@waxeagle all i was trying to say about that tag. i'm going to further specify this in my meta question so it's clear that my intent is to reasonably scope tags...not rid tags due to ignorance or other superficial reasons.

@edmastermind29 cool

@JacobJanTuinstra depends on the badge, some notify some don't

12:33 PM
@waxeagle Ok

@JacobJanTuinstra which badge did you get?

12:55 PM
@waxeagle I thought every badge would get notified...just the easy ones...

ah ok, yeah the n00b badges don't notify :)

Anybody notice the questions for day count on Area51 fluctuate from 1.1 to 2? If I'm not mistaken, taking total # of questions divided by # of days in beta, or 776/488 = ~1.6.

@edmastermind29 it's a median

user46190
@waxeagle i figured because it would go up and down.

@edmastermind29 yeah, your mod analytics page has a 7 day average function if you want to see how that is moving (though you're not allowed to share that here)

user46190
@waxeagle ahh. why a median instead of a mean? i thought the mean would be a more accurate description of said stat.

@edmastermind29 no. A mean can be more affected by a single good day whereas a median gives a picture of overall health. Because it equally weights your good days and bad days

@waxeagle so, if we have a 40 question day...the mean would be more affected than the median? i'm thinking in terms of average vs. middle number...and both would increase in said scenario. so, who's smarter than a 5th grader? lol

@edmastermind29 yes, exactly that.
{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14} has a median value of 7.5 and a mean of 7.5 but
{1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,2,3,3,3,3,12} has a median value of 2 and a mean of 2.14.

user46190
@waxeagle right. so, the outliers would not contribute to an accurate presentation of what actually takes place on a typical day.

@edmastermind29 yup
overall stats are looking pretty good.

user46190
@waxeagle agreed. all things considered...its the suggested question count for an SE site, but with what we got, I'm pleased. The past few days have been good question days imo...minus the bad eggs...but still good nonetheless.

2:05 PM
@edmastermind29 yeah, and SE is pretty realistic about that question count. They know even 5/day isn't a real expectation for some sites
The big thing is getting users with sufficient reputation to actually be able to do something when we graduate. And for that we need a healthier voting culture. And more questions

user46190
@waxeagle for the most part, votes are being used within their intended purpose...from what i can see. other cases are questionable...like this. The OP asked for rules, and the answer was "video proof" and it got 5 upvotes....

my fear is that we're >1 year in and no one is close to 10k yet. That doesn't bode well for graduation in anything approaching the near term.

@waxeagle i have a few more golf questions brewing...thanks to our equipment/technique talk yesterday...

user46190
@waxeagle that's from a number of things. low question count....low answer count....user contribution.

@edmastermind29 cool. I've got a few more disc golf Qs as well though I'm not sure we have the communtity for it yet. I need to go practice more :)
@edmastermind29 yes. And there is no concentration of expertise here either.

@waxeagle that's a biggie.

3:21 PM
Gonna make a more concerted effort to use my votes in the next couple of weeks. We've got a lot of good questions and especially answers that aren't getting the upvotes they deserve.
