Comment: C: Is The Biostar Fading? (Updated For 2014)
... Alright, I got it now. Saturation was not a good choice of wording. I meant that the votes level on a "voting score" plateau at some point. Whilst the score is unrestricted (so, no saturation can be achieved), I think it cannot be assumed that the downslope in voting scores will always look like it ...

Comment: C: Is The Biostar Fading? (Updated For 2014)
... I see your point about the saturation. What is your opinion on the (roughly) constant number of answer/comment postings, but increasing number of questions being asked (plot "User Activity")? ...

Comment: C: Is The Biostar Fading? (Updated For 2014)
... Thanks for the clarification, Michael. For that very reason, I have included the other charts in my blog post and spent much less emphasis on the charts that I used in the last years. Quality was not the primary focus of this year's blog post. ...

Comment: C: Is The Biostar Fading? (Updated For 2014)
... Thanks for pointing out the connection between the URIs. Removing posts will not improve the statistics though. Please have a look at the R script that I made publicly available and check again with my blog post, because user participation is calculated independent of question/answer combinations. ...

Comment: C: Is The Biostar Fading? (Updated For 2014)
... Not quite sure how I would have included planet feed posts. As far as I can tell, planet feed posts URIs have the structure "biostars.org/linkout/..." and other posts adhere to "http://www.biostars.org/p/...". Even if those posts were included, then the vote related stats would still show a decline, ...

Comment: C: Allele Specific Events
... I upvoted this, because I think that some questions regarding some biological fundamentals are rather important for bioinformatics too. Since many of us deal with tools/databases that handle SNPs, it seems rather important to know about alleles and the confusion surrounding them. ...

Answer: A: Ncbi Taxonomy
... I assume you mistyped the first taxonomy ID and meant 603 instead. When you are using NCBI's web-search form, then a search for the ID 603 will redirect you to Salmonella enterica subsp. arizonae, which coincides with the XML query result you linked to. Said Salmonella has taxonomy ID 59203 just as ...
