Usually I get a dozen sales per day...

Yesterday only got ONE (SUBSCRIPTION)
and today NOTHING.

I'm ready to dump them... especially after the subscription farce.

Based on their sudden low price sub offer, I'd say it smacks of desperation.  You're not the only one who is seeing falling sales.  Look to the right.  They are down to 4.8 on the earnings ratings, only 0.1 above 5th place Stockxpert.

I personally am thrilled and tickled pink that others are either not uploading anymore,
or are pulling their images altogether.

Early on I learned to deal with rejections, and to bridle my expectations. If there is one thing
that I can count on always it has to be CHANGE. I've learned to roll with the punches and go with the flow.

So now that everyone is pissed at FT it's in my favor because I don't mind the changes they made.
I will have less competition and my images will get reviewed that much faster.

What's pissing ME OFF is finding out there are other people who think like I do, and are cutting in on my good fortune.
I have to share all the benefits with all the others that are not affected by change......*!

Congrats on living without a spine!  A medical miracle!

Perfect! Just one new sub will pay for that! I hope you get the sub.

MIZ,

I hate to burst your bubble, but can I point out that if and when the good photographers stop uploading or pulling their portfolio it doesn't mean you're going to start to see a huge increase in sales, buyers aren't obliged to buy there and if they can't find a good enough image to buy it doesn't mean they'll take whatevers available, they'll go somewhere else.

But as you pointed out you'll get your rejections faster, so at least you're happy with that.

Oh but pardon me Mr. RT sir......

If buyers bought a subscription, they are in FACT obligated.....or loose the money they paid.

...by the way my bubble is iron clad. You are so presumptuous  and so self righteous to think you can penetrate it?
I laugh at your silly foolish attempt...hehehehe

The buyers must be mad to buy a subscription there at the moment when they are paying more than some sites and can't download the biggest sizes.  They might not like the reaction of the contributors either.  No wonder FT are deleting threads in the forum.

I think FT will have to change their ways or they could be left with a contributor and buyer exodus.  The buyers seem to be going to 123rf and DT at the moment.  My sales there are making up for the slump with FT.
