Proposal: Bioacoustics

Bioacoustics has collected the necessary number of commitments to proceed to the Private Beta phase, where you will be able to ask and answer questions and show that your subject has sufficient interest to make it as a full Stack Exchange Site!

This private beta phase is a really important stepping stone and its success relies on the committers inviting other people from the bioacoustics community to create high quality questions and answers about this subject in order for it to progress from private beta to public beta.

During private beta, the site will not be visible from the rest of the network but may be accessed by visiting the Area 51 proposal or through a link shared by an existing user. If the proposal meets specific activity targets and contains high-quality content, it will go public and be visible from the network as a beta site.

The current plan is to start the private beta the week of June 20th, so start thinking of questions you want to ask and people you want to invite!

If you have any questions about this, please let me know.

    It's more a "we're not going to build the site quite yet, we need a couple of weeks." - but framed in a positive light :D

  • It's 6-14 and I have not received an email or seen a link on the page of the proposal about the start of the privet beta.

  • @Ethan the post says "the week of June 13th."

  • @anonymous2 I interpret that as Monday of that week. But now that you bring that up it may be some time between now and the end of sunday.

  • @Irsu85: I believe any user can join the "private beta"; you just need to navigate to the URL, and click to join the site. I think "committed" users are just also notified by email when the site goes into private beta. (You can also invite people via the box in the sidebar of the Bioacoustics site while it's in private beta, but they don't actually need to be invited in order to join – it's just an easier way to let people know the site exists.)
