Hi All,

It's the last working day for many of us. So we're really prioritizing the one who will just make the cut. I hope the ones who have been with us and have already made the cut will be patient as we try our best to get more through the door.

Additionally, as long as your accepted count is more than 150, you're considered "IN".

Happy New Year, do enjoy but stay safe...!

Alex.

We do appreciate the effort on behalf of your team to help us make the cut. I know that I went from 0 to a couple hundred in a few short days.  Please send your reviewers our best regards and have a wonderful New Year.

Sorry but I'm going to whine a little here ... despite my best efforts it looks like I've missed out by 3 images ... can't there be a tiny bit of leeway for people like myself and sponner above? I felt like I was doing OK at 123 but this will make me lose motivation to upload there for sure. It feels very unfair that there wasn't more warning about this change and the only place to find out about it was here :-(

Me too -- just missed out by 4 images (I still have 27 pending).  I didn't get a notice anywhere but here and I've been on vacation for the last couple of weeks so didn't see it here until yesterday :(

I've been with 123RF for over 2 years but just kept a small portfolio there because I didn't have time to devote to another site.  In November I gradually started uploading my backlog (~2000 images -- including my top sellers) to bring my 123RF port into parity with my other sites.  It'll be quite disappointing if I unknowingly miss out on keeping my current royalty by a day or two.

Any news on the new commission structure? It was said to be valid from Jan 1, 2012 on... ???

Looks like the select few were given this notice?  Oh well... I'm not a super seller for 123rf but I have been loyal.  Guess I did not make the cut.  Not much incentive to add more photos now.  How unfortunate because I've always liked them and I think there recent marketing efforts on facebook have been really good for business.

I am happy that they have remained loyal to their contributor base. The change seems to be designed so that the maximum number of people don't end up having the rug pulled out from under them. I do feel bad for those on the margin, but I guess there will always be a few who fall through the gap.

True microbius, and as a marginal I agree to a certain extent.

Having said that if there was a notice of this change and a reasonable amount of time to cross the threshold I would have no complaints.

I agree.  I think it's the lack of notice that makes me unhappy.  I guess this is a lesson to be learned tho for not submitting on a regular basis.

Alex,

I believe the thread starter is the only person in this whole thread that actually got this email...

I definately didnt get it - and what worries me most, i didnt even get as a site mail! Why is that?

(In fact the only (site) mail I ever got is from 01.08.2011 and reads "thank you for your continued support".)

Same here, I didn't get the mail either.

I didn't get the mail either - I think 123rf might have had a problem with how this mail was sent. And as pointed out, why no site mail on this as well as e-mail? I can't buy the "check your spam filters" when (a) so many didn't get it and (b) I regularly check my spam filters and it wasn't there either.

Important changes like this should be clearly communicated - such as a popup when someone logs in or visits the site, sitemail, some other positive-confirmation method so the agency is sure the contributor has actually received the notification.

I didn't either - I know I've had the response from them before "check your e-mail, we sent you a message" and there was nothing there then either.

The same, I have not received the mail. Do not advertise on their website that accepts video? ....

That's right, they have an announcement about "news" for contributors from early December. That was about video, but the changes in royalties should have been there as well as via e-mail - and e-mail is as well as an on site notification.

Alex, thanks if you sorted this out.
