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
