Why is it so that when I scroll down the "Programmers" face web-page I can see (down below) links to almost all the web-pages that belong to "Stack Exchange" except the link to "English"?

(I know I am supposed to ask this question on "meta" instead of here, but in order to do that I have to have 5 points of reputation on "Programmers", which I am most likely a far cry from achieving as I have no expertise to answer any of the serious questions here)

    I don't think a site is linked in the collective footer until it is officially out of beta. – Tim Post Nov 30 '10 at 7:21
  • Aah, I see. Thank you, Tim. – brilliant Nov 30 '10 at 7:41
  • But then, why is Apple (among others) there? It's still in beta, isn't it? – Lizzan Nov 30 '10 at 10:31

Stack Exchange sites that are in beta are segregated from the Stack Exchange community at large: when you're on Programmers.SE–a beta Stack Exchange site—you'll only see sites that are also in beta in the footer.

English.SE is out of beta, so it no longer appears in the beta Stack Exchange footer.

You know a site is out of beta when it has its own theme instead of the "Sketchy" theme.

  • Aaah, I see. Thank You, Mark! – brilliant Nov 30 '10 at 13:07

Sorry, I don't speak English, only Pascal, C++, VB and C# :)

  • You don't even speak Python? :) – brilliant Nov 30 '10 at 7:42
  • I'm a static kind a guy, not very dynamic at all. BTW, I can read Python, but I can't speak it fluently. – SWeko Nov 30 '10 at 7:55
