2,000 “Likes” on Facebook for Everything Dinosaur

Over the last few days or so, the Everything Dinosaur Facebook page has passed the 2,000 “likes” mark.  We just want to say a very big thank you to all our customers, readers and dinosaur enthusiasts who have given our page a “like”.  Every “like” is greatly appreciated and unlike many companies, we have never purchased “likes” or manipulated the site to add fake likes.  All these endorsements have come from people who genuinely think that we are good at what we do.

Recently, there have been a number of studies undertaken into how businesses can purchase endorsements such as positive reviews, favourable blog articles, Facebook “likes” and so forth.  BBC journalists have even tracked down individuals who have posted up company reviews and been paid for doing so.  We at Everything Dinosaur believe that good companies don’t need to mislead customers and potential new customers in this way.  We let our good service and hard work speak for us.

To read a recent article about misleading company and product reviews being posted online: Fake Reviews Mislead Customers

We are truly grateful for all the Facebook “likes” that we receive.  We really enjoy posting up pictures, articles and information on our Facebook page, we have lots of friends and last year we accumulated 1,580 “likes” so we are truly honoured to have added nearly five hundred more this year.  At Everything Dinosaur we believe that Facebook “likes” have to be earned and not purchased we shall continue to work hard to earn every appreciative “like” that we receive.

At the start of 2015 we set ourselves a few “targets” for Everything Dinosaur’s Facebook page, let’s see how we are doing:

Targets:

  1. Increase “likes” to “2,000″ by the end of 2015 (we have reached this target by the third week of June)
  2. Increase the number of friends we have on Facebook to 400 by the end of the year (gaining more Facebook friends all the time and we should pass this target later on this year)
  3. Run at least three competitions and free giveaways to show our gratitude to our Facebook fans (just like we did last year), a new competition will be announced shortly
We believe customer service is the key to getting "likes".

Target for 2015 was 2,000 earned “likes”.

Feel free to “like” our page by clicking on the Facebook logo – that would be brilliant!!

Perhaps we should reset our Facebook “likes” target for 2015 to 2, 500!

Fake Reviews Misleading Potential Customers

Genuine Reviews from Teachers after Dinosaur Workshops

This week there have been a number of reports commissioned that focus on the allegations over the publishing of fake and misleading reviews on retailing websites.  In a survey carried out by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), some 54% of the adults questioned revealed that they relied on reviews that had been posted up on websites and that many respondents found them invaluable.  Third party testimonials, posted up feedback and customer reviews are a very helpful source of information.  Visitors to a website can read the comments and other information posted and this does affect their purchasing decisions.

It is important that customers can feel confident about the information in reviews, that these reviews have been provided by genuine customers, whether it be a service or product purchased.  There have also been a number of allegations made of people “blackmailing” businesses with threats to leave very negative reviews in order to obtain a benefit such as a discount.  In addition, many of the reviews that are posted up are often paid for, examples of which are Tweets from innovators and celebrities endorsing a product, or favourable blog articles singing the praises of a company.  Some of these blog posts endorsing a firm or its goods and services do state within the article that this is a paid for posting, whilst others do not.  The CMA has launched an investigation into several companies, as the use of paid for endorsements without a clear admission of payment may be unlawful.

Everything Dinosaur team members would like to reassure readers that every review posted up on its websites is genuine.  The reviews, feedback and comments we receive are from our customers or, as is the case on our dinosaur workshops in school website, from teachers or senior management from an organisation that has had one of our dinosaur themed workshops.

Review Given to Everything Dinosaur from Year 1 Teacher

Every review posted is genuine feedback from a member of the teaching team.

 Take for example, the image above.  This is our latest review, teaching feedback given to us after a dinosaur workshop with a class of Year 1 children.  We have removed the teacher’s surname and email address in order to compile with our own online publishing policy in terms of protecting an individual’s privacy.  The teacher even took the trouble to colour in the stars as she awarded as “five stars” for our dinosaur workshop.

Nikki (the teacher), stated:

“Fantastic knowledge of dinosaurs, very interactive.  Children thoroughly enjoyed it!  Great workshop. Thank you.”

Thank you Nikki, your comments are greatly appreciated.  We log all our feedback, comments, reviews and such like.  Teaching feedback for example, is stored so that we can use this information to help improve our service to schools and to demonstrate to STEM/STEMNET (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths – Network) how we have feedback loops built into our training to help promote continuous development.

Nisha Arora, Senior Director at the CMA, commented to the BBC:

“We are committed to ensuring that consumers’ trust in these important information tools is maintained.  We will take enforcement action where necessary to tackle unlawful practices.”

