I just asked about the history of CS:SE which just came out of private beta and learned that "Sadly, a huge part of our "history" vanished in the void of area51" by raphael

Being new I cannot confirm or refute that once a site leaves Area 51 its history will be lost.

If true someone may want to archive something.

  • Area 51 proposals for beta or launched sites remain archived. Proposals are deleted if they are inactive for a month, which happens mostly if they're closed or if they hardly got the attention from anyone other than the proposer. – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Apr 2 '12 at 11:43
  • @Gilles Is Raphael’s statement incorrect then? How do I see the history from before the beta? – Guy Coder Apr 2 '12 at 11:48
  • On the proposal page, you can browse the definition and commitment tabs. What has been deleted is everything associated with earlier, now-deleted proposals. – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Apr 2 '12 at 12:13
