Until the day we graduated (16 December) we had a small table with site statistics on the home page. This has always been a feature specific to beta sites, so it was removed after we graduated. In my last screenshot of the site statistics, the data looked as follows:

Site Stats
questions 5,124
answers 5,561
answered 78%
users 10,068
visitors/day 4,229

(Apparently, it is not possible to create a table without a header row, hence "Site Stats" in the first row.)

The Area51 page provided some more data, such as questions per day and the answers per questions ratio, but those data are now frozen.

Even though our site has graduated, I would still like to have some data to help track the "health" of our site. Bringing back the home page statistics would allow that. It would not require the introduction of a new feature; restoring what was there for more than four years would be sufficient.

What do other people think about bringing back the home page site statistics?

  • Even if we'd like it, can we get it?

  • @Randal'Thor Since it would only require re-enabling a feature that the site had for several years, I don't see a technical reason why we couldn't.

  • The information is readily available at stackexchange.com/sites so do we need to clutter the home page with it?

  • @Chenmunka The numbers your refer to are strongly rounded. I really prefer the ones we had on the homepage.

  • They are rounded, granted. Point taken.
