Sunnymars,
All right then.
You go ahead and thank Getty for taking 80 per cent of your earnings. Nobody's stopping you.
I wonder what are you going to do with the other sites? The sites that pay you a better commission?
Send them flowers every weekend? Write poems?

I can see why Sunnymars (who seems to have undergone a recent name change) doesn't mind getty taking 80% of her istock earnings.  In almost five months on the site she hasn't managed to get a single solitary image approved there.  So 80% of nothing is still nothing.  Quite a bargain if you think about it! ;D

Sounds like little Miss Sunnymars has taken their toys and gone home.

No point in acknowledging (let alone feeding) the trolls. The Ignore button was invented for such cases.

Normally I would agree with you about ignoring trolls, but there is something oddly compelling and entertaining about watching someone have a complete psychotic break in the forums.  Which appears to be what we are witnessing here.   :o

The bit about people here lacking communication skills, coming from someone who types insults, that was great.  I wonder what this person is like when you meet them in real life?  Some people like insulting others online but I doubt they would do it face to face.

came back after a long day and had a great laugh. some people really seem to strive for greater idiocy. I think we have a winner. anyways, has anyone gone to the trouble of actually charting the margins for exclusives and non-exclusives, for comparative purposes? I'm curious since the post further back. how are the independents doing overall these days? curious if iStock is managing to incent independents to convert or not?

I think the best way for istock to give non-exclusives an incentive to go exclusive would be to increase their earnings so that istock was by far their highest earning site.  That isn't happening to me, so I have no reason to even think about it.  And it doesn't help that they are owned by the people that closed StockXpert and are paying the lowest subs commissions with thinkstock.

^ I am not opted into the partner program, so I tend to forget about it. but yeah, that's true. I'm sure we all wish we could forget about it.
