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

I couldn't figure out why I wasn't counted as following my own proposal, turns out I hadn't confirmed my email address. (It had been sent to my work email by mistake)

Surely it's not a good idea to let people propose sites without confirming their email?

Also, "following" your own proposal is a bit strange, but it does get around the lonely looking '0' followers when you start something, so I like it.

Re the E-Mail confirmation: Why not? It stands to reason the proposal counts, not the proposer. – Pëkka Aug 9 '10 at 22:01

We actually already implemented this (or so I thought). It turns out we had a bug whereby a user with >= 50 rep with an unconfirmed email address could still create a proposal. This is fixed now.

with bug you mean your if(user.eMailConfirmed) was actually if(user.rep >= 50) ? :P – Tobias Kienzler Aug 10 '10 at 7:44
