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What's more amazing, this data is well out of date - it's almost 14,000 projects (over 12,400 Instructables, the rest are slideshows and videos).

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?

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.

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?
