I was just playing with my sales spreadsheet and made a list of "last BME" per agency :

IS :  Nov 2009

RODEO :  sep 2010
DST :  nov 2011
FT :  nov 2011
GLO :  feb 2012
CAN :  apr 2012
SS :  oct 2012
BIG :  oct 2012
132RF :  feb 2013
DP :  may 2013
POND5 :  july 2013
 
Pond5 (Oct/10) and DP (Jan/12) are the last ones I joined, so it's not surprising they have a good score, but I think the other dates really give a realistic view on how these sites are doing (for me). 
123rf has been constantly growing for years .  SS has been growing continuously, until this year when it stopped.  Istock has been a complete disaster since 2010.  DST and FT were excellent until end 2011 and are still good, but without any super-great months.

This is a completely useless analysis, so feel free to ignore it!   ;D

Don't try to understand Istock, you'll go insane!  Just download the stats at http://www.istockphoto.com/user_stats.php?id=&Offset=0&DownloadsGraphFileType

"Snap" indeed!  And that 2009 BME was 3 times the value of my average month in 2013 ... PP included ...
