Key to Site Status Tags

Site Status Key: the site status prefix usually is either alpha or beta, two industry standard labels to indicate major site in-development status. RC or rc may appear as well.  I use pre-beta in a few cases.

The prefix is followed by -1, -2, -3… -n which are version numbers.  The suffix version numbers are used below to mean the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. day (or week) I, JGW, have worked on this site.

More generally:

  • The alpha prefix tag = ugly site, confusing to normals and not ready for real people (normals) to use.
  • The beta prefix tag = ready for computer and web site competent people to test-use the site.
  • rc-1, rc-2, etc. = release candidate site, tested, probably needing 1-2 minor cosmetic improvements to the site, and almost ready to be the live site.

Key to Color codes and additional Letter Abbreviations used in some tables of test sites:

  • Site names shown in a plain-green or dark-green color exist as sub-domains of this site.  When shown on any web pages on this site, they are links to those active sub-domain sites. Those target web sites are therefore works-in-progress, in-development, or for LIVE sites, working site with real end-users using them and submitting more content to them.  Click on the name to go to the site.  Site names in dark-green are receiving more active attention and development.
  • Site names shown in black do not yet exist but are planned.
  • or, this site, hosted on, a web hosting provider.
  • stub” means no-content as in: there is no meaningful content for the prospective site-owner or campaign. There may be place-holder home-pages and user groups, however.