Facebook “likes” are another area of concern.  We know of a number of companies who have purchased thousands of likes to help boost the profile of the Facebook pages and in turn, their own brand/web presence.  Facebook, claims to have cracked down on this practice but there are still many examples on this social media platform.

Sue Judd, the Finance Director of Everything Dinosaur stated:

“A huge, international business has sprung up in the last few years all aimed at helping to promote companies, boost brands and endorse products.  At Everything Dinosaur, we pride ourselves in publishing genuine feedback, reviews and comments and we would never knowingly post up information such as fake reviews and endorsements.”

The CMA estimates that some £23 billion (GBP) a year of consumer spending was potentially influenced by online reviews.  So called “astroturfing”, the practice of creating fake grass root reviews can lead to big rewards for unscrupulous businesses.  There have also been reports made about businesses writing fake reviews of themselves to boost their ratings on review sites and even some examples of firms writing or commissioning fake negative reviews to undermine rivals, for malicious reasons or for personal gain.

Purchased Facebook “Likes”

Customers can gain some understanding of the practices employed by examining the business profiles of companies on Facebook.  If an organisation suddenly has hundreds or even thousands more “likes”, then this could be an example of purchased likes being added to the business profile.  Although, as site managers aim to get on top of this problem, the firms and individuals behind such practices are getting smarter.  Rather than post up huge numbers of “likes” in a short period, contracts are drawn up whereby dozens and dozens of fake “likes” are posted up over a period of several weeks.  These trends are more difficult for administrators and site security watchdogs to spot.

Everything Dinosaur currently has around 2,020 Facebook “likes”, this number has been steadily rising since the Facebook page was launched.

Everything Dinosaur’s Reviews – The Numbers

Here is a list of the numbers of published reviews from customers posted up on Everything Dinosaur’s websites:

  • 1,286 customer reviews on Everything Dinosaur’s website - Everything Dinosaur Sadly, we were not able to transfer the many thousands of reviews that had been posted up previously when we transferred website servers.
  • 2,020 Facebook “likes”
  • 57 dinosaur workshop reviews since this site went live at the end of August 2014.  See the reviews here: Dinosaur Workshops in Schools

Recently, social media sites such as Facebook have introduced a number of enhancements.  For instance, visitors to a company’s Facebook page can get an insight into the firm’s responsiveness if the site displays a logo (found under the Page’s cover photo) that states that this firm is very responsive to messages.  To qualify a Page must have done both of the following over the previous 7 days:

  1. Responded to 90% of messages
  2. Maintained a median response time of five minutes for all replies sent

These are quite tough, especially when you consider the global nature of a business such as ours.  We do our best to respond quickly, but messages sent from Australia could arrive when all our team members are tucked up in bed.  Everything Dinosaur confidently predicts that very soon (if not already), a number of dubious practices will be offered by various individuals/companies to provide a false impression of a firm’s responsiveness.

“Jurassic World” in Record Weekend

$511 Million USD in Cinema Ticket Sales in a Weekend for Jurassic World

“Jurassic World” directed by Colin Trevorrow and co-produced by Steven Spielberg has become the first film in history to take more than $500 million dollars (USD) at the box office on its opening weekend.  The film, the fourth in the Jurassic Park franchise, had been scheduled for release in the summer of 2014, but script issues and filming delays put back the release of the movie.  Any doubts the executives at Universal Studios had about “Jurassic World” were very quickly dispelled as advance ticket sales for the opening weekend had hinted that the lure of genetically engineered dinosaurs was going to result in huge financial rewards for the studio.

The film was the most popular screening in all sixty-six countries where it was released over  the weekend.  In the United States it took some $204 million dollars (USD), box office receipts in China are estimated to have exceeded $100 million (USD), whilst in the United Kingdom and Ireland ticket sales were around the $30 million (USD) mark.  According to media reports, the success of “Jurassic World” in America makes it the second highest grossing opening weekend for a film in the United States (the record is held by the 2012 release of Marvel’s “The Avengers” which took $207.4 million (USD) in its first weekend.

 Global box office ticket sales have been estimated at around the $511.8 million dollars mark (USD), that equates to approximately  £325 million (GBP), even the giant Masrani conglomerate, the fictitious global concern that supposedly owns the theme park where the movie is set, would be impressed with sales figures such as these.

