OK, so as the beta testers we're supposed to work on key aspects of the site's attributes. Taking a cue from other betas, I've made this list so we can easily find them all.

I've made this a CW so anyone can edit it and change these list items into links when the questions are made.

(Some from the 7 Essential Meta Questions of Every Beta, some from other betas)

Thanks for helping out in the beta!


I've just linked the FAQ to the tag search results page here on meta for the [faq-suggestion] tag, which we can all use for suggested FAQ items.


I'm curious how we can approach the site logo/style topic. What are the options there? Area 51 is pretty flashy compared to the other stackexchange sites. Is it possible to have a more richly designed site, or are we limited to basic color changes and a custom logo?

  • The current design is just a template used for all beta sites. When we'll get out of beta (after ~90 days), the site will get a design on its own.

  • @che: Right...but how do we go about choosing a design, and what are the limitations around what we can do with our design?

    As I have seen stackoverflow and similar sites, it's probably going to be this layout with some color/graphics changes. However, I have no idea how the design choosing is going to look.

I've created the [beta] tag for use on all meta questions to do with the beta-phase, and tagged the existing questions with it.
