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

From the Area 51 progress tab, it is apparent that there are 13 current beta sites, 12 of which are public. links to SO, SF, and SU, MSO, Stack apps, and the 9 oldest public beta sites.

This appears to be a bug - the list should include every public beta, and has not been updated to include the new three in the past 6 days.

The complete list is present at the bottom of every beta site.

If this is not a bug, please change the tag to status-bydesign and answer the question which logically follows:
What is the criteria for a public beta to become a member of the list at

The listed sites are older, have more questions/amswers, and have more users than the three (Tex, GIS, and Home Improvement) which are not. However, there is no clear distinction between the two groups.

There's a new version of coming very soon. We jumped the gun a little bit by pushing the new link to it before the new site is out. The new version will pull the list of sites from the API appropriately.
