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

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
