This is a feature-request post.
Upvoting it means you agree with the proposal.
Downvoting it means you disagree with the proposal.
You can answer or comment if you want, but you don't need to.
Change the site description to make it more inclusive, as proposed in this answer and its comments. The specific proposed translations to Spanish and English are included below.
The site's description as found in the Help > Asking > On-topic section, currently reads like this:
- The Spanish Language Stack Exchange is for linguists, etymologists, and (serious) Spanish-language enthusiasts. (English)
- Spanish Language Stack Exchange es para lingüistas, etimologistas y entusiastas (serios) del idioma español. (Spanish)
This seems a bit too elitist, compared to the description featured in the banner shown to unregistered users, which is currently:
- Spanish Language Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for students, teachers, and linguists (...).
After all this years, it's pretty clear that this site is not only for linguists, etymologists and "serious" enthusiasts. Students and teachers are welcome too.
So I propose for both descriptions to be changed to this:
The Spanish Language Stack Exchange is for linguists, teachers, students and Spanish language enthusiasts in general. (English)
Spanish Language Stack Exchange es para lingüistas, docentes, estudiantes y entusiastas en general del idioma español. (Spanish)
Cambiar y unificar la descripción del sitio en las distintas secciones, usando el texto arriba propuesto, para hacerla más inclusiva y acorde a los usuarios reales que tenemos.
The above proposal has been discussed already on Meta and/or chat, but apparently a consensus has not been reached, because of low participation I guess.
That being the case, I'm opening an official feature-request post, so you can just upvote or downvote the proposal. Maybe we can get more users to participate this way.
