I was checking out the newly released college scorecard data from the department of education and noticed a link entitled "Join the Conversation" that also included the Stack Exchange logo.
The link points to questions tagged with "collegescorecard", of which there are none. Of no surprise, there is also no "collegescorecard" tag/wiki.
A few takeaways here:
If an organization is going to use open data se exclusively for their forum/q&a, it would be prudent for that organization to actually be familiar with open data se (or se in general). If that's not a possibility, perhaps it would behoove us to create a wiki specifically for this, much like a style guide.
Pointing to a blank document benefits nobody.
Creating empty question tags benefits nobody.
To be completely anal retentive, using se logo and not opendata se logo is wrong, as well as text encouraging involvement in a non-existent activity.
I was going to create an issue on 18f's github repo, but i'd appreciate some feedback beforehand. Also, this repo makes opendata se's use not entirely exclusive, but the points remain.
