I feel like this site and Health share the same fate: there are core users who put so much effort to change it, but:
- the traffic is just not enough
- good answers are not upvoted enough, bad answers are not downvoted enough
This site seems to has a better performance, and does improve over time as Jeromy points out
, but when a mod loses their interesting, it is a big alarm.
I think this site and Health have the same characteristic: people come here for personal questions, but only experts can have enough knowledge to answer and vote. Does this nature fits Stack Exchange modal?
Here are a couplet that I really like:
Mathematics is the art of giving the same name to different things
Poetry is the art of giving different names to the same thing
Are Psychology and Health just different names of the same thing? If we can make sure the dying of the both sites are just coincident, not really because of the nature of the fields, then I think there can be a hope. Again, my main point is not whether this model fits us (this topic has been brought out so many times in both sites, and basically an in any sites), but to question whether there is a fundamental relationship between the two sites, as I have never seen anyone bring the similarities up to the table besides of not having enough traffic.
