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.

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?

The 1.8m answers is almost definitely wrong. It looks to be a bad query... (or stats being added to a table going slightly wrong) –  ben is uǝq backwards Jan 22 '13 at 8:57
Might be related to this: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/164580/… –  Bart Jan 22 '13 at 9:01
@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 Jan 22 '13 at 9:44
