Dear all,

Just had this idea.

Would that something you would want to support and contribute to?

It would definitely help promotion a lot to have a Stack Exchange community for Linux Mint!

Yours,

Robert

There was an effort some years ago but it didn't get enough votes, IIRC. I'll post a link to back that up if I can.

https://area51.meta.stackexchange.com/q ... t-ask-mint

And this is mine from some years ago: viewtopic.php?f=60&t=161699&p=1098939 :oops:

Thank you!

I see the main argument being that most content is already covered by Super User and Unix & Linux.

However, that makes me still wonder why they approved the community for elementary OS.
