#ghack Saving all images submitted in a challenge
This is a feature we are still working in our analytics... but meanwhile, here's a tip.
1. Load the url of the challenge. e.g. https://gametize.com/play/challenge?id=49355 where 49355 is the challenge ID
2. Make sure you have loaded all the activities (keep tapping on "load more")
3. Save the entire webpage
4. Keep only the JPEGS with the challenge id (e.g. 49355), as these are the only ones submitted.
p/s It is important you should not use these images without the permissions of the submitters.
Main concern is the potential enormous data and download speed.
Back in 2015, we tested the project level completions report with image downoad for the top performing project. It took 40-60mins to download the report. It also requires much memory on the server to generate the report.
Hence, we decided to limit the access to the function on Gametize.com for UX concern (slow download gives a bad impression of performance issue) and also concern on server resources.
Due to performance considerations, these decisions were made:
We only show the image download option for topic/challenge level reports
On Gametize.com, we limit it further such that only Ninja accounts are allowed to download these reports.
For Enterprise Platforms, all admin accounts have access to those options.
For project level report, the option is not displayed. However, the functionality is there via a “secret” link.
