What are the success criteria for an Area 51 beta site?

Have you guys checked audio.SE A51 page? It's in bad shape. I also checked how it compares with the other sites (using Default sorting) and it's near the bottom, and it's been at least a month in existence. Is there a risk it might be closed?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I know the "dupe" is newer, but it will answer this question, and has a more general application. This is pretty localized. – Adam Davis Jan 25 '11 at 13:47

I thought of posting there, but I wanted a bigger community to comment. (maybe even a call to arms... let's rescue the site :-) – Tshepang Jan 25 '11 at 20:34
@Tshepang: I can appreciate your reasons, but having each site ask their "7 essential" questions here isn't really sustainable. Nor would it work to allow promotions (come use our site, come up-vote my question, etc, etc) to carry over to here. The question should be closed as off topic, but it collaterally addresses a larger issue that may help other communities, so I left it open. – Robert Cartaino Jan 25 '11 at 20:47
