Posted to Data Sources  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

There’s been all sorts of weird stuff going on at Reddit lately, but who’s got time for that when you can download 1.6 billion comments left on Reddit, since 2007 through May 2015?

This is an archive of Reddit comments from October of 2007 until May of 2015 (complete month). This reflects 14 months of work and a lot of API calls. This dataset includes nearly every publicly available Reddit comment. Approximately 350,000 comments out of ~1.65 billion were unavailable due to Reddit API issues.

Timestamp, comment ids, controversiality score, and of course the comment text. It’s 5 gigabytes compressed and available over torrent.

Git er done.
