Light Novel Sales

Originally created as a temporary home for sales ranking thread, this seems to have exploded somehow into something far more... If anyone feels willing and able to make a basic club layout, please let me know. Looking for help with: - Finding circulation figures from publishers - Someone to do a layout for the club (a banner, club picture and formatting of text is probably enough) - Suggestions for other ideas. What I will not be adding: - Individual retailer rankings, other than the book depository one that already has a thread. They're generally not very useful. Anything that I deem is useful will be linked in the club comments - feel free to link to these here yourselves as well. - POS ranks. These are useful, but I feel they're more effort than they're worth. If anyone else feels as though they have enough time and dedication to post them regularly, I will consider letting them. From past experience each one takes about 2.5 hours to do. There are 2 relevant sets each of daily, weekly, monthly, half yearly (both half years unlike oricon) and yearly rankings.

I imagine that's how most people use this, yes.

Feel free to ask any questions you may have, although I can't guarantee answers.

Hey, thanks for the invite! This is going to be an interesting club that I'll check from time to time (and contribute too when I have any chance). I'll probably be asking questions about light novels too as I have little knowledge regarding this medium but not now at least.

I'm going to send some invites to people who might be interested. If you have received an invite and are not interested, just get rid of the invite.

The club's opening has been delayed due to me finally(!) finding the full yearly sales ranks for 2017. These will either be linked or posted here once I have gone through them, and of course any relevant data will be posted in the threads at the same time as the latest weekly data gets added.

kuuderes_shadow | Apr 28, 12:25 PM
The main threads are now all updated to 1st April, excluding the monthly sales figures.

Monthly figures for March should be added tomorrow, with the next 4 weeks' data added next weekend, which will get things caught back up again.

I guess there's noone who is both
a) stalking me
b) sufficiently interested to ask to join
Which is probably a good thing. I added links on Friday evening.
