This topic comes up from time to time. I am wonder now that since it has been over a year: How can we rate ourselves as a site now? A current snapshot of Area51 stats is below:
Our number of questions appears to be trending up which is better. Used to be hovering over 1 which was sad. We seem to be lacking in high rep users arguably though we have a fair number but it has not changed much in the last several months. Chat has not been doing well but I don't think that is a metric that matters much in the end.
Are we doing OK? Are we at risk of being shut down at all? I try to ask as many questions as I can but I am losing inspiration. I don't want this place to fail and if there is something we could be doing to step it up a notch I would love to help. Perhaps more ads? Maybe Graphus could ask a question just one time!
