There has been updated guidance on how to support a successful Private Beta (see here), and we are given 3-4 weeks in Private Beta before a decision is made on whether or not the site will move onto the Public Beta stage. Everything starts anew with this Private Beta site (including reputation points), so it inevitably takes time to create a snowball with sufficient mass to keep moving. I am trying to evaluate if our site is healthy or not, but I haven't been able to find guidance on the following question:
For the metrics provided on the Area51 proposal page (see image above), are these suggested benchmarks for success applicable to the Private or the Public Beta stage? Specifically, is a site expected to reach >500 visits per day and have those number of Avid Users?
