Here is a puzzle; well it is for me !


posted on 21st of november, 2009

A recently uploaded image has 1 download but no views. How does one buy without looking at it first ? My only thought is that a buyer has a standing order for all images with the word bank or collapse in it and management of DT fulfils the order. Does anyone else have a better explanation of this puzzle ? David

Yes, that's odd isn't it? my guess is that the reviewer could be also a buyer and bought your image. which I think is a good thing.
I also agree with Gilmourbto2001, I place very little significance in views.
In fact, many times, I noticed the ones with the most views are mostly drive by looking for keywords or ideas.
I love it when I see an image of mine with something like 5 views 5 dls.
I prefer it this way. Views really is inconsequential.

I don't think views are as important as us contributors make them out to be. I'll trade 5 views for a sale anyday.
