Something seems seriously OFF at Fotolia today.  Is it a holiday?  Has there been a new best match update?

I probably haven't seen a sales total this low at this point in the day since a few Christmases ago. 

I won't accept an answer like "some days are better than others"... my daily sales there are typically large and consistent enough to suggest that a major deviation points to something actually changing, or an unexpected holiday, or something being wrong. 

Anyone else seeing unusual sales -- high or low -- on FT today?

Mine are not large enough to be statistically significant, but I'm getting normal sales today, mostly L+ credit sales.

its been off for some time now, lets just pray it gets back to normal, search and everything and we can happily go to the bank.

I've noticed the past week or so that a large number of my Fotolia sales are brand new files.  There may have been a search change that highlights new files.  If you haven't uploaded much the last month or so, maybe your sales would be affected?

I stopped uploading to them two years ago, but still get the same number of sales per month.  I only get a poultry six sales or so.  That is no doubt due to my no longer updating.  I got another sale today.  It was actually $.63 USD; most of the time I get about $.23 or $.27 per image.

I'm not sure if I have to delete my images one by one or if I have to request Support close my account?  Anyone know how to close an account with them?

My sales at FT have increased significantly the last few weeks, while SS stopped completely and IS is doing OK with ups and downs. But I also noticed FT has very different customers than others. what sells at FT doesn't sell on IS, and some IS bestsellers don't sell of FT. There are even bestsellers on one site that get rejected on others.

Yeah, I've noticed a lot of new images selling as well.  Nice to see them finally shift things around a little.

All your sales are of chickens (or other domesticated birds)? That is weird.

Noticed an increase since yesterday actually, still a bit slow. Its nice to see new files starting to sell. Pitty we cant have it both ways, old bona-fide sellers and new sellers?  I suppose its difficult to engineer that sort of search?

Something must have been happening yesterday (Monday) because things have turned around today.  I surpassed yesterday's total at around 10 am today.
