In 5 years windows phone will be vintage and although updates have stalled at this point would this site be open to taking windows phone?

This has been discussed briefly on the other site.

This would bring more traction to one site.

Right now the question ratio is quite poor at Windows phone and dropping.

And retro computing it’s better.

This is some basic Q&A about merging sites.

I agree with OmarL. Just because some site is fading it doesn't get vintage - especially not with RC.SE, as, despite the generic liberal handling, our definitions are made for easy exclusion, not automatic inclusion. Then again, we do accept rather fringe areas as well - various arcade questions might give an example.

Then again, browsing the questions at WindowsPhone.SE makes me think that these support orientates questions might draw a quite negative response from our core audience.

Bottom line: I do not think that merging the sites will be beneficial for either.


Don't think so. Retrocomputing is about technology much older than Windows Phone.

Not really; it's just another discontinued platform. As such it has the same status as the PS4 will have.
