As we can read in the site faq, "Inactive proposals that do not receive any activity for one month may be deleted."

If think, if a new follower/commiter comes, or a new example question is created, it is probably considered as "activity" (and thus, saves the site from the automatical deletion).

What other activities can prevent this automatical deletion process?

  • Votes up/down.
  • Discussions originated from the site home.
  • Comments.
  • Following links from the site home.

Views don't count unless the visitor does something.

  • Thank you! How you know so many from the workings of the site??

  • So in short, via commenting your own question every month you can keep the proposal nobody is interested in alive for 12 montsh. Mar 16 '15 at 14:04
  • yep.. but even the most hardened proposer of a site might decide enough is enough and let sleeping dogs lie.
