Awesome glad to see this community go live.
Are user level questions welcomed here or is it focused on questions for developers building on top of EOS?
This site should be a place to get answers to most of your questions about EOS, both technical and non-technical. If we limit the site to only technical questions, then people who are interested in what makes EOS better/different from other technologies will have to find some other place to ask those questions. And those sites won't have the same permanence as the StackExchange site.
No. The exchagne for developer questions only, is StackOverflow. That's the main reason we went for an general eosio StackExchange site. Using tags you can ask questions like "how is dpos dififerent than PoW" and tag it like
consensus algorithm, or "how is it possible for eosio to be fee-less" and tag it
mining or something similar.
A simple question like "Can I buy EOS in Bitfinex" could also be valid.
Those are not "programing" questions and 100% valid here.
As a developer, I think the answer is that either this site is exclusively for development questions, or it's exclusively for user questions. If there are user questions here, then dev questions should only go to stackoverflow. The culture for non-dev sites doesn't work well for devs; I want focused, answerable questions only a la SO, and I want unfocused questions removed. That's probably a terrible way for user-friendly sites to operate, and a permissive message-board style site isn't useful for getting work done.
And I don't think I see the point of a developer-focused site. Just use tags on SO itself. So - downvote development questions and suggest that they ask on SO. The worst possible outcome is a mixed site here, where we need to look both here and on SO for dev questions. This site should be for non-dev questions exclusively.
