To me, there are likely two reasons - 1. summer slowdown; and (2) database tweak/glitch as a result of the price increase.

It's starting to look more and more, that I was just on a hot streak and that yesterday's low sales are going to continue. Just 1 DL so far today :o . So much for my dreams of exclusivity

welcome to the joys of IS best match changes.

Uncle Rob called it Ebb and Flow.

And run by ding and dong!

I have thrown in the towel. I have gone from making a couple payouts a month (sometimes more) to only getting one DL so far this month.
This entire year thus far has been horrible.
Today I dropped exclusivity. I'm not submitting any more, I don't have the time or the inclination.

From last Sunday until yesterday it was depressing. Now it's going very well; in fact, yesterday was like an EL, Vetta and E+ festival, problably BDE. I can't understand such a volatility.

I'll PM you his profile. He could be lying of course, posting he became BD 3 months ago and he's now over 250k

Yeah, maybe on that one.  He's very 'inspired' by others' successes.  More than me - I'm only doing about half that.

We should really ban Chris ::)

Stock is not about making good money but complaining about commission cuts, bad search engines, site bugs, low sales, absurd reviews or cheering penny sales!
Leaf has even told me he is going change the sitename pretty soon.

I haven't heard anyone complain about earnings/best match in a while. Looks like everyone is doing great :) . It's so nice to see some positivity around here for a change (lack of negativity is telling a story)

Wait until the June sales threads. Maybe we're all too beaten down.

I think you're reading way too much into silence.

Having had a few really good weeks on iStock, they appear just about dead this week. But it's June and this time of year is typically a bit quieter - I'm sure they'll decided to "improve" search right around the fall busy season and you'll see plenty of complaints surface then :)

It looks like I am in a very down cycle much like about 3 months ago.  I suspect all of the variables of the best match have aligned against me again.

Has anybody felt any change in the sales pattern from today (tuesday 17th) on, compared with the first half of the month? My sales number dropped significantly. Almost every month I see the same happening. Middle of the month some stuff happens and DLs increase or decrease.

Nope!  no change and there wont be any. They are hard up as it is, trying to satisfy the few remaining exclusives, pissed off up to their teeth.

Nothing new here either.  July has been absolutely pitiful, but no more or less pitiful this week than the last two.

My first two weeks of July were so bad that I am actually longing for a best match shift.
