We've certainly done this before; I emailed a curator of a museum for example for clarification on a fact that was unclear and got a response. I don't think we're of a size (reputation wise and reader wise) that something like the NHL or ICC would respond to us, though. A site with a few hundred regular readers isn't exactly something a sport's governing ...

I do have a few ideas: The field for cricket sites on the internet is not as crowded as for other sports. Therefore, it's easier for Google to land on Sports.SE for those questions than it would be for questions about, say baseball. So knowledgable cricket fans find answers to their questions on this site and stick around to answer more. Hence, a ...

Maybe creating a separate chatroom for FIFA World Cup could also help? After the World Cup is over, the room can be abandoned. This room could serve: Basically for any discussion and chit-chat related to World Cup. (It seems that it is sometimes mentioned in other chatrooms.) Maybe this would attract some users here - people like to talk about sporting ...

There are Stack Exchange apps that you can find in the App Stores, but I haven't seen any that I like. Fortunately, Stack Exchange has a mobile version of their sites that work very well. Just visit sports.stackexchange.com on your mobile browser. I use it in iOS Safari on my iPod Touch all the time, and it works well.

IMHO we can up vote posts more often. Many users answer questions, but don't up vote them. I know we should not upvote every question/answer, but there are many good content with score of 0, 1 or 2. This year only 5 users have voted more than 100 times, only 24 users have earned the Suffrage badge (Used 30 votes in a day). That's not enough. Expatriates SE ...

I think you already explained pretty good why the World Cup 2018 generated less good content. A lot has been asked before More dupes, deletions, .. Less new questions Less interest in this year's World Cup altogether People focus too much on rules when asking about football (and they're covered pretty well by now) The total number of deletions is probably ...

Since a lot of people is curious on how the VAR works, I would create a series of canonical posts describing how it works. I see we currently have Use of Video Assistant Review (VAR) in FIFA World Cup 2018, it may benefit from some expanding. Also, it is good to count on how the Hot Network Questions formula works: (see the formula here) the more votes, the ...

A good idea would be to share our interesting questions on popular and active reddit threads (which may also lead our users to get Announcer, Booster and Publicist badges), but I personally rarely use reddit and don't know how to find active threads. Why it's a good option? Well, this is the only instance someone ever got a Publicist badge on our site. I ...

Let's face some hard facts here. Stackexchange network's traffic comes mostly from the USA and the next biggest provider is India. Here is lies the problem. India and the surrounding areas, are crazy about Cricket. So lots of Indian public here come and ask about cricket a lot. Again, this is also a fact that Cricket is not so popular out of Indian ...

For the badminton tag, I'm having the problem that the terminology used in badminton, often is explained on the internet, although many times on fora and/or (poor) badminton fan sites. Should I throw in easy questions?
