community building. Second: Codidact has only existed since 2019. The question you clicked on **was** an imported question. Third: Saying "the site sucks because nobody is using it" is **not helpful**. Of course we would love to grow our communities, which is why there is a copied-and-pasted "How can we grow this community?" question on each per-site meta [e.g. on Software](https://software.codidact.com/posts/285035). If you have constructive ideas, please feel free to contribute there (after reading what everyone else has already proposed). But "fake it until you make it" is not viable. > I saw a question on cabbages needing oxygen to live. Was it perhaps [this one](https://scientific-speculation.codidact.com/posts/287274), in the Scientific Speculation community, where it is perfectly on topic? If you don't like questions about biology then you don't have to use the community that is about science. If you think the question is too easy then *that is simply not relevant*, at least as long as the corresponding community doesn't think it's relevant. Q&A sites are more useful when they can answer easy questions as well as hard ones. There are a lot more people out there asking easy questions than hard ones, after all. > On the same point I also saw some questions that you would have to be an expert on the matter to answer. There's no in between either it's 5th grade basic questions, or rocket science that only a small group of people can interact with. I disagree; I think the questions seen across Codidact cover a wide spectrum of difficulty levels. But if you think on-topic questions at a particular level are missing, and you don't feel like answering anything because of that, and you want to help make one or more of our sites better... then why not... **ask some of those questions**?
