So, I've created an Area 51 proposal. I've emailed it / tweeted it to others and added it (since you're curious) to my profile here.
What other tips do you have? Is there a good way to frame a proposal? How do you get the views after it disappears from the front page?
I've asked two people whose proposals entered the commit phase how they got past definition and both said, "Don't know, it just happened!" =:-)
Update: after Tim Post's useful answer below, I need to clarify that this is meant to be a general question for all Area 51 user's, so not specific to my proposal.
