Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

On the meta site for Biology (and according to comments all metas), the moderator statistics page has a 'default' date jump-to for private beta start:

Meta Site Analytics date jumper

Things are fine on the main site:

Main Site Analytics date jumper

Furthermore, whilst I cant go into detail, the site statistics for meta visits are wrongly recorded - I'll post in the Teacher's Lounge with specifics.

Same on Meta Programmers. – Yannis May 6 '12 at 11:37
On Linguistics it's fine. Same for Chinese Language & Usage. – Alenanno May 6 '12 at 11:51
@Alenanno: The main sites look like they're fine everywhere, it's jut the meta sites that are affected. Are you sure that Meta.Linguistics, etc. are fine? – Cody Gray May 6 '12 at 11:54
@TheEstablishment My bad. You're right, on Meta they look like the screenshot examples. – Alenanno May 6 '12 at 11:55
It happens on Drupal Answers too. – kiamlaluno May 6 '12 at 21:56

We should be pulling from the parent site here since that's the database in which these events are logged.

Starting with the next build the dates should be correct (or hidden in the case where no private beta occurred, for the first few sites).

Will that fix the inaccuracies too? :) – Rory May 8 '12 at 20:51
@Rory - Nope! We've grown past the point that Google started changing the number to sampling...nothing we can do about that without a very large monetary investment :-/ – Nick Craver May 8 '12 at 21:33
