Is it a joke or what?

Why to do better when you can do worse?

"When viewing less dates, days without any downloads are hidden".
So that'll stop 'em whinging!
They didn't really happen...

Ugly and clunky.

Can't see at a glance, have to click through various tabs, can't easily compare sales of old images against new, only 20 images per page.

Edit: I'm thinking this is a bug, and that nothing has actually changed, (although I'm reluctant to clear cache/cookies just in case I get stuck with the new way).

When you click on the tabs Enhanced, On demand, etc, you can see the total earnings of one single image in the chosen category.
But it is not possible to see the total earnings by images all categories included

Where did you find this link?
https://submit.shutterstock.com/earnings

When I click on it I see the new table.

But when I click on the 'Earnings' menu I still see the old - and better - table

Is it a preview of things to come, or just an alternative way of seeing earnings?

Here we go again. IStock the second. "Fix" things that aren't broken, leave the broken things broken.

I don't like the new table look, it's harder to read than the previous design. What I do like is the image gallery stats on the other tabs. We can now sort on total earnings again!

That's great. But I would like to see the total earnings across all categories in a single tab too.

Me too. I don't think a new table exists at all, it must be  bug that makes the page load incorrectly.

Image gallery stats has long scrambled results beginning on page 52.  Wish they would fix that some day.

Interesting how the forum here can go into a rage against a page that doesn't exist with some small temporary page direct error.

Correct image gallery stats is buggy. The earnings had to be disabled because it didn't work. Total purchases shows files with less, ahead of files with more downloads. I never checked to see if the date sort actually worked?  :(

But attention those of you who like nit picking and details. Image Gallery Stats says on the tab in a box, BETA. Do I need to explain to everyone here what that means?

Yes it's broken. It's not important. Making money and getting downloads is important. A stupid page of stats is minor.

Earnings summary is fine, shows every day of the month. https://submit.shutterstock.com/stats.mhtml I don't know what page the OP found or how. It would be interesting to see where that came from, since it's not a page at all? Somebody in the big tall building screwed the code up.

How did you find that. Page doesn't exist. I think it's another one of those, updates that isn't checked for accuracy before it goes live. I find nothing a surprise anymore when some page is broken on SS.

But it's not a new feature at least.  :)

Doesn't work.

It'd be good if someone took a screenshot.

Thanks. Judging by that one screenshot with the empty table, it doesn't look so bad. It's actually quite similar to the current table. Dunno.

I don't think it's bad or good, it's just a change in the arrangement of the data.

What I DO think is that it's not what needs to be done at the moment.

You want to patch the roof before you put up the fancy wallpaper.

Great, easy to read, organized, shows what we need first.

It was back.......now its gone again and just whirring.....oh no - I lie - it's meercats (scouting around for a solution maybe?)
What a state of affairs when it is one of the things that didn't actually need fixing.
:(

On the other hand, soon may not have to go there so often. Not a single additional sale has been reported since this morning.

Note to self: update CV.......

I guess I shouldn't complain since I can't see it and my sales are reporting just fine.  :D

If it's not broken, don't fix it. Fix the things that are broken!

Since today I'm seeing the new table.

And I don't like it: too many clicks to see the same data that was visible in a single page before.

Also, showing total on the top line instead of bottom seems an upside-down way of doing things.

The cynic in me thinks this has been implemented on purpose to cause a smokesreen, whilst the new pricing structure gets quietly slipped into place.

Shutterstock will make a 'we listen to our contributors' announcement, revert back to how it was, and quietly cut our earnings in the process.

Yes, it certainly does make you wonder.  The old one allowed you to see daily earnings of all types on a single page, and now it takes multiple clicks to get the same information.  There was no problem with the old version and no clamoring for improvements so why go to the bother of changing it unless there are ulterior motives.  It's terrible that we have all become so cynical.
