We all love Martial Arts Stack Exchange, but there is a whole world of people out there who need answers to their questions and don't even know that this site exists. When they arrive from Google, what will their first impression be? Let's try to look at this site through the eyes of someone who's never seen it before, and see how we stack up against the rest of the 'Net.

The Site Self-Evaluation review queue is open and populated with 10 questions that were asked and answered in the last quarter. Run a few Google searches to see how easy they are to find and compare the answers we have with the information available on other sites.

Rating the questions is only a part of the puzzle, though. Do you see a pattern of questions that should have been closed but are not? Questions or answers that could use an edit? Anything that's going really well? Post an answer below to share your thoughts and discuss these questions and the site's health with your fellow users!

I'd be interested to hear from the 4 "Needs Improvements" on "What is Qi power?" as well as the 3 on the last question, "What choke holds are safe for a beginner?" More answers are almost always good, but I thought those two had a good selection of views and were pretty fair.

I do think that this random sampling showed off a deep need for better questions. A lot of these are not questions that people are actually facing.
