I noticed that when I went to the Programmers Beta that I couldn't even see the FAQ, it kept wanting me to login. How do I know I want to get involved with the site (if not coming from Area51) if I can't see the FAQ to see what the site's about.

Let them read the FAQ? I thought we had to force them to read it by kidnapping their loved ones! – David Thornley Sep 2 '10 at 21:38

Did you commit to the site? I'm okay with not displaying the FAQ publicly during the private beta; you can either check out the proposal on Area 51 — it hasn't been that long yet — or wait for the public beta phase — it's not that far away.

I didn't realize it was in Private Beta, how would you know looking at the front page? There's nothing there to indicate it. – Lance Roberts Sep 2 '10 at 19:44
That's a reasonable point. When I got my e-mail for the Web Apps private beta -- the first SE 2.0 site that got made -- I got the impression that discussing the site publicly was discouraged. That discouragement wasn't followed in practice. But the admins probably haven't made any changes to reflect that. – Pops Sep 2 '10 at 19:48
@Lance: You're right, I made that a feature-request/bug. – Tobias Kienzler Sep 3 '10 at 10:05
