Hello,

I was afraid I would never see an EL on SS again after they loosened up the licence for the standard licence. However, where I normally would have between 0-1 ELs per month, I had 2 last month and 4 already this month.

Could it be that the EL licence had some changes that in fact we see more ELs sold now? Or am I just lucky for once?

Cheers

They're about normal for me...too few to be statistically significant.

no increase here, in fact I'd say 1 since January is probably a bit low.

Think it's luck. I had a lot last month and fewer this month.

Last month I got 3 in a single week, but only 1 in May... we can't draw any conclusions from such low numbers.

My last one EL sale was in Nov 2014.

Three straight months of goose eggs. Before that 2-4 a month. So ever since the change im getting skunked.

Good for you Ron.  Now can you send some of that luck my way?  No ELs for me this month yet.

Sorry guys. I guess I was just lucky then.  I  was hoping we would all see more ELs. Let's see what June does.  I  will probably be back to 0-1 ELs.

None this month, I could be heading for my worst month in 8 years.

Same here, not only no ELs, but ODs are way down for me, too...

Just had another EL on the same image as yesterday. That's 5 ELs for the month. For my port that's unheard of.

Wow, great job!  I had none last Oct-Dec, got 1-2 a month from Jan-April but none so far this month.  I think they are random.  Hope your luck continues, but also that it spreads to some others as well!

I finally had one el a few days ago but mostly like your experience. No el's, very low OD's, and subs about 50% of normal (50 ish a day to 25 ish). As I have mentioned in previous threads I now find myself praying that I check stats and have a $80 SOD and maybe a video sale or two.  I NO LONGER expect big sub days, nor do I expect good OD's. The trend has been too long for it to be a search thing. It's the new norm until the next new norm happens.....and it is coming.
