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

For the two closed proposals on Area 51, there is a sidebar box that says:

You could try proposing a variation of this site that you think will have a better chance.

The creation page now requires that you add a category parameter in the URL, which should be the category that the closed proposal was listed under. However, the existing link omits this parameter and links to a 404.

Obviously, this is not too much of a concern presently with only two closed sites, but it should be a fairly trivial fix.

The broken links on the failed-proposal pages, along with a couple other hard-to-find broken create-proposal links, are fixed now. Thanks.
