So, I've been looking at the stats on area51 for Blender Stack Exchange and most of them are looking pretty good... other than questions per day. When the site originally started, there was a pretty steady amount of questions(about 20 per day!). Since then, the stats have been slipping and we've come to a new low of 7 questions per day. We have more users(since we went public), but we haven't had too many more questions. Does anyone know of any websites or social media categories/groups where Blender.SE can be advertised to beginner users?
Most sites will start in private beta with 20-50-ish questions per day (QPD). After private beta ends, the QPD stat normally falls below 5, sometimes as low as 1 or 2. After that it will plateau a while and eventually start rising again.
This is all part a normal beta's growth. Don't upset yourself too much about those numbers on the Area 51 page. They'll improve when the community grows and the best way too gather a larger community is to keep the quality high. Publicity is important, but without quality we won't go anywhere.
