    This posting doesn't actually create a proposal. You need to do that on the area 51 site itself. But I don't think this site makes a lot of sense. Architecture isn't programming, but I would have thought somewhere between Programmers and UX there was already a StackExchange site that covered this. – Verbeia Mar 1 '12 at 11:45

Almost all of it is covered by programmers.SE.

  • But it get mixed up with Programming questions, Architecture is not same as Programming, i think needs a exclusive status – Basav Mar 5 '12 at 5:23
  • @Basav - Programming questions should be on Stack Overflow, not Programmers. – ChrisF Sep 27 '12 at 12:03
  • Great idea, why don't you follow this proposal? area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/87060/… – pautasso May 6 '15 at 22:06
