Proposal: Expatriates

Expatriates were already ready to run in last week, but it's still in commitment phase?

Is it a bug in automatic starting engine, or SE team has forgotten?

  • As far as I understand, this usually takes 1-2 weeks.

  • The site has now launched!

The first week of a private beta is often critical to long-term success. We want to give sites the best possible chance, which sometimes means delaying the launch while we get our ducks in a row.

Our resident expatriate was out of town. :) The site should be launching early next week.
