I've looked at some of the statistics for SFSE contributions for this year (based on whatever normal members can see) and it looks like it has been an amazing year for our community as a whole. Can the moderators publish some stats at the end of this month in terms of

  • Count of New members added through the year (YoY growth)
  • Ratio of questions answered/ posted
  • Top Questions & answers for the year
  • Number of badges given out through the year
  • Overall edits, flags count for the year

P.S. - It's a good time to reflect on the year gone by. For those interested in reading, I took some time to reflect on my year 2015 as a member of the Salesforce developer community

I decided to dig into the database a bit to get a few more stats as requested and because I was also curious.

    @NormalHuman I'm putting it to Meta.SE to offer suggestions about what sites would want for annual stats. Good idea. – Taryn Dec 28 '15 at 20:58
  • Hoping this triggers the change for for all sites to transition from the retired evaluations to these queries. Thank you once again! – Gaurav Kheterpal Dec 30 '15 at 4:19

There is the Site Analytics privilege at 25,000 rep. Those with access can see it at https://salesforce.stackexchange.com/site-analytics.

Here are the weekly stats for the year to date for two of the available areas.

There is also the StackExchange Data Explorer. With that you could probably find the exact answers you are looking for.

I came across the existing Yearly stats query that has some further interesting stats.

  • Daniel - thank you for sharing the stats. The Data Explorer and the charts are handy and provide a good overview for what I was looking for. As for the Site Analytics privileges (25K points), I'm not there yet but I'll definitely make sure I get there soon enough so I can look at the next year 2016 stats! Cheers! – Gaurav Kheterpal Dec 27 '15 at 14:01
  • Awesome, thank you! – Sergej Utko Jan 13 '16 at 8:08
