I want to launch a stackexchange forum for a specific area of expertise. Unfortunately the audience is quite limited (one reason is that I need the forum to be in french).
I would like to see what are the requirement for every step from definition to public (for now I just can see that I need 60 followers and 40 questions with a score of ten or more).
I will need to invest time to go from step to step and I don't want to end up with a last step where I need 5000 users with 300+ reputation...
No precise information is available on the FAQ nor in this meta. Can someone sum up the step?
