Many days with few or no sales, and again no ELs. The result is another uninspiringly average month.

I want to ask non-exclusives if this dramatic fall of the downloads is happening on other places.

WMY.
Compared to previous month:
  $ down 22%
DL down 16% (I have to go back to Jan of 2007 for less downloads when I had 3,900 less images for sale!)

Worst month since 2009. Maybe since 2008. Really tired of getting tracks of the past becouse its makes me feel like my account is in a coma .

Last two weeks of June were dramatic. The two worst weeks I've ever seen on iStock. Talking about DL and $.

makes me wonder if the "script errors" of late are affecting the integrity of our royalties.

Slightly up from last month but still way down in DL and $$ from June 2011.

I don't know. I noticed very short slowdowns, but I don't think I was ever unable to do something.

WMTY. WM since June 2009. Despite 5% portfolio augmentation, June was just over half of May.

Better watch out. With all these negative feelings being expressed the "how was your month" thread is likely to get locked too for the first time.

It was the lowest number of DLs since Sept 09 even though I have almost three times as many files.  It was the 2nd WMY and it would have been the worst if not for a couple of ELs.
