Okay, not precisely a question, but important to many here, I think.

http://literature.stackexchange.com is now in beta and already churning up questions. Given that we get quite a few "discussion of literary works" questions here — it's even one of the close reasons — I thought our community would be pleased to see a sibling site's birth and might perhaps wish to contribute.

    I don't think anyone's going to ban you from here for mentioning it :o) BTW ... Thanks for mentioning it! Commented Jan 19, 2017 at 2:39

    Meta is the right place for announcements. This is great, and glad to see :-)

    That being said, Literature is currently in private beta, which means people who aren't already in can't visit or contribute for a few weeks yet.

    Please add Literature.SE (as well as Worldbuilding.SE) to the list under "This question belongs on another site in the Stack Exchange network".

  • @ what yes, the minute it's open to the public, we should absolutely add both of those to the close/migrate options. @Standback, how do we make that happen? Commented Jan 19, 2017 at 11:23

    I'll look into it.

    Usually SE won't build in migration to a beta site, but maybe they'll make an exception for this one. In general, they look at migration history -- how many questions does site A actually send to site B? -- in making their decisions. I haven't reviewed our migration history lately, but mods have a view of this data that @Standback has probably found by now. Commented Jan 19, 2017 at 16:05

    There's a back door into private betas: find the Area 51 page, use the "visit the site" link, and create an account from there. Commented Jan 19, 2017 at 16:06
  • Last I checked, we could only have one "standard" migration destination and that's the English site. But people can always vote to close and flag for mod attention, we'll send a question to the right place. Commented Jan 20, 2017 at 1:42

    @MonicaCellio - The backdoor worked. I'm more lurking than posting, but it's interesting, nonetheless. Commented Jan 20, 2017 at 13:08

  • the place is crankin'. I have never seen so much activity in such a short time. O.o Commented Jan 18, 2017 at 20:23
  • Ah, but I won't be the best question answerer on there. Unlike a lot of writers who 'critique' or 'analyse' the book, I prefer to enjoy and imagine. In turn... I'm not the best at answering questions about symbolism, references, etc. unless I do an analysis on it @LaurenIpsum Commented Jan 19, 2017 at 6:22

    C'mon over anyway! you don't have to be "the best" to be "good," or even "to have fun." Commented Jan 19, 2017 at 22:55
