ioi doesn't give a damn about VGChartz anymore, but at the same time he doesn't want to let anyone else know how updating the numbers works! Makes perfect fucking sense to me!

Most probably the sample sales data collection part of his method is based on his acquaintances, so one of the most time consuming part can't be transfered to others, he could teach the number crunching part to anybody skilled enough, but this person should build quite a big network of sources from scratch, maybe some sources could accept to tell their data to another, surely official sources, when available, would be just fine with anyone managing the site (but official sources alas, are scarce and almost always they release data at most quarterly, but it's very rare, with most we're lucky if they speak once a year, except when launch, BF or Xmas numbers are particularly good), but others could just trust ioi.
