There is a proposal for a Typography.SE site. I leave up to each of you to have their opinion on the proposal, but I think it needs more attention!

So please go to its Area51 page, make your opinion on the example question, upvote those you like or downvote those you don't like, and add your own if you wish! (Remember, you can vote only 5 times). If you want to get news for this site in your SE inbox, you can follow it (there's a link for it on top left).

So again the link: http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/40151/typography

    The folks at Graphicdesign.sx pointed out that Typography is on-topic there. Why do we need another project? Oct 24, 2012 at 20:56
  • @MartinSchröder I know that there's this discussion whether it's on topic or not. On the other hand, I know that my proposed questions (on Area51) are off-topic on GD and on-topic on Typography.

    @tohecz: I doubt that. See here. Oct 24, 2012 at 22:29
  • I agree with Martin. Why do we need a separate site for this?

    looks like it failed. at least it was closed, to avoid siphoning off support from graphic design. too bad -- i'm really disappointed. graphic design has too much material that's off-topic for me, so i won't be joining. Dec 18, 2012 at 21:36
  • @barbarabeeton Apparantly not the first time that a typography-related StackExchange site has not survived the Area-51 status … Jan 2, 2013 at 3:58
  • I've closed on the grounds that the Powers That Be did not go for the idea

I've created a community ad for it, which you can vote on.

Terrible Typography.SE ad

If someone wants to create a better one, well, I know I suck. Please feel free to create something awesome with a duck or whatever.

    @Silex Make it into a proposal and let the community vote on it.

  • @SIlex: Is it just me, or is the kerning in "Typography.SE" wrong? If so, is it deliberate?

The Typography.SE site proposal was closed as a duplicate of Graphic Design.
