Every stackexchange account has a unique biography section where users can fill with stories relevant to the site.
Especially in sites such as Signal Processing, which is a big topic and contains dozens of highly-specialized sub-fields, participants' educational and professional backgrounds may be important for the purpose of formulating a site promotion/moderation/growth strategy.
On the other hand, we certainly do not want to filter or judge participants based on their backgrounds.
Thus, two questions:
- Should we encourage beta users to complete their biography section with signal-processing relevant experiences?
- How do we use that information / statistics to formulate a strategy for this site?
