Let's suppose that at some point the Community of a site proposal decides it would be a better fit on a different category (if it moves from a professional to a general audience and vice versa).

Is this possible without deleting the proposal and starting from scratch altogether?

  • AFAIK there are no categories called professional or general audience on Area51 nor can I generalize the existing categories under those terms. Can you be more specific about which categories you're talking about? On a second note: shouldn't this be discussed on A51's discussion meta?

  • @rene Didn't know that that Meta existed. Well, there is a category called "Professionals", and a general audience would be life or another category, depending on the proposal.

  • Area51 meta is here: area51.meta.stackexchange.com and I would suggest you then mention you're asking about switching a proposal from Professional to Science or Recreation to have no confusion about which category you're talking about.

Yes, this can be done by a Community Manager. Somebody a while ago requested that Skeptics be moved to the Science category, and Adam Lear in this answer said:

So, if y'all want to be in Science really badly, we can make that happen. Technically speaking, the change is trivial.

    Technically, that was about moving a site to another category.
