Consensus seems to generally be that camera-recommendation questions are off-topic on this site. (See discussion Equipment recommendation questions)
But we get a lot of such questions, and they make up a large fraction of camera-forum traffic. For example, this one came in while I was writing this message.
I'm envisioning a site which would cover "what should I buy" for cameras, lenses, and other accessories. How to do things once you have something would go on this site, as well as "I want to do X; what general thing do I need?"
That way, this site could stay focused on photography, but people could still have a place for these kinds of questions. Another important distinction would be that while this site generally aims for timelessness in the answers, the new one would be more of-the-moment.
General brand war flamefests might be an issue, but I think we could keep them in check (especially by clearly noting that "what brand is better" isn't helpful).
Thoughts on this? Shall I propose it over on Area51?
