What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

If a beta Stack Exchange site is about to get deleted, will users be given any advance notice, like an e-mail? Such notice would allow users to save some of the better posts before they get deleted.

When a beta site gets closed, a data dump of all of the posted questions and answers is made available. –  Robert Harvey Jul 11 '11 at 16:35

To my knowledge, for each of the sites that did get deleted, it was approached differently. I think Gadgets got a fair warning, Atheism was kinda already recognizing it as was AI, but How Stuff Works apparently was sprung pretty swiftly. I think we'll need official word for this one. –  Grace Note Jul 11 '11 at 16:41
    
Oh cool - is there an archive of old beta sites that did get deleted? –  InquilineKea Jul 11 '11 at 16:46
