The https://rus.stackexchange.com/ is a beta StackExchange site, but I can't find it at main Area51 page http://area51.stackexchange.com/ to look up its statistics.

Can anyone tell me why? So I already need to note a fact we can't get attention of moderator to questions when we call him by "@". It is strange - maybe https://rus.stackexchange.com/ is now lost from SE sites list?

The Russian Language Stack Exchange site was not created in Area 51, but brought over when we built the Russian Stack Overflow for programmers. Nicolas Chabanovsky, our Russian Stack Overflow Community Manager, was working on a Russian Stack Overflow and already had a successful Language site, so we agreed to import both sites when we started building our International Stack Overflow network.

  • Russian Stack Overflow is now at area51.stackexchange.com and Russian Language - not. Both sites are migrated from Hashcode. So I can't get a reason why it's clear :)

  • @Mae Stack Overflow in Russian and Russian Language both have been imported from kind of a clone of Stack Exchange network. On the day of the import there was a proposal for Stack Overflow in Russian on Area51. We decided to join two forces (existed HashCode.ru and the proposal) in order to create as better community as we could. Then we were looking carefully at Russian Language site when it was on the old engine. At the end of the day we realised that we did not have option but import it too, since the community was strong.
