I really do not know what day the actual RC numbers are about, wouldn't it be easier to count dollars?

huh? percentages.....yikes i cant do maths, my plan is to make silver RCs way before December, i just need to know if im doing better than last year at this moment in time, i am a very slow accumulator of RCs anyway, i really want to be ahead of where i was last year, otherwise i will feel like a failure already

To track RC percentages, we can just check our current RC amount against the 2011 total (by changing the year dropdown on the profilt->stats page).

If someone currently has 1100 credits, and got 25000 credits last year their percentage would be 4.4% (1100 divided by 25000 x 100).  Maths isn't my strong point though, so someone pls correct me if that's wrong

I guess we could use $$ amounts instead of RCs, but for people who changed to a different royalty rate in the new year, or move up a level during 2012, the results would get skewed making it harder to compare... hopefully RCs give a better idea.

Having said that, with the vetta/agency rates being so low for photos, the RCs don't match up at all well with the $$, but I reckon RCs still give a simpler figure to check against.  Also, credit prices could rise sometime during the year.  Or fall

^ How about just setting a personal monthly target and seeing if the target is reached at the end of the month (which should show up on istock completely by three days after the end of the month). I want to hit 1100 RCs a month.

I'm hoping to match you, nkb. I think that sounds like a good way to track things.

Interesting, with today's update I passed my RC from last January.  Now if I can just sell a ton before the end of the month I might make that 10%.

Awesome, I am on about the same as I was for the same date last January ...

Keep the faith Wendy. Hopefully the "being able to go exclusive thing" will be sorted soon. Last January was my first full exclusive month and this year I passed that month's RC totals on the 10th. At about 3x right now after a stronger month so far than I was expecting.


I'm in too - going with nkb's suggestion - and also aiming for about 1100 a month for now.

Last week I was going like gang busters...this week I'm just creeping along.  Need some Vetta sales to make my 10%!

I am not holding my breath Ted, for now it is business as usual ...


I don't think I will make my 10% this month that is for sure ...

^I haven't kept very good stats since I've been here so I don't know what I had for RCs last year.  My goal this year is to keep daily stats on a spreadsheet.  So far I've stuck with it and am only off by a few dls.  I'm guessing I'm ahead of last years RCs though.

For all of us who don't like spending time on numbers, this is really pretty easy.  We don't have to know what our RCs were for last January.  We're just shooting for 10% of last year's total.  That's how I understand it anyway.  


With a little luck, I just might make it this month.  Fun race, George!  Thanks for starting it.
