S9.312b - We'll Want Stats

ParaB walked up to the President, who was sipping a glass of water in Maud's bar.

"QSine? Here's the thing," the conic parabola began. "We need you to sign an executive order, which will allow us to run a serial sequence off-panels."

The trigonometry woman looked up. "Like we do at Christmas?"

ParaB shook her head. "No, more. We want this sequence to be a Monday update, within the continuity of PREVIOUS and NEXT."

QSine frowned. "But why? And who's advocating for this?"

ParaB pointed back over towards a group of assembled math personifications. "A bunch of us. Because here's the thing, you know how, this past December, last year's Cubic Formula Song Parody had topped 100 views?"

QSine nodded, having another sip of water.

"It's nearly reached 700 now."

QSine spat her water out all over the table. "600 views in 6 months?! Our last Christmas song barely has 20 views for the same time period."

"And the Christmas song wasn't in a continuity of PREVIOUS and NEXT," ParaB said, crossing her arms. "So for the new Statistics video, which we've been planning over the last couple weeks, we want to draw more attention to it. I mean, when you think about it, Stats is even more important than Cubics. Plus it doesn't help that, with the whole Twitter Math Camp thing going on soon, it'll be easy for educators to miss this one."

QSine blotted the water as best as she could with some napkins. "What's the new video use?"

"It's the tune of a Savage Garden song, one which was also used in a recent anime. There's shout-outs. It'll be cool."

QSine looked back up. "Well, maybe. I don't think we can put it on the Index page for Series 9 though... you really think mere continuity will help?"

ParaB shrugged. "Given how this site still gets zero view days across close to 270 posts of material? We actually don't know. Which is kind of the point. Can't hurt, and gives us some data. Woo, data!"

QSine looked back over to the others who were watching them, then back to ParaB. She half smiled. "Can I be in this video too?"

ParaB smiled back. "For sure."

President QSine pulled out a pen. "Consider your approval granted, retroactively. You think people coming here will click on the video link? Or for that matter, will have even read this far?"

ParaB ran her palm down over her face. "Gawd I hope so."