The first “Jurassic Park” film was released in 1993.  Everything Dinosaur team members think that this first movie (for the time being), remains Universal Studio’s highest grossing film ever, with over $921 million (USD) generated at the box office worldwide.  This figure was further boosted by cinema receipts from the twentieth anniversary edition released in 2013.  To put these cinema sales into context, the top grossing film in the United States and Canada last year (box office receipts), was “Guardians of the Galaxy which took some $333.1 million (USD), “Jurassic World” achieved over sixty percent of this sales figure in just its opening weekend.  ”Guardians of the Galaxy” starred Chris Pratt, who plays Owen Grady, the Velociraptor behaviourist turned hero of “Jurassic World”.

People Just Love Dinosaurs

What does all this mean?  Put simply, people just love dinosaurs and the bigger and fiercer they are the better.  Perhaps this film will inspire the next generation of scientists, a spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“Jurassic World, was always going to be a huge success in all likelihood.  The film puts people and dinosaurs together and that is a winning combination that has been proved time and time again throughout cinema history.”

A Sequel?

The success of the film does not just mean a rekindling of our love affair with summer block-busters, it also virtually guarantees that the “Jurassic Park” franchise will continue.  Everything Dinosaur team members predict that there will be a sequel, expect announcements soon and a cinema release of maybe late 2017.

Team members try to make annual predictions about dinosaur discoveries, fossil finds and likely events related to palaeontology at the beginning of each year.  Our first prediction for 2015, was a real no-brainer, we confidently stated that “Jurassic World” was going to be a huge success!

Apatosaurus Illustration

A Young Apatosaurus is Sketched

To reflect the recently published scientific paper that summarised the re-evaluation of the Apatosaurinae, that sub-family of diplodocid Sauropods, that led to the re-establishment of the genus Brontosaurus, team members at Everything Dinosaur have commissioned a new illustration of one of these long-necked dinosaurs.  Brontosaurus means “thunder lizard”, an apt description for this type of dinosaur, one that could have weighed as much as twenty-five tonnes and measured as long as a tennis court (B. excelsus).  Long-necked dinosaurs are extremely popular amongst adults and youngsters and we do get asked a lot of questions about these types of prehistoric animals when we visit schools, from the teachers as well as the children.

For further information: Is Brontosaurus Back?

We will probably use this new illustration to make a scale drawing for our dinosaur fact sheets.  We research and write a fact sheet for every named prehistoric animal item that Everything Dinosaur supplies.  We have hundreds of these fact sheets and we do supply them to schools and to home education groups to help teachers and parents.  More drawings will be commissioned shortly, the majority of these will be for new model introductions.  We can’t say too much about this just yet, further information will be made available at the end of the year.  What we can say is that there are going to be some very exciting new models in 2016.

Congratulations to All Involved with The Times Cheltenham Science Festival

The Times Cheltenham Science Festival Draws to a Close

The Times Cheltenham Science Festival ends today, Sunday’s events will bring to a close six days of infinite curiosity with presentations featuring battling dinosaurs, Lord Robert Winston, Mars exploration, quantum mechanics, the secret lives of dogs and a forensic analysis of King Richard III.  These events reflect the extremely diverse range of activities, presentations and hands-on science experiments that have been available on the Imperial Square site in Cheltenham since the festival began on June 2nd.

Sunshine and Clear Skies for Much of the Festival

The Times Cheltenham Science Festival is an annual celebration of how our world works and how science helps us understand it.  Everything Dinosaur team members were invited down and we were most impressed by the enthusiasm and dedication of the volunteers who made all the visitors feel at home.  This year, four big topics were covered, the universe, life, back to the future and of course dinosaurs.   We enjoyed meeting all the young dinosaur fans (not so young dinosaur fans as well) and we were even roped in to help answer some of the questions from the budding palaeontologists who visited the “Dino zone”.

Many of the visitors took the opportunity to take part in the Dino zone science trail.  Boards and posters that had been prominently positioned across the well organised site provided the answers, but as we carried a couple of the quiz forms around we were stopped on a couple of occasions and asked to help out with the answers.  Wearing a shirt displaying the Everything Dinosaur logo, we tend to get stopped quite a bit at these sorts of events, all part of the job of being science communicators as we try to explain how the Cretaceous mass extinction came about or how Pterosaurs were able to take to the skies.

Some of the volunteers who were overseeing the science discovery trail were curious to find out more about dinosaurs themselves and we explained how most palaeontologists now accept that a large number of the Dinosauria, at least the Theropods were feathered.  Our knowledge of the Velociraptorinae came in handy too, with a quick bit of dinosaur claw identification, my how we love looking at manual unguals or indeed, pedal unguals (claws of the hand and claws of the foot respectively).

