3% royalty on DP, doesnt get more optimistic than that, or 0.01c royalty on Istock. Or have royalty slashed from 70% to 30% because it is better for sales, is also quite optimistic. Or have ELs go from 28$ fixed to 30% of sales price. All very optimistic.

The only optimistic thing that happened was the closure of the Dollar Photo Club. Unfortunately not so optimistically was that I got kicked off Fotolia for fighting for our rights.

Lol. I just re-registered after the adobe purchase ... I wasn't given the boot though, I requested out. Maybe you can get back in?
I asked and was told no

I don't see anyone complaining that there's a Shutterstock forum and a Fotolia forum. Is it segregation that I can't (or shouldn't) post Shutterstock questions in the Fotolia forum? No. It's just a sensible way to keep everything tidy and organised. Why not have a place for newbies to post there if they want to, or in whatever forum they like as long as it's relevant? Can't see any harm in it.

If 90% of people got fed up with microstock and left taking their portfolios with them; then the 10% that remained would be seeing higher revenue and sales increases. Making the community much happier!


Those 90% aren't the one creating the competition. I would very much prefer if the 10% left, while the 90% remained.

Why would somebody in their right mind pull their portfolio if they got fed up with an agency? Makes more sense to just leave it and forget about it...then get some PayPal payment without expecting.

One example of when having a big ego does more harm than good.

Nonpayment (then theft) of contributor funds. (Revostock)
Partner programs with no opt out. (Panther)
Predatory price drops. (take your pick)

Are three reason to remove your port from low performing agencies.

Fair enough. It's a lesson for all to only select top-tier agencies ---> see column on the right.
