There were many concepts for the topic of the site, but it seems that people who see that site primarily for legal questions (visa, work permit etc.) have won and now everything that could possibly affect locals is likely to be closed as off topic.
The problem is, that many issues apply to both locals and expats, but almost only expats would ask them. Why?
Because those are things that are obvious to locals, because they learn it from childhood. They know where to buy X, they have opened bank account, registered for social security immediately after reaching adolthood, they know all strange legal regulations, for example that drinking beer in the park may be illegal.
But for expatriates, it's all black magic.
The reason I've supported that site on Area51 was, I was primarily interested in understanding that black magic.
So my question is, is the decision about such narrowing of the scope final and absolute? Is any question that possibly could apply to local automatically off-topic? Or there are some more common sense rules, for example the topics that apply to locals as well, but are primarily asked by expats, are allowed?
Please consider, that if 'anti-boat programming meme' was applied to Travel, you couldn't ask there about city tickets, or musea etc., because they apply as well?
Or you want to keep the scope as narrow as possible, and all 'settling down' questions should be redirected to another (new) site?
