As well as reaching a personal landmark, it's also a site landmark when I became the 25th member to hit 25k reputation yesterday (narrowly beaten to the line by two others - you know who you are).

I believe that's a great sign that this site is in fine health, and bodes well for the future. It's interesting to reflect back a few years to see how we were doing as a Beta site and see how far we have come - that description feels like a different universe!

Let's all raise a (virtual) glass to the continued success of Code Review!

Congratultions, Toby. Perhaps now is a good time to dig up some metrics on the site activity and progress. I built these SEDE queries a while ago, and running them again is a good thing.

First up, is a badge-ranking query. Code Review ranks as 21 out of 173 Stack Exchange sites in this query. I consider this to be a pretty good indicator of how well "populated" this site is compared to others. For example, we have more participation than many other, more high-profile sites like Apple, Programmers, StackOverflowEs and StackOverflowJa

Next is my long-time activity chart: Site Activity and Vote Graph ... which indicates a bit of a dip over the past 3 years:

Site Activity

Running the same query over back to 2013 is more interesting:

In general, the site is doing well, but is "settling" in terms of activity.

Maybe seeing some of the charts will inspire others as well.... it is inspiring me to answer more, I think!
