Markus Döring Thu, 22 Sep at 9:06am provides 3 links to 2,183,212 total taxon, 1,291,282 total species and 121,251 name usages.
These dont make much sense. We could maybe provide a link to search all nub usages (~species), but to list all usages across all checklists is pointless and "all taxa" is unclear what that is, probably exactly the same as all usages?
Suggest to remove all those links and rather extend the list of preconfigured groups above. Maybe add "Kingdoms" to show the 8 root kingdoms of the nub?

Agree the current does not make sense, though the main purpose of the bigger numbers was to give a quick numerical overview of main content. How about replacing the three links with "Animals", "Plants", and "other Kingdoms", giving species / end node counts of taxa underneath?

Markus Döring Wed, 28 Sep at 3:00am
That is one good option based on (accepted usages) in the nub I assume.
What about listing number of records in total, aka all name usages from all indexed checklists? I think thats an interesting figure too. Do we have to have exactly 3 figures?

Andrea Hahn Wed, 28 Sep at 3:11am
We had been trying to hold usages a bit lower profile, as the concept will confuse most of our users. I'd tend to focus the summary counts on this page on the nub alone.
Regarding the 3 figures - for the sake of some layout consistency compared to the other search entry pages, three is a nice number that prevents cluttering. We do have statistics pages that we can fill with much more detail later on.

Lets ask David for his top 3 statistics figures he'd like to see.
Mine are still number of all usages in the nub, number of accepted species, number of all usages across every checklist (a total count similar to all occ records)

Dave, 17/10/11:
1) total species
2) total infraspecific
3) x common names in y languages
All referring to accepted names in nub usage (no higher taxa, no other usage count)
