Skeptics.stackexchange.com is a new site dedicated to researching the evidence behind claims you hear or read. The site is a clever mix between a forum, a blog, reddit, and a wiki, allowing users to edit posts, close questions, vote for answers, etc. based on your reputation on the site.
This model has worked well for stackoverflow.com, a popular Q&A site for programming questions that gets about 1.7 million visitors/day. Now we have a Q&A site dedicated to fighting ignorance on all kinds of topics, and we could use your help with that.
The site is not a replacement for a message board like the SDMB, it is for objectively answerable questions only, subjective discussions are off-topic. We’re pretty strict on requiring references for significant claims you make. Answers without relevant references will be downvoted, and someone certainly will yell “Cite?”.
All the content on the site is licensed under a Creative Commons license, so if you find a nice answer you want to reuse on another site, you can do that as long as you give proper attribution.
If that sounds interesting to you, feel free to drop by and take a look.
