I could use one of those myself. Down 95% from yesterday to today. I was just reinstated (gambling was my crime) on Monday after being kicked out back in October, 2010. Probably should have applied for reinstatement sooner, but, as of today, I am reminded why I hate Google so much.
BTW: is is just me or does anyone else hate the current user interface, dashboard or whatever they're calling it these days?
January could have been my highest earning month of all time, but hackers messed with my site, and I had almost a week of very low earnings. Still finished quite reasonably in the end, and now February has arrived, it's off to a positive start.
Yesterday, February 1, was the 2nd best AdSense day of the year for me. My best day was January 26. Impressions hitting all-time highs - I guess Panda "turned me loose". CTR about the same - historically low for all of 2011. EPC not so great, historically speaking. .
Horrid January. Page views were up, clicks were up from previous month but income was 50% of prior year's monthly average. Basically my income has regressed to 2008 levels. And February is not looking good either.
We really need a more positive thread... I'm not a tree hugger, but this is pointless. How about "february's new earnings opportunities"?
Complaining has never led to anything.
I'm having my ups and downs just like everybody else... Guess what? Complaining never solved anything! Internet started out in the '60s as a way of exchanging info (.mil style, but that's not the point). How about taking it back? How about sharing info on what works, rather than on what doesn't...?
What you need to remember is that Adsense is the biggest income generator for Google and to that end, I would hazard a guess that they hold more sway with the directors than the self appointed "senior fellows" and "distinguished engineers" on the search side. After all, it is adsense that pays their wages.
The adsense team are and always have been consistent with their advice whereas Cutts and Co put out so much conflicting information, it is more or less impossible to know exactly what they do want.

You have a good point there zerillos although I wonder how may folks on this forum are doing particularly well with adsense. Just like real life, you only hear from somebody when something goes wrong - not when it is going well.
Having said that, there is a sticky post on this forum (want to earn more with adsense) but it points to threads that are either locked out to non paying members or are somewhat on the old side.
Since you broached the subject, why not start a new thread along those lines and see what happens.
