I was browsing some questions on Anime & Manga (AM).
Just out of curiosity, I am wondering if it is possible for a normal user to find out the total number of questions on AM now?

I am sorry for the silly question if it violates the rules here.

Thank you.

  • I've always wondered - does this account for deleted questions as well? Jun 24, 2017 at 8:29
  • @Gallifreyan i don't believe so since deleted questions usually don't appear on the site (with some exceptions such as the front page not being updated or in mod tools). the number may be a few hundred off just from the deleted ID Requests if we want to count deleted questions.

  • @Gallifreyan It does not. To get the total number of questions ever posted on this site, you can use SEDE: data.stackexchange.com/anime/query/688101. 3153 of our deleted questions (about 58%) are [identification-request] questions.

  • @senshin also if i recall correctly SEDE don't use live data as such it may be out of date depending on when you run it

    @Memor-X SEDE gets a fresh extract each week, so it's never more than 7 days out of date. You can see when the last update was if you go here: data.stackexchange.com/help#faq. (FWIW, I got the number "3153" by using my magical diamond moderator powers to use the site's search feature to find deleted posts, so that figure is up-to-date.)
