We all love Anime & Manga 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!

    Not that downvotes matter... but I'm curious as to what your scoring system is. Are we doing this by upvotes vs downvotes... or total upvotes vs your suggested 'quality' of the answer? So much confusion... honestly it only makes sense to downvote (but I haven't). Please clarify :) In retrospect, I see you've accepted your own answer. Not that it matters, but... really? Community man, that's your username! While I would say that maybe too many questions on this SE site (and others) are subject to "what is this thing that I'm thinking of?" I think there needs to be a more critical evaluation. – Chris Cirefice Aug 22 '14 at 1:39
  • @ChrisCirefice The user 'Community' is a bot/robot. It isn't actually a real person in retrospect. – Izumi-reiLuLu Aug 22 '14 at 4:40
  • I was being sarcastic. Well, trying to be. I know that community is a bot - I was hoping that since nobody provided any actual feedback, that somebody would based on my comment. +9 vote on the question and -2 on the only answer demonstrates that more discussion needs to be done concerning this question/answer. – Chris Cirefice Aug 23 '14 at 20:59
