On Stack Exchange, the Blender proposal has just entered Commit stage. So, anyone interested, visit the proposal, and commit if you want!

Would be helpful if you listed advantages of a new forum system over the existing official ones.

I'd just like to stress that SE is technially *not* a forum. It is a question and answer site. If you take a look at other sites listed at Stackexchange, then you can see how it is meant for extremely conentrated knowledge, without chitchat. COmments are almost always on=topic about the post's content or format, and answers can be voted upon by the comunity at large.

Also, moderation is handed by the users at various tiers(2K rep for free editing, 3K to closevote, 10K for mod tools), as well as by elected moderators

Also, one can see that the example questions show it's already starting to become a good fit.

On Stack Exchange, anyone can ask a question but only those with a certain amount of reputation points can answer. This reduces the likelihood that you get useless answers. Also users can upvote good answers and questions so the best ones rise to the top.

The site is organized very well so it makes it a great way to have a technical question answered.

As of today we need 60 more people to join the Blender Stack Exchange Beta to make it live.
