I'm at 30% of May. Looking at the trends of the last few months I should be at least at 50%. But as I've always said, I couldn't care less about DT, they bring me only 5% of my total earnings

Way, WAY down this month, last month was by far BME.

"Inconsistency" seems to be the word to describe Microstock lately (sales and reviews)

It's a rollercoaster!

If you discard the data from the top 2, then yes.

I was under the impression that you thought reviews inconsistent in 50% of the top 2???    ;)

Reviews yes, earnings no ;)

For the first 12 days of June vs the first 12 days of May, I'm up about 10%.

BUT...

First 12 days of June 2012 vs first 12 of June 2011... DOWN ABOUT 12%. 

Every other top or mid tier agency is up a healthy margin for me from 2012 to 2011.  DT is the ONLY one in the red.

They are holding steady for me.  So far this year every month has been higher than the monthly average for last year and last month was a BME.  The higher RPD is keeping revenue higher even though number of sales is down.  This year they have made up a little under 9% of all earnings, in 4th place overall.  But I agree that inconsistency is the key word - DT and CS have the highest variance in earnings for me.  Over the past six months my earnings at DT have varied more than 7 fold.  I just hope their business model is sustainable and the decent earnings continue.

I've had 4 sales in June, two were subs.  This is the worst ever for me.  Everyone doesn't seem to be affected - there is nothing in the forum.

This thread indicates I'm not being overly critical.

Ditto the same here. Much will depend on your portfolio and subject matter but during my first six months with DT sales increased as my portfolio increased....the way it should be. The past three or four months everything has changed. My portfolio is growing yet sales have completely tanked. Very discouraging.

Who is going to start the thread in the DT forum?  Or have they deleted all the threads?

Not me, I'm not banned, but I think it would be pointless.

Just like it's pointless to continue a relationship with them if we only reach payout every 3 years.  Well, I am exagerrating at 3 years.  It would be about 5 years if they keep payout at $100 and this month becomes new norm.   I'll give them the weekend to see what it looks like before I turn into a crybaby on their forum.

DT now represents about 4% of our income (Minerva Studio).
And we only upload to 5 agencies, one of which is completely automatized (Bigstock via Bridge).
That's quite junky.

Hi. I haven't had a single download in over 2 weeks. I heard there was something messed up with the search results so other images got in front of the buyers. Is this fixed now? Im having no activity at all over there? How is is for you?

Same for me... I do not have any sale for more than one month :(

I don't use their forums at all and still have managed to sell, so I hope it is just a coincidence.

Serban once said the forum presence was a factor in the best match.

I'm sure he meant kissing up to them in the forum was a factor in the best match. I doubt the posts I've made recently have done me any good.

In April I made a lot of posts, mostly venting about at the new commission structure etc. Turned out to be a good month. There are many other things I can complain about, so I might set to work.  ;)

On a more serious note, if forum activity also plays a factor in search, no matter how small the factor, well that's just silly. The only worse thing I heard was when both Yay and CC started making a factor of the number of FB 'likes' on images, a little over a a year ago. I don't know if they still do it.
