Ten Thousand Instructables! Answered

I don't know if anyone else noticed, but sometime yesterday the ten thousandth Instructable was contributed to the site. Congratulations to everyone who has contributed to the site and helped create such a vibrant and growing community!



Omg your icon!!! I luv gir!!! Ps look down 3 comments

Now about 14,000 instructables!

Where can I see how many Instructables we have?

I remember that someone posted a somewhat useless instructable at just the right time in order to have the 3,000th instructable.

What's more amazing, this data is well out of date - it's almost 14,000 projects (over 12,400 Instructables, the rest are slideshows and videos).

that's awesome, do you know how many members there are that have contributed?

Not a clue!

It's a lot, though - most members have well under a hundred projects. I have 70, so if they are all as prolific as me, that's only 200 active contributors.

However, it's probably nearer 10 times that number - maybe if any admin are passing, they could check the database to find out exactly how many people have posted projects on the site?

As of now, there are about 9900 instructables -- soo close!

as strongbad would say, "HOLY CRAP!"

Yeah, and we're almost up to 11,000 already. I just checked and the total is currently at 10,988.

so that's 1000 new projects in exactly 30 days. wow! that internet is quite something.


And I proudly contributed 8 of 'em

Cool - there were about 3000 when I joined.

That's amazing, when you consider that most of the projects are actually rather good, and there are very few repeats.

There was some data on the blog (checks) - in the top 50 project posters last year, none had reached three digits in the number of 'ibles they created. Trebuchet03 was top with 72 (it must be higher now) (Reference)

Yoinks! How about updating those lists, then? Or providing a button that links to a continuously-updating list?

Features like that are on the way.

the statistics for those lists are in some cases fairly misleading since they only include projects entered in 2007 (ie - not including stuff *before* 2007). in some cases you have to think a bit to understand what the data is really saying and what is omitted.

Theres About 1000 knex instructables...... I have nothing against knex, but the instructables for them are in the way.

That is awesome! Nice job everyone!

Sweet, the only problem is that as we grow that large it's going to be harder and harder to sort and store all this information, I wonder if that why the servers had trouble before?
