Visualizing the impact of US politics megaposts on the blue

The biggest change in the way that mefites participate on the blue in years has been the rise of US politics megathreads. We have had several discussions of the qualitative impact of them, but it occurred to me that it might be useful to dig into the infodump and see what quantitative picture might emerge. I think my findings are worth sharing - while a quantitative analysis on its own can't tell us whether the megathreads are a good thing or not, there are several negative trends regarding community engagement and participation that are happening in close concurrency with the rise of the megathreads.

I'm assuming this got lost in the Great Server Disaster of 2009, but is the Infodump ever coming back?

Post, comments and user number charts

Here are two charts about metafilter. Posts and user numbers and comments and user numbers. Each dot represents a post (or comment), with the post number and number of the user who posted (or commented) as the xy data. I don't remember what prompted me to make these (some metatalk thread, I'm sure), but I found them again on my hard drive and thought someone else might find them interesting (I brought them back up to date, too). There are half a dozen interesting little milestones that show up in the graphs, more than I could see probably.
