I can access it OK as a contributor including the forum which I read to depress me if I am too happy.

Same as 'ForReal' said - site is running well here as contributor and customer.
But the sales are down by more than 50% since August for me...

site's working fine - sales normal for this time of year - esp;'ly w US 3 day holiday

so many folk extrapolate from their anecdotal experience (based on what sized portfolios?) to decide it must be a major problem.  as geologists say, "shift happens"

Contributor site is functioning as it should be but their forums are drowning in spam. I have never seen so much spam in all of my life.

Can only be good news if Shutterstock are down, buyers will go elsewhere.

I think you got me wrong here :-)

I did not say I am buying from Shutterstock, I just said site is running well as customer, which you can easily check by just checking www.shutterstock.com

Noticed this morning that sales are appearing on the Map but not in the Earnings report.

Between that, the above access problems and the mass spam on the forums, I think SS left the apprentice in charge while they all took time off over the US holiday weekend.

Edit... flipping heck. I just looked deeper into the spam thing. It's been going on since the 21st August!?!?(600+pages) It's as if they don't give a stuff or, there is more going on than we know about. Oddly, it was around that time sales starting to slow down as well.

for you maybe - not for everyone. over what period? what are your numbers?  100 --> 50?>  100 --> 90?  10 --> 3?

1st may be significant, other 2 w/in margin of error
