Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

Seeing how very few actually read the Quant Finance meta I intentionally post it here on the main site.

To the more powerful admins: could you leave it here for a day or two and move it to meta afterwards? (please)

On Area51 I was told to post the question on Meta - perhaps we can raise awareness of the Quant SE staff via some views or votes. I must admit I have no idea whome to ask to get genuin feedack on what the site is lacking from the perspektive of the SE-Staff.

Could you please do some spell checking of the linked question? :) Anyway I personally think it would demotivate us, I'd give it a few more months of spicy beta... – Quartz Apr 7 '14 at 9:27
sry - English is not my native language - I did write it in MS Word to decrease the amount of typos and spelling errors. Okey you make a valid agrument but I still wanted the community to know that I care and that graduating is still an option :) – Probilitator Apr 7 '14 at 9:37
@vonjd thanks for the upvote - eventhough I don't think I deserved one - seeing how I did not contribute anything of professional/subject relevant value. Still, very pleasant to know that there are people out there who feel the same :) – Probilitator Apr 7 '14 at 11:25
IMHO, the site has a very low popularity compared to Wilmott.com which has a huge and dominant quant finance audience and reach. Also, quant finance is an area with too many niche sub-areas little related to each other - for instance derivatives (& risk), quant equity research, quant macro. very few people will answer any practitioner-level quant equity or quant macro questions due to IP issues - resulting in mostly college kids asking and a few academics/ post-docs/PhD kids answering. lastly, SE is very strict as per its posting standards - all silly/vanilla posts will happen on wilmott.com – uday Apr 7 '14 at 22:27
@uday I know that Wilmott is known better but the quality of the answers is often horrible. In a time when I was still unaware of Quant Finance SE I browsed a couple of posts. Often you will end up reading one page of gibberish before arriving a more or less useful answer to the question at hand. – Probilitator Apr 8 '14 at 6:51
