Has anybody else noticed their DL numbers randomly decrease in the new interface?

Last night when I made a final check of sales before calling it a day I had 100 dl's this morning I only have 98.

It happened once during the day yesterday when I seem to have lost a sale...

And I'm still having trouble reconciling my records with this month payment.

I may have just hit my frustration threshold with these clowns.

Well I am finally seeing the new dashboard -

April my Subs got me $1.27 (15 dl's @ 0.084 per image)
May $4.38. (27 dl's @ 0.1622 per image)
June $10.12 (52 dl's @ 0.1946 per image)
July $12.68 (67 dl's @ 0.1907 per image)

What a great deal for us - so makes up for the hundreds of dollars I'm down each month since the Getty deal and free images started, >:(

I'll look into this for you.


Hope this doesn't mean it's an error and the $$$ get clawed back.

"next Monday".... is actually a public holiday in Australia (or at least, in NSW where Canva is HQ'd).

Look when he wrote that - his next Monday was 6 days ago.

The thing that confuses contributors is it that you use the term 'Illustrative Editorial" to mean something different than how, the first micro site (SS) to use the term, defines "Illustrative Editorial".

Products are "Illustrative Editorial' and identifiable buildings are just editorial on SS.
Frankly I don't understand the need for the distinction but that's the way they do it.

Adobe Stock on the other hand is lumping all editorial images (without people) into "illustrative Editorial".

As for what is acceptable at AS in regards to buildings as Commercial vs Editorial and what SS considers Commercial or Editorial can be quite different and somewhat vague, not only to contributors but to reviewers as well. Rejections are all over the place.

My advice to anyone is upload it and let AS figure it out.

You will see subscription sales in the new interface, which is rolling out by next Monday. I can confirm you have subscription sales. Sorry that it's not showing up on the old dashboard.

Still not seeing anything new in the reporting.

The end result would have been the same regardless. You had a windfall in June due to software error. The error has been fixed, and the account normalized.

Windfall in June :o.
At Canva June was $200 less than May and $400 less than June 2018.

I'd really like for someone to explain this to me.

9 Canva Sales netting me .60 each - all on Aug 22

all corresponding with ...

9 Canva refunds costing me -.86 each  - all on Aug 14

It seems last month Canva negotiated a lower rate that applied retroactively too all sales from all previous months. Hence the large refunds and repurchase at the lower rate. My guess anyway.

Thanks for the explanation but that borders on criminal.

Can somebody please post a screen shot of this mysterious tab?

I would be helpful for AS to start reading the Description field instead of the title field.
I'm pretty sure most Editorial images shooters are doing it that way as that is what we are all used to for SS.

Yep down, and they have been extremely slow (server wise) for the last couple days for me as well.

And it looks like SS removed the thread(s) pointing out the thieves, again.

I have to go back to July of 2011 to find a worse month.


Nevertheless, just tweeted this to both SS and Oringer. I was going to @ the copyright owner of the monkey-selfie, @davidjslater but opted against it. Who knows, they might shoot the messenger!

Yesterday I sent him an email with the links

yes - on the 15th.

many US hand gestures have different meanings elsewhere:

'ok' here means 'you're a zero' in france and
"But make the same gesture in Brazil, and you're giving the equivalent to the middle finger the gesture has "insulting and scatological connotations," as the New York Times put it. Richard Nixon once raised some eyebrows in the 1950s when he made the gesture in Brazil as he stepped off a plane. "   businessinsider.com

and btw, search "ok sign" on SS to get--
291,903 ok sign stock photos, vectors, and illustrations are available royalty-free.

Search Middle finger and you get 73,000+ images

Here's a quote I got from them:

How much are you getting for this unlimited service?
The subscription is technically 'unlimited' however we've put measures in place to avoid subscribers abusing the subscription, and we'll investigate any account that registers over 250 downloads in a single 30 day period. Also, from various experiments we've run we've found the monthly number of downloads to be extremely low.

So if the tests they ran show DL's to be extremely low - What's the point of doing this?

And they'll investigate abusers - that makes me feel so much better :-\
