Re: Popularity: In SS's case I think it's more like downloads per month - an age weighted downloads search with some brief boost for new files

Just out of interest!  price-slider?  well thats a joke and a half. I asked some creative buyers I know, here and in England and France,  not one, not even one, can be bothered with this slider, some dont even know it exists. So much for that Einstein idea.
No-one is forced to use it. If price doesn't matter they can see everything easily (except the Dollar Bin).
Those for whom price is a major issue (and who were vocal in the forums) can use it.
I usually use sorts by price when shopping online. But hey, I'm Scottish (we're canny, which means careful, not 'mean/stingy').
Sometimes I even sort from top down, e.g. looking for a lens, it's easier to sort by top price then come down a few models.
Your point was?

It looks like we've sorted out on this thread what type of artists most photographers are! :)

Not exactly the word I was thinking of, but it's the right idea.
Lot of discerning palates here though. You lot of reprobates 'd be an expensive bunch to get, er, drunk with! :)

That's one more incentive to really make it in MS ;)

Can we get back on topic please. Sales still appallingly dire. September looks set for another big slump.

My sales are fine.  But then my preference is for Ardbeg, or Bowmore.

If the next few weeks keep pace with the first two, Sept will be my overall BME.  Make mine a green tea.

Now, if we're just talking IS, that's another story.  My sales there have been fairly flat for about a year, with just the expected ups and downs (summer, holidays, etc.)   Good news is that SS and FT are more than making up for it.

Sales have slowed in a major way (because I have not signed new agreement?), but my totals have jumped by approx $30 over the weekend (maybe 48 hours) and I can't find an EL anywhere - I don't remember it taking this long to show up in the past - is this type of reporting delayed this long?    As long as it's something legit and not that I've been ported over to Thinkstock already - since my buttons were changed for maybe a month permitting it.

Is it easier to get into FT than SS ?

Don't worry Pixart, they haven't reported any TS sales yet this month. Perhaps you got something from a referral?

Herg - I don't know, but I do know that it is easier to sell images at SS than FT.

By the look of things, once you are accepted (which is almost impossible enough) it's now hard to get any images approved looking at the SS thread.

Indeed and they're surely giving a harder time to beginners. At least I got a lot less through when I started at IS and SS. I should really exclude SS, since half of my batches still get 100% (or close to) rejections. Even though I usually just split a session into 2 batches, meaning photos are of the same quality, at least technically.
