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 received an email announcing

The new Computer Science Stack Exchange site is now open to the public!

but when I went to the site I was told

We’ll be open to the public

within a day or so

Come back then!

I think this has happened before, but didn't find a report when I've searched. It's slight annoyance for those who jump on the emails as soon as they arrive.

It's happened several times as I recall. Probably an automatic thing that should not be automatic. – Matthew Read Mar 20 '12 at 20:02

There was an issue with the order in which this site went live. It should be resolved for future launches. You should have no issue getting to the site right now.
