I want to propose a Hebrew Q&A site but I don't understand what does is mean "
Please link to the community (or announcement) who will be supporting this proposal" - How do I get a community or announcement ?

    Side note: A Hebrew site was proposed, and failed, at least twice already. There was also a broader Semitic Languages proposal more recently, but it too failed.

  • Don't know. I followed it, but wasn't really involved.

  • Hebrew and Semitic Languages has been proposed 11 times. They failed largely because nobody has rallied a community to actually build it. That is, in part, why we ask that folks come here with a community interested in building their site. We do not have a community here to build a site for any subject proposed. Dec 19, 2018 at 16:22
  • I don't know how to establish a community or where to start

  • you'd need to already have access to a large enough audience via other means of communication, i.e. social media, popular blog, YT channel, where you can galvanize your followers with ads to support the site proposal, or find someone else who'll agree to help you do it through their own channels, but if you need help in Hebrew as a learner, i might be able to give a hand via say Twitter Jan 26, 2019 at 21:16

When you read the rest of that prompt, it says:

When you submit a proposal for a site, it is generally assumed you have access to an audience to build it. Area 51 cannot find that community for you.

Asking you to link to the community who will build that site comes out of the requirement that you cannot just post a proposal and expect someone else to build it for you.

You can read more about the history and source of that requirement in Changes to the Area 51 process.
