Here are other "super easy" ways: Just check the site each day for a consecutive 100 days. Ask a relatively simple question that shows that your children have mathematical genius written all over their faces. Answer a relatively simple question which shows that the OP's children have mathematical genius written all over their faces, and be one of the first ...

I do not consider this to be an issue. Mathematics is a Q&A site which just so happens to have an archive. However I use the archive in TeX, for example, more often than I would be willing to admit, and I think that this is where the high traffic is coming from. I think a greater use of the archives of other sites is because it is easier to ask a Linear ...

The easiest way is surely making a post about Batman, it seems.

Given that I collect network-wide statistics for fun (the data from this site alone gives over 700 numbers to play with, and I enjoy playing around with statistics so I collect that and other data on a daily basis), and I've been involved in other SE sites besides this one with very different cultures, I thought I'd contribute my 2 cents. Here's a plot of ...

Having read "Is serverfault doomed?" (From the comments) my experience of late around the authors main point, to vote more is relevant to the discussion. While still relatively new (almost a year) user, I have been offput from answering some questions. Whilst I don't expect $1/3$ of my $(136)$ answers to be bad (via downvoting/commenting), they are neither ...

The easiest way to get a Gold badge is to Vote early, vote often. Vote on 600 questions and you will get yourself a Gold badge, the Electorate Badge. This should take you 600/40=15 days. As a bonus you will get the Civic Duty Silver badge (note: duty!). This is even easier to get: vote 300 times. It is interesting to note, though, that a mere 648 people have ...

Simple suggestion regarding the 4th column, I don't know whether this is appropriate or not, but it is still an idea. It might lower the average post quality, but any significant increase in traffic may have similar results. I think that users of Math.SE represent a huge number of academic institutions world-wide. To attract more users, volunteers could ...

Second 1,2,3. I'd like to try to write blog at my level hopefully will be able to help beginners like myself. Even on blogs from outside directed to mathSE would increase the flow. An idea: add subscribe feature for the site. There are many people I'd like to follow, for example, @40 votes. Others like @Jack Lee, @Matt E, @Ted Shifrin, @Zev Chonoles, @nik ...

Perhaps there should be some badges for "archive management" - for example a gold badge for editing 500 titles of questions which already have an answer and are associated to a particular tag so that they are consistent and helpful and show up easily in appropriate searches. Also retagging the archive for consistency and search ability. [Obviously the ...
