Here is one suggestion.
Please comment or leave other answers if it feels suboptimal.
The site is for questions about the Latin language throughout its history.
We welcome questions about all aspects of Latin language, its relation to other languages and also cultural and historical questions that are strongly related to Latin. The site is aimed for experts and students in the field.
The site is not a translation service or a homework help center.
Have a look around to get an idea what kinds of questions are welcome here.
Possible topics include but may not be limited to the following:
- Latin grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation
- etymology and relations to other languages
- interpretation of difficult passages and works of literature in Latin
- history and culture when directly about or when there is a strong connection to the Latin language
- requests of examples in literature for uses of certain words or structures
Questions may be asked in English or Latin, preferably with an English summary if in Latin.
If you are not fluent in either language, post your question in your language of preference and provide a rough translation to English or Latin.
The following kinds of questions are considered off-topic:
- translation requests or etymological queries that show no serious research effort using readily available online sources
questions that require an extremely long answer; if you want a long in-depth explanation, ask for a reference and a brief summary instead of a full explanation
(This is covered by the "too broad" closing reason. We can add more details later if the need arises.)
- requests for homework help unless they show significant attempt to solve the problems without outside help
(Note: Some language sites disallow basic grammar questions. I am inclined to allow them. If they become a problem, we can add them to the off-topic list.)
Questions about the site itself should be asked at the meta site.
Before asking, please have a look at resource questions posted at the meta site: <insert link to meta tag for resource questions>.
(We should only add this bit once we have figured out how to proceed with listing resources.)
