I have read How long does a SE site stay in Beta?, and several other relevant threads, but these articles do not explain the following use cases [all stats excellent unless otherwise specified]:
5.9 Q / day (5 = OK, 10 = good) 100% answered 903/89/60 high-rep users 2.4 answer ratio (1=OK, 2.5=good) 10452 visits/day Not launched after 6 years.
So I thought,
Wow, launching sites much have some huge requirements!
Law: 9.4 Q/Day (5 = OK, 10 = good) 77% Answered (80%=OK, 90%=good) 163/15/10 users with high rep 1.5 answer ratio (1=OK, 2.5=good) 1820 visits / day Launched at 90 days.
Obviously, launched with stats a bit worse than the law site. I thought,
Maybe the advantage is, that it had these stats at 90 days?
Another example, Quantitative Finance
7.1 Q/day [5=OK, 10=good] 77% answered [80%=OK, 90%=good] 505/34/23 high-rep users 1.8 answer ratio [1=OK, 2.5=good] 6350 visits / day Launched after 6 years
After looking at numerous resources, and trying several theories, I still cannot explain. How is this site better than the German Language, that it got to launch? Who decides?
