    Hey guys,

    Today I am announcing a new little feature called "Download Statistics". On every bundle, you can view the number of downloads by hour, day and month. I hope you like it.

    Preview
    undelete thread or bundle.gif


    NOTE: The monthly graph is empty and will be until April, but will only be full in a year.

    well i would fancy the system and all, if it wasn't (like the usage in maps one) always telling me that people rarely use my stuff..

    Nice feature, a pretty good addition could be some tip links like "Perhaps you could try improving your downloads by following the next guide/tutorial".

    Wow, really? x|
    Access to information is never too much. The system is great, and if people rarely use your stuff (they rarely use mine too) it's good to know, might mean we don't make actually useful stuff. ;|

    Yes. For maps, it could run the map script through leak checker and suggest tutorial on leaks. And then it could try detect if it was originally in GUI (e.g. no locals) and suggest GUI tutorial, and otherwise JASS tutorial.

    Then there are simpler checks, for example if custom (non-melee) map has no custom map preview image, it could link to a relevant tutorial.

    Why is the gif called "undelete thread or bundle.gif"? Yet it shows the monthly statistics feature...

    I do not think it is a good idea to place a 4.6 MB gif image on the main page. Some people have expensive/limited data or slow internet connections.

    regular updates, signature link, post on Reddit, etc.

    weird. I guess the last gif I created had that name. Also yes, it's not responsible to force such a big image down people's throats. I will fix it when I get to a computer.

    I made it just for you :)

    Looks good. Any chance we can add stats about views?

    The quality of the hive is yet increasing, this is good.

    Just if quantity could be affected as well

    Huh, i haven't even thought of that. When you say views, you mean views of the bundle page?

    Excellent idea. I could even plot that graph along with the download graph in each grid.

    seeing all the creators replying to this, i apparently do not belong here, yet i want to say the dr.obvious solution to projects, bundles, and campaigns not being dlded
    msg a youtuber with your thing, try wtii, azothan, or record it yourself. haven't encountered a case where having footage on youtube would bring negative attention to a project
