It's not deleted yet, only closed. It'll be auto-deleted 30 days from its close date, at which point it will also disappear from your profile. Letting everyone go and uncommit because it's now closed ...

Is there a bug in the "total reputation" tab when committed users are shown?

If I want to commit to any other, I have to uncommit or any of the committed site must be launched in beta. Not quite true—the site must be launched and you follow through on your commitment to that ...

Can't upvote questions on area51 proposals on bioinformatics

The proposal has reached Commitment. You can't do anything to the questions now - those questions were for defining the scope of the proposal - that's why it's the Definition stage (orange). Now it's ...

A user who posted 11 times in the Beta is not being recognized as having "fulfilled commitment" but users with fewer than 10 posts are

I don't see that this user was ever committed to the proposal. It's harder to determine that when the proposal no longer shows up in the Current Commitments section, but a couple things indicate there ...
