I've said it before, and I'll say it again now: the best thing we can possibly do for our site is to ask questions. Why, you ask? Let me explain. Asking well written, on-topic questions consistently over a long period of time can get us much closer to hitting that necessary 10 questions/day marker, and thus, much closer to graduation. increase the chance ...

This is a difficult question. The site has competition from language-specific StackExchange sites (German Language, Chinese Language, English Language Learners, etc.), many websites and blogs about language learning (see the small sample here), other communities that focus on language learning, e.g. Fluentli, other communities that focus on language ...

Keep in mind: "If there's enough moderation for a public beta site to consistently remain free of spam, for flags to be cleared, and for our Code of Conduct 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." ...

I see several things we can do now: Increase our answer ratio, which has consistently been at 2.0 instead of 2.5. With the current number of questions, that would required adding around 400 answers. Promote our site. There is no lack of site promotion ideas; it's a matter of finding time to put these ideas into action. (Note to self: finish that YouTube ...

Should we also have a quarterly best answer award? Why not? It would inspire people to actually try (or try harder) to make the best answers. If yes, do we start after the third quarter or do we start an award now for the second quarter? Let's wait for the third quarter. I think it's too sudden to start this before knowing exactly what is the criteria ...

I'd also like to add a few more key points here. Voting is basically how we as a community decide what's good, bad, or borderline within our community. Especially with a site like this, voting becomes essential. To quote Robert Cartaino: I am pleasantly surprised just how "on topic" this site has been able to remain. My concern was that this site could ...
