General discussion for android.stackexchange.com
which is accurate but a bit... flat. I think it could be improved in two ways:
It could be more inviting. The description is our opportunity to really sell the room, get our target audience interested, make them realise how fun we are and the interesting discussions we have. Right now I'm afraid it's just telling people exactly how fun we are.
It could set the topic better. Just like the main site, we get programmers asking programming questions every so often. The thing is, most of these people know that ASE isn't for them: they come in and post a link to their question on SO, because they've not understood that SO has its own chat system on chat.stackoverflow.com. I've heard rumours that the two chat servers will be unified Real Soon Now, but as a programmer myself I know better than to pin my hopes on vapourware. I think a description that described the topic itself, not just a link to the site, would help visitors to realise that it isn't the right place to get more attention for their questions on SO.
I think the electronic engineering room has a good description, which is open and friendly but still focuses on the topic and sets an ethos for the room.
A place to talk with friends from the EE community about vacuum nanotubes ... and beer..
Could we have something this good? What are your ideas?
