Has anyone noticed this? We may not have more members (151789 vs. 358315), but we certainly have more posts (3409891 vs. 3377308). And when it comes to topics (184378 vs. 59902), BitcoinTalk leads by a large margin.

I realize our numbers may be a bit more inflated thanks to the more lax moderation here, though. Since XKCD's forums are older than ours, they should have more posts per member... but it's the opposite. And I think we have a bunch more topics because we don't have anti-duplication rules (i.e. someone is allowed to start new threads for already-discussed topics rather than continuing the old thread). Nevertheless, it's an important milestone!

There's 600000 threads in Mining, which translates to about 500000 threads complaining about BFL, so to be realistic, you'd have to count all of those as 1.

That's what I like about BitcoinTalk's lack of antiduplication laws: you can figure out public sentiment just by counting how many threads there are on the same topic Cheesy.

I like physical analogies to virtual things, so here's one. If we printed all of BitcoinTalk on paper, at a rate of 10 posts per page, there would be a stack of 341 thousand pages. At 0.1 mm per sheet, a stack of paper with BitcoinTalk posts on it would measure over 34 metres. This is higher than the Victoria Memorial Building in Ottawa, Canada!
