We were well beyond the required 1000 questions to graduate, when the 58 other sites graduated out of Beta recently. The announcement by Stack Exchange said "we allowed the communities to stay in Beta if they didn’t feel ready to leave that state yet". Does that mean that the diamond moderators of Cardano.SE told SE that we didn't feel we were ready?
That's totally okay if you did, but I'm just wondering if that happened, or if they just missed us because we weren't (yet) at 1000 questions at the time that they checked.
I believe this is the batch of the websites that were selected before, at the time we did not have 1k questions.
Edit: We will have to request it now.
Now, thanks to one of the amazing engineers on our Public Platform
team (Adam Lear, take your bow), the CMs have a tool to allow us to do
this without a developer. So in the future, if a site is eligible and
ready to leave Beta, we can process those requests ad-hoc and in a
more timely manner.
No, we simply did not meet other graduation requirements.
In determining what sites were ready to graduate, we factored in site age (being in Public Beta for at least six months), having at least 1K open questions, and at least 70% of open questions having at least one upvoted answer. Sites needed to meet all three of these criteria in order to lose the Beta label. Based on these criteria, Cardano isn't ready to leave Public Beta yet.
Marek Mahut identified that we were just 50 questions short.
