I'm looking for records of failed betas (e.g., Electronic Gadgets). They aren't accessible through the homepage sort. Is there a directory or list somewhere in Area 51?

How to find:

  • +1 @Verbeia: Thanks, though it's unclear what the intent of your search is to me, though I did modify it and add it to my answer as a way to find Proposals "closed as offtopic", since I was unaware of that type of close; possible that was your intent, but not sure. Thanks!

  • @Verbeia: I see, then that search really doesn't appear to help. The search should be inclusive, not exclusive, otherwise you'll still get junk, and possibly filters out real results. Beside "closed as duplicate of [insert-existing-stackexchange]" is there any other reason a proposal is closed?

  • That said, this search might be better for the dups: site:area51.stackexchange.com "This proposal would tend to drain audience from an existing Stack Exchange site." -site:discuss.area51.stackexchange.com

  • The OpenScience proposel as well as the Theoretical Physics SE proposal have been successfully revived outside the SE network here and here.
