Back in August our top user asked how do we step off this plateau? Now here we are, six weeks later:
- 68 days in beta
- 0.6 questions/day
- views/day hovering around 50
This is not good. They probably aren't going to shut us down just yet (c.f. Beer.SE, now at 8 months in beta and rather quiet), but this is not a promising start to what ought to be, and could be, an excellent site.
Back in August it was asked if we should change our name because the current name is somewhat misleading. (And, anecdotally, we sometimes get confused visitors to our chat room thinking this is a site for and about SE moderators, so I think there's truth to that concern.) A proposal to change our name to either Community Building or Communities got strong support but has not received any response from Stack Exchange.
A name change alone isn't enough, of course, but it's a factor. So my questions:
Can we please get some movement on the name issue -- either a change or an explanation about why it won't be changed and why that really isn't the problem many of us think it is?
What else can we do to grow this site? (Yes, "ask questions" and "promote", and people are doing that, but obviously it's not enough yet.)
