(The moderator team has drafted this question and two answers together, with help from SE staff.)
There was a meta discussion about allowing Greek on the site some time ago, but the conclusion was somewhat unclear. It was a fruitful first discussion, but it would be good to have an actual policy towards Greek.
We have had two purely Greek questions so far:
- Ancient Greek English to Greek translation — closed and deleted due to other problems, but some users (above 2000 reputation?) can still see it
- Why is the Greek definite article τη duplicated in this sentence?
What should be our policy towards Greek questions? If you answer, please give a "full policy". If you have partial ideas, leave them as comments instead, either under this question or under the answers.
I think all agree that questions related to Greek are on-topic as long as they have a connection to Latin, too. But that would be a very incomplete policy, since it does not say what to do with Greek questions without Latin connection.
One option is to wait for more Greek questions to come in and judge each one separately. After some amount of judging we will have a policy which we can write down. Some people will act according to what they perceive to be the present policy (which is good!), which makes it difficult for the policy to change due to precedent. Therefore it is better to form an opinion with a public discussion at a general level. Some details can and will have to be left open, but not all.
We have drafted two possible policies, but you can also suggest new ones. Notice that the policy need not be final; we can change our mind if things turn out differently than anticipated.
The name of the site is not going to change from "Latin Language Stack Exchange". If Greek is allowed, it will have to be a side topic of some kind.
Update, November 6, 2016. The current scores strongly favor accepting Greek, so I have accepted the top answer. The policy suggested there is our preliminary policy, but we can change our mind later. The two pro-Greek answers are almost tied. As always, the most important method of steering our scope is voting at the main site. I hope Greek questions will not disturb those who are against them.
Like all policies, this one is not carved in stone. Discussion is welcome, either here, in a new meta question or in chat.
