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. – Lance Fisher Feb 6 '12 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. – Steve D Feb 6 '12 at 19:04
  • same here. I want to have a running site, not mingling with scuba divers. I uncommit – Martin Helgesen Feb 7 '12 at 7:42

    I disagree. This is not nonsense. Your reply, however, was. – Nick Feb 10 '12 at 5:59
  • 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. – Nick Feb 10 '12 at 6:01

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.
