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.

If we propose a topic on area51, and it enters beta, can we use a custom domain and logo for it? Or are we only able to use the topic-title.stackexchange.com domain? Also, do we get the ability to edit the topic we proposed?

Just to be sure: are you somehow under the impression that it will become your own site? – Bart Feb 12 '13 at 0:40
The only exception is when you get something like Canonical supporting Ask Ubuntu, which is a special case. – cpast Feb 12 '13 at 0:43
Ah, the faq on area51 doesn't state what happens after beta clearly. Thanks for clearing that up. – Eric H Feb 12 '13 at 1:01

Nope, not usually. It only happens if you have a really popular site, with support from the "man" (Stack Exchange Employees). However if you were referring to using your own domain, nope, it will never be your site.

However if a site gets out of beta mode, the community will choose logos, and such.

For more on why domain names are rarely used, please view this.

Jeff no longer works at Stack Exchange. I don't think he is a part of these decisions anymore. – cpast Feb 12 '13 at 0:56
@cpast He is still on the podcasts, and is still a mod on all the sites, but fair enough, i will edit. – MarJamRob Feb 12 '13 at 0:58
@MarJamRob Confusing Joel and Jeff there? Haven't heard Jeff on the podcast recently. – Bart Feb 12 '13 at 0:58
@Bart Yuph... Thank you. – MarJamRob Feb 12 '13 at 1:00
