Where is a vote to close both unnecessary and redundant sites? SOI has succeeded in fracturing the Ubuntu SOI community now to FOUR SOI sites: SuperUser, ServerFault, Unix SE, and Ubuntu SE.
Questions about Ubuntu get answered in SECONDS on ServerFault and SuperUser. Here, they don't get answered at all. Why would we want to expend effort convincing people to come here when they're already there, asking and answering Ubuntu questions? I'd rather see all of you back on SU and SF participating in the ACTIVE community there rather than fracturing the users among four different sites.
Already, one needed to post the same question in two places just to get answers from everyone active on an SOI site. I can't reasonably bring myself to cross-post to four SOI sites when it's already debatable whether cross-posting is permitted.
Of course, creating separate posts on different SOI sites for the same question shouldn't be necessary in the first place. The user and question namespaces should be merged such that a question and its answers can easily appear on several sites, and such that users are able to participate, search, and interact across the spectrum of SOI sites without need to repeat the same activities on all sites. If that were done, it wouldn't be so bad to have extra SOI sites like this.
