At present, the launched proposals tab in the Area51 homepage looks like this:
On the right, it shows progress bars showing that the site has gone through
Beta phases. But of what use is this? We all know that it needs to go through these stages before it gets launched and showing that it in fact has, is rather redundant. Those bars are not even clickable! It would make perhaps an iota of sense if clicking the different stages actually took you to the corresponding stage for the site.
I would request that these pointless bars be replaced with some at-a-glance stats, such as
#of users, etc. (how much ever fits in that space), similar to http://stackexchange.com/sites. This would help users "gauge" the success of each site (or interpret them in whatever way they wish).
