I think the SE has declined a bit since last year. There appears to be a lot of new users in the community that don't bother following the SE format - they ask questions that have been answered, use answers as they would comments or forum replies and so forth.

I think we could do better with tagging. We have a bunch of poor tags, quite a few tags that are missing descriptions and even when new poster's questions are edited, the tags often are not properly adjusted.
