I'm a community manager here at Stack Exchange, and part of our jobs here on the Community team is to periodically review sites in beta to see how they're progressing. Part of this involves encouraging periodic self-reflection, and part of it involves just looking at the site: the questions being answered, meta activity, traffic numbers, active users, etc.
It shouldn't surprise anyone reading this that, while there is a core group of members here, there are not very many - and the daily traffic and number of questions being asked does not indicate there will be many more any time soon. Those of you who are here are doing a fine job, but with only about half a dozen people with more than 500 reputation on the site regularly, there's a real danger that quality could head downhill in a hurry.
One concern we have to address is in moderation: one of the Pro Tempore moderators has all-but stopped visiting the site. Moderation is a volunteer activity and moderators are free to come and go as they please, but on such a small site, moderation is particularly important when there are so few people who can perform any kind of housecleaning. We definitely don't want a lack of leadership to mark the end of the Poker site, so I need someone to step up and volunteer to help out in that area.
When we launched this site into beta, there was some concern that it was unnecessary given the game was already on-topic on Board & Card Games; you've surpassed the traffic on that particular tag, but that's not saying much - and on a dedicated site, you miss out on the review and moderation support that comes with being a part of a larger community.
To be clear: we don't need to shut this site down right now. But I have to say, the writing is on the wall, and if y'all do want to keep doing this, I'd like to hear that and - more importantly - hear why: is Poker.SE doing anything to fill a niche in the poker-playing community, is it in any way "making The Internet better"?
...and if so, how can we avoid this turning into a complete ghost town?
