I created an Area 51 proposal and I am wondering if it's possible to withdraw it.

(Please don't assume you know my reasons, motivations, or intent -- I'm just asking a general question.)


The Area 51 process was derived from our Q&A core code, so I tend to treat requests to remove a proposal much like we do in Q&A.

Essentially, if a question proposal has no additional content, you are free to removed it. But once users start putting their efforts towards the development of that idea… the proposal becomes part of collective efforts of users who have contributed to that content and would not be removed except under extraordinary circumstances.
