I mean, that's assuming that the decision not to publish the article was unintentional. It wasn't an oversight, there is a method to the madness.

The May Scavenger Hunt article was by far one of the lowest-performing articles on the Content Portal in May. This impacted the content team's performance metrics, and they weren't super happy with me about that.

I am of the opinion that it's necessary to have a Content Article posted about it regardless, because it spreads awareness about the Scavenger Hunt and offers a centralized "Hub" for players who aren't avid forumgoers, Redditors, or members of our WoT NA Community Discord to reference for the Scavenger Hunt schedule. So, I decided no to publish an article this month as a control group - and I suspect that this month's participation will be a bit lower as a result.

If my theory is correct, next SH I will have data to justify taking time out of the content schedule to publish an article for my event, and update it regularly.

 

Domo, as always I appreciate your reply and think you've done a masterful job of wearing many hats communicating with the player base.  I actually did not assume it was unintentional and that's what alarmed me. 

 

Ask them if the metric measured this:  In May, I was on the web page.  In the list of News items I saw the title "Scavenger Hunt is Back in May!".  After seeing that, I went immediately to forums and to reddit where I got all of my details.  I'm sure many players did the same thing.  And because you do such a great job of relaying things to the forum, there was no need for people to go back to the web site article.  But it did it's job.  It notified any player going to the web site about the Scavenger Hunt.  They can't measure how many eye's hit it.  I didn't even know how much detail was in the May article until going back to check it before my recent post. 

 

Any ways, I appreciate your efforts, and maybe just pass along to them that very active players who spend money and time on this game were denied the full benefit of this mission because of it.

Six pages and the month is only half over. Scavenger Hunt isn't a complicated grind at all.

I don't understand how the May Scavenger Hunt article could be classified as "low performing".  The May thread is still on the first page of this Forum and has 412 replies.  And that doesn't include nearly a dozen threads in the general forum.  FFS how much more interaction can we give?!?

She's been up to a lot lately! I still have a couple open slots so maybe I can bug her to sign up for one but we've been asking a lot of her recently so I don't want to be pushy.

We love Sofi and are very glad to see her channel growing as much as it is!

I'm actually trying to cook up something far more complicated for you guys :trollface:

But if it happens it won't be for a long time. You will have forgotten all about this cryptic message by then.

Well I think that's part of the reason the content article itself didn't get a ton of visits. Everyone was sort of getting their information elsewhere, be it the forums via some diligent forumgoers like Scorpiany and Warchild (to name a couple of them; I see multiple SH threads popping up every month that we run the event), Reddit - I think Scorp has a thread pinned to the top of the subreddit right now - and Discord (we have a scavenger hunt channel on our WOTNA Community Discord - Shameless plug: https://discordapp.com/invite/wot-usa - and I see similar channels in many of the clan/CC discord servers i'm in).

But we'll see. Every time we promote one of our CC's on the portal via some form of event, like Jerm's casting for the Clan Playoffs, it seems to help them grow their audiences.

Because by now we know that we're not going to be able to get the information from WG in a timely manner ...
