There was a bug in the algorithm that calculates IsAnswered. That field is used to calculate the % answered value. The bug is now gone as of two days ago: I've updated the query to check for nulls on the IsAnswered field - this will be deployed in the next build (rev 2014.6.16.1659, meta rev 2014.6.16.2312). The query runs on a daily schedule, so may be a ...

With a rep of 25k+, you could check the site statistics. As that's not a real answer to you, there's always the Stack Exchange Data Explorer: stats for our site can be found here. Especially for your topic, the following query should be interesting: Total Questions and Answers per Month for the last 12 Total Questions and Answers per Month, 3/2015-2/2016 (...

One thing I've noticed is that many questions that should be asked on Software Recommendations SE are instead asked on the Superuser SE. For many of these questions, no one flags them to indicate that they belong on the Software Recommendations SE. Furthermore, when I have flagged questions on other SE sites, the Software Recommendations SE is missing from ...

IMHO this has two reasons: software developers (Stack Overflow) and system administrators (SuperUser) might have very special needs - and the required program simply does not exist there is no migration path (yet). We should make sure that SR appears here on SO: I personally would flag questions like that, which in turn would train SO users. I didn't ask ...

I think it lies (partially) in the low votes / work ratio. (Please note that I don't have direct data for that, just my personal observation) So, I see part of the problem not in getting people here, but in keeping them here. Good answers on SR.SE tend to be longer and take more work then good answers on sites like SO. But on the other hand, the quality ...

Definitely not, as the site statistics for Software Recommendations on Area51 show: 59% answered on average, 1.9 answers per question But admitted, there are a lot of questions without answers: 2,633 questions 1,088 without answer Not every question is answerable, and not every request has a fitting solution. To give an extrem example (not a real ...

As the same visitor can visit the site multiple times, sure those are different things. But how 0 visitors manage to visite 3,402 times a day, you'll have to ask a magician – unless that's supposed to mean "there was no visitor accessing this site 3,402 times a day – everybody who visited had different numbers". Then it makes sense again :) So I'd say: It's ...

"Android web browser without internet permission" would clearly stay unanswered, as it's a contradiction in terms." Shouldn't there be at least one answer here explaining the contradiction? And why such an application is not likely to ever be produced. The question shows a lack of understanding by the person asking it, but the community can provide a ...

To answer the question in your title, we're not running low on visitors: That's new visitors per week. What we are running low on is software itself. I've addressed this before in a somewhat related question: In my view, the reason this number is low compared to other sites is that we want very specific questions - and sometimes (often!) software simply ...

In Stack Exchange jargon, “answered” usually means having an accepted answer or an answer with a positive score. The idea is that if there are answers but they don't have more upvotes than downvotes and none is accepted, then those answers haven't proved their worth. You can improve this statistic by browsing the unanswered questions, answering them, and ...

I would advise to make your question titles a bit more self-explaining. Look at a few of your titles: Local “Sandbox” Browser Local 'Instagram' for parenthood iOS Web Application While these titles might sound clear to you, I did not have any idea what they meant before reading the full question. That's true for most of the questions you listed above, ...

It's always helpful (and encouraged!) if folks can suggest ways to improve an author's posts; but that aside… Your questions are not receiving unusually low view counts relative to this site. This site often has low view counts on many posts, so low participation rates just seem endemic to this site. In reality, your posts seem to be about on par ...
