Out of curiosity (or work deadline avoidance), anyone know why the MetaFilter entry on Wikipedia suddenly get a lot more "readership" or views than normal for the five days of January 5th to 9th
inclusive, then suddenly go back down to the previous background level? [more inside]

Of all the data that is collected on MetaFilter users, what does it average out to? Who is the everymefite?

Question (and I may have missed where this is): Metafilter is a geeky place - out of a certain curiosity, is there somewhere to get an OS/browser/whatnot stats breakdown for visitors? If not, that would be cool (even if merely in the form of a one-off FPP).

For the upcoming meetups, or more exactly for press and blog coverage of upcoming meetups, could PB or Cortex or somebody gin up a kind of graph or visualization of brute quantities of user signups over time, along with user numbers? [more inside]

Is there any data on AskMe responses? This post
generated a remarkable 115 (and counting) replies. What's the record?

Is there an alphabetical list of MeFi usernames anywhere? I have a vague recollection of a username I'm trying to recall and I know what letter it started with, but I'm stuck there. This wouldn't be hard to compile, it would just take a numerical increment and a simple web scraper. Just wondering if anyone's ever done it. Thanks! [more inside]

I'm an avid reader of Puke & Cry's Deleted Thread
blog, and it got me wondering: Do any of the admins have stats on the most posts deleted in one day? Or, the most doubles (i.e. the most posts on one
topic that were deleted - I'm guessing it must be an obituary post, maybe James Brown)? Or, the longest time span without a deletion? Etc.

When was the last time we had a Mefi survey? Given the growing number of members, it would be interesting to learn how the demographics have changed (or stayed the same).

Would MetaFilter consider sharing detailed Public Traffic Stats?
This appears to be the strong trend among the top Technoratti Blogs - and SEO blogs.
It would be fascinating to view and discusse where new users are coming from.
What post attract search engine traffic & keywords
What geo-locations are sending viewers during a given time
In previous years there were very general stats showing growth - But something more intriguing could be considered

Matt, can I have a pony for Christmas? Nothing too fancy, just some public statistics. Boingboing
, for example, uses AWStats
, which provides a delicious smörgåsbord of information. It doesn't sound too difficult to use, I've set up similar things on sites of my own.

I read Crunchland
's tips on FPPs but I was wondering if there were any statistics on quantity of replies to day of week/time of day. When are the surges? I'm guessing Thursday or Friday mid-afternoon.

Some metrics: 50,000 posts and 1.24 million comments since July 14, 1999 = 20.5 posts per day or almost one post per hour, 511 comments per day or about 1 comment every three minutes for the last 6.75 years

I think that in the profile pages, the answer count for Ask MetaFilter should exclude the user's own comments in their own questions.

Speaking of User Numbers, what happened to the population count on the front page? How are we supposed to know where we stand if we don't know how many others are shoehorned into this tiny webspace?

I've noticed a lot of threads asking how many "real" members there are. Would it be difficult to add a counter to the front page that says something like: "There are currently x# users logged in"?

Just how international
It seems to me all the other well-known and popular American and European community weblogs and websites are far more parochial and North America-centred than MetaFilter
. Not so with us. This makes, I think, all the difference
. We have (off the top of my head and as far as I know) members from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, England, France, Holland, india, Ireland, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, The Philippines, Portugal, Scotland, Wales, Spain...and who knows what other countries?
So just how widely cast is the MetaFilter users' web?[Lurkers: Please break your vow of silence, just this once, if you possibly can!
] Me, I suspect it spans the whole beautiful Planet...

I assume the server keeps error logs. So, is there any way to edit the error message itself so that it displays how many times it's happened? The idea is that hopefully, common sense will kick in when it shows that it's happened 150 times or something and we don't end up flooding Matt's mailbox when obviously just a few notes will do.

are online. Traffic dropped only slightly from September's unbelievable growth, and the jump in user signups
was minimal compared to the previous month. Days from September and October dominate the top 20

I hope this doesn't come off as pompous or anything, I just wanted to show everyone the metafilter stats for November
. A few things to note: the times are in GMT, so they're 8 hours behind the real time (there isn't a 9am lull in requests, that's actually a 1am lull, PST). I started keeping track of bytes transferred about half way through the month, so the data transfers are off. 330,000 page views is pretty wacky though. As usual, the search requests are mostly disturbing. I don't want to meet most of the people doing those searches.

When you start a new topic, there could be a checkmark for the option to put a small counter on the bottom of the comments page for your link.
