I just timed how long it took DT ...

posted on 29th of april, 2010

to post which image i sold to a buyer. So, this is what happened, I was browsing my account and when I refreshed the screen the earnings balanced jumped to a new amount! Then I was immediately curious which specific image sold from my collection. So I refreshed the total sales icon, then nothing, refreshed once again, still nothing! One full minute of refreshing, and WAHLA!!! Low and behold, the image finally shows itself. Ahhhh, christmas in April. Anyone else have disorders like me ? :P

At first, I have feelings like you, long time, or take it lightly a lot, practical good photo shoot, shoot pictures that can be adopted by editors is my only concern. Thank you for using my photos.

I think it´s ok how it works right now. Of course, we have a little bit to wait until sold images show in the statistics. But it´s ok! ... ;)

Congrats with your sale, though I did not quite understand the purpose of the message, sorry.

1 min of waiting time - is NOT a disorder. Given the terrabites of master data that DT has to manage - it is a FANTASTIC performance!!!

Many companies prefer to update their statistics on servers once a day only - usually at night hours caring about capacity of their resources + reducing their costs...

I guess we should thank DT here for being customer oriented!
