Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

On the sidebar for a Area51 site, you see this section which shows what percent of people needed to launch the site have committed. There should be a way to see how many people are still needed to launch the site. A mockup of what this could look like is below.

There aren't a set number of people. It depends on how much reputation on existing SE sites the person committing has that determines how much they count towards the 100%.

And it's currently stuck at 90% because the code for the next stage hasn't been rolled out yet I think (but it's coming). – Michael Pryor Jun 22 '10 at 23:08
Well, then it could show how much rep is needed to go to the next stage. – Henri Watson Jun 22 '10 at 23:41
@Henri It's not that simple. It's a fairly complicated formula that takes several factors into account. – waiwai933 Jun 23 '10 at 3:34
