Following up from my previous question on this subject, I was wondering what our status was.
We've had the public theme for a few months now, so have the site's stats improved enough for a full launch and the removal of "beta" from the site logo?
The official response from Rebecca Chernoff is they're waiting for participation to reach a tipping point. So be thinking about how we can promote the site and how the UX of the Area 51 page can be improved to communicate what really matters.
Update: The SciFi site just launched, putting to rest any doubt about whether the stats on the Area 51 page have anything to do with when (or indeed if) we'll graduate.

Jin mentioned in chat two weeks ago that yes, we'll be graduated from beta soon. I'm curious what "soon" means, but I'm sure the team knows what they're doing ;)
FWIW, we're currently doing around 5000 page views (1.6k visits) a day, with a recent spike to 9k during the week of that rotating cube question. We're also averaging 20 new users a day, with 50 during the spike. We get about 10 new questions a day accompanied by 30 answers.
