Then how long will it last and if it ends (talking about the beta) would we have to wait a couple of days until it officially launches

It could be like a Google beta and last for years. Gmail is still in beta.

Would post counts/Accounts carry over to the full site?

Either way hopefully it will be a seamless transition to the full site.

Odd, this doesn't feel like a beta. The site seems fully functional. It just loads slow, probably due to traffic. But if this is just the beta, then the full site launch will probably have more surprises.

Although this is a beta it really doesnt feel like it. However I must say, they need a better way to put pictures in forum posts and make the site a bit faster..3

I'm pretty sure Jeff said, that once the beta is over we secure our names and profiles and it is transitioned over to the official launch. So don't worry.

I notice that I can change my username at will at this time. But once it's secured, does that mean it's locked and we can't change them anymore?

I know what you are thinking about. That edit button beside your name is not for changing your username it is more of a facebook function. Like how do you feel, or what are you doing right now. Go ahead and enter a sentence, like "I went to get a sandwich." And hit submit, refresh the page and now that is what you are doing/feeling/etc... :D

Yeah I'm glad everything is moving over to the new site.  At least I won't have to stay up half the night just to secure my user name again.

My guess is a week or so. I think they just wanted an estimate of the amount of traffic and submissions so they can get an idea of where they need to improve.

I see. I just saw the edit button and thought that was for editing your username. Well, I guess that feature is cool too. I'll fiddle with it.

Guessing is silly. The site will launch out of beta when it is ready.

I would guess around a week or so. Hopefully what Jeff said about keeping our usernames, etc is true.
