Am I stupid. Where is the button to start proposal. A new site???

    I am not stupid and I have this same question 39 seconds ago while struggling like 3 minutes finding how to submit proposals... I read the whole faq and stuff, I was about to open a post about this... This is absurd

  • I was just going to ask this question. What an idiotic site design.

Go to the Main site, pick your category to the left, and scroll to the bottom to propose a new site.

  • There is only eight categories on the main page. Are you telling me that your proposals must fight such narrow constraints? This is non-intuitive which confuses and frustrates people trying to find the afore mentioned button.

  • @user273872 it's not an exhaustive cataloging system. Categories are simply a way to group roughly-related audiences together. In six years and 7,000+ proposals, I've never had someone suggest there wasn't enough categories. What is your proposal topic? We'll find the best category for you. Commented Dec 16, 2015 at 2:09
  • My idea is that there should be a place where people can ask their questions, and as an answer have people categorize the question to a specific stack exchange network. I think this would be useful because there are more and more people categorizing new questions on their favorite stacks as of topic, and then refusing to help find a relevant network.

  • I guess maybe that would be technology?

  • @user273872 I see. That's really what meta.stackexchange.com is for, so that doesn't really categorize as an area of expertise to build a community around. Sorry about the confusion. Commented Dec 16, 2015 at 2:21
  • How about a place for every question that seems like a legitimate, worthwhile question, and yet doesn't belong on the other networks?
