I'm Grace Note, a Community Manager at Stack Exchange. And one of these days I'll get to make an announcement for you guys as a question rather than an answer. Statistically, this site's doing great. We're very happy with what we're seeing. The volume's doing decently, the breadth of coverage is also nice, and most of all the community here is doing ...

I have been with 3 sites from private to public (and very active in 2 of them (one being the most active non-mod review queue processor, the other being a protem moderator)). Our quality, number of questions and number of answers are all very good for a private beta. No question the public beta will be very soon.

The falling-out isn't between the main site and Area 51, but rather between Google and Stack Exchange. Anna Lear, an SE developer, tweeted about a Google API change two days ago. That's when the moderator tools for viewing traffic reports stopped working. (These are still broken as of this writing.) Why is some part of this chain reporting 20M visits? ...

Apparently we haven't, quite yet. The count in SEDE is correct (as of its last refresh). I asked about the discrepancy on Meta.SE and learned that not all ID numbers are actually used. We're close to 100k but not quite there yet. I'm confident we'll remedy that before too long.

What is the relationship between views and upvotes? For a question X-axis is views, y-axis is net votes. The linear relationship in the graph is actually kind of amazing. See that outlier to the right? If you take the outlier out, the slope changes by less than 0.03%. That is pretty unusual. Overall, you get one upvote (on the question) per every 250 ...

What users generated the most discussion? I summed the total number of comments and answers and divided by the number of posts. Obviously, comments can get cleaned up by the mods, so perhaps not a representative sample. All users (sitewide average: 3.5) Lysero: 65 XenoDwarf: 53 JNW: 47 Sebastian Araneda: 47 Myself: 44 Occasional users (>10 posts in 2017) ...

if you go back to the Area51 and look at the world building, it give you a sort of score card. http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/63276/worldbuilding We're not doing to bad according to that.

Once we have established at least pro tempore moderators, this becomes much less necessary. While analytics data is intended only for moderators, and as such cannot be shared in detail with the community at large, moderators do have access specifically to such statistics as number of page views, visitors, posts, referrer statistics, new user counts, etc. ...

This was the result of Google deprecating the login method we were using to get analytics. We've updating all the analytics code and it's pulling again.

Users who made the best use of their words? I summed the number of net votes and divided by characters, then multiplied by 100. The result is net votes per 100 characters of question or answer. All users (sitewide average: 0.4) Eric Duminil: 23.5 MooseBoys: 21.7 Alex Hintermann: 21.6 Mara: 15.9 user43066: 15.4 Occasional users (>10 posts in 2017) Terry: ...

Users who had the highest percentage of their answers accepted? The number of accepted answers divided by total answers; for questions posted in 2017, not answers. Query here.

I do not believe the statistics you're asking about are available. All the server knows is when you clicked "post answer" and when you submitted it; everything that happens in that textbox between those two times is client-side. The server can't tell the difference between spending an hour composing an answer and opening the post, going to lunch, and ...

I'd have phrased this differently, since people's frequency or degree of participation can vary significantly, even if shy of formal account deletion. For what it's worth, I'm spending less time here, because IMHO, the StackExchange format, plus the inconsistently-defined criteria for hold and closure, isn't really helping me build my worlds very well. I'...
