I know there's another Operations Research StackExchange like site: https://www.or-exchange.org

Do we know how this site will differ from that? Is that considered a related effort/are there ways to transfer users between the two?

Is that considered a competing effort? Are there fundamental flaws in that page that are addressed here? etc..


After doing some research it appears that OR-exchange is now shut down and insisting users migrate to here, so these are coordinated efforts.

That now has me curious if there could be a way to migrate all the questions answers and comments from OR Exchange into OR Beta.

As you noted, OR-Exchange is now shut down, due to over-spamming. In fact, it was the non-existence of OR-Exchange that prompted the creation of OR.SE.

There has been some discussion about migrating questions from OR-Exchange. The general idea is that if there are interesting and useful questions on OR-X, there's no reason not to ask/answer them here. But it would not be a good idea to "migrate" in a wholesale way.

    $\begingroup$ @Opt because SE sites have much more robust anti-spam defenses (including some really excellent moderators) ;) $\endgroup$ Sep 18, 2019 at 11:58
