This was inspired by Should we widen the scope of our site? And if yes, how? - where most popular answer to widenings was: No.
I think that getting to 10 new question per day in current scope of the site will be extremely hard, because questions about methods of learning a language are very different from questions while learning any particular language:
When learning a language, you have question/answer - it is like getting a fish. And sure, people need a new fish every day. So on healthy site, 10 fish a day is a reasonable metrics.
Answer on LL is more like getting a fishing boat - a method you can apply multiple times, day after day.
After doing my research on past questions on LL, I learned a lot, and it will take me a long time to digest it and put what I learned to use: I have a whole flotilla of fishing boats now, I am fishing (applying the answers while learning my current target language) and do not have urgent need to find more learning methods.
Another growth-limiting factor is inherent geekiness. Most people do not learn a second language, few will decide to learn one, and go to the site for that language. Only very few will be concerned about methods of learning a language.
I am fine if LL will stay in beta forever. I am concerned that it could be killed by higher powers if our "new questions per day" metrics does not fit some arbitrary criteria, which might be OK for more "down-to-earth" sites (like any language), but not a good fit for niche site concerned methods of solving problems, not just answers about how to solve a particular problem.
So my question is:
Do higher powers understand that LL is more "meta" (LL is about fishing boats, not about daily fish) than traditional site about learning any particular language, and will give us some slack, even if we do not get to 10 questions per day?
Or should we be worried that LL can be closed as under-performing? Because I do not expect we can ever get daily 10 new questions (not previously answered) about methods of learning languages.
And if we live under such danger of closing, we need to think about enhancing the scope, to get bigger community and more questions.
