I used to sell every month on Photodune and last month when I checked the stats i saw 0 sales and almost all my portoflio deleted, noly 5 images are remaining without previous advert, including the good sellers items !
Is it a joke, a hack or are they going totally mad in this website ?
I've sent a request and i've got this stupid reply :

"I looked into this and it seems like you have not sold any items in June. I'm sorry to hear about the recent drop in your sales. There are always fluctuations, but overall marketplace health is very good.
Buyer trends, tastes, and the competition available are all fluid targets, but it's what drives this quick evolving world of digital sales. (If it was easy, everyone would do it, right?)
It's hard to really pinpoint what causes downturns. If we knew that, we would definitely share it so you could take advantage of buyer needs.
I would focus on continuing to make a name for yourself, supporting buyers, and releasing updates and brand new items. It all helps, even little by little!
I hope that helps, please hang in there!"
Is it a robot or a human behind these sentences ? How can a professional site can be so inconsistent and outrageous ? Does they contest with Getty to win the price of the best photography crooks of the year ?

PD recently went in a new direction. One of the things they did was delete images. Many HIGH END content accounts purged.  No contributor had any say. They reviewed your portfolio and if it did not fit their new ELEMENTS model criteria, they deleted your images. If you were 'lucky' enough to not have all of your images deleted, you made it into ELEMENTS (their new model). You say ALMOST.  That infers that you have remaining images. Probably they want to keep what you have left and include them in their new collection. You should have received emails from them telling you that they deleted XXX from your port.  For me I had 3800 images there and now I have a couple of hundred.  I haven't done anything with Elements, not uploaded to PD's new model, nothing.  Too confusing for this simple mind and I really don't understand what they are doing or how I can make any money with just a couple hundred images.  There are a couple of threads here talking more about this move.  In a nutshell, most contributors had their full ports deleted.

Ah ah ah, oh thanks, i was in travel at this time !
oooohh they can wait for centuries before I start uploading even a photo of dust, that's totally a silly move, i wasn't a big sellers there, but i sold regularly each month from 30 to 70 $, if they deleted thousands of equivalent portfolio, it's a big loss for them .
Im going to delete the 5 left and closing my account then send a goodbye to these stupid crooks .

Yes, they were on the edge of the abyss and they made a big step forward
