# When is peak time for this website?

Is this information available anywhere? If it's not, should it be available or should it not?

Sometimes I want to ask a question, but I am afraid that not many users are active in the moment. And by the time peak time arrives, my question will get buried and never answered.

It would be even better if we could access peak times for different tags.

• An old discussion about SO peak hours. It seems around 16 GMT is (was) the best to ask a question. Though that answer is around 8 years old :P – kingW3 Sep 1 '17 at 17:53
• In a relative sense most questions and answers come in during UTC 16 to 21, that is daytime in the US. But it's just a factor of two between the most and the least busy hour, and it's not even clear what's better. So I would not worry too much about it. – quid Sep 1 '17 at 18:00
• This seems related: Best time to ask a question. (Maybe also some other posts linke there.) On meta.SE: What is the best time to ask questions? You can also see when users post in chat, which is perhaps also a rough approximation for the main site. – Martin Sleziak Sep 1 '17 at 18:15
• Thank you all for the info. – Ovi Sep 1 '17 at 18:15
• Re: It would be even better if we could access peak times for different tags. Have a look at: Depending on the tag is there a possibility to know on which days and hours are there more answers? – Martin Sleziak Sep 1 '17 at 18:16
• My guess would be Sunday nights, or Monday nights in the case of holidays like Labor Day. You know, because of homework. – Robert Soupe Sep 5 '17 at 5:29
• Seriously, though, I would be more concerned with making sure my question has all the relevant tags and no irrelevant tags (one of the relevant tags is sure to get more attention than the others, but irrelevant tags might bring a bad kind of attention). – Robert Soupe Sep 5 '17 at 5:29

• Views per question $\ne$ activity, since people can view questions long after they've been posted. – Simply Beautiful Art Sep 1 '17 at 22:56
