I’ve noticed a growing obsession with numbers on Raspberry Pi these past few months. The thing is, watching stats isn’t your job. Your job is to create the very best body of Raspberry Pi knowledge on the internet, one high quality question and answer at a time.
This site has a lot going for it. If you keep up like you have been, I’m confident you’ll be graduating soon enough. However, trying to game the numbers is counterproductive. Don’t do it.
The drive to graduate makes sense, but a single minded obsession with numbers leads a community to take their focus off of quality. As long as the content on Raspberry Pi is making the internet a better place, we’re okay with letting it take as long as it takes. This is why we’ve begun to approach the beta period as though a site might be there for quite awhile, and that’s completely fine.
The community team is not obsessing over Raspberry Pi’s numbers. Neither should you.
