We all love Windows Phone 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!


Many people still have a thought that windowsphone.stackexchange.com is for windows phone developers. The site should get an exposure that it's for users not for developers.

    Maybe the site could be renamed to "Windows Phone Users" or something similar?

I think we have a lot of great question but many regular users are not noob in the subject.

It can be bad since we end up not having low knowledge questions. I've started to ask some question I know the answer to make our knowledge base grows and looks like it worked and the community responds to that.

I think we have a problem with some question that were answered but the OP never got it. A lot of times the OP just abandon the question and maybe even the Q&A. Sometimes looks like they don't want wait a couple of minutes or hours.

I would love the see a custom icon/favicons for our Q&A. The default blue is getting old to me ;)


The questions usually show up quite well placed in Google searches, but not so on Bing. Perhaps there is some optimization that could still be done in that regard?
