I was running out of space in the comments, so I'm just moving this to a full blown answer. According to the magic Moderator portal, we should be around 2,350 in visits per day. Also, my post was a little over a year and half ago. To elaborate on my original post that @Greenonline attributed and reiterate the points: Accept Answers I have mentioned the ...

This post, 3D Printing SE Beta Status, by tbm0115 highlights the three main sticking points (IMHO clearer than the Area 51 page): Questions per day Users vs Reputation Visits per day Once those reach the required levels then that should be it. So, there is quite a way to go... The stats can be seen here, 3D Printing Area51 site: Stats progress Note: Only ...

Your "vote" is one of the key things. As Jon Ericson pointed out to Mechanics.SE before we graduated and were asking the same question asked here, he stated: ... voting is the engine that drives the reputation economy. I think Mech had a little different scenario than does 3D Printing, but it still holds true. If you want people to show up and do things,...

This should be fixed. Let me know if you have any additional issues!

Let's stay with the classic $. Example: \$\$\frac{1 \times 2}{2} = 1\$\$ Now that MathJax is enabled, it renders to: $$\frac{1 \times 2}{2} = 1$$

$$\text{3D Printing Stack Exchange} \subset \text{Stack Exchange sites that use MathJax}$$ There are ~17 posts that could use an edit. Most of those are prices that have been converted into MathJax. You can fix that by escaping the dollar sign: $ => \$ I'll work on those edits myself, but I'd love to get some help.

MathJax would be really helpful: We recently discussed How is infill generated via slicing? and the answer is linear algebra. Displaying linear algebra without formulas is a PITA.

imho that could be a post-processing category/tag.

It actually seems like a user from 3D Printing SE - @markshancock - has asked this exact question over at the general Meta. (Nice work, @markshancock!) As pointed out by Jason Cs answer, it basically seems like we have to make a case why we need it to the SE moderation team, so that they can decide whether to activate it or not. In general, I think ...

From a traffic standpoint, people are more likely to stay on our site if they do not have to jump over to YouTube or any other video page to get the answer they're looking for from a video. As mentioned in the question, there are already a few use-cases for such a feature and I don't think it would hurt the visual appeal to the questions/answers. However, ...

One thing that I noticed about the stats for this site when I first came across it was how high the number of registered users and visits is, compared with the number of active users and questions. For some time, I felt the site had either picked up some bad stats, or was in the final stages of fading away. I think things are a little more normal now though....

Yes, I think on this site it would be useful - but we need to be fairly aggressive about closing questions that don't have a fully readable 'text' question. The video must only be for clarification, not as a replacement for writing a question.

Per answer to What are the limitations in Beta "Inline videos is a feature that is off by default on all sites and only turned on if the community thinks it's necessary to improve the quality of a good portion of their question base."

I created the correct tag and synonym until we have someone that can fix this. I assumed that this would be an okay alternative since we do not have anyone, currently, that can fix these types of issues. If this is not a valid placeholder, please provide a comment/answer for a better alternative.
