Stats for Tatoeba day #3

Tatoeba day #3 was about linking.

Just a short explanation for those who don't know: linking is about establishing a connection between two sentences, to say "this sentence is a translation of that sentence".
Whenever a user translates a sentence, the link is created automatically between the sentence and the translation. But there are other sentences that are not connected, even though they are translations of each other, because they have been added separately. This is where we need to link.

Links per user

Our winner is by far Shishir with 218 links! Followed by brauliobezerra with 117 links, and CK with 108 links.

I only counted the links that were made manually, not those who were automatically added when translating.

NOTE 1: in reality, the number of links is twice as much as mentioned here because when a sentence A and B are linked, 2 links are created: A->B and B->A.

NOTE 2: Linking was and is currently still limited to "trusted users" so not everyone could participate to this Tatoeba day. The feature is not very user friendly which is why it is restricted only to users who have a good knowledge of Tatoeba.

Links per language

The stats below include ALL the links, even those created automatically when translating. English is (not surprisingly) the language that was the most translated from or into. Then we have French, German, Spanish and Esperanto, who were pretty much equally important.
