The proposal description reads:
Proposed Q&A site for theologians, professors, historians and scholars who want to learn about the gods and their stories. All types of Mythology from across the globe will be covered here.
Nowhere does it say that "amateurs" are encouraged to be members of the site; in fact it seems explicitly discouraged by the listing of several professions related to mythology. I might be slightly biased because I'm used to the boilerplate "...and those interested in learning more" than often appears on proposals, but it does stick out at me as being missing here. Is this site only geared toward professionals in the field (which some proposals legitimately are)? I'd be interested in participating if those of all levels were welcome, and don't want to intrude if the scope is intended to be higher-level than that.
