There are premade ads for Area51 proposals, and those do still exist for sites in beta, but they still call it a "new site proposal" and prominently say "AREA 51":

area 51 proposal ad

Are there any premade images that more clearly convey that the site in fact isn't just a proposal, it already exists?

I'm imagining something with the blue and white beta colors, maybe the placeholder logo, probably not mentioning area 51:

    Well, hot questions on beta sites do get automatic ad sometimes, I just saw this for example: i.stack.imgur.com/Tvtum.png Jan 13, 2015 at 20:04
  • If I recall, there's a feature request ... somewhere (I think) to make the routes that generate those ads produce something a little saner for sites that made it beyond the proposal stage. As with many things (especially where touching Area 51 is concerned), we haven't quite gotten around to it yet.

Draw it yourself over some liberally licensed beautiful stock image.

In response to a comment on actually getting the images with stunning visual effects and permissive licenses, and taking cue from the SE site dedicated to Graphic Design one finds this Q: Where are some good places to find royalty free stock images?.

    Could you add something about places to look for liberally-licensed beautiful stock images? Jan 13, 2015 at 23:24
  • I'm not really sure about gardening and landscaping, but NASA has got 90k+ images here. Most popular search engines also provide image search. Jan 14, 2015 at 0:03
