Hi Aldie,

It would be great to be able to see stats on files we upload to BGG.

For example, when I upload a rules translation, I tend to make it available through my website first while I wait for it to be approved for BGG. And that means that I compulsively check my webstats for a few days to see whether people are actually downloading the file or not.

Then, it all goes (relatively) quiet once the file goes up on BGG. It would be nice to be able to look and see that a file has been downloaded by 2 people, or by 500 people, or somewhere in between.

I imagine this could also be a helpful factor for judging whether a file is worth downloading or not - if it's the player aid that everyone with a copy of Ra has downloaded, the odds are good.

Oh, too true. Files should have much information readily available than they do now.

I wonder why I never kept stats on that. I usually do that kind of thing... I will add it.

How about a date for the file? I did not see any dates anymore for when the file was uploaded/approved.

Thanks.

And I like Sterling's suggestion of the date the file was uploaded, too.
