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

I have downloaded the data dump torrents

I have a folder called 012011 Web Applications (it has comments.xml, badges.xml, posts.xml, users.xml, votes.xml) and the database I created is called Stack Exchange. What tables should I create in this database? Should create one that is called Web Applications.Badges, WebApplications.Posts.. etc..etc?

I am just confused on the formatting issues.
