According to Area 51, this site goes to public beta in 4 days (on Wednesday Septeber 1st).

What do we absolutely need to tackle in those four days? Do we need to do anything at all? Some of the 7 essential questions have been posted and discussed, but let's triage the rest.


1 Answer 1


FAQ and on/off topic:

I don't think we need to have the FAQ quite ready, most of the other public betas I spend time on didn't have one when they went public -- but we should have discussed the issues of what's on and off topic. We've made a good start on this, I think, and need to keep pursuing questions like these: https://bicycles.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/on-off-topic

If there's anyone here with pet issues, like car-free cycling or BMX bikes, you might want to start asking questions on the main site or posting something in Meta about what the limits of he topic are -- or do both, as the subject warrants. Keep in mind that, if there are questions about [topic x] here on Wednesday when the beta goes live, then people from the main SE sites interested in [topic x] will be more likely to stick around.

  • I thought this site might be useful for bmx, but the more I check back the more I realize that I'm not really interested at all in cycling...only bmx riding. so meh...it is what it is.

  • @dotjoe: I'm not sure what you mean by that. A BMX is a kind of bicycle. Sep 1, 2010 at 21:56
  • By cycling, I guess I mean people who use the bike for commuting or for traveling long distances. Where by bmx riding, I mean dirt jumps, ramps, and street riding.

  • @dotjoe: I think it would be great is we could get some BMX questions in here. Please, post some questions! And if you know of some places to publicize the board that would attract BMX riders, that'd be great too. Sep 5, 2010 at 5:36
