Today I encountered the site self-evaluation evenmt. When I clicked on it the review site opened and I had to evaluate several questions. However this thing lacked some explanation. So what is the reason for this evaluation? Where can I see the result and what happens with the result?

  • @Seth Looks like another "announcement" by SE after it has been deployed. Saw this on UL earlier on as well. Can't believe this. – gertvdijk Feb 8 '13 at 20:59
  • We do these regularly, what's the problem? – Jorge Castro Feb 9 '13 at 1:49

    @JorgeCastro To me, the current one-line explanation is very confusing and makes me think this is a bug of some sort. The only thing I come up with were in-beta phase SE sites to do this. Any additional explanation why we need this...? – gertvdijk Feb 9 '13 at 10:52
  • It's a good indicator to find out how users of the site consider the overall quality of the answers. – Jorge Castro Feb 9 '13 at 14:41
  • @gertvdijk: No, this was already in place. meta.stackexchange.com/questions/161390/… . And mods can see when the next eval is in their dash (though I agree that we should have gotten a warning first, since this was happening for the first time on graduated sites). However, I don't see the harm of starting this on graduated sites before announcing it (AFAICT it was automatic). – Manishearth Feb 11 '13 at 5:20
