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

Unless I'm greatly misremembering, it's been like that since before MathOverflow moved to SE 2.0.
(I suspect that the site shouldn't be used anymore.)

On that URL, it will never go out of private beta.

See that dev. at the start? It is for Stack Exchange developers and staff - as a development rig. That URL was used when testing migration of MathOverflow to the 2.0 platform and dealing with any issues that came up.


That is indeed on the SE 2.0 platform.

I have made a change, so dev sites will actually have a more meaningful and accurate message instead of the beta one. This is in the next build.

Could that be made more clear on that site? (I'm well aware of; that's where I learned about SE.) – Ricky Demer Sep 11 '13 at 10:00
@RickyDemer - What do you suggest? – Oded Sep 11 '13 at 10:01
I would suggest replacing "Warning: this site is currently in private beta for at least a few more days." with something like "Warning: this site is only for Stack Exchange developers and staff.". – Ricky Demer Sep 11 '13 at 10:05
Hmm... do you speak fluent MoonSpeak? ;-) – Shadow Wizard Sep 11 '13 at 11:47
@ShaWizDowArd - Have fun with that. And the theme switcher, further down. Perhaps we will lock those down. Or not. – Oded Sep 11 '13 at 12:26
@Oded oh, I did have fun! Too bad I can't log in... :( – Shadow Wizard Sep 11 '13 at 12:30
@ShaWizDowArd - Nothing to see there. It is pretty much where the CI pushes builds, using an old backup of one of the SE databases. – Oded Sep 11 '13 at 12:53
@Oded no unicorn greeting those who log in? Disappointing! :-D – Shadow Wizard Sep 11 '13 at 12:59
