I was wondering how long this site has been in beta because I have been a part of it for a year now, also when will it become an "official site" (for want of a better term) like Super User and Stack Exchange? I believe it has a good enough and high enough following for it to be out of Beta by now or am I making a big deal over nothing?

  • Actually, ignore my answer - this question is a duplicate of one of the ones I linked, so I'll close as dupe.

  • If you haven't seen it yet, this page has our beta statistics, including number of days in beta.

We started private beta in April 2011, and public beta in May of that year. Some sites have been in beta much longer than us. And some had to be a bit bigger before they graduated.

As you can see from a couple of other questions on this topic, we are doing well, growth is good, the stats show we are getting to a healthy position, and my hope is that graduation is not far off.

Things you can do to help:

  • publicise the site. To your friends, on music forums etc. If someone asks you a question that could fit on here, ask it and then give them the link so they can check it and any answers out.
  • ask more questions
  • answer questions
