Why do new subjects need a certain number of "high activity days" to graduate?
Subjects in beta have two community goals they must reach in order to graduate to official Socratic subjects:
- 20 featured answers
- 20 high activity days
A high activity day is attained when at least 8 people contribute to that subject in a day.
The reason for this goal: in order for a Socratic subject to help the most students and have the widest reach, it needs a strong community of contributors who participate regularly.
Anyone can contribute answers during beta, so if a mix of subject founders and enthusiasts write answers every day, the subject can reach its high activity days goal quickly!
You can track a new subject's progress towards graduation on its beta page.
Want to do your part to help a new subject graduate? Contribute just one answer or edit on every day you can, helping make that day a high activity day.
