Proposal: **Biophysics **

What kind of questions would you ask in this site? Leave your answers below and I can post it as a good question for the development of this site.

  • Hi @JamesJenkins , as you have proposed this website, what do you think about, what kind of questions would be asked. I mean why don't you post your own answer? – user May 25 '14 at 16:06
  • I did not propose the site, Julian did. Everyone who wants to participate can post their own questions. – James Jenkins May 25 '14 at 16:40
  • As @JamesJenkins mentions in his answer, there's already an active Biology site. I can't think of anything within Biophysics that would be off-topic there. Until such activity is bursting at the seams on an existing site, it's hard to substantiate the need for a new site. Also note that such topics as membrane biophysics that are pertinent to neuroscience would be on-topic on Cognitive Sciences as well. – jonsca May 26 '14 at 1:35
  • @JamesJenkins sorry I mistakenly clicked on your name while writing my previous comment. – user May 26 '14 at 8:58
  • This isn't really how the proposal process works. Example questions are posted beneath the proposal as part of the Definition phase and vetted through comments and voting. – Robert Cartaino May 27 '14 at 13:54

Julian there is a limit of 5 questions per person on area51 proposals. It is generally expected that the person who proposes a site have some questions in mind (kind of pointless to suggest a Q&A site if you don't have any questions.

This means you should post the 5 questions you think is the best fit for the site.

As there is already a Biology site, https://biology.stackexchange.com/ your 5 best questions should be ones that are not a good fit for the Biology site.

Everyone else is allowed to post their own 5 best questions.

  • Alright, but however I need help by others too to contribute. This is what will provide support for this site – jfasd May 25 '14 at 16:49
  • @JulianRachman your 5 questions are important for shaping the proposal. You need ones that highlight the importance of the need for this site. If you write strong engaging questions, it will help to bring in others with similar interests. – James Jenkins May 25 '14 at 16:53
  • Ok. Thank you. And I would like your help if you can. – jfasd May 25 '14 at 16:58
