In the chat some of us discussed an approach to attract new users for CogSci. @Honi suggested the following:
If you want multiple fields to use the CogSci site, you still need a critical mass from each field, otherwise you won't get quality answers to those quality questions.
In short, I would say the plan should be 1) decide what subfield you want to start with (probably one that one of the moderators here is in). 2) convince at least 50 people that it is worth their while to ask and answer questions here. 3) have them do it for a month. 4) move onto another subfield. In other words, follow the requirements of Area51, but limit yourselves to counting a user commitment as a success if they are a verifiable subject matter expert.
As no one has shot down this idea and people were already discussing which field should be first, I though it might be an idea to formalize this idea in a question. So, which subfields should we target and in what order?
I hope this question may activate us to start re-vamping the site (http://chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/message/36893661#36893661)
