And Lobo has locked the thread asking for more information.

"Remember when we tested the color change of the download button?"

This is so ridiculous.  CHANGING THE PRICE is not the same as changing the colour of a stupid button.  Wow.

I'm not effected by vector prices because I don't have vectors on iStock, but the thing that bothers me the most is that we have to watch iStock like a hawk in hopes that they don't sneak a price increase or a % decrease under our noses just to meet the bottom line on their year end profit. It really makes me wonder how many out there are effected and don't even know about it and would never know because all they do is check balances....not which one sold for what.

Just for completeness, I had said in a couple of (locked) IS threads on this topic that I'd post when I got an answer to my support ticket about the vector price hike.

I got an answer this morning from Joy. She apologized for the delay in replying and repeated what she'd said in the forums - a test of a site feature.

I'd have posted on IS if there was anywhere unlocked to post...

Thanks for the update, Jo Ann.

Still a shame how this whole thing played out. I'm still assuming that this also means that a price hike is coming sometime soon, certainly within 2011. My take is that if someone is testing something, it's often to implement the tested feature at some future point in time.

That has got to be the lamest excuse I've ever heard. Since WHEN do they "test" price increases like that? I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that a price hike is coming in 2011 though. It's a constant, like the changing of the seasons.
