Some proposals have no activity for 1 or more months and stay on Area 51. Some examples:
- The Simpsons The only activity here is a comment stating that the proposal is a subset of another proposal, no real activity
- Persian Information Technology and Computer Maybe because it is on commit phase but see No Artificial Intelligence in Area 51 to figure out about the problem
- Taxation and Accounting
- Magic & Sleight of Hand I'm committed here but I can't help
- Bartending and Alcoholic Beverages
- Debate Society This is a record! Someone could do something to generate activity artificially but this proposal is pretty dead. 6 months looking into Latest Activity
- CG - Computer Graphics
- High Energy Physics
- Soccer I could generate activity here but it didn't worth. It's clear that it lacks interest

- SAS Programming Language Latest follower and question added or edit on Oct 21, latest comment posted on Nov 14. No votes casted. No activity for 2 months and no real activity since the creation. It overlaps Stack Overflow.
EDIT: I let just the best examples and my list resurrected some proposals :)
Some of them have "just" the lack of activity problem, but most have other problems either.
Proponents have no activity on Area 51 for months on some proposals.
People think that just building it is enough for a proposal to get success. It's a hard work.
If the proposal is really important it would be healthy it start again to prove its viability. Of course it rarely or never will happen.
What counts as activity?
I missed something visible? Are there not visible activities?
