= Querying databases
* How many: mpegs, pngs, ogg, etc
** Benefits to being able to answer question re: filetypes (example)
*** Validate future tools (currently focused on images)
*** Push to focus more on other media types (e.g. audio, video)
*** Would be good to show “here’s how many files that are images and why it’s okay for us to focus on those for now”
*** After MP3 upload is implemented
**** Track usage
***** Tell the story on how it went / how it’s going
** Track organic growth rate of uploads (historical trends)
*** By file type (including 3D (STL), vector formats, etc)
*** Use case: Is there a desire to add / create more functionality for certain file types based on the growth of those file types
*** Don’t include files uploaded and then deleted before a certain threshold or uploaded by an account that was deleted (e.g. spam bots)
**** Some organizations look at how many of their files were deleted - due to image quality
**** What is the minimal viable upload quality
***** "Statements” (metadata) that were added after upload - compare that with deletions??
***** Would be great to be able to say “this is the metadata you should have if you want to ensure a good outcome”
***** Might be best shown with queries - rather than a dashboard (ongoing metric tracking)
***** What is the ‘median’ survival time of metadata? (What’s the number used for new articles?)
** How many files are getting deleted?
*** copyright violations
**** Use case: creation of auto-copyright violation tools
*** Average time to deletion?
*** How many people are involved in flagging for deletion/deleting files
