Of C3 authors who released 10 or more songs, these authors had the highest average downloads, in order:
We had to specify “10 or more songs”, because otherwise Orange Harrison destroys everyone with The Beatles.
C3 releases included:
1040 songs with harmony vocals (1188 with GHtoRB3)
162 songs with “(2x Bass Pedal)” Drums charts
859 songs with Pro Keys (919 with GHtoRB3)
89 songs with Pro Guitar or Pro Bass (93 with GHtoRB3)
A large number of our Pro G/B charts were authored by columbo777, who I have criminally under-credited since the beginning.
We grouped our releases into 166 packs, with an average of 6.15 songs per pack.
Within those packs, we had 19 full albums, plus at least two packs that finished partial albums from Harmonix releases.
Exactly 300 songs were released as singles.
There were lots of “C02” packs, and a few “C03” packs, but only Guns N’ Roses and Queensrÿche made it to 4 packs. (All of Queensrÿche’s were full albums!)
It’s hard to pin down exact author counts, but over 90 different people worked on official C3 releases.
The most prolific author is farottone, who personally authored or contributed to over 460 songs. This means farottone is at least partially responsible for 35% of all C3 songs.
After farottone is Nightmare Lyra, who authored or contributed to 130 songs. After the two of them, there’s a sharp drop before the rest of us mortal authors.
Excluding farottone, because he throws off all the numbers, each author contributed an average of ~16 songs.
Our author team is from all over the world — at least ten different countries are represented, including Italy, Norway, Canada, the US, and others.
Since it launched with The Rapture, this blog has received over 925,000 page views. That’s an average of more than 7,000 views per week.
We’ve made 163 posts, most of which are release posts.
About 155 of those posts were made by me, pksage.
With a very few exceptions, every release post has had at least one preview video. These 170+ videos were made by Lowlander and TrojanNemo, and represent ridiculous amounts of time spent capturing all the footage and editing it together.
The old forums had 4500 topics, 61,949 posts, and 2,072 members before they were migrated to the new platform.
Our most active poster is (unsurprisingly) farottone, who had 4,124 posts in the old forums.
