I just loaded the new weekly statistics today (usually I make an update once every week, more often makes no sense since iStock often had problems publishing the stats themselves). Looks like not much has changed. No exclusive exodus yet (2 diamonds and 5 gold members returned their crown so far in January, only one gold member became exclusive), however it takes 30 days until the status change becomes visible so we might see a few more. Downloads still as low as the whole final quarter of last year, absolutely no upswing visible.
A little more interesting - About 140 members deleted 7300 files the last week (week before was 4600, already much more than usual). In addition upload numbers are about 30% lower than between summer and Christmas. These 7300 are more than what gets uploaded on a regular day. Let's see what happens when the Feb 2nd plans of a group of contributors become reality here...
Since I will be in Kenya from the end of this week until end of February this will be the last update for some time Maybe it is good to get some distance to the chaos here and afterwards I can decide for myself if I will keep the crown.
