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

Why can't you select which proposal on Area 51 would be a duplicate of the one you're voting to close?

I imagine in the future there could be a follower, questions, etc. migration between them. How it's implemented now it just closes the proposal "as duplicate" but without saying which one it's a duplicate of.

[Closed as duplicate] doesn't just cover duplicates Proposals, but also covers Proposals that duplicate other Stack Exchange sites.

The close reasons were deemed "good enough for now." They will likely need some work as the humans come up with their own brand of random craziness. I didn't want to spend too much time manufacturing reasons to close a Proposal when it is better to observe actual, native behavior in the wild.
