Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Will it take 5 votes from the community (once people get the rep) to close a proposal on Area 51 like it does to close a question on an actual SE/trilogy site?

If so, is that really enough to shoot down an entire site proposal? Or is the idea then to balance that with reopen votes?

Yes, it take five votes to close a site proposal. But it doesn't "shoot down" a proposal. Closed proposals can be re-opened in the same manner as a closed question on Stack Overflow.

Got it, thanks! – squillman Jun 2 '10 at 17:19
I don't see closing listed in the FAQ, was it removed? (I believe closing shouldn't be an option, though flagging a proposal offensive/spam should be allowed.) – Gnome Jun 3 '10 at 9:06
