I really worry whether this Q&A site will ever become official as the number of visitors dropped significantly the last two week, from more than 1000 to less than 10 a day. Do other people have this concern as well? What about creating and executing a plan that will increase the number of visitors and to let this Q&A become official eventually?

The drop you are seeing is due to a bug: Traffic (views, visits) isn't correctly registered on Site Analytics or Area 51 so I don't recommend making any decisions based on these stats.

As for being "official": Stack Exchange is moving toward allowing small sites such as this one to have own themes which should put them essentially on par with the rest of the network. The ongoing discussion about removing "beta" label may be resolved by such changes, too.

    Besides the analytics big mentioned before, I am intrigued by the comment made by OP : " What about creating and executing a plan that will increase the number of visitors and to let this Q&A become official eventually?" - what would you have in mind ? – Bruce Becker Nov 5 '18 at 13:10
  • @BruceBecker could you check my answer? What is your opinion on this? – 030 Dec 31 '19 at 21:16
  • Looks like a plan :) – Bruce Becker Jan 7 '20 at 8:57

Our current challenges as a community to get out of beta, are: to increase the number of questions per day and the answer ratio:

Plans


Number of questions per day

In order to increase the number of questions per day we could leave comments at Q&As on StackOverflow and ServerFault that request users to migrate their Q&A to DevOps SE:

According to me your Q&A is more on-topic on DevOps SE. SO and SF are about software and system engineering respectively.


Answer ratio

Every user could try to answer one question a day, even when there is already an answer.
