It has already been asked before if we can have more than five questions per site (e.g. here). I agree with the limit in general, as it ensures that there are enough contributions to the proposal, and enough diversity.

However, I think there should be an exception for the proposer of the site (and maybe for the first few contributors?). I have an idea for a site, and have written a bunch of example questions. I feel that I can't pick 5 that unambigously transport my idea. I do think that once a couple of questions have been posted and a few followers have joined, we will be able to distill the gist into a nice summary ("For people that blah..."), as it's mostly a terminology problem for me.

I have about 15 questions (and could think of more). I don't want to throw my questions away, but I don't want to put them in the mouths of friends or fellow users either - that seems awfully wrong.

So, can the proposer of a site please have, say, 15 questions? Or does anyone have a different idea?

    The proposer should not have too much power over the proposal as its detrimental overall. The community view is what should be clear in the definition phase, not the creator's view of the site. The creator after all is a single individual and the site is a community site. Its been mentioned by Robert Cartaino multiple times.

  • @AsheeshR: Therefore the proposer shouldn't have more than the standard 5 votes. IMO the more questions the better. It's the questions that reach 10 votes that create the site, and for each question proposed by one person you need ten people to approve it! OTOH, I believe it's not the proposer who should be able to add more questions - but everyone.
