No, participants should post real-world, actual questions they would like ask on the proposed site. This is how we gauge if you have a knowledgeable, avid community with intriguing problems from folks actually working in the subject being proposed.

Stack Exchange is designed to host communities with applied, practical problems one might encounter in their day-to-day work or study in that topic. If the questions start to look staged or look like an introduction or marketing discussion to evangelize the subject, that will not bode well for the community proposing the subject — it would greatly jeopardize the chances that we would create a site from it.
