The math educators beta has only one more week guaranteed. Over the past 12 weeks, matheducators.SE has done quite well (details), for an overview:

We have a very healthy number of enthusiastic and active users who, along with more transient users, have answered 100% of questions!

However, too few new questions are being asked per day. We are now at 2.9 3.2 questions per day. This is a bit over half the threshold for the "okay" category and well short of the 15 question per day target.


$$ \color{blue}{\textbf{Keep asking questions during this (potentially) final week!}} $$

  • $\begingroup$ I would definitely like to see more questions per day (and quality answers), but I would not like to have the site swamped in questions. I suspect that too many questions per day can mean that individual questions often do not receive sufficient attention (cf. Mathematics Stack Exchange). I suppose it's about finding the right balance of quantity and quality. $\endgroup$ – J W Jun 7 '14 at 6:16

This comes up from time to time, but we don't close down sites at the end of the 90 days and we certainly wouldn't do that just for low question rates. That isn't to say we don't want more questions (we do). Rather we want people to continue to ask good, answerable questions. Shortly, you should be getting an opportunity to self-evaluate a sample of questions from the site. That should help us narrow down on what to focus on next.
