A couple hours ago some posted a Yiddish proposal on Area51, suggesting the creation of a sister site specific to Yiddish on SE. Not sure if the content would be in scope here, or if it should be separate.
This is definitely off topic for Mi Yodeya. Even Hebrew language questions are off topic, and that's a quite basic part of Judaism. Yiddish language is certainly off topic.
It would overlap. Language questions pertaining to Jewish life are on-topic. Language questions that do not touch on Jewish life are off-topic, even if the language is Jewish, i.e. Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino, "Yeshivish", etc.
I think "what does chulent mean?" is already on-topic if asked in the context of Jewish life -- e.g. "I've heard of this Shabbat dish called chulent; what exactly is that? Are there specific ingredients that are always present?" would be fine. But while it involves Yiddish, it's not really a Yiddish question, if that makes sense. – Monica Cellio♦ Aug 28 at 20:01
