What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

Why is it that UX.Se is the exception to the rule with their site design?

It was shown that UX is still in public beta.

What is the process in which a logo and design is created for beta sites?

Wow. I thought UX had graduated, entirely because it wasn't Sketchy. (In my defense, I never use that site, and I've visited it maybe twice.) –  Pops Oct 20 '11 at 17:38
    
To new readers: The UX site has now actually graduated, but they had got their finished design while still in beta. –  awe Mar 8 '12 at 13:38

When a site makes it out of beta, they will choose their own logo and design.

Nothing prohibits them from choosing their own logo and design at an earlier point; however, it is required to have your own logo and design for the site to get out of beta. For a UX Experience site, having an early good design on their site is crucial. Why would want discuss UX in a Sketchy theme?

I feel it takes away the consitency of the SE site as a whole to have 1 site that hasn't reached full site-hood have a full design when the others don't.

Stack Exchange have their own designers, they usually come into play once the site gets out of beta.

User experience :P. I would assume the UX site has a complete design because it's about UX. It would be ironic in a way if they didn't.

See Jin's post:

For the UX.se site, the stats aren't quite there for an official launch just yet. However, I believe deploying a final design of the site would help to engage new UX users who aren't familiar with the Stack Exchange sites.

That doesn't make sense. –  OghmaOsiris Oct 20 '11 at 17:23

@OghmaOsiris: But would all those other sites be able to design the site for themselves and still be attractive to a general audience? I think the members of UX would be perfectly capable to provide one while the team's position is to wait until the site is ready to design one for them. –  Jeff Mercado Oct 20 '11 at 17:34
