What is the Infodump? Does Mefi release other data for study?
is Mefi's regularly-updated published collection of site statistics. It includes a great deal of information about posts, comments, tags, categories, favorites, and user behavior concerning all of those. The Infodumpster
was created and is run by user Combustible Edison Lighthouse. It is a convenient way to run searches on the information from the Infodump.
Mefi has also released the MetaFilter Corpus
, a collection of linguistic information which can be used to find things out about how language is used on the site, and how that use has evolved over time.
