Eduardo Hernández posted:Don't know if I agree with this. I haven't voted for a few of the Niches because simply I do not think the subject is well described nor I fully understand what it is.
If we vote "Yes" for every single Niche just because "We are a supportive community," then we should just skip the voting altogether. My 2 cents
I think that is the problem. Just because someone doesn't know what Darning Lore is, doesn't mean the one who submitted it isn't deeply connected with content creators from the sock-darners subculture and the seedy back-alleys of underground knitters & stitchers. The Niche proposer is the one who sees its potential. The community is here to vet redundancy and violation of terms.
Language is important—similar to the Niche "owner" fiasco... "voting" is presenting its own set of presumptions that are causing internal friction.
And @David Dreezer I don't think you'd be excoriated... exfoliated maybe, but never excoriated. At least, not right away.
