Sorry to hear. Mine has been in recession from the day I started uploading. LOL

I'm seeing the opposite.  DP is running just behind 123RF this month.  That puts it in third place, way ahead of iStock in fourth.

Had a slow Nov. and now equally slow Dec. But once again, it is normally very port dependent and you will probably get just as many contributors in disorderly's camp.

DP has been rising very nicely for me all year, and then I also saw a significant drop ever since Dec 5.  I figured it could be  a best match shift, and if my guess were right, I'd see others talking about it here. 

Anyone else seeing Nov 30 listed as the first day of Dec and today is called Dec 6?  It hasn't always been this way, has it?  Is it me?

thats concerning for a portfolio with so many downloads in a short period of time, I don't see it but I had only 82 downloads in November

Download frequency varies.  If you are getting an average of 50 downloads a day, and the next day you get zero, I'd question it.  But there are ups and downs ALL THE TIME in MS, across all sites, and in all countries.

Of course, you need a sample that's a high volume to make a valid comparison.  How about averaging $25 on weekdays to averaging $12 on weekdays?  That's a statistically significant drop that suggests something is going on.

So on short term (day-to-day) inconsistency is the norm, right Mr. mantis.  ;)

Well, you have to look at your own port, your selling activity, trends, etc to make that call.  But if I am averaging 50 dl a day at ss and tomorrow it's zero, then, yes, I'd be concerned but may wait several more days to see if it's corrected itself.  It doesn't mean I'd paint doom and gloom, rather it means that I am going to keep a close eye on my sales and respond accordingly when/if I have enough data points to justify it.

You are same in my case and I noticed calendar problem(30 November starts for December's first day) too.

But the selling problem seems abnormal, it is not like normal fluctuation in MS sector.
Thanks for all information.

Getting woozy, but only from your posts.  Keep talking and I will find that little hole in the pillow

Probably something a little to strong in your bottle and now our little man is acting nasty. Must be a close relative of Chris or use the same bottle.
PS Bad news, that woozyness is probably permanent in your case.
