I just wish to express and share some of my concerns. Below a bullet list with here and there a link to an example case.
- Question views are generally awkwardly low: between 10 and 30;
- Even seemingly good questions are left unanswered;
- Low quality questions are not being commented on, or even downvoted without mod intervention;
- Great answers receive no more than 3 upvotes, OK answers sometimes 1 or even less;
- Answers with less than 2 upvotes do not even make it into the Area51 stats and questions are listed as being unanswered in that case (bad for site stats overall);
- I get the impression there are less than 10 active users at this time;
- There are often less than 5 people handling the review queues;
- Moderators are visiting less, and hence voting less;
In all, I am concerned that we are not surviving according to SE's standards. I am putting a lot (too much) of my time in this site, which kind of jeopardizes my mod duties over at Bio. I am considering taking a few steps back over here and that may further aggravate matters stated above. Of course I will continue modding actively, handing flags and so forth, but I may take a few steps back in sifting through all the posts, upvoting good stuff, and answering questions, as I am not convinced it is helping this site much. Anyway, apart from that -
Are we beyond help?
