The answers to this question are to be used to create temporary chat topics until the chat rooms get sorted out later on.

@dimension10 could you suggest another way we can chat on topics here, until the chat rooms are made available?

Physicsoverflow Public Beta

Thanks, to upvote you need some points now in public beta, as described here

Xiao-Gang Wen, Nathaniel, JeffDror, Greg Graviton, and a number of other people,.       

On the first 24 hours of public beta, there have been 12 registrations of new users and an unknown number of users, that have regained their account. The site has been visited 240 times.

@polarkernel Wow, that's quite good! TP.SE got an average of just 199 visits per day, despite being part of a huge network. 

@physicsnewbie You can see (2) for yourself. It is ridiculous to claim that our long-term stats will look like our current stats. We've just started like a week ago. The stats will improve in some time, and it is obvious that they will boom once the reviews section is up.

@physicsnewbie It's not a rough indication either.  

@dimension10 For the sort of roughness I'm interested in, yes. It will tell me how fast the trend is upwards or downwards, and from that I can extrapolate to how the site will be doing compared to MO over the future.
