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

Creating an internal stack exchange for proprietary questions?

Are sites proposed on Area 51 allowed restrict access to a group of people smaller/more specific than "the general public"? For example: only registered users of an existing web app?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Short answer is no; the site proposals are designed to be promoted for use by the entire internet community. There are no plans for private versions. I'm answering as a comment as this was covered in this question (which is about proprietary sites, but the answers also cover private use in general). – Grace Note Jul 9 '10 at 14:52
Why the down vote? I didn't know and i couldn't find the answer.. – Jeroen Jul 9 '10 at 15:03
On meta, people usually vote down if they don't want to see what you're proposing, not for "stupid questions" like on Stack Overflow and the likes. That's what I understood of it anyway.. – Jouke van der Maas Jul 9 '10 at 16:18

No. Stack Exchange 2.0 is only for public, community-driven sites.

You can however set up your own Stack Overflow clone.
