The traffic is down clearly because they have forced buyers to buy in composite increments.

     No  sales  lately  but  have  4  extra  accepted.  Not  trying  to  do  this  on  a  ig  sale  because  of  recurring  health  probleems.  But  it  gives  me  somethin  to  do  to  take  my  mind  off  my  health  problems.

Dan, best of luck with your health issues.  I can see how photography would be a great distraction.  I am sure your health will improve and your sales too :D

I'm getting more and more of these rejections and am getting so frustrated with DT.  I do not know what it means.  And, it isn't consistent.  It happens a lot with food images.  But, they turn right around and accept very similar "type" images.  Is it just one reviewer?  I don't know.  I just don't know?

The composition of a successful commercial image needs to be clear and supportive of the image's main concept and primary subject.

What is NOT clear and supportive about a piece of chocolate candy and a cup of coffee?

 ???

Reflection of a swan and mermaid (ceramics) in an aquatic garden.   What is not clear or supportive?  What does that mean?

Here's one!

They have also hit me before with the Aesthetics crap and there are already many more already here.

So when I go look to find the excellent quality many more on site already by the one Major Keyword that would be used to search by I find 41 images! Only 41! so where are the already many better?

And if you add the second Keyword to it you only find 17 images.

Bullchit total Bullchit I tell ya.

EDIT:

Big time blown skies and piss poor composition with parts being cut off.

Maybe they only have 41 because they dont want any photos of that subject. So they have 41 they dont want, and then yours is the one too many.

I dont like that they put you back in searces ( If they do) when you are close to a payout and every second week.
My sales at DT are very inconsistant, some weeks they perform well, other weeks they are completely dead.

It is as if the dead periods are longer and increasing.
I dont upload much to them anymore.

And now, after starting this thread as a rant about getting nothing but subscriptions for several weeks, I get a burst of credit sales.   What could possibly explain these weird ups and downs?  Are contributors really on some sort of rotation in search placement?

I expect the credit sales will dry up fairly soon and the cycle - whatever it is - will repeat.

I see that happening more and more on every agency. Some weeks are roaring the next is almost dead. Even on SS I see fluctuations that are weird. One week all sales are in Europe and Asia, next week all sales are in the Americas, one day sales go through the roof, the next day I sell hardly anything. Its fickle to say the least.

Heaps of subs here too, low RPD. So sad seeing level 3 & 4 files only getting 35 cents.

Dramatic nose dive. Especially with October included, but since it's only the 6th don't you think that number might change in the next 25 days? Myself I've made more in the first 6 days of October than I did in the entire month of August. It seems there is some kind of cyclical search engine rotation for contributors. I thought they had tanked in August and things were looking gloomy and then September and now October has been raining money from them.
