I'm participating in the gadgets SE and wanted to refer to the on- and off-topic questions on the Area 51 proposal. However, I couldn't find a link to it anywhere in the SE site. If I'm not missing the obvious, could we have one?

That's a feature that will probably become less and less useful, and eventually unnecessary, as time goes on, since the site will develop its own corpus of actual questions that will be a better guide to what's on-topic or off-topic. I personally would be fine just keeping the Area 51 proposal open in another tab or something, if it's needed, for the first few days. So I don't think this is really that important.

If it does get added, it should definitely be a feature of only the beta site interface, and should get removed at some point (possibly as early as when the private beta ends).

This was right after the Beta site opened, but I agree that it gets less useful as it moves to a full-fledged SE site. – Niall C. Jul 16 '10 at 1:51

Ah yes, this is an oversight. I'll fix it in a more general way so it works for all sites.