In the Dino zone we came across a beautiful Edmontosaurus annectens exhibit.  We spotted some interesting pathology (note the missing neural spines).  Fortunately, the very clever and talented scientists from the University of Manchester were more than happy to discuss what we had seen.  A special thanks to PhD student Jennifer ‘Indy’ Anné, a specialist in palaeopathology who helped us clear up our queries related to the shape and position of the fourth trochanter in tyrannosaurids.

Our congratulations to the organisers, sponsors, volunteers and to all involved in making the Times Cheltenham Science Festival such a successful event.

One Week to “Jurassic World”

Countdown to “Jurassic World”

Not long to go now before the worldwide release of the film “Jurassic World”.  Team members at Everything Dinosaur are very excited about this and over the last few weeks and months we have been posting up various items of information, news snippets and of course the trailers related to this, the fourth film in the Jurassic Park movie franchise.  Hopefully we have not leaked too many spoilers and we are all looking forward to seeing the film, along with millions of other dinosaur fans.

 We promise not to blog about plot details and to give away too many details about particular scenes in the film.  We shall have to tread a careful path between not spoiling the film for those people who have not seen it and those readers who have requested that we comment on an aspect of this blockbuster.  Please go with us on this, naturally as the weeks and months pass, we can include more information as there is a greater likelihood that the majority of our readers will have watched the film.

Everything Dinosaur Publishes Blog Article Number 3,000

Everything Dinosaur Writes 3,000 Blog Articles

It feels like we started this blog sometime back in the Pleistocene Epoch, but that’s not quite the case, the first articles were published in May 2007 and now some eight years later, today, we publish article number 3,000!  Team members at Everything Dinosaur try to put up an article every day, this can be quite a tough ask but given the speed of developments in palaeontology, the wealth of new fossil finds plus of course, our own adventures, there has never been a shortage of things to write about.  A big thank you to the millions of viewers and all those who have re-pinned, shared and tweeted our content, this really means a lot to us.

Celebrating Article Number 3,000 on the Everything Dinosaur Blog

Celebrating our 3,000th blog post.

Celebrating our 3,000th blog post.

The aims of our humble web log have not changed since we started.  We try to write articles using non-technical language that inform readers about the latest dinosaur and prehistoric animal research.  In addition, we act as a source of information for new fossil finds and updates on fossil hunting expeditions.  Our blog has proved to be a useful resource for dinosaur fans and model collectors as we have published quite a lot of information about new products and ranges coming to the market.  From the feedback we receive, we are also aware of the number of teachers, teaching assistants and home educationalists who regular visit our blog site and use the information we provide for lesson plans and other educational activities.  With this blog and our sister site (Dinosaurs for Schools), Everything Dinosaur has built up quite a following from primary and secondary school teachers.

The Everything Dinosaur blog is getting to be quite a sizeable beast, for example, much bigger than a Dreadnoughtus, a huge, long-necked dinosaur from Argentina, that we discussed on this web log back in September 2014.  If you were to print out all our articles out onto A4-sized paper and lay them end to end, then this paper chain would stretch for approximately 750 metres.  Or to put it another way, in terminology that dinosaur fans might appreciate, our printed out blog would stretch the length of twenty-seven Diplodocus dinosaurs.

To read the article on Dreadnoughtus: A Little Detail on a Great Big Dreadnoughthus

If we were to try to print out our entire blog, even on our biggest, fastest printer, we estimate that to produce all the articles, it would take over two days.  That’s a lot of time standing around the printer!

Given the amount of correspondence we receive from collectors, schoolchildren and delighted parents, we could quite easily post up pictures, drawings, photographs of fossils and such like several times a day, but for the time being, we shall have to limit ourselves to the single post.  However, please be assured, we respond to all those correspondents who require a reply, just as we read all the blog comments from our readers on this site.

On behalf of everyone at “Everything” we would like to say a really big thank you to all our readers.

The Growth Spurts of Indominus rex

The Prehistoric Animals of “Jurassic World” – The Rapid Growth of Indominus rex

There are only another twenty-three days to wait before the movie “Jurassic World” opens at cinemas.  To say that this film has been eagerly awaited is a bit of an understatement, we expect things to reach fever pitch over the next three weeks or so.  In this febrile atmosphere, team members wanted to comment on an aspect of the movie, the fourth in the “Jurassic Park” franchise, that has not been discussed to any great degree.  Now we know this is pure science fiction, the extraction of ancient DNA from amber (or copal, the pre-cursor to amber for that matter), is extremely controversial but if we take all this with a pinch of salt, what gets us is the phenomenal growth rate of the genetically engineered dinosaurs.

