Today, the SE team updated the criteria for when they "would close or graduate a Q&A site":
- When a site starts to consistently receive 10 questions/day, we’ll consider it for graduation.
- If a public beta site does not produce consistently helpful content, and lacks the caretakers needed for flags and spam to get handled and our Be Nice policy to be upheld, it will be closed.
And from the comments, to the question if there is a minimum age:
there isn't a hard date when a site suddenly becomes eligible, but we are thinking roughly a year at least, maybe a little less. The 90 day graduation is truly a thing of the past.
We fulfil all the easily measurable requirements:
- We get more than 10 questions per day (currently 12.3)
- We are older than a year (currently 482 days in beta)
And for the more subjective ones, from my point of view:
I think we do "produce consistently helpful content", but it’s hard(er) to measure this for us, as unanswered questions are not necessarily a sign of lacking user/expert involvement.
I think we have great caretakers: off-topic questions get closed (and spam questions deleted) quickly, questions that should be improved get constructive feedback in the comments, low-quality answers get comments/deleted, the review queues (and, I assume, flags, too) are under control.
So I’d assume that the CMs should consider us for graduation now.
