I have images pending since the 9th of September at Istock. That make 11 days. Do it's normal? Am I the only one?

I've had 3 image batches in daily.  It seems one gets reviewed after 7 days, and then they sit.  my 9/9 batch had one reviewed on 9/17 and two still sit in the queue, my 9/10 batch had one on 9/18, and my 9/11 batch had one yesterday, but the others still sit in the queue.

Thanks all! I just had one reviewed :D Let's hope the ones who are still pending from the same batch will not wait another week.

Not sure what happened, I just sent a reply to this message but it seems to have disappeared...

Anyway, what I said was:  It may just be my impression, but I thought review times were shorter a few months ago.  Maybe they are being flooded with holiday related images.  I know I have been uploading a few, maybe others have been doing the same.

I'm at nine days (nonexclusive, basic member @IS).

The last two years the queue shortened in the summer and upload limits went up.  This year, the queue is getting longer and upload limits were reduced.  It looks like they want to make non-exclusives have an even bigger dissadvantage. 

They should get more reviewers and reduce the queue, as other sites are selling our new work over a week before they show up on isitock.  That is another reason for buyers to use the other sites.

11 days is still in istock's "limits" - the longest time I ever had to wait was 14 days, and that was AFAIR a year ago. Somebody said that the number of contributors has doubled or even trippled while the number of inspectors has been increased by only ~10 % ...

I know that exclusives are averaging a week for review times. I uploaded a series on Sept 11. 2 were approved 4 days later. The rest didn't get reviewed until Sept 18th. The upload date on the files is Sept 13. which I don't understand because these were uploaded the day PSC announced that it was going under.

I have two pending from 9/10, and three from 9/11 that were reviewed yesterday.   

I take that back.  One of the 9/10 images was reviewed in the past few hours...and rejected.  :::sigh:::

Of the 15 images I had at nine days yesterday 6 have been accepted; waiting on the next 9 no rejects so far. For a non-exclusive basic contributor like me this seems pretty good. It's just like when you get a new job, they always make you work a bit harder to see if you're going to stick it out. Anyone find the left handed mop? or the bucket of steam? The boss sent me out for both. ;D

Ouch. Looks like Attila visited IS... But this one is IS-specific Attila - I can buy most of his rejection reasons, only percentage is troublesome.

Yes, they're right next to the plywood stretchers.  You have to ask for them, though...  ;)

I'm finding IS reviews take between 7-9 days now.  And at 15 per week, it can take quite a while to get all my images uploaded there.

Just to close the loop on this, the last of the 15 images in question were done today, so that's 12 - 13 days; a bit long I suppose but 14 of 15 were accepted so IS can take their time at that acceptance rate. I'm quite satisfied.

6-7 days and very good acceptance ratio (over 85%). It' ok.
But my big problem with IS is video pending bin. Some of my videos are there from over 2 months! And I'm (was) exclusive videographer at IS. Yesterday I canceled my exclusivity for this reason.

Today a few of my images from 17.9. got approved, that means 8 days pending time. I think the queue is slowly reducing.

I guess I got 10 days on average.  My question is if my queue is also blocked for 10 days cause it seems like I cannot add anything if my slots are not available. This way 15 per week is not possible.

man.. I'd love to go for 11  - 17 days in line if they started accepting my images again!  another 15 images reviewed in just a few days.  100% rejection!!! :-[    It seems they have become hypersensitive to property and model releases erring on the side of hysteria!  I have an a horse racing image that has been downloaded more than 1000 times and since that has gone up..   not 1 horse racing image has ever been accepted.  The rejections are not for technical reasons, just model releases.   The images being rejected have absolutely no faces whatsoever and have the colours changed to protect the identity..   but nothing, not a single sporting image.   Sort of sucks when that's the main thang you shoot..  so if they're accepting your subjects, I'd be happy to wait.
