  • **Note:** Please see also [How should we approach our (non-developer) software community proposals?](https://meta.codidact.com/posts/280574). We are trying to work out how this proposal interacts with others. (It sounds like Linux is probably different and that won't affect this in the end, but I want to make sure folks are aware.)
  • Right now we don't have a good way of identifying people who would help build a new community, so let's do this: if you are interested in helping to build this site, please leave a comment describing your level of interest (casual visitor, enthusiast, expert in this topic within the site's scope, something else?), or edit the post directly. I'll edit comments into the post later.
  • - I would use it (casual visitor). — ‭[8063‭](https://meta.codidact.com/users/8063)
  • - Enthusiast here! — [‭r~~‭](https://meta.codidact.com/users/53410)
  • - I would have occasional user-level questions, and probably some questions for which the answers involve `sudo`. - Monica Cellio
  • - I think I would be a casual visitor with occasional questions. — [‭mbomb007‭](https://meta.codidact.com/users/53016)
  • - I would likely be a regular visitor and consider myself to be a competent user, more likely to answer than ask questions. — [Canina](https://meta.codidact.com/users/8049)
  • - I'd be an asker — [‭ShowMeBillyJo](https://meta.codidact.com/users/53303)
  • - I'd be a casual participant who would ask/answer on occasion (for comparison, you can [see my account on Unix & Linux SE](https://unix.stackexchange.com/users/112949/dan) which shows I've posted 5 questions and 3 answers and voted 72 times over the past ~5.5 years) &mdash; [laserkittens (Dan)](https://meta.codidact.com/users/53441)
  • - I'd be a casual visitor for the most part, I'd likely mostly just read, occasionally answer. I've got knowledge in some parts of the Linux kernel and how to configure a system, but I am not much of a script writer in the usual Linux sense (no Perl, only basic shell scripts), I'm fluent in Python though and I usually use that for automation, though at that point it's probably more a software question than a Linux question. — ‭[jrh](https://meta.codidact.com/users/53289)‭
  • - I’ve been using Linux as my primary OS for over two years, so I might be able to help with answering some questions, but I’d definitely lurk around and read. — [ploni‭](https://meta.codidact.com/users/53188)
  • - enthusiast and somewhat experienced AU answerer here, I would love to help building up this community! — [dessert‭](https://meta.codidact.com/users/53642)
  • - I'd probably be a casual visitor/poster. — [celtschk‭](https://meta.codidact.com/users/8056)
  • - I'd be a casual poster. I've been using Linux and MacOS for a while. — [Razetime](https://meta.codidact.com/users/53310)
  • - Another enthusiast here — [fedorqui](https://meta.codidact.com/users/8103)
  • - Casual user, probably questions about WSL. — [Sigma‭](https://meta.codidact.com/users/8263)
  • - Oh, If WSL is on topic for this site then I'd probably use it as well (casual) — [Moshi‭](https://meta.codidact.com/users/53196)
  • - I'd be a casual user — [FoggyFinder‭](https://meta.codidact.com/users/53207)
  • - I'd be a casual user as well — [Ullallulloo‭](https://meta.codidact.com/users/53703)
  • *Re "If WSL is on topic" -- could y'all work out at least a high-level scope for this community? Linux specifically or any Unix or any Unix-like system? WSL? What else? (I don't know enough to ask the right questions.)*
