I believe there needs to be a proposal for a spreadsheet community. I don't have a community organization website, so I can't post the proposal.

There are stats and database related communities, but a lot of the time spreadsheet questions do not fit into statistics or database discussion. For example, questions about scripting office would be much better placed in the spreadsheet community rather than stackoverflow or otherwise.

Many spreadsheet questions have nothing to do with statistics or even scripting. Sometimes you just need to know how to do something in Excel or LibreOffice Calc. I can't believe this doesn't exist already.

Can someone make this happen if you think it's a good idea? Maybe you can recommend the best place for my spreadsheet related questions?

It's actually quite simple:

  • If it's a spreadsheet program running natively on Windows, macOS, Unix or any other operating system for a computer, it's on-topic on Super User. Microsoft Excel is one of their most popular tags
    • The operating system may have its own site in the network, e.g. Ask Different for macOS, and Ask Ubuntu. Those are acceptable places too.
  • If it's running a the browser, it falls under Web Applications. Google Sheets is nota bene their most popular tag.
  • If you're using a spreadsheet app on your smartphone (not likely, but still), you can try Ask Different for iOS or Android Enthusiasts.

IMHO there's no need for a separate community, I believe the Stack Exchange network sufficiently supports non-programming-related spreadsheet questions.
