What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I can see private beta sites on my userpage, but not on the account tab. It seems like the correct behavior would be to hide the private beta site.

@Nick What exactly does "completed" mean here? That it's now shown on the accounts tab as well, or that it's hidden on the userpage? – CodesInChaos Dec 16 '13 at 9:05
@CodesInChaos hidden in both, like br.stackoverflow currently is - since linking you to a 404 isn't nice – Nick Craver Dec 16 '13 at 11:04

Your participation in the private beta is public knowledge: it's even advertised.

That is, all Area 51 proposal pages list the committers for a proposal (who are automatically made private beta members) and a beta site's most active users, even for private beta.

You can see the list for Movies right here:

Movies - Area 51 - Stack Exchange

Beyond that, the private beta's data and activity exposed to the API, and we can see everything that's going on anyway by using sites like Stack Mobile.

But I guess a more direct answer to this is, there's no point in hiding this information: if all goes well, your site, and all activity you've done so far on the site while it's in private beta, will be public anyway in a few days.

This makes sense, but why does the account tab hide it? – Pubby Dec 5 '11 at 20:42
@Pubby That seems like a bug/oversight, given it's advertised almost everywhere else. – user149432 Dec 5 '11 at 20:46
