I'd love to see this site exit from the beta phase and becoming a real site. I've read in the meta (just now) that there's a number of 3.3 questions per day in it and that a healthy site would require 15 of them. I'm asking:

how does the meta site calculate this number? Is it the actual, current value for each single day or does it average over a time interval of x days? In this case, what is the value of x? This would affect the result a lot.

The "questions per day" as displayed in area51 are calculated as the average question count since beta launch, or in the last two weeks, whichever is shorter.

In our case we therefore see the average daily question count from the last two weeks.
