Is the Game Developers site in open or closed beta?

I guess you are asking for Game Development on area51.

If that is true, it is now in public beta

tha'ts really discouraging as the site is REALLY slow...i thought it was in clsoed beta –  Sergio Tapia Oct 6 '10 at 21:51
    
@Sergio you mean slow as in loading times, or slow as in no reaction to a question? –  Pëkka Oct 6 '10 at 21:56

@Sergio: "REALLY slow"? There were 6 questions bumped just in the last hour. That's not horrible. –  mmyers Oct 6 '10 at 21:57
    
Your circle. It is not freehand. –  Bill the Lizard Oct 6 '10 at 22:00
    
that´s what I like about paint :) I got -1 because of that? –  sebagomez Oct 6 '10 at 22:07
    
Have an upvote from me to balance it out. You posted 2 minutes before me anyway. :) –  Bill the Lizard Oct 6 '10 at 22:13
    
is that like a rule? you have to mark stuff by freehanded? –  sebagomez Oct 6 '10 at 22:15

It's not a "rule" as much as it is a guideline. –  Brad Gilbert Oct 6 '10 at 22:25

really? where can I read that? (totally off-topic here) –  sebagomez Oct 6 '10 at 22:34
    
@sebastian no need to read about it: You are initiated now. Freehand circles are mandatory (no pressure of course, but they really are). Additional improvements are: 1. Freehand circles with drop shadows; 2. tastefully and meaningfully placed unicorns. The latter is left to the experts though, it takes a lot of skill to do well. This comment will destroy itself in 2 hours. We never spoke. –  Pëkka Oct 6 '10 at 23:43
    
Good example: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/19769/… –  Pëkka Oct 6 '10 at 23:48
    
3D freehand circles with drop shadows: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/18655/… The End. –  Pëkka Oct 6 '10 at 23:49
    
@sebastian: Sorry, if I'd just glanced at your rep I would have noticed you were new here. Check out The Many Memes of Meta. Things tend to get a little strange here. :) –  Bill the Lizard Oct 7 '10 at 1:57

You can look at a site proposal on Area 51 and see its status. Game Development is in Public Beta.
