I've been thinking of some changes for the Amazon threads. Namely, having fewer of them. I was thinking about possibly trying seasonal/quarterly threads starting next month (which would be the start of summer/Q3). This would give me more leeway in creating threads, as I wouldn't have to scramble to make one every month on the first. I'm getting more and more forgetful about getting the threads up because of how much other stuff I have going on these days.

If I did move to a seasonal/quarterly format, I would probably discontinue logging in the weekly rankings and just focus on monthly and yearly rankings. The Amazon hardware rankings in general have lost the predictive power they once had, with the Switch clearly dominating on the site despite having come in second in actual sales for the past several months, meaning the Amazon rankings are more of a curiosity/interest thing now than something with utilitarian value in determining the relative NPD hardware rankings. As such, logging in minutiae like the weekly rankings, which I've routinely forgotten anyway, isn't something I feel is necessary anymore.

Would everyone be fine with that?

I am fine with that. If you don't mind I would take over the weekly updates as I have extended my code base for that as well.
