Have you tried asking the high flyers whose dls are dropping by over 20%?

I only associate with high fliers who can maintain their dls ...

Oh good. If my dls go down, you can get off my back.
There's always an upside.

It's endearing that you think of yourself as a high flier, got to love that hubris :-)

Bronze exclusive here. My sales are very low compared with previous months. Almost half now. Not good.
You also have to compare with previous Januarys, as January 'tends' on average to be a quieter month than Oct - Dec. (Of course, there will always be exceptions).
I seem to be about neck and neck with last Jan so far, but with over 1/3 more images than I had then.
My Jan 2010 was down 20%, almost to the cent, compared to Jan 2009.
Well, if I compare it with my previous january then my $ is up sth like 100%. Well, that's great. However that comes from new royalty percentage (30% instead of 25%) mostly. My portfolio growth and the download numbers aren't matching up actually. I will update this at the end of the month.

Is she? I wouldn't know, I really don't follow celebrity news. I'm not a fan either - as long as her booty doesn't count ;) . To get back on topic, it would only be worth if she broke it because her ass got twice as big ;D

Did anyone else have an abysmal Friday? My sales were at about 20% of a usual day. It looks like there's been another best match shift, but can't see that much change...

Considering how dismal my sales have been the last few months I would gladly take that middle finger.   ;)

Average for me, however I got a P+ XXXL, I don't get many of those...

I've noticed another pattern; Mondays are usually the best days of the week past these last few months...

A normal Friday here.

I had a zero sale Wednesday (Feb 1).  Unheard of in my for for many years.

Friday was about the new normal here.

Thanks for the responses! Fortunately it seems that whatever was affecting sales on Friday seems to have changed. Maybe it was just a freakish day, but I ended up with more sales on Sunday, and Monday was back to about the usual level with about 5x the number of sales.

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.

A ton of DLs today (by my standards of course), but only S and M DLs, so just above average when it comes to earnings. Average month so far as well.

Terrible for me today. The wheel of fortune is running against me (exclusive).

It has been a month of variability for me. Last week was 3 good days and two terrible days. This week has had one good day (yesterday) and one bad day (today) so far. All in all still up on 2011 at the same time, but DLs only on par with 2010 (money is well up though).

You know what, you and I seem to have similar good and bad days. We must belong to the same best match batch.

I'm experiencing the same. One terrific day and one or two sub par days and the cycle repeats. If it stays like that I guess it creates a better estimate of sales than a completely random download number like before.
