1337pwn Statistics

The 1337pwn site currently manages updates for tens of thousands of tags for our XBOX Live Friends widget. That's not shabby for a solution that serves the narrow market of Mac/360 owners. With well over 10,000 downloads in less than 2 months, is now the #1 provider of XBOX Live related widgets and gamer status information on the MacOS platform.

We're proud of that. Thank you all for your support and feedback.

While we don't maintain any user specific information or identifiers, we do monitor our load at the server. Here are some interesting facts.

  • 40% of the tags managed by the server are requested daily

  • 60% have been requested at least once during the past week

  • 70% have been requested during the past two weeks

  • 10GB of gamertag data has been transferred

More than 1 million data requests were handled last month. We're on track to serve more than 2 million data requests this month. With this success, we're working to make the widget even better.
