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?

    I know the "dupe" is newer, but it will answer this question, and has a more general application. This is pretty localized.

    I really hope it doesn't close. I've found it to be a very useful resource, and feel that it fills a huge void in the audio community. Trouble is, I don't know how we get that community to find us.

The criteria for determining the success or failure of a site has been discussed (recently) here: What are the success criteria ... ?

The -literal- answer to your question is sure, it can be closed. But I imagine you should be asking what can be done about it? The place to pose that question is to the Audio-SE community — on their meta. That's what a community's meta site is for; To work out these questions while the site is still early in beta.

  • 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: 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. Jan 25, 2011 at 20:47
