Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

stackexchange.com currently lists

1.1 million users 5.3 million questions 1.8 million answers

I thought this have been much more earlier, and I checked it through http://web.archive.org/web/20121209091909/http://stackexchange.com/:

2.6 million users 5 million questions 9.6 million answers

What happened to all the users and answers?

@Bart thanks for the link, meanwhile both statistics show reasonable numbers again. If you like, phrase a quick answer (temporary glitch, no need to report immediately etc.) according to your comments in the other answer, and I will happily accept it. – Andreas Fester Jan 22 '13 at 9:44
