And what is even more funny, is that the monthly average number of footage sales in last THREE years (exluding the photos from last year and this year $1.5 per clip) is almost identical (this year only by 2 sales behind the last year). 2016 and 2017 were actually identical in monthly average sales.

Only in the years before 2016 the monthly average sales were lower, but we also had only one-fourth of the files we have online today. Something triggered the capping system between the 2015 and 2016 and has been capping our number of sales for the last three years.

My July was quiet, but I still managed to beat the earnings from the previous July. That maintains my record of improving my earnings over the previous year to 14 consecutive months now. How do I do it - read my book  ;D

The full report on July is on my blog as usual.

The last three months graph from SS (there is a 40 cent difference between them)

And 27% ($900) less than the same period last year.

funny, we have same graph for the last three months... SS capping system becomes even more clear now. Now let's hear some anti-conspiracy arguments now, ladies.



Yeah, right! Good one!  ;)
Here is another one: I only made 2% more, on SS, this July compared with July 2017. A clear sign of year over year capping!  ;D

Anyway, here is the pie chart for my July revenue per agency (June for IS) and the totals, for all agencies (compiled from Paypal transfers)

I sense some sarcasm in your response. This is really our chart from the last three months. And it is not even slightly funny, because sales dropped.

No sarcasm, my revenues were capped not for the past 3 months, but for the whole year! Can you believe that?

Why is it so important to you to be right that you completely refute any argument or evidence that isn't your own experience?

Because I know a thing or two about statistics.
So far, all those so called "arguments" are in the best case naive, if not laughable.

BTW, steheap has also published his trends (see above). He is also very "capped" indeed!  ;D
He has a small variation of $500 from month to month => a solid proof of "capping"!

...or rational thinking, common sense, the ability to look at actual numbers, and maybe some education.  ;D

Go read the top post on 3rd page about this capping. If three years of analysis doesn't convince you.... I'm sorry for you.

If you still see capping on my trends or those published by steheap above, I am sorry for YOU, man!

But, whatever makes you happy! Religion is a personal matter.

So the inference is that only you can read stats and the rest of us who have different results than you are naive or not educated enough (and yes I know someone else said that bit, but your condescending replies fit too). Got it. Speaks miles about you as a person. As you say, religion is a personal matter. Good luck with yours.

Thanks!
There is one thing I know from the History of Religion: The God of Capping doesn't exist.  :P
However, many around this forum believe in him or her, despite the facts (like, among many other, the trends posted by me or steheap, who should be enough to make you change your beliefs)

Here are my last 12 months worth of Shutterstock earnings to throw into the mix. I'm not saying they are good - they are what they are, but they are pretty variable

I am sure that your completely different stats than mine and others proves without a shadow of doubt that you are correct. I must have missed the class on ignoring contradictory information to prove your point.

Carry on, you flat-earther you. :)

Most of us agree that the seas are getting rough in this business. Is there a cap on shutter? I don't know for sure. Doesn't anyone know?

Most of us are making less $$ on that site. Facts like having over 200 Million images surely didn't help matters. Plus allowing anyone to join has produced unlimited supply. I am not counting on my $$ going up on that site no matter how many more images I submit.   :(

No idea if there is a cap or not or something else.

How about we call it a software aberration that affects some users instead of a cap? Would that help some of these people who seem so exercised about other people's sales patterns being different from theirs?

What you failed to realize is that when you say "SS revenues are capped", only one counter-example is sufficient to prove your theory wrong.  ::)
You have at least two, in this thread only.

Maybe your theory should have been formulated something like: "SS has something against me, personally, because they decided to punish me, by capping my royalties, while allowing flat-earthers like Zero Talent or steheap to enjoy market driven revenues".

Then take a dictionary and search for the definition of paranoid.

Lol, if you say so. I literally have said I don't think there is a "cap" and I have stated what I believed already. But hey, keep going! I used the phrase flat-earther because you seem to live in your self imposed denial where anything that contradicts your narrative gets discarded, but I guess it went over your head. No worries. No cap my friend. And wherever you went to get that background in stats, well, you may want to look at refunds. I think they did you a disservice  :)

Have at it. Arguing with you is pointless. You think you are smarter than you actually are. Done for tonight, good luck.

I just used simple logic to prove the cap theory wrong, indeed.
I'm glad you agreed with logic and got convinced.

You can drop that dictionary now.  ;D
