Where did Chiphacker and Electronics Exchange go?
Geez, no heads-up? I miss the octopus.
As described in the original Area 51 proposal, Chiphacker.com has become a 100% Stack Exchange Network site. The owners have agreed to let us import the uses/questions and the use the domain name to get the "Electronics and Robotics" Stack Exchange off to a strong start.
It was a good match. The posts and Google ranking is a windfall to this community and using the same domain name provides a seamless experience for the existing users.
Wherever possible, we are working with the Stack Exchange 1.0 sites that have created successful communities. Generally, it is better to bring them into the Stack Exchange Network rather than shutting them down or creating competing sites. The more people we get together in one place, the better the site will be.
Have the old Electronics Exchange questions been migrated in a similar way to the Chiphacker ones? Although I didn't use it much I was a member there just after I joined Chiphacker and there were a few questions which it might be worth keeping.
Electronics Exchange is the Chiphacker 2.0 version. The name "electronics" is more generic and apropriated for this site.
