I intend to propose a site for International Commerce, specifically for

Any question about legal, financial, regulatory, and political implications of international commerce, activity and international and regional legal frameworks.

But I'm stuck at the 3rd step where a community URL is needed.

I'm aware that it is very unorthodox to use a meta question as community proof of interest, as well as the fact I lack the resource to do it more formally.

Reasons that I believe such site would be relevant

  1. The first reason is a personal one. Nvidia's 2020 announced purchase of ARM from Softbank represents a major incident of interest to a) UK's claimed national security from government officials, b) Some of China's top scientists, c) Industry, as a majority of essential basic semiconductor products will be single-sourced henceforth.

  2. International/Intranational/Industrial standards poses a bar for small businesses to enter certain sectors of industries in some regions; security standards in particular deserve special attention, as a few major markets pose madatory requirements for the use of cryptographic algorithms and access control system implementations.

  3. The various executive decisions made during the previous Trump government had serious impact on international relationships around the world. While this part would overlap in scope with that of Politics.SE, commerce aspects are explicitly off-topic for them.

    This question is pointless. If you don't have a community to bring, Area 51 and Stack Exchange will not provide it for you. If you have a community, you should be able to demonstrate their explicit support with at least one URL.

    @Nij how does one 'have a community to bring'? Presumably if one has an established community, they don't want to move.

    You mean like all of the groups who have tried (and some of whom succeeded) in doing so for the last two years? Some of whom give explicit reasoning why they want a site on Stack Exchange, not just Reddit or Facebook or Twitter or email chains? All of whom had to demonstrate there was a large backing in some way, before being allowed to progress?

  • I guess you could bring a community from anywhere. Including Area 51 and Stack Exchange. Why not?
