Yeah but according to all stas, not even joe bloggs is buying very much, is he?

So far the stats here and on the iStock thread seem to indicate vastly improved sales on iStock compared to last Feb. The only person so far who has reported being really down compared to last Feb has only added c20 files to his/her port in the past year, (though that is almost 10% of their port).

Really?  This must be for exclusives.  I'm 23% down from last year on Istock, and as I recall, there were some other posts from high canister non-exclusives that posted similar losses.

Did you see the time I posted that, and posted 'so far'.  ;)

And things went more or less downhill from that point forward ;) . The pattern is always the same, first page consist of mostly positive reports, then we see a mixture of reports, but usually most of them report falling sales

Really? I'm seeing more positive than negative, even on the last page. Maybe I have my rose-colored glasses on?

Just wait for it ;). That being said, I'd like for this threads to turn for the better.

OK then, I'll do my part. I don't normally post numbers, but I had by far my best Feb every. Up 44% from last year.

Just noticed that my own port's best match is different in FF logged-in and in Chrome logged out, so I tried some random sitewide searches and found the same, though to a lesser extent.

In what way?

The order of the pictures is subtly to quite different.
What other way would be possible?

Anyone else getting only XS sales today? Besides number of DLs is barely half of yesterday's, I hope at least the number of DLs catches up, if the file sizes won't...

No - today is a surprisingly good day - (a) much less sucky on the download front (b) lots of larger sizes (half of sales are Large or bigger) and (c) an extended license this morning.
