We all love Magento Stack Exchange, but there is a whole world of people out there who need answers to their questions and don't even know that this site exists. When they arrive from Google, what will their first impression be? Let's try to look at this site through the eyes of someone who's never seen it before, and see how we stack up against the rest of the 'Net.

The Site Self-Evaluation review queue is open and populated with 10 questions that were asked and answered in the last quarter. Run a few Google searches to see how easy they are to find and compare the answers we have with the information available on other sites.

Rating the questions is only a part of the puzzle, though. Do you see a pattern of questions that should have been closed but are not? Questions or answers that could use an edit? Anything that's going really well? Post an answer below to share your thoughts and discuss these questions and the site's health with your fellow users!

In my opinion when a new user comes to StackExchange people should keep attention to his/her questions and should be treated nicely. Because some doesn't have enough knowledge in Magento and he/she may asking simple questions in a complex manner. So if we answer that user with expert answer he/she won't get the exact idea how to solve the question. Instead better to provide answers that can be understandable according to his/her knowledge level. The first impression always affects the users to come to site or avoid it.

  • I guess this means at least 3 more months of "school". Who do we have to bribe here to graduate?
