The start of the month was slow for me as well. Last week things definitely picked up though and I should hit level 4 by the end of today. 4 more to go. The crap part is I wont be back to level 5 for months, and Ill certainly never see the highest tier again. Nothing more demotivating than an unwarranted demotion. It leaves a bad taste that just wont go away.

I am a little amazed myself. The numbers at shutterstock are absolutely miserable. But they are actually better than at the same time last January. However, at the end of the month there were still some notable SODs coming in - let's see if that works out this year as well.

It's funny you should say that but, my stats are the same. As soon as I hit level 4 last year (around the 20th), things started to improve. Here's hoping the last week and a bit will be a lot better!

Given the volumes the $ difference is tiny. Just over $2 difference between 2021 & 2022 by the 19th.

Even though it may look similar for us, there is a significant difference:

The times when I would have reached level 4 on the 20th are over for me. Last year, that was at the beginning of February. So you're way ahead of me.

Given the way SS has changed, beginning of Feb is still good. Here's hoping it's no later for you!

Final third of Mar last year for level 5 but March was a strong month. We'll see, hopefully it's the same. Agree with the, "Unwarranted Demotion"... just leaves me feeling robbed by them. Greed, nothing more nothing less just pure green by SS.

Thank you very much!

I have now recalculated this and find that my statement is wrong. I must have miscalculated. Or maybe I got the month wrong - I can't reconstruct it. Sorry.  :-[
