Is that response in English? It makes no sense to me.

I think it is supposed to read like this:

At least when you check twice a day and have to add the stupid captcha you get to see sales.  I don't exist at 123. My account is at 90 cents for the month!

How where your sales before? I questioned my low sales this month (from a BME last month) in another post and every one made me feel like I am the only exception..... ???

Admittedly, very bad.  123 used to bring in between 2-4% of my overall earnings but since June they have made way less than 1% each month.  Last month I had 25 sales but the RPD was $0.367 which doesn't add up to much at all.  So I'm really glad some people are successful there.  I love the fact that they are climbing the ranking, even though I don't understand how.  I am a huge fangirl of DT and SS though, RPD at DT is over $5 this month.

On the up side, you guys/ladies are at least making me feel better with my meager income from them this month (at least I am over the $3 mark at this stage - quite a bit to go to last month's $34)!  ::)

Now I'm not only having to enter the captcha code, I'm getting logged out between visits. Every site has its trouble vs worth ratio, and this one is sliding quickly toward the wrong end of the scale.

This Captcha is definitely a nuisance although I understand where 123rf is coming from. Sept was my BME but Oct has started really weak. Wonder if it has anything to do with the rather annoying captcha? I imagine 123rf buyers have to go through the Captcha verification as well when they log in and if indeed so, that might be have been frustrating to the buyers and deter them from coming to the site often for the downloads.

Alex, Anglee, what about putting captcha not on the entry login/landing page but on the second level pages where earnings/downloads etc are located for contributors?

I can't believe they make buyers do the captcha thing, they might as well just give up if that is the case.

As implemented now, I must say SS's captcha is way way less of a pain. Basically every time I go to 123RF I have to deal with the captcha and since it is random you have to carefully make sure you have every letter and number right - as opposed to the SS captcha which is longer but usually close to real words.

I hope they don't consider this a definitive solution . It would be a big turnoff
On top of the captcha now my downloads page updates a day or two after the earnings sheet .
While they're fixing this they should consider a complete overhaul of the contributor's interface - as it is now it looks clunky and rudimentary . Look at DP for example - sure they don't have the same load as 123rf but their site is fast , clean and easy to use .

Sales have basically stopped the last 2 days, so maybe they do all to captcha.

Tonight I could accept the new agreement, but to look at my stats I had to log in and captcha. Making less sense.

Hi Alex

Thank you for the feedback. Have you considered that the site might have been attacked by malware or hackers (like microstockgroup did)? I know of at least one other site which also suddenly started having "server problems" at the same time as you started experiencing problems.
Interesting about the sales, as a number of us has experienced substantial drop in sales since the captcha was introduced (you can check my stats).

Looking forward to the updated site, the news will hopefully calm a lot of nerves here!

Alex, the providers of analysis tools are not contacting you because they're simply displaying a little window with 123rf's captcha, it's programmable. Then they go and fetch all the data they need.

And hate to pile on, but the day view isn't working any more - that's why I thought I had no sales. If I pick October and scroll to the bottom, I have sales today. If I pick the 13, it shows I have no sales.

Also, captcha may not affect sales, but I had more sales on Sunday than the rest of the week put together. On track for worst month in over a year.

Is it possible for 123Rf to send out an email to those contrib who want it when an image is sold. This would stop me checking the earnings on a regular basis and therefore reduce server load ??

Lots of other sites do this and I prefer it.
