This proposal covers the same ground as another proposal; it would tend to drain audience from another Stack Exchange site.
The old proposal was closed 9 days ago at the time of writing after 13 days in public beta because it didn't have enough activity.
How can a new proposal drain audience from another Stack Exchange site if that site has already been closed?
At least for the proposals closed after 2 years in Area 51, one can try to get a new site off the ground. Why wouldn't that be possible for proposals that have been closed due to low activity?
