Yeah, Brett's situation was the reason for the delays in the charts and thanks to him we have the new updates and we were all here saying ioi this and ioi that.
I don't know about the staff but to me this situation brought into realization something about how much charts rely on a single person and I would think that the guys behind this website may have realized that having more than one person in charge of the charts or some backup or something is in order.
I mean (may it never happen right) if something ever happens to Brett and he cannot update charts then VGChartz will be pretty much screwed. We never know what could happen, I mean, maybe Brett could be in California when the prophecy of the devine earthquake happens or something, hopefully not.
Trust me, we notice it too. When you remove the sales data from a website that is built around sales data, all you have is "just another forum" on the Internet. Even though the numbers come under fire, and at times for good reason, they are good for what are which is an estimation.
VGChartz has a unique pull that a lot of other websites simply do not have. We lose that pull and we lose our dedicated userbase, we lose that pull and we lose any real influx of sustained future membership. It reaaaaaaally makes me wish that Brett had a "2nd in command" who he could trust enough to handle the sales data.
