Has any Area 51 proposal failed the beta phase and been closed? If so, is there a list of them?

Looks like is also on its way down. – Shadow Wizard Jul 31 '14 at 14:56
@ShadowWizard There is a general feeling of doom on the Beer Meta, but I haven't seen an actual announcement of closure. SE could try merging it with Homebrew... Computer Graphics is closing, btw. – user259867 Jul 31 '14 at 15:24

You can find closed sites by searching for "didn't have enough activity during the beta, and has been closed".

1 "Pruning season"
2 "No Artificial Intelligence in Area 51"
3 "When a Site Grows Quiet"

@ShadowWizard - odd that Relationships and Dating did not show up in the Google search (unless it is outside my "Google bubble"!). – Wikis Jul 31 '14 at 15:00
@Wikis for some reason the proposal on Area51 for R&D does not have the banner like the others, and no data dump, maybe because it was closed rather quickly or did not reach public beta. – Shadow Wizard Jul 31 '14 at 15:03

Atheism closed. Ironically, not enough people believed in it.

hahahaha oh, the irony. – Petruza Dec 31 '11 at 18:09
@Petruza: actually, they "simply ran out of questions", to be fair. :) – Wikis Dec 31 '11 at 20:58
That's hilarious, being an atheist, I fully believe that... what type of questions would you even ask? :P – Jakub Jan 1 '12 at 1:38
@Jakub: you can check out the link I provided to view a data dump of all the questions. – Wikis Jan 1 '12 at 12:25

There's been two that I know of, Electronic Gadgets and Artificial Intelligence. There were blog posts about both, Pruning season and No Artificial Intelligence in Area 51. I don't think there is a complete list, since it's pretty rare

Artificial Intelligence has failed. So has Electronic Gadgets.

It's not looking good for Atheism either.
