I [Rogers] am a member of an online community of statisticians where I burn a great deal of time (and a recovering cog sci researcher). Our community website is a peer-reviewed Q and A spanning stats topics ranging from applications to mathematical theory. Our online community consists of mostly university faculty, grad students and technical consultants. The answer quality is very strong and the web design is intuitive. I think you and your readers are like-minded and would be really interested in some of the topics on the site, CrossValidated (you may know the sister site: stackoverflow.com). The philosophy is purely to further knowledge for the sake of knowledge and take pride in learning.

I took a quick look and the site seemed like it could be useful to people. The only thing I didn’t understand is, why doesn’t it have a search function? (Or maybe it was there somewhere and I couldn’t find it.)

P.S. to all the commenters who wrote replies such as, “I’m not sure how you missed the search function, it is in the top right corner of the website (the same place it is everywhere else on the internet!)” etc.:

Browsers differ. Here’s how the page looks to me when I follow the link:

And no search box appeared when I scrolled around on the page. If you click on that x on the upper right, the orange bar disappears, revealing a search box underneath. Unfortunately, there was no “click on this x to make the search bar appear” note, and I had no idea this was the way to do it!
