The way Stack Exchange works is that when a beta site is close to coming out of beta, Stack Exchange staff will develop the final look and feel of the site with the help of the community and the protem moderators who are helping to guide it. That is why we have questions such as What should the theme and layout look like? here on meta.

Answers to this question can make suggestions about the look and feel of the site, suggest logos, discuss options and generally thrash out a design.

You are more than welcome to post some ideas there and comment on the ideas already generated.

As it is, we are some way away from getting out of beta. We probably need to triple our visits per day, double our number of regular active users and most of all we need to regularly generate many more high quality Robotics questions. Few graduated sites (those out of beta) generate less than 5 questions a day, so that is our most important statistic to improve.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for pointing out the meta question. I would like the community to grow, too. By the way, I thought the concept of a robot for two years, and now I start to implement that. So from me there will raise many questions in the next weeks. Cheers. $\endgroup$

Futher to Mark's answer, while I don't put too much effort into following the stats, the one that bugs me a bit is:

committed users
274 users committed
77% signed up for beta
6.9% fulfilled commitment

287 users followed
49.8% signed up for beta

Only 6.9% fulfilled their commitment!!

    $\begingroup$ This is fairly typical. There is at least one launched site with a single digit fulfilled commitment stat and there are many beta sites much older than Robotics with similarly poor conversion. $\endgroup$
