Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Recently the "questions" metric on Area 51 for beta sites was replaced by a "questions per day" metric. However, the number does not appear to be calculated correctly - dividing the number of questions on a site with the number of days the site has been in beta does not produce the number listed on Area 51.

This could very well be intentional (closed questions not counting, rolling average, etc) but as it stands it's not very clear where the number is coming from.

It's the average number of questions per day over the last two weeks. We should probably put that in the tooltip...
