If you're been reading the Stack Overflow blog recently, you might have noticed that Area 51 now has more pronounced (traffic light colour-coded) indicators about how the beta sites are doing.
Here's what it looks like for Apple SE:
We're on pace to have 0 users with 3000+ rep after 90 days of beta, which would mean that the userbase (apart from moderators) couldn't even close questions by voting.
Fortunately, there's a remedy for this (apart from just somehow attracting more new users): actively upvote any good questions and answers you see. Or like Jeff Atwood blogged 3 days ago, Vote Early, Vote Often.
Of course we could be doing better in other areas too. So, for one thing, don't hesitate to ask even basic Apple questions (that isn't on the site yet), even if it's something easily googlable. And I guess we need more promotion too, to reach a bit bigger share of the world's Apple-using masses.
Not really a question. :-) Just something active users should probably be aware of.
