I noted that we have a tag. Looking at the questions, I found that it is for specific Area 51 site proposals.

I decided to write some tag wiki contents, but got stuck when I wanted to discuss the scope. Questions about specific proposals normally belong on Area 51 Discussions. The Help page for Area 51 Discussions simply links to a single FAQ page for Area 51 itself. It does not discuss the scope of Area 51 Discussions.

So the question is about the scope of Area 51 Discussions.

When should a question about a specific site proposal be asked on Area 51 Discussions, and when should it be asked on Meta Stack Exchange?

A little overlap is normal, but are there clear boundaries that we can establish here?
Is there a reasonable scenario where a question about a specific site proposal would be off topic on Area 51 Discussions? Or can they practically always go on Area 51 Discussions, and should we direct askers there?

  • That tag was created here, back in September 2010. Area51 did not have a meta/discussion zone back then, it was added only in January 2011 as can be seen here. (revisions of first post ever made there, which is something I've never seen before, but the date does not lie. :)) Dec 28, 2017 at 15:10

Questions about a proposal should always go in the Area 51 Discussions site, which now became more like a meta site for Area 51. (In fact, there is also an area51-meta tag that is included between the obligatory tags.)

I would redirect users to the Area 51 Discussions site, maybe saying it's preferable to discuss about proposals there.
