What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

Is there a Stackoverflow web service available to grab the amount of question asked?

I dont want to srape the page as this probably is forbidden.

I want to write a program to simple monitor the count so i can be the 3 millionth question!

What an honor that would be :)

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Questions about the site (and/or site complex) should be on the meta site. What an honor to spam the system and steal the rightful question out from a legitimate 3 millionth poster's nose... – Marc B Apr 19 '12 at 19:23
You assume that my question is not worthy? – HarHaHu Apr 19 '12 at 19:24
Why was this migrated to meta? It's obviously a programming question! – larsmans Apr 19 '12 at 19:29
Fine, i'll have to settle for 3,000,001 – HarHaHu Apr 19 '12 at 19:40
No one will even know yours is the 3,000,000th question. The number in the URL uses a post ID number which just recently passed 10,000,000. – animuson Apr 19 '12 at 19:47
Can you please, in the future, capitalize I? When you ask questions here, or on SO, it's like going to a formal dinner. Not proofing your questions is like showing up in shorts that have a broken fly, with no underwear. – Tim Post Apr 19 '12 at 19:53
@larsmans its like a service request not a programing question. – Ankit Sharma Apr 20 '12 at 6:28
Tim, ill try and be more careful next time! :) – HarHaHu Apr 20 '12 at 13:49
