I haven't been able to upload at all this afternoon nor tonight.  After the images are uploaded, I get an "unable to upload" message for each image.  Tried FTP, same problem.

Strange because there is no mention of it on their message boards.  The only other mention I found of this was Lisa bringing it up on another board. 

Even when uploads were working, the IPTC processing was messed up again.  The last few weeks it keeps importing the description into the title field.  They really need to get themselves some better techies.  It seems between uploading snafus, and search problems, they have way too much down time.

I didn't have the single sale for a month and a half, and yesterday I got 3. I think that they have started messing with the search and hope they'll leave it a present state :) (I keep imagining two tech guys, one with the "search engine antenna" on the roof moving it around, and the other downstairs looking at a screen and yelling "keep it still, now! the sales are starting to pour in!" :) :)

oddly enough the site seems to be a lot faster than usual but the search still works in the same way as it has been lately favoring images with more downloads and I have to admit my sales seems to have been effected by it too I mean a bad way but anyway august has been my worst month so far I hope I will recover in sept.

PS:I didn't try to upload may be that where they have the trouble,which you mention I don't know.

Sorry this seems to have deteriorated since I noticed the upload problem yesterday.  I can't access the blog either.

Guess its Fotolia's turn to have a system meltdown. 

Wouldn't it get boring around here if all the sites worked perfectly all the time? ;)
