The report for Week 2 for September is already available.

Linkback bot updates

  • Linkback bot is now more efficient and uses less blockchain space by switching to markdown from HTML. Savings can reach 20-50% per comment. Thanks to @clayop for suggesting this feature!
  • Fixed bug with false positives for link detection. Thanks to @timcliff for the bugreport.
  • Some authors generating a lot of noisy links were excluded to increase signal/noise ratio.
