Questions per day 15 questions per day on average is a healthy beta, 5 questions or fewer per day is worrying. A healthy site generates lots of good content to make sure users keep coming back.
We have 3.2, RPG has 4.5, both below the worry line. Sum is 7.7, still little more then half the "healty" value, but at least over the red line.
Users Every site needs a solid group of core users to assist in moderating the site. We recommend:
- 150 users with 200+ rep
- 10 users with 2,000+ rep
- 5 users with 3,000+ rep
We are slightly below the line, RPG is over it — though I suppose many users frequent both sites.
Visits/day: 1,500 visits per day is good, 500 visits per day is worrying. A great site benefits people outside the community. Eventually, 90% of a site's traffic should come from search engines.
We are at a worrying 358, while RPG is better at 764. Combined that would make 1122, which is still below the "good", but more than double over the worry line.
Now, I know that RPGs and Boardgames are two different things, but the audience is vastly the same, and while different they are quite related.
I'd rather have two separate sites, but if we risk one (or both!) not making out of beta, I'd say merge them if that would help them survive.
Sure, RPG is flooded with D&D questions, which I personally find totally uninteresting, but that's beside the point. I guess.
