Welcome to Outdoors on Codidact!
Welcome to the Codidact home for the Outdoors community. Please use it, report problems and make requests on Meta, and collect your thoughts about what we need to support this community.
If you already have an account on another Codidact site (Writing or Meta), click "sign in" and use the same email address and password -- you're already in the system and don't need to create a new account.
This site is running on beta software that will eventually become Codidact. We started with a Q&A platform that already existed, and over the coming weeks, we will be evolving this software toward the feature set we've identified for the first official release of Codidact. This means some things will change (mostly things will be added), but the core -- a community built around questions and answers -- will not change. You can read more about the vision for the platform and the features for the first release.
All questions and answers from SE have been imported from the last data dump. (Newer content requires the SE API and we don't have that ready yet.) Votes have not been imported; this site is a clean start, and anyway, we don't know who voted so we can't tell you whether you've already voted on something. This means that, initially, the site has a large pile of 0-score posts; please review and vote as you come across them. You can use tags to find questions and answers on your favorite topics, and browse links from users' profiles (check out the question and all the answers, not just one person's posts). In addition, check out the "lottery" tab on the question list, which is refreshed daily with a random collection of older questions.
You can claim ownership for your imported content: log in to SE, go to your profile page on this site (link in the header), click on "edit profile", and go down to the bottom where you'll see an import button. Results might take some time; lots of stuff is going on in the background.
There is a reputation system here for now, and there are a few rep-based privileges, but it's kind of like a private beta at SE; everybody can do most things, so be careful. I believe deletion requires only one vote and auditing is limited. We don't have many moderation tools yet, but we do have flags. Be nice and be careful please. If you run into problems or have questions, post here on meta.
