According to the Area 51 stats for Ethereum, we seem to be doing fine on all stats except those related to number of users. I came here as a result of an announcement on /r/ethereum about a month back. Would it be time for another recruitment campaign? If so, what would be sources of good candidates?
Edit, nevermind, we just entered public beta!
I don't have the feeling we have an issue with (missing) users yet. This is actually an advantage during the private part of the beta stage.
Now we have to focus on:
- 10 high quality questions per day, to keep content coming
- 3 high quality answers per question, to keep the answer rate above 2.5 (count: 25 answers per day)
- all the votes you can spend per day, to ensure enough users recieve reputation
- organize questions in well defined tags and wikis, to save a lot of work later
The user base and page hits per day will come as soon as we transit into the public beta phase and google will yield the good content we generated during the private beta.
There's also probably a way to ping users who "committed"?
From sidebar of http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/89704/ethereum
