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

I noticed today that Area 51 and the Unix and Linux beta have slightly different descriptions of their intended participants.

The site page for Unix and Linux on Area 51 says that it's a "Beta Q&A site for for advanced users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems."

The FAQ on the Unix and Linux beta says that it's is "for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems."

Dropping the word "advanced" from the site description was discussed on Unix and Linux meta site which seems to have been why it was removed from there.

I don't know if any of the other beta sites have made similar changes, but I was wondering if this sort of thing ought to be reflected on Area 51? Maybe edit permission could be given to the moderators pro tempore?

Probably not necessary to reflect this on Area 51, since the site is already launched and public..

People may browse area 51 to find stackexchange sites they are interested in. If the area 51 description says "for advanced users", potential users might never visit the site because they think it's not for them. – sepp2k Sep 3 '10 at 12:19
