Birthday week: A little something for the number-crunchers

In keeping with our birthday tradition, let’s take a look at the numbers behind the site. We’d like to start with the big numbers: In the past year, we have almost doubled our total registered users to 4.46 million. And the number of wikis? 1.8 million — again, almost twice last birthday’s number. Wow!

And if those numbers aren’t big enough for you, since March of 2009, we’ve had 642 million pageviews and nearly 72 million unique visitors. In the past month alone, we’ve had more than 74 million pageviews and nearly 8.8 million visitors. Honestly, we just can’t get used to numbers like that, they’re so big.

Not all that long ago, it was a banner day if we hit 100,000 edits. But now, that’s what we call “Tuesday.” We were excited, though, when we hit 144,354 edits in one day on March 2. And between 10 and 11 a.m. on February 23, we had 11,597 edits in a single hour, beating out the previous year’s best by more than 25%.

Or, without the editorializing:

March 2010 March 2009
All-Time Registered Members 4,468,404 2,244,700
All-Time Wikis 1,804,063 905,127
Pageviews 642,412,469 381,589,973
Unique Visitors 71,808,285 40,079,863
30 Day Pageviews 74,673,090 51,486,418
30 Day Unique Visitors 8,804,730 7,396,158

But we can’t take the credit: It’s because you are working so hard, building wikis that make people excited to participate. So thank you, everyone. We can’t wait to see what the next five years will bring.
