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

If you visit dev.stackoverflow.com it says:

Beta Access

This site is currently in private beta testing.

Is this a new site coming or is it just the test server?

We have three tiers of development

  1. localhost
  2. dev
  3. production

That is the test server -- development tier. So test locally, then build and deploy to dev, test there, and then if that's good, build and deploy to production.

I used to be able to get into the test server by faking my cookies but you fixed it now :( – deleted Jul 30 '09 at 20:17
    
How do I login to the test server? – kinokijuf Jan 2 '12 at 19:49

@kinokijuf You don't. It's internal. – Adam Lear Nov 6 '12 at 15:27

It's just the test server.
