2013 matches about what I had previously recorded. Prior to Nov 2012 they don't have any regular IS sales reported. At least my balance isn't negative to reflect that. I suspect it will be a while before everything is all sorted out, but the 2013 ones seemed to go fairly quickly.

I've had only 25% of my usual number of downloads, and the worst month of the year. This can't be right.

Yes, November stats are visible now, however, did you check your profile page? Mine says 56 downloads since 2006, however it should be 1492.

???

Worrying.

If you read Lobo's OP, that is Stage 3, which they haven't completed yet.

Oh my! Can it be true? Stats bars with only two days delay are back!

It would be great if we could get a reporting system like paypal or ebay or like my bank where every single line item is detailed by date and time. To know what sort of credit the item was purchased with and what royalty rate was used. To sort by date inputs and have printable PDFs of the results.

Maybe one day when the debt is paid off they'll be able to do such things.

These might be nice, but far more important is making sure the site stays stable for buyers and making sure buyers know they can turn off the still-annoying loupe. (Is this the 'improved' version?). I'd be nervous in case they made these welcome stats available for us and the whole selling side collapsed.

But in fact, you know your royalty rate anyway, so that's not needed; every line item has date and time (in My Uploads), (although that peculiar and eternal EL bug still applies, AFACS) and you can check the credit value with Sean's app (and anyway, there's nothing we can do about it, so why do we need to know? I only check if a sale seems abnormally low just to see how low credits are going for.)
And that bottom line is even with all that info in place, you're just taking their word for it, so if you're suspicious now, all of that wouldn't really help.

I miss seeing if files are going into private lightboxes (or not, in the case of new files). And I'm now realising that I would like to know what keywords files are being sold by.

Looks like stage 3 may have progressed back to 2009 processing. I don't see anything in 2008 yet.

Well, they have all this information in a database. I don't understand why they can't make it more flexible. Why do I have to use an app Sean made to find out what credit was used? Going through every image one by one in my uploads is impractical because you only see the total royalties but not the amount for that sale. Digging through every image to see what the last payment was is just too time consuming. They could also provide us with graphs for image views compared with sales.

You're right, of course. If you've got lots of sales each day, it would be a PITA to click into each one to see individual sales values.
Still, although all these things would be quite nice, if not very useful, they wouldn't be on my top of the list for site improvements, and I'd rather see them spending the money on more/more effective marketing, and making well thought-out, joined-up plans.
