Quoted Message: First sale of old image is 0 level, I understand, but why second sale again 0 level? (8939497)Why second sale of new image again with 1 level like first? (24805584)What happens, new rules again?
The second download for this image 8939497 was made by the same buyer. A different type of license was acquired and the extended license price would have been the same even if the image level changed. We keep the level of the first download for the same buyer to avoid the artificial increase of levels and the sudden price change. We had cases when buyers downloaded an image with the RF license to see if it fitted their project and then tried to re-download it under SR-EL. We have many duplicate downloads and the price change may appear baffling for buyers if they wish to re-download, under the same or a different license.
The second image was again downloaded twice by the same buyer, hence no level difference. These were subscription downloads and these downloads are always at a flat fee, regardless of image level.
That's clear, Tangie. Thanks. But I have just sale (ID 18318105) which is indicated in the table as level 0. Though the image is leval 1, since it was uploaded in February, 2011 (less than 2 years ago).

I also had a level 0 sale (ID 19044435) on 12-Sep for an image which was less than 2 year old, and this is not the first time it has happened since April/May when all images newer than two years should have been at level 1.
