Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

No, there is an implied answer ie. make the proposal anyway. Also as far as I can see there is no official list, the one in that question is not complete, nor does it give any indication of the activity of those sites and if they are likely to become 2.0 sites. – JamesRyan Jun 30 '10 at 11:00
also as you can see by the lack of response to this comment my point would be ignored if it wasn't it's own answer – JamesRyan Jun 30 '10 at 14:00
