Proposal: Genealogy & Family History
Is a notification sent out to tell followers of a proposal that it moved from the definition phase to the commit phase?
If a notification isn't sent then I think the system is broken.
- Before I created a proposal and began visiting the site too many times every day, I would only visit Area51 a few times a year, even if I was interested and following a proposal. That's because progress is usually too slow to warrant frequent visits once you've used your 5 votes and created example questions (if your proposal needs them).
- The Genealogy proposal attracted a lot of new users to SE. Most of them won't come back without an email, which means people interested enough to create a new account (and sometimes even vote and create example questions) won't know that all they need to do now is click a simple button to commit.
