DavRob60's answer is basically right, but I wanted to take this opportunity to write up a more detailed answer that applies to more than just SciFi. What we've done before There are several different types of contests that tend to pop up on our sites. They often overlap, but in the most broad terms they are: What I like to call "internal contests" ...

I can't see that the overlap would be of necessity strong. Of our top tags (story-ID, harry-potter, star-wars, lord-of-the-rings, star-trek, movie, and doctor-who), none fall clearly into mythology.

This isn't a feature that can be implemented via a decision here. You'll need to raise it on the main meta site. For the record, I think that this is an irrelevance. These sorts of low quality worldbuilding questions are generally a result of people not reading the tour and FAQ before they decide to post their off-topic questions on our site rather than a ...

So, let's talk about some potential problems, and what the proper thing to do about them is. New idea- Ultimately, any new idea should be passed on through the meta site, at least one coming from users. It might be a good idea to flesh it out, especially if it is rather complex. I suggest that one brings it up in the chatroom in that case. Problem question ...
