January is usually slow for most of the month.. totally normal

Odd.. I experienced quite a good month in January so far (and last year as well). But last year my sales halved in February, curious to see what’ll happen this year. But yeah, I guess my amount of sales is small enough for coincidences to cause this effect :P

Just one thing to say, weekly top sellers is necessary.

I can’t believe we do not have this page back: activeden.net/page/top_sellers

You have your statistic guys! I do not mind if you do your math behind the curtain. But having this page:

http://activeden.net/author/top_authors, instead this: http://activeden.net/page/top_sellers is a 14 days disaster for the new files.

I’m really frustrated even if I do not have published a single file in the last year.

If you could see the difference and explain to me WHY you did it I’ll agree sooo:

For Weekly Popular files we have this:

http://activeden.net/author/top_authors VS. http://activeden.net/page/top_sellers

you tell. maybe I am stupid or what?

^ I believe they do it this 14 days thing to improve the weekly popular page.

Edit: According to this post, I believe we can expect a categorized weekly top seller page.

Not having the page http://activeden.net/page/top_sellers means so many things:

1. Lower the quality standards – not yours but the one in our customer’ eye. – cos they see the old files first

2. Promote outdated files

3. Make BIG fat joke out of the hard work of our new authors and those who have really great files.

4. And so on, so on… really need an explanation. You have 2 links in the bottom. Why not 3 so we still have the Weekly popular files? Why so drastic changes are done without discussing here? I can’t get it!

I questioned the same. Even it was simpler than any other thing. Anyway the banner on home page for users solves this situation, but not for new users that arrives for first time in this mrkt.

Yeh I agree “Popular files” is misleading, since it redirects to all time top sellers.. not popular files page.. maybe have both “Top sellers” and “Popular files” links.
