I also think old dashboard was better - more information in less space.
I don't need an image thumbnail of the set. All time earnings don't add any value to me, can't save the chart settings to default, they removed earning from new content - which was useful to me. Map is ok, I'm sometimes surprised to see sales from certain places, but also if I wouldn't know I would be fine.

I also don't like new earnings page - too many clicks to see what you want.

Kate to SS management, "Many contributors complain that new design is inconvenient."
SS management, "What is design?"
Kate to SS management, "New earning table is inconvenient."
SS management; "It`s okay, will get used!"

I used to like seeing everything I had sold in one day on one page.  No idea why they would make it worse than it was?  Hope they see sense and scrap the new look.  They usually improve things but this time they have made it much worse.

Am I the only one that could care less about the map? It is just a pointless gimmick. I guess if you only make one or two sales a day it could be fun to see where those people are from. As a useful tool to help me run my business it is utterly pointless.
I agree, they could put it on a separate page for those that want it.

So, I had SOD sale today and I noticed thumb has blue edge on a map, while sub sales have grey edge. Is that new or just didn't notice before?

I think the most recent thumb is blue bordered - the one with the location listed.

In other news after using the new pages for a bit I find it hard to believe they actually consulted any users about this. There are so many things I'd have done differently and I can't believe that most others would want the info they put at the top to be at the top. Someone posted the old page and it was just so much better. Sure they improved a few things, but for the most part it was a step backwards in terms of information and useability.

Correct.
I think that the idea of the new dashboard is to constantly remind us ungrateful peasants just how much we have earned in our lifetime with Shutterstock (hence the largest size font) and to distract us from the more recent earnings decline that many have complained about.  :-\

Dunno whether that worked or didn't work when last seen....now it's completely disappeared with the new layout. Sorry....found it. Go to 'Earnings' in the new dashboard and click on 'delayed earnings'. Hover mouse over earnings and you'll get current month earnings with dl's and followers. First I had zero followers, then it jumped to 6 and sometime last year it went to 7 where it remained since then.

Did anyone notice that they took away the copyright line when they changed the image page? It's now "By so-and-so" instead of "Copyright so-and-so."

must be a new trend...I just visited another website who has a "new and improved design"...it's a mess too. An example: you can set your account to auto renew. If you dont want it to auto renew, wouldnt you think the button would say "manually renew" or maybe "auto renewal off"? No, it says "Cancels". Good grief, its like everything's a trick and convoluted just to confuse people.

Oh, my. If one read it very attentively and slowly:
"As you know, we are investing heavily in upgrading the technology... These back-end upgrades...improved functionality...new features and innovations...
As part of this this investment you will begin to see changes... The update provides a visual refresh, and highlights the totals our contributors use the most.
This update is a part of a larger set of changes well be rolling out in the coming weeks and months..............."
The worse is still coming. So good that it isn't infectious!

I do not like the new design either

1. I can not see all daily sales on one page as I could before. Very frustrating

2. I can not order downloads by ID. This is important for me.

1 - I'dlike to see thumbnail of "not yet submit" and "waiting approval" section on the contributor dashbord. The same as active image ... 3 thumbnail at least.
2 - same thing with the video, on the same pannel as the images. Additional resources don't need to be this big at the left.
3 - I'd like to see daily earning on the dashboard
4 - switch the frame of the map with the earning type section.
5 - Sets don't need thumbnail

Tha's how I see the dashboard from my contributor eye ! It's not bad but it need few changes.

How do you like the new dashboard on isuck? If the SS tables are terrible what's isucks a total disaster area?

Yes I like the way you put it, instead of the negative complaining. SS gave us more data and more information and new pages. Now it needs to be improved and made better. More than a few improvements, but the fact that it's changed and getting better, means there's room to improve, not some old page with lack of details.

Let the past be the past and focus on what is ahead. Don't forget what history has taught us, but also don't be stuck or dwell there.

This is new and better, people should stop picking and fault finding and maybe appreciate that the agency is trying to make the reporting better!
