I guess we did. Congratulations everyone! How I know we did is I went to https://space.stackexchange.com/ in incognito with chrome and the site completely loads. Also we now have the ability to share answers and questions, (the share button is now visible)

The rule of thumb to graduate a site, in the partial graduation, seems to be about 10 questions/day for a consistent period of time. According to the Area 51 statistics, we have about 5.5 questions per day at the moment. We are well on our way to graduation, but we aren't there yet. I can also tell you that there's pretty much no chance this site is ...

Traffic numbers are the least important, especially this early, of the stats. There is still a good number of questions coming, and traffic will build up with time, it just takes a while, that's all. I don't think this site is in any danger for the time being. If you are worried, just make sure to ask good questions, give good answers, and upvote stuff. ...

We are in public beta. And our stats are steadily improving, however we will not know a graduation date until SE informs us. The process allows for "partial" graduation once site stats indicate we are in a healthy position, so we can have elections etc, with an updated design/CSS etc coming along later.

Good news Sites are allowed to remain in public beta indefinitely as long as they make steady progress. In the rare cases when sites have been closed, it's been because the number of people participating has dwindled away. That's certainly not the case for this site. That said, now might be a good time to tell your friends (or anyone who might be ...

It has certainly been chatted about with increasing frequency in The Pod Bay. To track our progress on all the metrics used to determine when we graduate, you can look at Stacker, a site created by one of our Stack Overflow brethren, Eric. What is needed now is a sustained average of 10 questions a day. 'Sustained' doesn't have an exact definition, probably ...

The scope is fine, we get literally incredible numbers of questions, answers, i.e. anything else when compared to the number of daily visits of our website. Going against the definition of our scope now, that we've somewhat successfully defined it and might only need smaller refinements over the course of time would be counterproductive. We have established ...

As you will see from this question on Meta.SO: A site is generally in Private Beta for 7 days. However, some sites have remained in Private Beta for a little longer in order to allow the committers enough time to actually build up enough good content to move to Public Beta. and Anna Lear's comment: We review each site on a case-by-case basis, and we ...

In addition to @TildalWave's answer, let me add a bit. There is at least one time that we have clearly added to the original scope, including planetary sciences. There are relatively few questions on that subject yet, but that would be a good area to start increasing the number of questions, bringing in new people. While our visit count is low in general, ...

I will say we are exactly 3.6 questions per day away from graduation at the moment :) It has happened before that a site has graduated with only 'OK' in some categories, but not in the traffic categories as far as I can see. In that matter, "visits per day" (here we have the 'Excellent' rating), and "questions per day" are the most important ones. Go ahead ...

As can be seen from the Area 51 page, there are a lot of sites over 90 days old, in fact, the oldest are over 1000 days. That said, how do we stand so far? First of all, I'm not a SE employee. That said, I'd say that this site is so far on a good path to sticking around for a while, I don't see it being closed anytime soon. We do need to keep up questions ...
