Proposal: Healthcare IT

It looks like Healthcare IT is just missing the commitment score component of it's threshold for moving toward the beta phase. While of course the answer for part of this is for people to go post on other sites, become big-deal posters and thus have a higher personal commitment score, the proposal has been in this phase for more than a year. Is it time for folks to un/recommit to see if purging any decayed scores might move us a little closer? Did this actually have a meaningful impact for the Theoretical Physics site, or was that mostly just speculation?

  • I received an email from Stack Exchange today with a reminder that the Healthcare IT site is almost ready to go beta. Perhaps that will also motivate some people to recommit. Sep 30 '11 at 21:34

Well I just tried (I had committed a while back) and it went from 275 committed (90%) to 274 (90%) for about a minute and then back to 275 (91%). So it appears to have an effect. I possibly answered questions slightly differently last time (am I a professional), though I don't believe so.

  • @Arjan The commitment decay is quite slow. According to post linked from the score box the aging "is very gradual: something like 10% over 6 months". I would guess that your commit score had not decayed a significant amount.

  • I just tried this and had almost the same effect as dr jimbob - dropped overall commitment by a point, then restored it when I recommitted. Oct 3 '11 at 21:41
