Proposal: Operations Research
To progress to the next phase of the launch, we need at least 100 committers who have at least 200 reputation on other Stack Exchange sites. This is likely to be our biggest hurdle. (We currently have 38.)
Here are two ways you can help with this goal:
Find other SE users who might be interested in the OR&A site and tell them about it. Lots of people ask OR-related questions on Stack Overflow, Mathematics Stack Exchange, etc., so those folks are out there, but it can be hard to find them to let them know about this proposal.
Build your own reputation! This is not too hard to do, and will help hugely as we work toward the next milestone. There are 174 other SE sites; there must be a few you have questions about. Many are devoted to academic disciplines but many are not. Why not join the site for Coffee, or Board & Card Games, or Physical Fitness, or Politics? (Here's an (incomplete) list of "mainstream" sites.) Ask a few questions, post a few answers -- it won't take long to earn 200 points. Plus, it's fun!
Whether you prefer the "import from other sites" approach or the "grow your own" approach, please continue to share the site with your friends, colleagues, students, professors, Twitter followers, LinkedIn connections, Facebook friends, and blog readers!
