A couple guidelines for the site have been discussed, and on some of them there seems to be a consensus. Would it be beneficial to push some of the undecided ones through prior to going into public beta, as to leave a better impression on new users? It would also set a nice example of how to phrase questions/answers.
I'm thinking of " How should references to journal articles be provided? " in particular.
A big downside is we don't have that many meta users yet, so it wouldn't be very democratic to decide on these topics already.
