Proposal: Genealogy & Family History
When a proposal gets close to 100% Committment, but is only short of the 200+ Reputation people it needs, what can be done to get it there?
I see the following possibilities:
Try to get the 200+ Rep on one of those sites for yourself. It's not too hard. Go to a site that interests you. Answer a few questions, or ask a few. Each upvote to your answer is 10 points, to a question is 5 points. An accepted answer is 15 points. It doesn't take long. The experience will help you once we get to Beta.
If you already have 200+ Rep on another Stack Exchange site, ensure your account at Area 51 is linked. You'll see the little icons under your name (in the list of committers) for each site that you've got 200+ Rep. If you don't see them, then you probably have two different accounts. If you can, Commit with the account that's on the other site, and uncommit from that unlinked account.
Are there any other things that can be done?
