I'd like to get feedback from the community, about what people think our goals are, or what goals our users would like this community to have?
There's no wrong answers here, and an answer such as "we should have no goals" is also perfectly fine.
I do think that various people here will have different opinions about how they want to see this site grow though. Having a clear idea of what the community wants, can help us so much in terms of deciding where to focus our energy, and also in terms of deciding policies (such as when a question needs to be closed, etc.).
A long time ago Stack Exchange suggested these goals which they no longer endorse so strongly anymore. Do we want to grow from our current 12,401 users to something like computational science which is at 28,000+ users? Or do we want to focus more on bringing in highly regarded experts, such as MathOverflow which has at least 10 Fields Medalists?
Do we want to work towards "graduation" (which admittedly is not what they call it anymore) out of Public Beta (meaning that, for example, we as a community get to choose our own ads rather than them being chosen by our sponsor)?
What do we want this community to be, and what do we want it to look like 10 years from now?
