Proposal: Speculative Science
Recently in yet another discussion about too broad scope of this topic, I saw moderator's opinion talking that adding science qualification to topic is not enough for creating acceptable bounds to topic's scope. He argued this with fact that science word could have many different interpretations. I can't disagree with it, because when people will ask a questions, they will be on their own to guess that questions should match physical science scope rather than any other science they might think about. Not sure if physical clarification is appropriate enough, but you can correct me.
After all comments we received about "Speculative Science" scope (including moderator's comments), I suggest to concretize title and description of this proposal with something like "Speculative Physical Science" for preventing this proposal to repeat the "What If" scenario.
Update (before proposal edit)
Currently, example questions are already contains questions that are not related to physical science (which does not mean that these questions are not interesting, but anyway). I also saw downvoted question which perfectly fits to this proposal, and what even more confusing - it contains comment talking that "It's a very nice physics question. Not so much a "speculative science" question".
As you can see, despite of the early "define" state of this proposal, the level of confusion is already high. I believe that we should change title/description as soon as possible, otherwise moderators will not pass this proposal to beta.
Update (after proposal edit)
Editing of title and description of this proposal shown us that number of original title supporters is actually bigger than it seems to us when this question was created. As James suggested, let's wait for a few weeks and watch answer's feedback to see the actual community preference.
