Hello fellow redditors & SO users!

There are a few great questions on the sub /r/history, for example:

Is it fair to call German soldiers during WW2 Nazi's?

[I believed] that the beauty of Stack Exchange is not only as a Q&A site but also an information aggregation site. On the other hand, Reddit is more of a BBS and I shudder to think that some great historical question asked by redditors will be lost due to this essential difference in the philosophy of these sites. (Although I recognize that there is a danger of this in anything posted on the 'Net.)

So my question is this:

Is there any benefit (i.e., in the preservation of knowledge) in cross-posting these sorts of Q&As on different history subs to SO?

  • This is essentially a matter of opinion that boils down to one's preferred definition of what "Nazi soldier" is in reference (political affiliation, ideology, description of soldier of Nazi Germany, etc). – Semaphore Jan 12 '16 at 6:56
  • @Semaphore I'm not worried about the content of the reddit post. It's more a question of how to use SO to preserve things that might be lost on other sites. – franklin Jan 13 '16 at 0:43

    I'm not talking about the content, I'm pointing out that it would tend to fall under "primarily opinion based" as a question here. – Semaphore Jan 13 '16 at 12:22
