What is going on here up until DT made all the changes sales were good , but now things are worse than rubbish. Even trying to find my own pictures using the normal search turns up a "No results"...what's going on DT?
DT don't close this post because you don't want to hear what the contributors say.

If you could not find your own image and think this is a bug please contact support. But remember that if the image is new it takes a while for it to be indexed. Offer more details about the search you performed.

I'm concerned about low sales right now too. But let's remember it is July. We are in the middle of the Summer Slump. Sales usually improve by September.

July is always slow because so many people go on holiday then. Yes, sales are slower sine the chafes but I have faith they will pick up again soon. Change takes time. :)

I think the new search Engine is a rusty and defect junk, and will sink the Ship in the storm if no one admits the wrong doing and switches back the robust Engine it had.

The problem is, the search algorithm has been corrected at the same time as the new level system was introduced (which can be viewed somewhat unfavourable for buyers), plus it's summer/holiday time... so nobody knows (or even able to split the effects of the three to know) exactly what's the cause of the sales shutdown.
