I think you have made your point so they are dead....isn't time to come to terms with your grief and move on?

Glad to know that DT is slightly alive after all!  (They are hanging in there for me, although all dead the past few days).

All agencies are completely dead. There is 0% reason for anyone to continue to upload videos or photos. To do so is a complete waste of time and money

After a long downward slither, my sales have suddenly slumped by about 80% over the last 6 weeks. I have no idea what's happening. Everywhere else is pretty grim too.
Which in cash terms translates into about a 99% fall compared with the peak, a decade ago.

I am reporting it as it is. What do you want me to do, lie and say sales are great and consistent ?

I just checked my DT numbers and I am at $12 for the month.  They are pacing right at Canstock levels and 123 is right there.  So the evolution is sort of interesting.

Monthly 123 3 years ago: $200
Monthly DT 3 years ago: $160
Monthly CanStockPhoto 3 years ago: $20

Monthly 123 today: $30
Monthly DT today: $25
Monthly CanStockPhoto today: $20

That's my evolution.  It's unfortunate but reality.

because contributors sell the same images elsewhere cheaper?  because other agencies are heavy into discounting chasing market share?

Right, and because the top agencies spend money on marketing and SEO.  :) DT just wants to sue Google for bad placement in the search and if they cash in, they can check out.

Honestly I think as an agency they are doing much better than:

MotionElements
Dissolve
SignElements
PhotoCase
Zoonar
ColourBox
PhotoSpin
Indivstock
Pixta
PantherMedia
ScanStockPhoto
Stockfresh
Macrografiks
DrawShop
ClipDealer
Stocksy
YayMicro
ImageVortex
Clipcanvas
Crestock
SuperImageMarket
PressFoto
Cutcaster
ViscoImages
FeaturePics
PicFair
GLStock
Stockami

Not better than:

ClipartOf
GettyImages
Envato
Canva
EyeEm
Self-Hosted
500px
VectorStock
storyblocks
MostPhotos

But those don't get the 50 votes required.

So that makes DT about #16 or 17 on the earnings list.

Look at it this way, Mostphotos makes the same average return. How sad is that? Equal to Mostphotos is a tragic fall.

The old story!  the boss Achilles left or sold out and along comes the sheit trying to govern an agency!

For me they are about 8 but once you go away from the top three these days its marginal.
