I guess he used that script that he had laying around. But it is an impressive amount of sales considering this marketplace is only 6-7 years old! Thanks pixelentity!

That’s actually a lot less than I’d expected, with over 2.5 million members

True. Do note that there weren’t 2,5 million members to begin with. Also we don’t know anything about actual active accounts and about authors having multiple accounts regarding exclusivity issues.

that just requires a simple script, had one but page markup changed since then and i’m too lazy to fix it. revaxarts/dtbaker any ?

I actually did some kind of fetching in the past but my brain stopped working on finding algorithms so I postponed it.

I did a graphic on item releases per month since the beginning though:

Do one where you check the badge type, and add the minimum amount of dollars worth of items sold for each author.. curious to see how much that would be, and that wouldn’t even be close to the actual total amount ;)
