Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Another place where the 7-day private beta duration was hard-coded… Am I on a cosmetic bug report roll or what?

The e-mail announcing the beginning of a new public beta gets the duration of the private beta wrong:

The new Cryptography Stack Exchange site is now open to the public!
After just 7 days in private beta, we’ve already got 188 users who have asked 70 questions and written 152 answers.

No, Crypto.SE's private beta was quite a bit longer than that.

Should say 6 to 8 weeks instead. – Robert Harvey Aug 2 '11 at 22:24

Good catch. This is fixed now.

This part of Area 51 was written during the magical days of yesteryear, when private betas lasted exactly 7 days.
