All through May and June my pattern was exactly the same. zero during all night! and waking up to 2 sales! Now during all July Its dead during night and morning and at exactly around 11 comes the sales and it dies at around 22.00.  exactly the same during all July.

No big deal but it makes me wonder how they manage engineer this???? ::)

Perhaps they don't.  People love to find patterns in randomness.  With so many contributors, the sales stats are going to look strange for some people over a short period of time.

People are not very good at recognising randomness.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poisson_clumping

"Poisson clumping is used to explain marked increases or decreases in the frequency of an event, such as shark attacks, 'coincidences', birthdays, or heads or tails from coin tosses, and e-mail correspondence."

I prefer the old adage

If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.

There's always the possibility that they are batch processing sales rather than posting them all one at a time. The data page already says: *Updated approximately every 15 minutes.  So the process isn't immediate in any case.

yeah I think that I sometimes get a little run particularly late evenings sometimes which I doubt is a prime time to sell. I don't understand why SS would want to engineer people getting sales at particular times but thats an old discussion ;-).

I get most of my sales while I sleep, but that's because I sleep in Asia and most of my sales come from Americas ;)

Right now 4 ELs have come in and if I am reading the map Ok they seem to have come from Japan or there abouts. Must be the same buyer judging by the picture choice.

There is not much happening on the Pacific Ocean, during working hours. I also heard that working hours on the Atlantic Ocean are pretty boring  :P

Yours looks like a pirate or a musketeer to me?  :D

Yes, especially faces



Human mind is very good at finding patterns, where there is no pattern.

i see a pattern too, same every week, i see a number of downloads on the first 3 days mon-wed which are almost identical, then they drop by 40% on thu-fri and then i have 1 dl on sat and 1dl on sun, and the cycle repeats.

so for example (not actual) 20-21-19-13-11-1-1, every week. its probably random and coincedental but remarkable nontheless
