- What happened to Startups SE? 4 answers
Startup Stack Exchange had 4.9 questions per day during it's BETA period and was declined the opportunity to turn into a full StackExchange site, but the Role Playing Stack Exchange had only 3.4 questions per day and was approved.
All of the other metrics for both seem to have came up as Excellent.
Why was the role playing site approved, but the Startup site declined?
