I have a great (I think) proposal for area 51 but couldn't figure out how to propose it, did some research and found out you need a rep of 50? Am I right? How does that make sense?
and about the getting 50 from confirming your email, i connected my area 51 account to an already existing stackoverflow gmail acount so it didnt even send me a confirmation email at all
k, so now i got the 50 rep, and i go to start a discussion, and it says "You must have at least 5 reputation on Area 51" and ONLY ON THAT PAGE does it drop my rep back down to 1
