Have you heard about the internet? Incredible for getting info:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Workers'_Day
As yesterday was a Sunday, the holiday will often pass to today.

1st of May is Labour day. 2nd May is normal working day in much of Europe. And yes, I checked "internet". Maybe you should check it too. Only countires in Europe that have 2nd May free of work are Slovenia, Serbia, Ukraine and Monte negro.

Ok, I admit, my bad. I should know that Australia, Barbados, Burundi, China, Dominican republic, Egypt, Ghana, Hong Kong..... are considered "much of Europe".

Looks like everything is finally back to normal again. Still having a decent day despite the glitch and the holiday.

Tomorrow is going to be great!

1 of my photos jumped from spot 2 to 3, is the site broken?

I guess people check for position of their images daily. How else would one know that page 1 and 2 were swapped.

Grumpy bugger! It was also Easter Monday in the Orthodox calendar so a holiday in Romania, Ukraine, Greece, Russia, Serbia, Macedonia, Cyprus ...

I would not say it to colleagues at my work to avoid unnecessary stress but since it is a forum it is different.

I am always wondering how somebody can have a complain about search engine and thinks that it is broken just because his or her images are not anymore on page 1, instead taken by other contributors. Then they check and check every day until the images are on page 1 again and then they decide the engine is fixed. ???

Do you really believe that you have a special ticket and only your images should be on first page? Everybody that sells images on SS has right to be on page 1 and everybody can fall into page 2 and deeper.

Not only, as the first of May was a Saturday, in some of these countries they had Tuesday as holiday too, to "compensate"

I agree with you... in general
I always reject the usual conspiracies this site is very popular for.

However, last week, there was a glich, not a conspiracy. For only 3 or 4 days, the entire 1st page has been swapped with the second. Not just my photos. I know well those photos belonging to fellow contributors, sitting next to mine. These were still sitting next to mine, but on the second page.
Once the glitch got solved, the same photos were sitting next to mine, back on the first page again.
Even their order on the second page was virtually the same.
Statistically, it cannot be not a coincidence.

The good news is the site is back to normal.

It must be some kind of glitch only some people are seeing. The new page "2" is acting normally, with things shifting around, and the new page "1" seems stuck, with lots of similars just sitting there in a big chunk in the same static position.

Sales seem to be normal.

It was a glitch. It was experienced by a lot of contributors, not just a couple. Every contributor that upload has the right to be on the first page, but the right is earned when images gets download more than others make their way up there.
