Q&A How does Codidact avoid repeating Stack Exchange's mistakes?

Q&A How can Codidact be independent from Stack Exchange, when you have same moderators?

This is a fair question. I haven't discussed this answer with Mithical, but I'll give you my perspective. The Codidact project aims to do better (much better!) than Stack Exchange in some importa...

Q&A How does voting on site proposals work?
