Proposal: Operations Research
I know new betas usually launch on Tuesdays. Looks like we won’t launch today, so, will we need to wait until next week?
After some technical delays, the site is now up and running.
Site launches are typically approved on a Thursday or Friday, and scheduled for launch on the next available Tuesday (accounting for holidays, vacations and other events). I don't see any delays. Since the proposal was completed over the weekend, it should be scheduled later this week for launch this coming Tuesday.
Update: And now I'm bringing good news! The site is up and running.
I'm the developer that launches new sites and unfortunately I come bearing some bad news.
The original date for the private beta launch got delayed due to a security incident that we had to resolve first.
The plan then was to launch this week, but we are hitting some issues with database creation that also need to be resolved before we can proceed here. Long story short, we broke creation scripts a few months back and site launches are infrequent, so it went unnoticed. There are two possible fixes. One is easy but might not work, the other would be a sure thing but is a substantial amount of work.
I'm trying out the easy way first, and if it works out, the site will launch by the end of this week. If it doesn't... I'll have to come back with an updated timeline.
I understand that y'all have been waiting for a while, and I apologize for the delays. I'll get y'all up and running ASAP.
