stackexchange site about the Complex networks

Dear all,

I am sorry if this seems unimportant and please forgive me Tiago for using
graph-tool's mailing list to find the right audience. As many of you must
have been aware, there exists a famous question-answer website which hosts several sites about extremely diverse
topics like science, mathematics, computation, religion, history and so on.

However, I find that the questions related to the various aspects of
networks are spread over its various sister sites related to mathematics,
computer science, statistics, biology etc. This is quite natural since the
study of networks is an extremely interdisciplinary field. On the other
hand, given the huge expanse of this field, it seems only natural to have a
separate sister site for questions and answers related to "Complex
networks" and in my opinion this would be extremely useful.

Considering this, I have already officially put forth the proposal for such
a site:

However, to actually make this proposal pass the first phase, we need *at
least 60 followers and 40 example questions (each with 10 upvotes)* there.
If you think that this should happen, I request you to kindly click the
above link and follow it. Also, it would be great if you could upload some
example questions there and try to upvote the existing ones. I would
appreciate any discussion related to this in this thread. Also, I would
highly appreciate if you could pass this to people interested in networks
somehow (for example by posting on Facebook).

Thank you

Dear all,

Thanks for all your efforts. However, we still are far from passing the
first phase. Specifically we need:

- 20 more followers
- 36 more questions with 10 or more upvotes

I think it would be good idea to spread the word among people you know who
are interested in complex networks. Also, I request you all to ask good
example questions and upvote the existing ones.

I am also going to create a separate email list for this project so if any
of you is interested in following this proposal, please drop me an email. I
really appreciate your help and I think it is important that we push this
so that we would finally have our own "Complex networks" site on

Thank you

This is very off-topic to this list, which is about graph-tool, not complex
networks in general.

Please refrain from posting about unrelated subjects.
