[Moderator Message - This has been made a sticky topic for a short amount of time.]
In this forum they are 2 kind of members - 'Chart experts', everyone who search/post chart data, and 'Chart lovers', those who mainly enjoy what others post. Many of those chart lovers would probably like to contribute but don't know how to do it. This thread is for them. Many members already do a precise task every week and they do it well, a lot of other works still have to be done yet!
I have loads of excel sheets, formulas and such to estimate many figures from many countries, but I'm lacking time to compile/post here everything every week. I'm completely okay to send those sheets to everyone who want to contribute. Here some works already assumed by members:

Note: For people who want to post weekly chart position of an artist, the best is to have a message with entire runs for all countries, updating always that same message and putting the page on which it is in the title of the thread, the data can't be easier to check than with this method!

They are many others helping this forum to be so usefull, I can safely thanks them all in the name of everyone.
I would like to know who want to take the responsibility of a precise task? They are 2 kind of possible works - Artist related, posting chart positions/runs/certifications weekly of a precise artist (here an example
, all artist threads have this chart history on it, updated weekly by a fan), the second kind of work is chart/country related, like works already done: alltime best selling downloads in the US, catalog sellers, posting weekly charts of Germany, Australia etc...
If someone is interested in Netherlands, I have an excel sheet where you only have to enter the sales indice of an album to get an accurate estimate of its sales, I used it myself on the Netherland thread but as I said I'm lacking time to compile it every week. I also have sheets with formulas to estimate all historical singles sales in the following countries: UK, Germany, France, Netherlands, Australia, Canada. If someone is interested in, for example, working on all single sales in Australia, just say it, I will send him the Australian Singles sheet and give him all answers he wants to his question about the sheets/formulas/how to get chart data (to enter them in the sheet and get sales figures) etc.
That may be also someone who search for sales data on an accurate newspaper, if a German wants to search for old data of his country it would be great, or any other country.
So everyone who want to contribute, taking in charge a task, just answer to this thread and say what you want to do (for example updating weekly chart positions of Britney Spears), I will add everyone to this message and help everyone who is lacking links/data to complete his task. Feel free too to ask for sheets I referred to if you are interested in working on the related figures (I know several people that may be interested in the Australian sheet for example
Those I missed to mention and who already take in charge a specific work please post it here too, I will add them to the list, it would be much better if this section of UKmix could a bit organized
