# 272 days in Beta - What's next?

As scheduled 3 months after the previous report...

Nothing much to comment really, the dive in questions is only natural for this period of the year, while visits (I remind that it is a median, not an average) remain steady, while participation and usage grows.

Just one thing : it drives me really crazy that for all this period of nine months, every single time I measured average daily rate of new subscriptions, they were always around $7-8$/day. I don't remember seeing such steady metric in any new venture in my whole life. And yes, it is not a steady growth rate, but it is steady in levels, which points towards a CARA rather than a CRRA framework.

I will return for the tables, where I will show quarterly data from now on.

• Although it may not be surprising that there are fewer questions at this time of year, the reduction to 3.6 per day is from a previous quarter's level of 5.7 per day that was itself well below the suggested healthy level of 10 per day. Are we still perhaps at a stage where it would be helpful to post questions that we consider would provide and/or stimulate good content - even if they are not questions we would have posted simply to obtain answers? – Adam Bailey Aug 18 '15 at 10:22
• @AdamBailey Yes, this is a good policy. As for the dive in questions and the distance to 10/day, if the site bounces back come Autumn to 5-6 questions/day, then I would not necessarily expect to see a quick rise to 10/day. In any case, the beta performance has been very good so far, compared to other sites that started off approximately around the same time as economics.se – Alecos Papadopoulos Aug 18 '15 at 11:30
