I cannot understand why iStock does not have an offline mirror site they can work on and debug and then swap out the current live one with no downtime. That is how it's done with all mega sites I have worked with. Back it up. Fix it. Test it. Fix it. Reload it.  ??? ::)

Looks like their back, but I don't detect any changes or fixed - unless you want to include that I didn't need to log in again after the maintainence run was finished...

no change after site maintenance. I don't know if the last dls bug was one of the fixes being addressed, but if it was, it didn't work.

Is it time they invested in getting the site re-coded from scratch?
I mean there are just sooooooo many bugs, and whenever they add or change anything at all they seem to be causing new unforeseen bugs along the way.
The code must be a total mess!

Exactly.  This is the most basic common sense even for a small site project.  It should be patently obvious for a large site that generates sales 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Also, as others have said, the holding page they put up looked like a hacker's page.  I couldn't believe it when I saw it.

Still broken! So annoying. And sad.

And plenty more bugs being reported on the Help forum.

Did anyone here happen to snap a screenshot of this? I'd like to see it since everyone's talking about it so much. BTW I love how they say that yes, we know the site is overridden with bugs, but trust us, the sales end of it isn't and all sales will be accounted for. Oh yeah, I'm confident of that. ::)

+1.  I never saw the "Jay is working on it" page.  Would love to see what the fuss is about.

ARGH!!!  Now I can't view my stats or financials pages.  It's just plain text.  Good thing I cashed out this morning before this latest bug.

Does the 'Total Earnings' amount get refreshed at a different time than the 'current balance' on the Financials page? Mine haven't gone up in synch since this time last night.

I've noticed IS only updates the dailies once a day, sometime after midnight California time.

I didn't get that nice looking page.  It was just plain text. I was wondering if they got hacked because the message was so weird and there were no graphics.

The first time I saw it, it was just the text as Paulie describes.  When I came back it was all formatted and pretty.  I assume there was a CSS file they neglected to install when they first put the page up.

wow.... I'm realizing how much of a barometer it's always been to view the Last Downloads column.... I usually check it a couple times/week to gauge what buyers are wanting. It was a great tool for us contributors.

How difficult can it be to just fix that column for us?

Could it be that ... it's just such low priority because it involves helping contributors rather than buyers....

Naaaaahhh.....

Thanks for posting that Rene.  Now I feel more in the loop :)

At least the 10% is only for a week, and the way things are going the site won't be very usable for that week.  ;)
