Should proposing a site have a higher threshold?
Some of the newest site proposals suggest their proposers have not only not used SOFU before (which is ok) but they also don't seem to know about it (which is a pity), see e.g. .NET Framework and Java Platform Micro Edition. I suggest a minimum rep of 75 (i.e. a connected account or a verified email plus at least 5 on-/off-topic votes for useful definition-phase questions).
