So I posted a question Push-ups at the office, more often or more at once? it was almost immediately closed as off topic (apparently doing things to stay healthy are not in scope).
So I went looking in Meta for what made it off topic. I found 82 posts containing "topic" there are only 370 questions on the site. That implies for every existing question on the main page there are 4.5 posts in meta about what is on topic.
Earlier today I came across Should answers without references be immediately deleted? which was just to depressing to read.
In my experience here, there has been a lot of negativity; down votes, not happy about this or that. To me it feels like the community is trying to set such high standards and narrow scope that it is strangling it's self.
It might be a bit early in the launch to be discouraging participation (IMHO). What is the goal of this proposal and how do you expect to reach it?
Do you want to be greatest site on the internet for all thing related to Health? Or do you want to be the place where a few answer to a few questions can be found.
