Following the suggestion in this meta post, some new feeds have been added to the Academia chat room. The feed will post in the room each time a new question is posted on one of these tags:

These specific tags were chosen because:

  • The content of most of the questions in them is highly related to the areas that are in the scope of Academia, and
  • They are fairly low-volume (we don’t want to overwhelm chat)

The purpose of this meta post is for users to give feedback on the feeds in chat: “I hate this and want all the feeds to go away,” “I want X tag on Y site to also be added because Z,” etc.

As each of these feeds is posted by its own dedicated user, you can get rid of them on a per-feed basis by simply ignoring the respective user.

    My goodness: this means chat might actually be used on a regular basis!

I suggest to add:

  • The CS Theory tag looks good. The Math and Biology tags have many questions that are too math- and biology- specific, and the CS tag seems to have many questions that are low-quality or not suitable for SE. I feel like the education-research questions on Math Educators that are relevant will mostly also be tagged with undergraduate-education or graduate-education. (I don't think we're as interested in general education-research questions.)

  • I agree that the tags from Math, CS and Biology seem to be misused – pretty much like our research tag. If I had editing privileges on one of those sites, I would probably clean them up. And as with all those feeds, we have to expect questions that are not interesting for us at all.
