After successfully exporting all stories and comments from the dot from its launch until the day before yesterday to xml (to have a basis for test-imports on other machines), I can give you a few interesting statistics:
Since the dot started, 2815 stories were submitted. 586 never made it to the front list (because they were spam, double posts or reposts). On those remaining stories, a total of 95562 comments have been posted, an average of about 43 comments per post. Pretty impressive numbers, huh?
Oh, the flatforty seems broken, did you notice?
Doesn’t look like it’s getting fixed anytime soon. It’s down for nearly a week now. =(
