I am speculating here, it seems to be a pattern for me, after a good day, there will be a slow day; vise versa.

Yeah, same here. Good days, bad days. Always been a bit like that for me, though there seem to be more quiet days lately. (Obviously)Seems worse when there are a lot of small or xsmall sales in the day.

So how is February going for everyone? Excellent sales in January are continuing into February in my case. I have noticed its mainly new files that are selling.

Certainly it could be better, but not bad.

Sales are below average overall here. some days are fine, then others are terrible. the files selling are a very weird mix, lots of old with first downloads. they're clearly fumbling around with the collections.

Don't you think it's absurd doing that with a woman present ? ;D

This week, I simply don't get any DLs in the afternoon. Does it happen to anyone else?

Yeah all over the place for me too - last couple of days have been low on DL numbers, but had 2 ELs on the 7th worth $137 that made the days totals look good.

I'm not having a miserable week, but sales this week at SS about 30% down, compared to the last few. And I've been constantly uploading for a month. Elsewhere the volume is just too low to make accurate calculations, but aside from DT which is a but slow, sales are normal, I'd say

Oh.  My bad.  I thought you were fantasizing - didn't realize Beyonce was actually there.    :D

Back on topic (sort of), your fantasy life is a lot more active than my istock sales have been Wut.   ;)

Urrghh. I'd 'label' you as that from your posts alone __ it doesn't need any help from Lisa.

Well if it actually was, I sure wouldn't go through all that trouble getting her there and than just do what I can anyway, without any hassle whatsoever ;D . Besides I was just talking about how I felt about getting 200cr and 125 cr ELs in a matter of days. Ah you girls and your dirty minds :P

You have to do something in the absence of sales ;)

I have learned to love your honesty...particularly when it isn't directed at me ;-)

It is good fun, it really is, I'm enjoying it. KKT was right, money is not what makes us happy (anymore)

Just noticed that there appears to have been a massive further shift in the best match to favour exclusives __ it is now almost entirely exclusive images first followed by those from independent contributors afterwards. Incredible.

Istock must be getting desperate to hang on to their exclusives and/or make more money.

Wont matter when they get sold this year. What if is gets worse with the new owner.

I don't think a new owner could actually make things 'worse'. From the data I'm collecting I do believe that Istock's sales have been absolutely plummeting since the great RC debacle of Sept 2010 __ and there's no sign of that trend stopping any time soon either. The scale of the decline is absolutely staggering IMHO. Unless someone at Istock does something pretty dam* quick there won't actually be much left to buy within a couple more years.

Care to share your source or figures? I'm not calling you out, I suspect the same thing but have nothing to confirm it.

Nobody has crap to confirm crap.  It is all speculation based on IS behaviors, much of the speculation of which simply infers that doom and gloom will happen.  Maybe it will and maybe it won't.  Keep on truckin!!
