Everyone's invited to join in this race, to beat your own 2011 figure for redeemed credits as soon as possible in 2012.

People can join in at any time, we could note how we're doing after the end of each month as a percentage of our 2011 RC figure.

Thought a good (maybe quite ambitious) target to aim for could be 10% of last year's RC total for each month in of 2012.  That would mean hitting last year's total in ten months - by the end of October this year.  Optimistic I know smile

So if you made 55,700 RCs last year the target would be 5,570 for January, then 11,140 after the end of Feb and so on.

Of course some people might be aiming to beat last years sales before the end of October, but it shouldn't matter - if we post our percentages after each month we can keep tabs on how everyone's getting along, without people having to reveal any actual sales or income details.

We're going for the 3rd of each month to report the previous month's stats.

Please either report your percentage in this thread and I'll add it to the stats document, or follow the link above and add it in.  No sign up's needed.

Here's an example calculation for January:

If your 2011 Redeemed Credit total was 25,000, and your RC figure on 3rd Feb 2011 is 1,800...

You'd calculate 1800 divided by 25000 x 100 = 7.2% to report for January

I'll play, though at my current achievement levels I think I will be left in the dust lol! Current RC's are 1.5% of last years total

Yep mine so far for Jan are abysmal too - was hoping that things would start to pick up today, but no sign yet.

I've tested out a nice and basic Google graph for plotting everyone's progress at the month ends, makes it easy to add people in who might join a few months in.

Any opinions on which days we should report our totals?  I was thinking maybe the 2nd or 3rd of each month, so that the RC total has (hopefully) caught up with the sales to month end.  Hope that sometime we'll get a date stamp on the RC figure so there's less guesswork.

Cheers

I am in too even if I am afraid it is going to be difficult to keep last years RC:s, in spite of uploading fairly much I seem to be on a downward slope when it comes to DL:s. Well I must uypload the wrong images and I hope this will be another push in the right direction,

Count me in as well.  Great idea.  I'm just hoping to hit silver royalties again this year.  But it would be fun to see if I can reach it faster than I did in 2011.

how do you compare RCs now to what you had in 2011 ?

^ Good question.  I tried to track them myself but gave up when my stats never matched istocks.  There isn't any place to see RC by month for last year is there?

Well, we all have a goal in mind.  And for everyone it's probably at or above last year's level... Maybe this race should be about reaching that goal instead of trying to compare with last year?  This way if your goal is 40,000/RC, you divide it by 12 - that would give your your monthly goal, and then we can report percentages above or below that goal - to keep some sense of privacy.  Just my 2 cents
