I suppose nobody failed to notice the current question deluge; or the dearth that went before it. In case you have, here are numbers:
Average number of questions per week
4 weeks 4 weeks 4 weeks 4 weeks Current week Weeks Dec 29-Jan 25 Jan 26-Feb 22 Feb 23-Mar 21 Mar 22-April 18 April 19-25 Questions 12.25 8.25 8.25 6.0 23
Or if you visit Area 51 from time to time you will have noticed that the average number of questions per day reached a low of 0.8 a week ago and now stands at 2.1. Of course this is all very welcome, but does anyone have an explanation for it? I want to believe it's not just a random spike. After all we had basically as many questions this week as in the previous four weeks combined; and more questions than in any other week since the first week of September. And this after twelve absolutely dismal weeks.
I don't know what may have caused this sudden change. Perhaps someone has been working behind the scenes, and the site has become more visible? The number of visits to the site is at an all time high too, but not that much higher than in the previous weeks. It has been climbing gradually over time. So, any ideas?
