Recently, I posted two questions about Crowdsourcing on CV. The first one asking for a general reference got upvoted, while the second specifically asking for a more specific reference concerning different experimental design decisions got closed as off-topic. However, quite a few commented that it appears to be on topic to them.
For me this is quite frustrating. Is crowdsourcing on topic or not? I am pretty sure it should be, because it becomes more and more important for ML, on ML conferences there are numerous papers on the topic, and the "experiment-design" tag on CV has about 800 questions.
If you disagree, please give solid reasons. If not, please consider re-opening my second thread.
