I remember reading somewhere on Meta (not sure which site), that the question rate should (I know there may be exceptions) be steadily above a certain threshold (Area51 lists 10+). Basing myself on data from the site-analytics (5K+ rep), this year we had 34 days during which 10 or more questions were asked and 63 days with fewer than 10 questions asked. ...

At present, it seems that graduation is broken There hasn't really been a comprehensive solution regarding how this would work juggling ~173 sites, much less deciding which sites would be eligible and when/how it actually gets done. So efforts to handle each request one site at a time have been caught up in indecision, confusion, and a growing back log… ...

A healthy site generates lots of good content to make sure users keep ...

It seems unlikely to me that any site will be graduated from beta until some general process is decided on. That said, I agree with you that this site exceeds the standards that have been used to ...

Measurable numbers aside, I personally think that this website is not yet ready to leave the beta status. There are still some problems which need to be solved and meta-questions which need to be answered. Among those are: How can we train people to vote based on quality, not on ideology? There are still too many bad questions and answers on this website ...

Is it enough to improve answered KPI (currently 90%) to get it out of beta phase? (and keep other KPIs at "Excellent") I don't think that we should try to improve that stat at the expense of other things. First, I don't think that 89.7% or whatever is too low. Second, I think that the unanswered questions that we have is a result of more of a lack of ...
