Here's the list of ongoing topics, and the ones that are up to grab.

Charts threads

Financial threads
There is a rotation each quarter with @MarcoP90 and @acezam also contributing for the other publishers.

Backlog: we are waiting for your help !
  • Help for the weekly Eshop thread (urgent)
  • Digital share Database

Hoping this will help to structure the collective effort, in order to build very valuable ressources for every Sales aficionado.

I noticed Vena who made the mobile/gacha market thread is not listed?
Good catch, I am adding them to the OP
Should we have a more official archive for the new Amazon data?
What do you have in mind ?
 
May I suggest something for the financial and quarterly threads?

At the end of the reports, we should make an horizontal comparison between most of the companies, comparing quearterly and YTD revenues, operating profit, net profit, maybe hw and sw units sold (for the big three), all in one single thread or even a single spreadsheet of graphic.

I suggest this because sometimes is difficult to jump from thread to thread to see if Koei had a bigger revenue than Konami or Kadokawa, for example

Hope this helps

Great job, everyone!
 
i'm going to stop updating the switzerland weekly charts thread. if anyone else is interested, they can start a new thread or just post the updates in the weekly PAL threads.

will also stop posting the monthly european eshop chart threads, tho lite_agent has already been posting them for the past few months anyways.

I hope everything is alright mazi, no worries we'll take care of it.

Could you maybe provide the links you used for the Swiss thread ?

Thanks and take care.

Thanks and take care.
the latest chart should always be accessible here. tho they often forget to give weekly updates and sometimes dump 2 or 3 weeks of updates together.
 

Wanted to thank everyone making threads and/or covering sales charts in 2023 even as my own plans went off the road.​

Chart threads​

...nah I'm good! :) If any existing users plans change in 2024, please inform @Lelouch0612 - especially for the weekly eShop thread if the urgent C&C Red Alert! text is still in effect. šŸ˜Š

Financial threads​

Aim to cover the following in 2024 & may consider others (like People Can Fly) but won't commit to any due to my current situation, time involved & until I'm happy with the existing ones.

NJ Holdings - IR Meeting Year 2024
  • Synduality: Echo of Ada release date TBC.
  • Announcement of Financial Results for the second quarter of the fiscal year ending June 30, 2024 (February 9, 2024)
  • Financial Results Briefing for Analysts (February 26, 2024)
Motorsport Games - Events

UPCOMING EVENTS​

More events are coming soon (be still my racing heart)

Output Strategy threads​

I'd recommend using the post 3 format in the OP @Lelouch0612 but its up to you. As with Financial threads won't commit to any more for similar reasons. Want to redesign existing ones first to see if I can improve them all. Shorter, more succinct OPs, use threadmarks rather than edit function. Thinking of ways to encourage discussion. Constructive feedback is welcome. *crickets*

  • And whatever you are looking for !
After the abject failure to produce A Sales Story article, not making any promises I cannot keep. Way behind on all the things I wanted to do after having caught the writing bug. Taking it easy & just posting for enjoyment right now. Curious what everyone is planning to write in 2024. Even if you're not looking to contribute, please don't hesitate to make suggestions for IB OPs!!!

Volunteers, gather around! New
ALERT! ALERT! CALL TO ALL THE VOLUNTEERS WITH A BIG HEART
...for the PlayStation Store Charts weekly threads!

As just announced in the first iteration of the PlayStation Store Charts weekly thread, which you can find here, we need help. And a lot of it, actually :p
More specifically, we are looking for:
- one person who's going to post and handle the threads for the foreseeable future
- multiple people who want to collaborate and provide assistance in posting the rankings from different regions / countries. Which ones, specifically? Well, as many as possible :D But let's start with many of the biggest markets, alongside the US: Japan, UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy. Contribution from other countries would be greatily appreciated as well.

Like I said in the thread itself, unfortunately there are high chances I won't be able to be the thread opener in the future but I wanted to kickstart the initiative and pave the path a little bit for those who have genuine interest in taking the reins of the thread.

And well, that's all for to-

ALERT! ALERT! ANOTHER CALL IS COMING!
for the...Anime TV Ratings, Hours Watched, DVD / Blu-Ray Sales | Discussion Thread?!?

Not necessarily with that title, but yes: we're looking for further expansion of sales coverage: after the Manga thread and the Box Office weekly threads, starting to look into Anime ratings and sales was kind of inevitable, wasn't it? :p
We're looking for people who have enough familiarity with the field that they're able to handle both kickstarting and managing the threads in the future, as well as potential collaborators. Contrary to the PS Store Charts threads, this would be a single thread with constant updates and discussion just like the ongoing Manga thread.

For both calls, if you have good familiarity with the respective fields and enough time and will to volunteer for them, don't hesitate to get in touch with the other moderators and become part of the team to, as the thread title says, build Install Base even further.

And now that's all for today, for real. See you in the future :D
