Membership uptick thanks to R*****'s troubles?

Have the recent troubles at another social media site led to an uptick in our own membership as folks ragequit / rageadd other sites to their browsing experience? Have folks been welcoming new members? What do the new members think about the site? Have they learned to avoid the searing light of the professional white background?

Find me AskMes about gently and efficiently getting kids out of the next, please

I promise that I Googled and searched with the on-site engine, but I just can't find things I know for sure are there - namely, AskMe questions about getting young adult children to gain independence. [more inside]

Metafilter Stats: March 2009

By request, I updated my Metafilter Stats for the first time in two years. User growth, Top 20 lists, and daily stats are all current, as of last week. [more inside]

Ahh, Metafilter...

How many people sign up per day?

My friend and I were discussing MeFi and came to a point of contention when estimating the number of new users MeFi receives per day. My guess was 5 to 10, his was 25 or more. Perhaps this argument can be laid to rest here. How many new users does MeFi average per day?

Why has MetaFilter traffic spiked so fast?

Does anyone know why MeFi has almost doubled its reach during the past 2 weeks? Just curious.

Have we become too big to have a meaningful conversation anymore

489 comments, 207 comments, 139 comments, 129 comments, and on, and on. . . . Have we become too big to have a meaningful conversation anymore? Who can read and process 489 comments and then make a meaningful contribution? Are we becoming just like Slashdot and Fark, where only the heartiest of souls have the energy to follow the multi-hundred comment threads?

Have signups opened again?

Welcome to ascullion, a member since May 1, 2003. Did I miss something? When did new users signups begin again? Only asking because I've got a couple of online buddies who would be interested.

Registration is better closed

Okay. I asked it in a thread, and only got one response. My question for the masses (without an agenda) is this....we've obtained about 1500+ new users in the last 4-6 weeks. When do we start talking about turning sign-ups off again?

They're up, and they're crazy: MetaFilter statistics

Metafilter stats are up, and they're crazy. We've never seen growth like this in a single month. Users, threads and comments all increased dramatically on 9/11 and every day since.

MeTa needs to catch its breath

MetaTalk of late has been living as accelerated an existence as the Mothership has. With complaints, controversies and crises coming in every few hours, it increasingly seems to me that MeTa needs to catch its breath. More inside.

Growth brings DEATH

So many comments

200 posts in 8 hours (150 in the first 3)? My, how time flies when you're having fun.

Is this the future of MeFi? An explosion of comments so overwhelming conversation is useless?

Matt thinks there are too many posts

yikes, Matt. what do you mean MetaFilter's filling up (note on the front page at the top right)?

#3000 (was a long time ago)

Speaking of MeFi's growth, I spy upon logging in tonight that there are 2,997 members. Will there be some sort of swank party to celebrate the joining of #3,000 or will the lucky so-and-so just get a year's supply of Turtle Wax and a copy of "MetaFilter: The Home(page) Game"?

I wanted to see how Metafilter has grown since its launch

I wanted to see how Metafilter has grown since its launch, so I crawled the archives for thread/comment totals for every day since July 1999. Then, I wrote a script to plot all the data in line graphs and tables. Click on the links to drill down.

It's interesting to see how quickly the commenting community have grown. At this rate, Matt will have to build thread-within-thread support to handle the sheer number of comments.

2000 members and counting!

november 13, 2000, 4:10pm: 2005 members

I just want to say wow, and congratulations, matt.

so far, I must say (napster/nader/election mania notwithstanding) I think metafilter is scaling beautifully. well done.
