I'm wondering, what is the percentage of contributors to downloaders? Any idea?

And on the front page it shows the number of guests and members online. Does a guest basically mean that if they want to download something they're using bitpass?

Or does member=contributor?

I think that percentage would probably be confidential.

Given that though, there are about 180000 images and a ton more downloads. Maybe that might help you with your numbers.

guests are probably anybody on the site browsing images, anybody not logged-in i'd assume. my downloads don't reflect that many people using bitpass, so i'd guess the bulk of the guests register to buy an image they like. i would too, as opposed to paying double for it (if i understand bitpass purchasing on iStock).
