It's going to take time to meet the rep requirements. We are moving in the right direction everyday though, should we keep urging everyone who committed (in the commitment stage) to meet 200+ rep because, unless I'm wrong, that's part of what they agreed to do.
(can someone help me find and verify this to be the case?)
We receive 25~ points each time one of our referrals meets commitment. I know because I just received some points from referring Eric Lamb though, he is at 400 now so, again, I'm not sure exactly what the commitment consisted of or if there was a delay on me getting my points.
Anyway, here are the requirements for rep and where we currently stand:
- 150 users with 200+ rep (currently 41 users with 200+ rep)
- 10 users with 2,000+ rep (currently 0 users with 2,000+ rep)
- 5 users with 3,000+ rep (currently 0 users with 3,000+ rep)
You can see all the requirements here by the way.
If you see the very last one on the list (blue boxes), the traffic stats, you will notice that we are about 1/5 of where we should be (where's math when I need it?)
Now, I realize the beta just went public (2 days ago in fact). I also realize the stats will pick up a bit once Google starts hitting all the newly generated content and people start finding this site while searching for help etc. though, this is the one I'm most "worried" about meeting at this point in time.
I think rep will be a walk in the park because we are such a passionate group and will power through the rep requirements like everything else we've done up until this point. The traffic requirement, well, I'm not so sure based on being a smaller more tight-knit group without the sheer mass of other communities.
Should we sit back hoping these things will all just iron themselves out?
Or should we keep up the momentum we've gained and continue with the push, power right out of beta and then relax after launch?
What's your thoughts on meeting rep and traffic requirements?
