I have not noticed yesterday's sales added today, but I can only say that yesterday was 50% less for dwn compared with to 2 days ago and 65% for $ less than 2 days ago....

I believe that today will end badly, like yesterday. ???

Any progress - maybe its paranoia, but I'm starting to wonder if uploading a lot is actually hurting total sales - I notice some of those complaining most are also uploading the most content. From my end its looking bad again today after a decent weekend and ok monday.

Yesterday was my second-best day of the year for DLs, though not for $$$, but today I'm having my third successive Terrible Tuesday. All in all, though, I'm ahead of last August for $$$ already. But I will never forget my 'lost 5%' - I should be doing better.

It's like somebody put an embargo on my photos; no sales today, just one yesterday, looks like they're constantly leveling the field. Are they trying to give everybody a chance, lol ?

I spotted a couple of best match searches where it wasn't the same old, same old at the top, but new low-selling files. These were 'less popular' search terms. Certainly in some of my usual tests, it's the same V/A at the top. But maybe they're trying out different BMs.

Indeed, but some are going up and down a few dozen dollar, some tens of thousands of dollars. I know what most of you are thinking right now, but it really probably is just the opposite from what I'm thinking ;) . Because I think the latter have absolutely nothing to complain ;) . I'd absolutely enjoy saying every month I went down 40/20/80k from previous month.

I'm just a bronze, lately not even getting over 100 DLs/month. Meaning I get even less than usually, contrary to those that have already made millions and don't really need the cash (unless they're super greedy), it's probably just a prestige thing for them, a game, driven by high ambition :) . Of course I'm getting a bit off topic, just pointing out, whining from superstars is absurd (but of course we need their stats since they're the most representative). The bottom line is, things are really bad lately, especially since it looked like I'm going to have a BME by a large margin

Sorry, where are the "whining superstars"?  I don't see any really big players around here other than Sean, and he's not much into whining. 

I like to whine, and I am one of the bigger selling independents on Istock, but my numbers are nowhere near 80/40/20k per month.  Much less "millions".   

Out of curiosity, how unsuccessful, low-producing, lazy, or just plain untalented does one have to be to justify "whining" in your opinion?

That's pretty level compared to my up and downs, in relative terms.

1. Everywhere, in so many threads at MSG. Also at agency's forums, just read the threads about monthly earnings ;)

2. I never said I was talking about you, now you've just made it clear ;) .

3. I guess you missed what I wrote in parenthesis. Of course you can be rude to us, incompetent low earners. Like (you think) I was towards big sellers. Fair enough, I don't mind it at all ;)

I think its you being rude. You come to this forum anonymously, ask the questions that have been asked a million times, complain about the standard problems newbs complain about (oh no SS is rejecting my stuff - for example), don't listen to advice that's given because you already know it and then talk about some mysterious established contributors as "whining". At the same time its clear to al of those that have been here more than 5 minutes that you're someone who hasn't got a clue, doesn't have the sense to realise that and or to stop and think before you post.

Ever wondered why 19 people are ignoring you in the less than 12 months you've been here?

I haven't, nor do I care ;) . Isn't it logical I'm asking questions if I'm clueless? Well it's not worth it, you don't seem to be the sharpest knife in the drawer ;)

You're right. It's absurd. It must be a mistake and/or they really don't have a clue what they're doing. Another gift to SS and the others.

Looks terrible. A lot of very, very old and ugly files, images I was going to deactivate all in front.

I hope it looks better in the morning.
