In concept, I like the idea that most users can propose a site. The problem is that I also like the "one proposal per user per day rule".

It would appear that the low threshold for site proposals is driving a number of proposals being made in the same day by different 'users' with improbably similar profiles:

Setting a higher bar for proposals than for voting might help protect against proposal noise.

  • Just a theory, but the pending "reset all voting data" change might be putting the breaks on legitimate site interactions for the moment... – Shog9 Jun 4 '10 at 19:52

I think this problem might be limited to one individual. Perhaps an account suspension would be more effective.

Downvote away, but I found Evan's proposal to be the highlight of my day. Maybe it was a very dark day.
