This is a re-post of the Machine Learning announcement (since it is still in private beta):
The Future of Machine Learning as a Stack Exchange Subject
The "Machine Learning" Stack Exchange started with a proposal in Area 51. A groups of experts propose a subject they felt were not found on the Stack Exchange Network. In the meantime, you have a Stats SE ("Cross Validated") who claim that "Machine Learning" is explicitly on topic for that site. Still, the supporters of the ML site wonders if all machine learning topics are a good fit for Cross Validated.
So what to do? We're not experts in this domain, so we let the proposal continue to see how it develops in actual practice. As it turns out, about 85-95% of the questions being asked are a perfect fit for Cross Validated. Even now, there is still widespread support to welcome the Machine Learning questions on their site.
Should Machine Learning SE be merged with CrossValidated?
So be it. Around mid week, we are going to migrate the questions from "Machine Learning" to the Cross Validated site. Some will be closed as off topic, but for the most part, they would love to see your Machine Language questions there. Make Machine Learning a strong subject on the Cross Validated site by asking your questions there.
For the smaller group of questions that do not fit on that site, support the Computer Science proposal. Bring your questions to these sites and make your presence known in the tags you care about. There is no purpose in continuing a sub-site like this when the subject is well-covered elsewhere.
A larger, more comprehensive site is a win-win to everyone.
