Let's lighten the mood. It's towards the end of the week and I want to hear about something not related to politics. It's 2019 and we just went up another number. This has me thinking about numbers in general. Tell me about a number that is significant to you. Maybe it's a number that always shows up in your life, or it's a number that is lucky, or you just like the number because of the way it looks or sounds. It could even be a fact about a number you learned on this site. Let's dig deep and talk about numbers.

Users with numbers in their names.

I've found lately that I conflate three different users in my mind, because all their usernames start wih a number. I know it's not you guys -- it's a problem with my brain, and that you are all individuals -- I think -- but nonetheless. It got me wondering. Are all the numerals one through nine represented?

Most responses to a post ... ?

I really started something yesterday, and it's got me curious - do we know what the greatest number of comments ever made on a MetaFilter topic is?

RSS bug-a-boos

1. Deleted MetaTalk threads still show up in RSS (example)
2. MetaTalk RSS includes titles for threads, but the actual thread only uses the post number for a title. Discuss.

979 new questions and 15866 comments

"There have been 979 new questions and 15866 comments posted since your last visit." I'm pretty sure this is an error, I've only been gone for a few weeks.

Here's a little bookmarklet that tells you the average user age contibuting to the thread.

So I keep noticing thousands of new usernames in comment threads (which is awesome), and I got to wondering about how user age/contribution patterns were evolving on a threadwise level with the new users settling in. Being a non-statistician, I didn't care enough to perform a serious study, so I just threw together a little bookmarklet that tells you the average user age contributing to the page. It's totally worthless, but a bit of fun.

I don't know about you, but I'm curious

I don't know about you, but I'm curious. The membercount has been hovering at 14000 for the last week (?) or so, and just this evening went to 14001. Strange that the profile for user 14001 says "member since: March 15, 2002." Is there an interesting story here, or do I just need another hobby?

Signups closed, members grow

The membership number keeps going up, yet I thought the site was closed off. What am I missing?
