Just complain and drain the anger, because there is nothing left to do. It is really frustrating. :( I'm really screwed! Time to switch to another activity if I don't want to starve.
As es la vida!

Sales have collapsed for me at Adobe and not one sale since sometime last week. Very disappointing.

C'mon Adobe, give that algorithm another spin, preferably back to where it was. Not one sale so far this week.

And even no explanation from Mat/Adobe to this.

If they even do not try to make us calm down by telling us other reasons for our fast drop of sales, then it has indeed to do with their new ways. And simple as it is, we have to take our decisions from that for ourselves, if nothing changes back.

Dont forget: No answer IS an answer!

about same sales so far this month - tho RPD is up ($.91)

again - correlation is not causation -- why is a conspiracy/algorithm change always to blame for someone's downturn in sales? and somehow never reported for a sudden increase over average?  unless you have hundreds/thousands of sales/month, statistically you'd expect such blips.

any claim such as these should at least post either the size kf their portfolio or their avg # of downloads

I looked at all my sales from this year on Adobe to get some numbers to make sure I am not actually imagining things when I say that, in opposite to other agencies, new content does not sell on Adobe for me:
I  had 1084 sales in 2021 so far. Only 8 (!) downloads were of images I submitted in 2021, so 0,74%.
My port has around 5700 images. Around 1200 were added in 2021, so 21% new images this year.


Yeah, I am pretty sure I am not imagining things. :-\ And since this is an Adobe-only phenomenon I am quite sure it's not because I suddenly started submitting crappier or less useful images.
You just trigged me to check sales of new files in my port, because I also felt that new files don't sell.

The result is, to my surprise, that 6% of my sales in 2021 are from files uploaded in 2021.
And only 5% of my files are uploaded in 2021.

That's interesting, so a total different experience from mine. May I ask how many total downloads you had in 2020? Because if the number is very different, these two cases might not be so easily comparable.

The numbers are different.
My port size is smaller than yours, and sales in 2021 also smaller.
But number of sales from files uploaded in 2021 is higher than yours.
