Proposal: Shareware Authors
When I look at the recently created Shareware Authors proposal and read its description:
Proposed Q&A site for software developers who want to learn how to sell, market, protect and distibute their software products using the shareware method of distribution.
what I see is a proposal where every question I can think of would already have a home at SO (if it's about code) or Programmers.se (if it's about the business of software). To me, that means it should be closed as a duplicate.
It's already got two closed votes, but they're for "Not a Real Proposal." I could maybe see that as a possible reason (given that the OP hasn't proposed any example questions), but again, to me, it's clearly a dupe of two live sites.
So I'm asking the community:
- Is it a duplicate?
- is it not a real proposal?
- Something else entirely?
