Proposal: India

Update 2: We now need just 8 more questions with a score of 10 or more. One quick tip: To adjust your already existing up-vote, you need not to down-vote that question, but you need to click on the red up arrow (red shows your vote) and put it on some other question.

Update 1: I want to remind friends in bold that we all have 5 up votes per forum that we can use to up-vote the questions having less than 10 votes. There is NO POINT up-voting a question which have already received 10 votes. Vote for the questions that have less than 10 votes. Those who have already voted can also ALTER their votes. (I think StackExchange should not allow more than 10 votes for a question.)

Hello Friends,

There are already 138 followers and around 30 questions with a score of 10 or more. What else is required for it to move to Commitment phase?


Our proposal is recently been hit by serial downvoting. Kindly cast your vote here to request moderators to look into the case. I guess if all the downvotes are reversed, we'd be almost there to commitment phase.

  • Cannot upvote as I am new to SO and it require a minimum rep. But i hope moderators look into this!! – Rahul Gupta Mar 27 '13 at 8:16

    It happened again? The number of required questions increased from 8 to 36! – Rahul Gupta Mar 30 '13 at 16:30
  • Now they are silently downvoting. Some questions with votes less than 10 votes are downvoted. And questions with 16/15 votes are also downvoted. 15 questions is increased to 17. Looks like it is acceptable here to create fake profiles and downvote everywhere as there are no actions taken by mods. – iDev Apr 11 '13 at 5:24
  • I am getting constant downvotes on several of my question even not related to the site. I am flagging it on the original Meta question. please flag from ur id too. – noob Apr 11 '13 at 5:46

    Finally we made it to commitment. Congrats everyone. Thanks to all those who joined here on request. – iDev Jun 7 '13 at 21:55
  • Yeah, but we still have a long commitment phase in between the beta. Kindly bring as many commitment as you can. – noob Jun 7 '13 at 22:42

I finally found the answer (I hope it is correct) which was not there even in FAQs! :o

40 Example Questions with 10 or more votes and 60 Followers are needed to move to the next phase: Commit.

    People need to vote up the questions which are below 10 votes to reach at 40 questions with 10 votes. – noob Mar 11 '13 at 15:36

    The count is now 13 questions from 17 questions. Voted up 4 questions with 9 score! :) – Rahul Gupta Mar 11 '13 at 16:11
  • Cool, good work :-) – noob Mar 11 '13 at 16:17

    11 more required. Adjusted my votes to include one more to that list. – iDev Mar 12 '13 at 5:44
  • FYI. I have messaged admin of one community about this proposal. If they post it in that group, we will see some more people joining here. – iDev Mar 12 '13 at 6:14
  • @ACB great!! thanks :D – noob Mar 12 '13 at 6:18

    Great! .. if other people also adjust their votes, we can easily get 3 more questions in the list! – Rahul Gupta Mar 12 '13 at 14:52
  • Now it is showing 15 required (after I transferred 2 votes :D ). Why has number of required questions increased (since @ACB's comment)? – Vinayak Garg Mar 15 '13 at 14:26
  • @VinayakGarg, Any users who voted got removed or did someone down vote all questions? It could be due to that. Right now it is saying 9 more required. If somebody is active on other SE sites, please leave a comment to the users who joined recently to vote on questions which are less than 10 votes. I can see that a few people have joined recently. – iDev Mar 15 '13 at 18:12
  • @ACB: Cool! some enthusiastic Indian must have joined the proposal :) BTW I got my answer here chat.stackoverflow.com/transcript/message/8283824#8283824 – Vinayak Garg Mar 15 '13 at 18:17
  • @VinayakGarg ... Please read the Update 2 on the question of this thread. We do not need to vote-down questions. That would not help. We just have to use our 5 votes to vote-up questions having less than 10 votes. (Your vote is shown as RED UP ARROW) Only if someone notices his up-vote at a question already having >10 votes, than he needs to click on that RED ARROW (that would cancel your up-vote) and use that up-vote on some other question with <10 votes. If possible please up-vote the questions again that you have down-voted. The number of question have actually increased from 8 to 9. :( – Rahul Gupta Mar 16 '13 at 8:03
  • @RahulGupta: What made you think that I down voted questions?? I never did that. I did exactly what you have just described. BTW Some idiot must have down voted questions. – Vinayak Garg Mar 16 '13 at 16:26
  • Looks like a group of people have mass downvoted all questions. It is now at 23 more needed after I adjusted my votes. – iDev Mar 24 '13 at 19:29
  • What's going on here!! 9 more were needed earlier, now the number is increased 17!!! Is it because of inactive followers? – Rahul Gupta Mar 25 '13 at 7:23

    @ACB please try to flag the meta question for moderator attention and try to explain the situation. I'll do it too. – noob Apr 1 '13 at 1:31
