It’s WIPUP statistics time, folks. I’d like to apologise for the lack of "proper" posts as I’ve been busy making a portfolio for a university application and bachoté in some new ThoughtScore stuff. Yes, that’s right. So a sad excuse is to look at statistics. (Those viewing my profile would probably know this already though)
As you can see only 3 or so days after the release we’ve hit the same level of views as previous updates. At the same time we see we’ve resumed our correlation between updates and views. I think the image really speaks for itself.
It’s however a bit more interesting to note that we’ve had 4 new updates added by new users (one apparently being a 77 year old lady from Alaska). I’ve also posted a thread on the BlenderArtists "news" forum category, and although we’ve only had 3 people view the thread (yeah, not that active apparently) we’ve gathered 3 very positive comments and had 3 registrations. Sounds good to me. Very good sign.
When dogfooding lately for current WIPs which weren’t built to be documented and not entirely of personal artistic nature I’ve noticed a natural rejection to putting work online. Something along the lines of "it’s not ready! It’s ugly as bollocks!" However I’ve resisted deleting anything and I don’t regret doing so. However I’m concerned that others (after overcoming the initial excitement) will experience the same. I guess it’s time to orchestrate a few social experiments, which if they prove anything interesting I’ll post about later.
All-nighter coming up.
