Along the lines of "Third excellent...", we now have no more "needs work" categories, having just bumped over the 5 questions/day mark. This is more of an announcement than a question, so it can be removed later if necessary.

    we dropped below 5 again ... I think it is going to take another week or so (hope I am not being too optimistic) before our questions per day says as okay.

  • Unfortunately yes. I will note that with over 1000 questions, there are only 11 "unanswered" questions, which is really very good.

  • Is it some software error? 1050 q/260 days in beta only makes 4 q/day...

  • @Shyam - I think the value is a rolling mean, but I'm not sure for what period. For visitors per day, it's the rolling 2-week median.

Congrats to all on reaching this nice milestone! (and there's no need to be modest: a lot of SE sites in beta have a hard time maintaining a steady stream of questions after the initial excitement)

Being a newcomer, if I may take this opportunity to give my main impression for my first month here: by increasing our userbase more we will be able to cover more fields of research… and this diversity will bring even more value to the site. Academia is a broad church!

A related reminder (yes, I saw someone say “more like nagging”): we have proposed an ad to run on our sibling Stack Exchange sites, but they need our votes to run. If you have an account on the following SE sites, please go up vote the ad:

PS: the ad itself is a graphics I created with Daniel’s advice… but I am in no way emotionally attached to it, so please consider improving on it or proposing a better design in the relevant meta discussion.


Thanks for posting, good job to everyone who's participated and made this site as good as it is.
