Proposal: Sports

I encourage everyone who was lumped into "sports" to uncommit if you do not believe that such a broad focus will create meaningful discussions about the particular activity you had committed to.

    I was interesting in getting a running site going. I'm not interested in getting a "sports" site going. I don't really care to wade through chaff about the Superbowl or other non-participatory sports. Commented Feb 6, 2012 at 19:01

    I agree with Lance: running is a large topic, and is certainly not "too specific". It would have been nice to get a running SE going, but I am not going to commit to a Sports SE, where 90% of the questions will be about people watching sports on TV. I am not sure why anyone agreed to have Running merged in with this.

    I disagree. This is not nonsense. Your reply, however, was.

  • Do you have some weird obsession with stalking my posts? This is the second one you've found and replied to. Go annoy someone else if you have nothing constructive to add.

Definitely - I did not commit to the Sports proposal and was opposed to the proposal I did commit to being merged into it, for the reasons you give.

In order to uncommit I had to do the following:

  1. Go here http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/27135
  2. Click "Commit!" and fill in the form
  3. Click "Uncommit"
  4. Go here http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/27135?phase=definition
  5. Click "Unfollow"

This has removed it from my profile - though the commit count didn't appear to change, so not sure if it took effect or if the number is cached.
