This site has been active for years, but it's never popular. Most of us (including myself) are programmers on Stack Overflow migrating to here. This site is still a beta. Look at the number of questions generated by chess.com and us! Their message board is flooded with questions. The moderators on this site rarely have anything to do.
Any possibility for us to graduate out from beta? We have very high answer rate, but we don't have enough questions!
My favourite site (https://quant.stackexchange.com) is a site for professional in financial mathematics. There are actually not many people who know how to ask/answer there, nowhere near the number of chess players. But they managed to graduate! They beat us in everything!! Traffic, number of questions, Google search, reputation... Somehow the site was able to attract some of the best financial mathematicians. But ... do we even have a grandmaster? I'm tempted to say the site is a failure (relative to other sites in the network).
