We all love Space Exploration Stack Exchange, but there is a whole world of people out there who need answers to their questions and don't even know that this site exists. When they arrive from Google, what will their first impression be? Let's try to look at this site through the eyes of someone who's never seen it before, and see how we stack up against the rest of the 'Net.

The Site Self-Evaluation review queue is open and populated with 10 questions that were asked and answered in the last quarter. Run a few Google searches to see how easy they are to find and compare the answers we have with the information available on other sites.

Rating the questions is only a part of the puzzle, though. Do you see a pattern of questions that should have been closed but are not? Questions or answers that could use an edit? Anything that's going really well? Post an answer below to share your thoughts and discuss these questions and the site's health with your fellow users!

My notes from lowest to highest evaluation score:

Summary

Overall, this site is cruising along well. There's good content and people are finding it via search. It's still small and not growing much, so we're just waiting for the second stage to kick in. Keep asking questions. Be sure to go back and fill in answers that don't meet your usual standards.

The question Does NASA have any documented procedures in the event of discovery of extraterrestrial life? has one answer that is incomplete or incorrect. On Google search I find Brookings Report which should have been mentioned.

    $\begingroup$ That was a study of implications, not a procedure. There have been some studies on implications, and if you think they are worth mentioning you should write your own answer. $\endgroup$ – called2voyage Jan 20 '14 at 15:25
