Proposal: Genealogy & Family History
Can someone explain what level of commitment is required to achieve Beta.
We will need at least 200 people who "Commit" to using it.
Of those, at least 100 will need to have 200 reputation points on other StackExchange Q&A sites. That is so enough people experienced in the StackExchange philosophy of Q&A sites will be there to help get the Beta going in the right direction.
Then there's a weird formula that calculates a "commitment score". But generally if we get the 100 with 200 rep, the commitment score should be okay.
As Nicol commented, the box at the right of the page says what percentage we're at, and if you click the "more info", it will give you the details.
So everyone must tell others who might be interested about the site. Use Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, email, your blog or website.
If you know people interested in genealogy who are technical and might be using some of the other StackExchange sites and might have that 200+ reputation, then especially contact them, because they will add to both sides of the count needed.
