Alrighty, no harm done. If you could upload the replacement image, that would be great. Thanks! --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 00:43, February 3, 2015 (UTC)

HP Activity Data

Hi Brandon,

Thanks so much for posting those activity details.

The early posting spikes time with the release of Fantastic Beasts and I suspect with the DVD/Bluray release incorporating special features etc etc.

It certainly will be interesting to see the effects of 'Crimes of Grindelwald' and just how high peaks after thw movie.

In preparation for that influx, I'm wondering if the new FANDOM Discussion updates will be released before the November release?

I can confirm the spikes in deletion are a known factor/events rather than trends, and I'm pleased to see the deletion rates are minimal compared to the post rates.

I have some other ideas regards rebuilding Wook- some of which are likely irrelavant after coming updates, but wonder if this is an acceptable format to discuss such things.

Thanks again for the info.

Kind regards Marc The Dark Marc 04:11, September 21, 2018 (UTC)

Hi again Brandon, I suspect the MOD group will be keen to adopt anything that will help them cope with the influx relating to a new movie. I'm excited to see what developments are on their way! Chat soon, Marc The Dark Marc 06:05, September 21, 2018 (UTC)

Wook Promo idea

Hi Brandon,

I know you said to hang onto my ideas, but I think I have one that's left of field enough to bother you with now... would something like this work?

Obviously you'd have to change House Points to Force Points or Credits or something.. and being that you're after a 'Like' based community to prioritize Trending Posts, perhaps quality posts could be marked as 'Force Sensitive'.. and all likes count as Points/Credits (avoiding the need for MOD scoring which is time consuming) and tallied at the end of the month. Each member could add if they were Light Side or Dark Side on their Bio or in their post.

Perhaps add another facet and introduce Rewards (the ever popular 'achievement' system) for high Force totals at the end of the Month where each side have said points rewarded virtual Canon Characters. These Canon Characters are collected for each side for an end of year battle (each character being worth a set number of Victory points..) a battle of Light against Dark..

This means MODs can select quality posts which will both encourage 'likes' and better populate the 'trending' articles with higher quality posts. It should also actually encourage higher quality posts with a positive spin, while theming the Discussion Area a little more and fostering a healthy competitive spirit.

  • Interesting idea. I'll give that some thought! - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 17:27, September 22, 2018 (UTC)

Discussion Area Headers

Hi again Brandon,

The MOD group at the HP Forum is looking to restructure the chat areas to best accomadate the coming spike and maximize member retention rates.

We're keen to get a FANDOM staff member who has far more experience across all FANDOMs and the best setup of discussion area tabs, and were hoping you might be able to cast your eye over the HP areas and give some feedback?

Many thanks

Hey The Dark Marc. One question I have first is what you mean by Discussion Area Headers. Can you clarify that? - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 00:24, October 3, 2018 (UTC)

Hi Brandon

Sorry I wasn't clear- I likely have the wrong terminology. I think I should have said Categories. For example you discuss the SW one here:

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Dear Brandon,

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

I asked Santa to see the new data for the HP wikia since the FB2 movie, but he e'mailed back suggesting I talk to you about it..

Hoping the this Season of Goodwill has been good to you.

Kindest Regards
