Language of the Month was fun. Then it died. Now there's interest in bringing it back!
I had assumed that we would just go back to the original nominations thread and pick the top-voted answer as LotM for September (which would be R, unless the voting changes significantly in the next few days). However, Bubbler suggested that maybe it would be better to start a new nomination thread, resetting the votes. I can see merit both ways:
- Keeping the current thread provides continuity, avoids cluttering Meta with unnecessary threads, and gives us an immediate answer on which language to choose for September.
- Starting a new thread allows newer languages with active users to rise to the top. Part of what made LotM work was people who knew a language teaching it to others--but several of the nominators on the original thread aren't active here anymore.
How shall we proceed?
