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


You can find closed sites by searching for site:area51.stackexchange.com "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"

    @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 is Vaccinating Jul 31 '14 at 15:03

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


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.
