#12. MW101 w/SICπŸ€:: {MW Crowd Index} Spring break is starting and Summer is just around the corner (yay!!), "How crowded will the parks be.." will continue to be the most FAQ in the lounge (understandably so). I have already done a MW101 on how you can very quickly and easily tell for yourself how crowded the park currently is. You can find that post here: http://tinyurl.com/7zg5oa2. I have seen some questions recently on the MW Crowd Index, how it works and how accurate it is. From the Rules and FAQs:: "How is this number accurate? MouseWait has the most real-time wait time submissions in the world and we have designed our advanced algorithm to select the most accurate times, mixed w/ several other factors, to generate the MWCI real-time. We also have a large amount of MouseWaiters in the park at any given time." While this system is still fairly new, it relays A LOT on us, the MW community and the accurate wait times we proved it. Admin works so hard on these helpful tools for us, it is so important to remember to take just a couple sec's to enter wait times and help Admin back!! : ) It is the best and fastest way to rack up some points too! Once you get the hang of it, it almost becomes 2nd nature. You're wait times not only help keep MW #1, but will continue to feed the Crowd Index w/ accurate information so that we can all retire our Crystal Balls and continue to confidently direct people to it for answers. You can find a 101 on how to enter wait times here: http://tinyurl.com/7ndkabu. If you want to know more go here: http://tinyurl.com/2arrav7 and read the detailed MW article on the Crowd Index. ......................Also taken from the Rules and FAQs is how to read the percentage the Crowd index gives and provides a little crowd prediction for the year! πŸ”΄100 Capacity – not letting people in the park πŸ”΄95 Near capacity – requiring hand stamps and rumors of blocking people out (ie Christmas vacation, New Years) πŸ”΄90 4th of July/Thanksgiving and other major holidays packed but no rumors of reaching capacity πŸ”΄80 Summer, spring break high crowds but they are also running a lot of trains/cars for everything πŸ”΄70 Feb-March – not busy but starting to pickup πŸ”΄60 Jan after the holiday and everyone is back to work/school πŸ”΄50 Sept-Oct after kids are back to school ..........So while it can get old to see the same question, we need to remember to do your part and enter wait times...it will also provide you with piles and piles of good pixie dust in your life!😊✨

Great reminder! Especially the bit about wait time updates = more points! Much better way to gain points, in my opinion, then just posting random posts for the sake of getting points.
