I would like to ask for a proposal about LINQ, but I don't have the knowledge to do so, and I don't want to create a proposal where I'm the one asking.

I looked and didn't find where I could "ask for proposals when you think that is a good idea, but you are a newbie at it", and there is nothing in FAQ or in the Advanced Super Ninja Search Options

I think that it is a good idea create a place where you can suggest questions for proposals. When you don't have the expertise about the subject, but still think that it is a great idea.

Are there questions about LINQ that would not be on topic on SO? I've linked to the tag, which has over 10,000 questions. – justkt Mar 30 '11 at 12:53
@justkt, consider expanding that and posting it as an answer. (: – Rebecca Chernoff Mar 30 '11 at 15:48

Area 51 has a Discussion Zone where you can post ideas, but I think that what you're describing sounds like it belongs on a normal proposal. New site proposals need examples of good off-topic questions as well as on-topic questions in order to be well defined.

i'm taking you as answer, because is what i asked i took a look at the faq before post it, and I had not understood, where it talks about what can, and can not be posted. – Michel Ayres Apr 4 '11 at 14:07

Are there questions about LINQ that would not be on topic on SO? The tag has over 10,000 questions. I am no LINQ expert, but I think there would need to be a significant area of LINQ that wasn't programming-related for a proposal to be allowed, much less for one to thrive.

In other words, it has to have a set of questions similar to those in the about-to-be-launched SharePoint Overflow that don't belong on SO.

In general, though, if you want a proposal with expert-level questions on an issue, how about asking some experts to help you get it off the ground. Find their websites, blogs, user accounts on forums, etc. and contact them. Then any one of you can set it up, confident in a small core.
