wow! Are the stars falling or what? Seems like a low sales virus bug is hitting all sites  :-[

Summer, plus World Cup, plus this Friday is July 4 holiday in the US.  Will be a slow week, I think.

Decreasing trend in june for me - but it's football world cup - may be that's the reason?
Do most creatives stop work during the World Cup? I've seen that suggested in another thread too - would be very surprising if so - as though clients would hang around for a month in limbo.

Sue, maybe there are not the most creative people who normally buy my images ?  8)

It's June - summer is often a slow time.

My 123rf sales so far (and June isn't quite over) are ahead of last June, though down from May. Again, that's what I expect based on typical patterns for me.

Yep.... sales going down here too! The last two weeks I had problems to log in on the site and I'm probabely not the only one, sellers won't get in either!

The last year 123RF promissed us increasing sales, better % earnings etc but nothing happened. In fact, they killed one of their easiest to use marketing tools: the free image section. Before, it was possible to give them away for a day or more and you could easily select them from all files you donated before.
In their new system, the shortest period is 10 days and selection is harder, not to mention it is much more work to add new images to your "free selection section". I wrote them several times about this issue but still no proper answer and no change of system ofcourse.
What do they expect? Expect a huge increase in your portfolio exposure! Increase your sales!! Sell higher resolution images! Since the introduction of the new free image system I haven't sold more hr images and it takes soooo much time to get them donated for free.

Let's hope someone from 123RF reads our issues and complaints and will do something. Afterall, it's US who generate their profit!

So.... I start to upload photo to microstock in the Feb 2014.
So.... I had no sence about "the gold time".
but I have about 900 photos and 20 vectors on 123rf, and there are only 2 or 4 sales per month.

Already several days cannot see site with Firefox. Asked them to check - redirect error, language problem. Buyers too probably think that they are down. How many of them thought to change a browser? Anyway IE is terrible for autologin.

I've never had any issues with FF there.
And June was the best month this year for me, July seems to be even better (so far) :)

Is it a software or a webpage app?
I want to use it.
