When I committed to this proposal, I agreed to ask or answer 10 questions during the next 3 months or something. But right now I can't see a way to ask or answer linguistics questions. Except this "start a new discussion" thing, which seems to be more about the proposal.
So... can I not ask or answer linguistics questions during the commitment phase? It seems unrealistic to solicit a commitment to do X, and then not allow people to do X for an unknown period of time. By the time I'm allowed to submit or answer questions, I will likely have forgotten about this proposal. Maybe that's just the way area51 works?
