These numbers are already a bit outdated (the Archive grows just that fast), but we wanted to share our record-breaking (get it? get it?) numbers from last week before heading for our next milestones:
On Monday, we welcomed our 160,000th user, shortly followed by the 700,000th work uploaded to the Archive. On the weekend, we watched the official fandom count break the 12,000 mark.
The same weekend, we had our busiest Sunday yet, with 5,250,000 page views. The whole week saw a new record traffic of 32,600,000 page views total. This means that in any given minute, 3,000-5,000 pages (works, tag lists, user profiles, custom search results…) are simultaneously assembled for users all over the world, on servers entirely paid for by fandom, and by code written and maintained entirely by unpaid volunteers.
Thank you for making this possible!
