Lodewijk reported last year "more than 2000 uploads in day 1". So the ratio would be 1:84!

In a paper made by WM-ES you can see a figure with uploads per day: http://digithum.uoc.edu/ojs/index.php/digithum/article/view/n14-rodriguez-gonzalez-sierra-navarro-saorin/n14-rodriguez-gonzalez-sierra-navarro-saorin-eng
