Today, Leap Day, marks the 90th day ES.SO has been in beta. It already meets the threshold of 10qpd (questions per day). Should it be graduated?

    I'll ask the community team to weigh in here, but the short version is... "questions per day isn't a hard threshold that immediately flips the site over to graduated".

    Also Chemistry spent some 3 years in beta. If I were you I wouldn't think about graduation for another year or two. As Andrew and Downgoat demonstrated, this is somehow the norm. The exact criteria for graduation may never be revealed, since the beta should strive to grow, not to game the stats.

  • Surely. The non-english SO sites are the largest and most fast growing ones on the whole network. It is a terrible mistake from the SE Inc that they essentially outlawed them.
