I haven't been back here in a while, but noticed that the web groups I was part of had have no activity, and they don't even show up in the search off the main page, but there are scads of OCW and MIT groups. I teach html/css/js - while js might fit under comp sci, i don't think html/css really do. Were these groups shut down/off? If so, can we get a web develpment group going? If not, why do they not show up in the search?

Since you've been gone we've started working on refocusing the site. We saw an explosion in groups that didn't have enough critical mass to be a productive learning environment. We also saw many, many duplicate groups. So, we decided to hide the unofficial groups from the search. At some point in the future they will probably disappear altogether. I would argue that Web Development *does* fit under Computer Science. But, I'm a Web Developer so I might be a bit biased. ;) Do keep in mind that HTML/CSS is kind of a grey area. It's considered design by some, development by others. I personally consider it development. (The stuff that the designer does in Photoshop is design, imho.) You should also review the Code of Conduct: http://openstudy.com/code-of-conduct . It has changed significantly from when you were last here.
Thanks dawg! I don't really remember the original code, but it certainly seems reasonable, and I like the "don't give answers" policy (esp. as a teacher). There must be some sort of game plan which allowed the OCW courses, or the specific "sections" that are there now. I've had the widget for the computer science group embedded in my moodle courses over the spring and now summer sections (total of about 50 students), but really don't know if any have used it. From a teacher perspective, I'm interested in tools that would take the Q&A out of my course, and put it on to a site like this, where feedback should be better and faster than you might get from 15 students in an online class. The flipside is with these large groups there's a lot of noise relative to what the student's are looking for. They want to figure out some CSS positioning, and they see all kinds of java control structures. I don't have the answer to the critical mass/dilution conversation, but maybe there's a middle ground somewhere.|dw:1338505988684:dw|
We've been playing with some ideas that could potentially solve that problem, some of which have been suggested before by other users (such as subtopics or tags) and some of which are fermenting in our minds. We don't have anything on the roadmap at this point, but keep your eyes open over the next few months.
