Submitting solutions to the site for feedback is a core part of exercism. It's a well-used part of the exercism experience, and I hardly think we can call it beta any more. Time to remove the Beta™ branding? 🎉

Just a suggestion. Feel free to discuss! 😄

If beta is just license to continue not to have a CHANGELOG or stable API, then I say we can just do that anyway. I worry that some users will shy away from using beta things, lest it be buggy or whatever. Maybe that's unfounded, but that's what my gut tells me.

I put beta on that as a way to help manage expectations: a lot of people don't get feedback at all.

The whole site is actually still technically beta because the feature set and API are not stable, but I'm OK with ditching the word "beta" and just changing things anyway.

I'm going to go ahead and leave it for now. I suspect that we'll launch the new site without the "beta". Meanwhile, if you change your mind, feel free to reopen this and make an argument. I'm open to changing my mind :)
