In area 51 there is this proposal that has been there for 9 months it has 52 followers and I want to know is there any other way besides following it I can help support it and make it a site?
You can support a beta site by advertising it;
- Start by asking and answering lots of questions. People will only join if they see that the community is active.
- Outreach to existing communities in the same sector. Basically spamming other chatrooms and discussion forums for the same topic space.
- Post your own ad for the site as a community promotion ad on related stacks.
- Encouraging existing users to commit.
- Encouraging non-users to commit.
For what it's worth, a site that's over 9 months old and only has 52 followers is basically doomed...