Take for example, the new hybrid dinosaur developed by those scientists formerly of InGen and now working for the Masrani Corporation (the fictional conglomerate which owns and runs “Jurassic World”).

Fearsome “super-beast” Indominus rex

The hybrid dinosaur.

The growth rate for this hybrid dinosaur, which seems to be made up of a variety of Theropod dinosaurs as well as genetic material from a number of extant creatures, is phenomenal.  In trailers released to promote “Jurassic World”, Dr. Wu the leading geneticist behind the development of this new type of prehistoric animal, states that this dinosaur was designed to be “bigger than a T. rex.“.  In the film, it is believed to be around twelve metres long, a fraction smaller than an adult female Tyrannosaurus rex.

If the project to develop a genetically modified dinosaur was only given the go ahead sometime in 2012, this new species exhibits an accelerated growth rate.  It seems to have grown much more rapidly than any other large Theropod.  It was Masrani’s Chief Executive Officer, Simon Masrani, who announced that the company had been able to successfully engineer a new species, but that was only last year, so within twelve months the subject of this project has developed into a very big animal indeed!

At Everything Dinosaur, we have attempted to map the growth rate of Indominus rex against that of Tyrannosaurus rex.  This work is highly speculative, but we have tried to postulate the growth rates based on the timeline stated by Masrani Corporation and plotted this against the postulated growth rate for a large tyrannosaurid based on the current research.  At least in terms of growth rate, this is a no contest, I. rex wins hands down (or should that be claws down)?

Comparing the Growth Rates of Indominus rex and Tyrannosaurus rex

I. rex versus T. rex growth rates.

I. rex versus T. rex growth rates.

Quite a bit of research has been conducted on the ontogeny (growth) of dinosaurs, such as Late Cretaceous Theropods, an example being Tyrannosaurus rex.  It has been suggested that T. rex did not reach adult size until it got to its twenties.  It may even have had a growth spurt in its teenage years just like us humans.  Compare this to the genetic dinosaur hybrid Indominus rex, it reaches twelve metres in length in the summer of 2015, that means in three years or so it has had a spectacular growth spurt.

How we love the movies!  Of course, this is a science fiction film, the writers and film makers can do what they want, after all, it’s only CGI.  If they want a phenomenally quick growing dinosaur, then that is their prerogative.  When did science actually get in the way of a good film?

We suspect that I. rex will meet its demise at the end of the picture.  Not that we know anything, but just like the “raptors” in the first “Jurassic Park” film (1993),who were about to attack Dr. Grant and company, when a bigger predator intervened,  we suspect that another dinosaur might be responsible for the extinction of Indominus rex.

We shall have to wait and see…

As for certification, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), has given “Jurassic World” a 13 certificate for it contains “intense sequences of science-fiction violence and peril.”   We are not sure about the UK certification (British Board of Film Classification), but we would expect this film to have a 12A certificate.

Everything Dinosaur’s #VoteDinosaur Competition Ends

Win a Dinosaur Soft Toy Competition Ends

Over the last month or so, Everything Dinosaur has been running a competition to win a dinosaur soft toy on this blog site and our accompanying Facebook page.  Just as we promised when we started our #votedinosaur contest back in April, the competition would close when the polls closed at 10pm BST on Thursday May 7th (the same time as the polls shut in the UK General Election).

We had seven candidates, having tried to represent the leaders of the seven main political parties with a dinosaur soft toy.  Each soft toy dinosaur being in the colours of the respective political party.  The voting was tight with lots of votes for “Nigel” our purple Triceratops and for “Nick” our yellow Velociraptor, but in the end there was almost a dead heat between “Ed” our red Spinosaurus and “Dave” our blue T. rex.

With the polls closed it was simply a question of ensuring that all the entrants were placed in our “ballot box” and a lucky winner being drawn out at random.  This person has subsequently been sent a message on Facebook to let them know that they have won a soft toy dinosaur.

As for the result of our #votedinosaur poll, here is our very own version of the “state of the parties” after our dinosaur election.

Heading for a Hung Parliament?

Our Returning Officer “Tyrannosaurus Sue” stated:

“I want to take this opportunity to congratulate the winner of the dinosaur soft toy, we will get this sent out as quickly as we can.  In addition, I want to thank everyone who took part, who shared our posts and liked Everything Dinosaur’s Facebook page.”
