With my comment you're post is now at three times the median comments per post!

And now it's four times the median! :D

Do you have any statistics about the upvotes and earnings for comments? I seem to get well above the mean and median number of comments, and I make a lot of them, too.

Do you see much difference between a post's original payout (and other metrics) versus the 30-day performance? In looking at past posts for most people, I don't see any difference. But there are some posts, in the 30-day trending, that seem to do quite well after their initial payout. It would be helpful to understand better how a post can continue to perform after the initial payout.
