Ahhh...Beer, a lot of people love to enjoy it but as far as participating on the site, we're struggling. Beer.SE is averaging a bleak 0.1 questions a day. While we have a great percentage of questions being answered, at 97%, the lack of activity is concerning.
There are a few active users but the overall userbase seems to be lacking enthusiasm to keep things running. I'd like to direct you to this recent post about when we graduate sites, and when we shut them down. Specifically:
What does this mean? If there's enough moderation for a public beta site to consistently remain free of spam, for flags to be cleared, and for our Be Nice policy to be upheld, your site will remain open. However, if community leaders drop off, flags sit without being addressed, and we can’t find any suitable volunteers to step forward, the site gets closed.
Very recently, Xander agreed to step up and help out with the moderation duties, but we need other active users if we want to keep this site running. The site has been free of spam, flags are slowly being cleared, but there are items sitting the review queues waiting for users to help out.
What can we do to engage the users of the community and rally Beer lovers to participate?
