Does anyone know if it’s possible to download/scrape the username, number of posts, and number of comments for every account on this instance?
I want to make a post that looks at user contribution, and shows different variations of X users are responsible for Y percent of engagement/content on this instance. Anyone have thoughts?

Ya as other said below, this would be very easy to do with lemmy-js-client. That endpoint is called persondetails I think.
We also have an open issue for user export of your own data, which would be very easy for someone who knows sql to do.
Yes, certainly someone knows if it is possible or not 😋
and yes again, everyone has thoughts !

You could start with the Lemmy API: https://join-lemmy.org/api/classes/LemmyHttp.html
Did a read through on all those calls. None of them would work quite the way I want unfortunately.
I think it was intended to give an idea for you access to the raw data, you would still have “crunch the data”
Take a look at the post below particularly selenium https://lemmy.ml/post/156483
