What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

According to stackexchange.com, the network has 94 Q&A sites:

But the new about page disagrees:

My first guess was that the about page count included private betas, but according to Area 51 there are only two of them currently (ELL and Magento). Tim Stone has a better explanation for the inconsistency:

There are 98 sites, two of which are private betas, and two of which are Meta Stack Overflow and StackApps, which are only main_site Q&A sites in the technical sense. The about page should show 94 sites.

Whatever the reason, the counts shouldn't really be different, let's pick one and stick with it.

Bonus bug: The counts in the first screenshot should be in the same line. –  Yannis Jan 27 '13 at 12:33

A manual count of the all sites list gives me 96... –  Martijn Pieters Jan 27 '13 at 12:36

@Martijn Pieters: So the answer is the average of both counts. –  BoltClock's a Unicorn Jan 27 '13 at 12:37

@MartijnPieters So, both counts are wrong. Even better ;) –  Yannis Jan 27 '13 at 12:37

@tim no, MSO is listed. A51 isn't –  Manishearth Jan 27 '13 at 13:01
    
@Manishearth I know it's listed, it just doesn't "count". Area 51 is automatically excluded because it's not returned by the API. –  Tim Stone Jan 27 '13 at 13:13
    
I dare someone to close this as a duplicate of the "S" bugs... –  casperOne Jan 27 '13 at 15:10

Fixed.

The 4-site discrepancy was due to Meta Stack Overflow, Stack Apps, and 2 private beta sites.
