As far as I am aware, the most recent and most direct comment on the site's health from someone at SE has been Grace Note's answer to an earlier meta question about whether the site could pass beta or should potentially merge with Board and Card Games. In short, her comments largely reflected the information from your graphic above: she indicated that the site overall was in her eyes quite healthy (to the point of recommending against a merger), but that indeed it would need to have significantly greater question volume in order to have a chance to graduate.

In response to that, there has also been some recent meta discussion about how question volume might be increased.

  • +1 Thanks, reviewed Grace's answer, and did a quick review of the recent meta discussion too. Possible that I am missing something, though the issue I see is that it appears neither Grace, nor the meta discussion address how to get people to ask more questions (or why they might not be asking questions); meaning all that appears to have resulted was an awareness of SE's opinion, and users talking about how they can post more questions; neither of which in my opinion long-term will fix the issue. If SE is supposed to be the expert, they need to provide more info on how to fix the issue.
