I've been reading The 7 Essential Meta Questions and #2 is about who the site is for and what is on- or off-topic for the site. This will serve as the basis of the documentation for the site, in particular the listing of what is on topic that is currently pretty sparse compared to say StackOverflow's page.

Actually, you should split this up into specific meta posts.

Everything related to open science is on-topic, unless something is voted/decided to be off-topic. General SE rules apply.

Nice find. This is my first private beta, so I'm still learning the ropes.

What's on/off-topic should be discussed with a separate meta thread for each topic of contention, preferably with an example of a debatable question. Shoving this into a single thread gets very messy, with important discussion lots in comments and no way for people to keep track of the issues they care about. So I am voting to close this question as too broad.

Please forget that obsolete blog post and read [The Real Essential Questions of Every Beta](http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/223674/the-real-essential-questions-of-every-beta) instead. (Yes, [we've asked SE to link it instead of the blog post](http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/201776/could-we-update-the-7-essential-meta-questions-blog-post-or-not-link-it-promi)).

Ask Open Science used to be called Open Science Q&A but we changed the name when we registered the domain ask-open-science.org. Everything else stays the same: We are still hosted by Bielefeld University Library.
