Bumping up questions

Should only 3 users be allowed to close questions?

This change is now live! While I was reviewing the data, it's worth noting that Quant seems to be a bit more healthy in its close voting than some other sites, though a tad bit inconsistent for where ...

QF overflow for graduate and research questions?

I thought the whole point of this Stack was to have a venue for high-level quantitative finance questions. If anything, my impression is that Stack Exchange lacks a middle ground between Quant and ...
