[meta] Questions & Concerns about how the new site operates
With the switch-over, I've gone looking to see what has changed and I'm finding some gaps in quite a few places. For example, the FAQ and About pages are generic pages from the new system, not specific to Ask.SQLSserverCentral. Also, there were a number of tools that opened up when I hit 10,000. They seem to have been removed (not a loss, I never used them) which leaves me wondering how much of the moderation gets opened up and when (apart from the abilities mentioned in the FAQ). Also, I suppose I already know the answer to this question, but, I don't see a place for discussion about the site, so I assume we still have to mix in meta questions with the real questions like I'm doing now. Is there a way to set preferences? I'd like to see the questions always by the newest first, but I keep popping back to the most active, which isn't that helpful. Is there an overarching explanation as to what's changed, how, what else needs to happen, etc. I ask because this is all completely new and totally unexpected. The medium to light users are going to be a bit gobsmaked as much as the heavier users. Some details & help & information would make the change go a bit more smoothly. Thanks.
The way I've cut the meta stuff was that meta stuff about OSQA itself and how it works should probably go into the OSQA meta forum... Meta discussion about this community I don't think is big enough to separate into a separate forum (personally). It's probably worth updating [this question] on meta OSQA to let the OSQA guys know about mod stuff that you miss - because to be honest I can't remember what I've missed - if someone had notified me, or **anyone** for that matter, about the move, I guess we would have had the chance to compare side by side and make a more comprehensive list of stuff... As for the overarchiing explanation - I think we're all waiting on that one :) :
I'm not 100% sure now, but I THINK that before the migration, a question did only get "bumped" when it had a new answer, not when it had a new comment. Can anyone more experienced confirm or deny that?
