Questions about how closed Stack Exchange sites affect other sites on the network.

A Stack Exchange site which reaches the beta phase and does not maintain the site quality as set forth by Area 51 may end up closed down. See the blog post When a site grows quiet for the official announcement and rationale.

If your question is about why a beta site was closed, do not ask it here. Area 51 now has its own discussion site which acts as its own Meta. Please ask your question there.

Questions asked here should pertain to how site closures might affect other Stack Exchange sites, such as migrating their questions to other sites where they might be salvageable.
