Sorry if this has been discussed before but I was just wondering why one of my images that have been downloaded has different rates. Both say they were the same size file but one download price is .60c and the other is .30c. Just wondering why this occurs. Have the rates dropped dramatically, is this maybe the same guy uploading 'cause he lost the first file and gets a 2nd download discount, or is this a glitch? Again, sorry if this is a repost.

There is a stickied thread about this in the main forum.
Basically, because credit prices have doubled since January 3rd, and people had the ability to purchase 'old' credits (cheap credits) which are valid for a year), you are just seeing the transition.
1 of you downloads was purchased with old credits, and 1 was purchased with new credits. You don't get the new rate of pay with old credits, only new.
I have also experienced downloads that have some old credits and some new in the one download, so you get an even different royality again. But check the main forum, it explains it well.

Thanks for clearing that up for me - I haven't fully explored this site yet and didn't come across that until now. I'll try harder to look for answers next time
