I like the coin-badges. :D

More seriously, I presume we passed, especially because:

I know they're working hard on, you know, actually getting everything done required for launch, and we have the easy job of waiting for the new styling to appear within a couple of days, but I'm still selfishly curious:

Anyone heard any more specific news about our launch?

We are launched!


Well, for starters, we don't have a logo.

[Update: We have a logo now! Logo for Gaming]

I don't know how badly that's going to impact things, but it might have some effect. At least the web applications site had a logo for their site. We didn't quite get one yet.

As far as dates are concerned, Betas are supposed to last for ~90 days. Area 51 cites us with 89 days past. So that gives an estimate of 1 day left, or October 5th.

The other message is an event on chat, entitled "Gaming (hopefully!) goes live!" Because it doesn't match the projected date of Oct. 5th (as according to Area 51 and other occasional calculations), the assumption is that this date is founded on something, possibly reliable. Whatever the case may be, October 7th looks to be a different candidate date for launch.

  • I guess I did make a leap... Jin does still have to work on a logo, even if it is just for "Gaming". Oct 5, 2010 at 5:00

    I just posted about the logo here: meta.gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/1161/logo-for-gaming

  • Oh hi, I posted that event. I guess I did my calculations wrong? (Does Area51 give a release date at all?)

  • Actually while area51 says we are at 89 days, my user profile claims I've visited the site for 91 days... odd

  • @Oak The site launched at 7 PM UTC, while our profiles track from midnight UTC. That's my guess for the discrepancy.

  • That or a glitch in the matrix -- (I woke up today wanted to use that phrase somewhere, this is the best context I found that makes the most sense)
