I realize that it will probably be short-lived, but the old page (thankfully) is back.

I didn't even see the new page... I guess Shittystock doesn't like me so much that beside destroying my sales, now they don't even show me the new design.  ::)

A reboot of my PC did the trick :-)

Once again, SS releases code and new pages, and artists become unwilling beta testers?  ::) Don't they have any computers on that floor of the Empire State Building?

Doesn't anyone higher up look at these things before they are activated? I mean, yes, people hate change and the new pages will always displease someone. Oh the map changed, "terrible terrible" I noticed we got over that one?

Since I can't see the new pages, and I'm not excited to do that, I wonder if there's something to include video, which was missing? Or maybe some improvements, that would be useful. I don't know why anyone changes their site, just to change it?

If there is a valid reason for making the change and if the answer is that it makes the site substantially better then thats a great reason. If not why are they changing anything? Some other reason, rather than just for the sake of change could be speed, or security. Somewhere in the front of my thoughts is, they aren't doing this for us or our benefit.

My main concern is a sales count number against images which is patently wrong. A certain image is claimed to have sold 5 times. Whilst I haven't kept count I know it sells quite often. They claim 5 sales of that image and I have been logging all of 2019 sales. 3 more years to go. In the first year 9 months it sold 3 times. So 5 is just wrong. But where are they getting 5 from. Have they only paid me for 5. It also states that all of my port has sold at least once. A thousand images. There were some pretty shonky images in the beginning.

Thankfully I now have the old, better version that doesn't require a dozen clicks to find out what I need to know. Hopefully the design team learn change doesn't always mean improvement. The earnings page is probably one of the few pages that pretty much tells me everything I need to know on the first screen.

Try this?  https://submit.shutterstock.com/earnings/top-performers?page=1&date_range=0&sort_direction=desc&per_page=100

Whether it's your numbers of theirs or new version or old, if your numbers don't match what's above, then there's a problem of some sort.

The advantage of the link I posted is 100 per page instead of 25. Much smoother searching with less page changes.

The new page design serves only one purpose. You shall not be able to recognize at first sight that there are no more OD, SOD and Enhanced Downloads.

You have to sort them with the product type drop down menu.  I much preferred the table layout to this nonsense.

Just noticed that the earnings page changed again.

I looks a lot like the old page, and so far I like it  :)

Now that I see it,  (I have the new page today) you hit the answer to the point. As I click the boxes, it adds to takes away each one of those, but not in their own columns, just totals, so I'd have to click each one, individually and see what the sales are. Terrible and nearly useless. Makes reading the sales much worse.

Yeah I think that covered it as well.

I can only hope it changes back.

You and everyone else have my sympathy for what we are now looking at. Mostly of no use except watching the cheap subs add up. The simple spreadsheet was just fine, without all the selections and deselection and the fact that we can't see what's from where, when we do select something to be included. It's the worst!

I am currently having a new design as well, so maybe there is hope and they are working on a different  - better - version again. It's very similar to the old design, so maybe they realized that there really was no improvement when changing a working design for a design that just held the exact same information, but just hidden behind various drop down menus.
I haven't even been using the "old" new page anymore. It was so impractical to use that I rather passed on on the extra information it provided and just looked at my daily overal earnings.
