Yep, mines finally gone.  Crazy, since they solicited ME and uploaded my whole port for me a couple of years ago.  I was still making good sales, even last month, for a site of their size.  At least it was their time wasted getting my port online and not mine.

And I don't get this with artists like you.  I am more of a ham n egger and they kept me.....I fully expected to be dumped and may indeed dump myself.  But the talent that they unloaded baffles my mind.

Some very talented artists were removed.  Perhaps other factors (tax policy complainers) were considered in the cull.

I tried to ask them twice to close my account and pay my account balance. They only respond the same thing again and again that I have to wait. It's been since november nothing is moving there. What can I do  ?

Become a top seller.  You'll be gone in no time.  ;)

Well, it IS a nice surprise... apparently we will be paid in May!!

In case anyone missed the email... if it's under $20 they will only pay by PayPal so make sure your account is up to date.

Same here I get one sale a month and fully expected to be dumped.  Doesn't make any sense  :-\

I was making 50%.  Maybe thats higher percentage than they want to pay, so they kept people earning lower rates?

That'll be the one... 64% of $0 is always better than 50% of $2 to $9.

89% of 1040 images does not equal 29  ;D

Minus points for poor maths Envato ::)

They emailed a few months back advising they were deleting 89% of my portfolio which should have left around 200 images as part of this "review"

The final confirmation came through that I would be left with only 29 out of 1040 images.

Eitherway their email also confirmed that they were reducing their image catalog from 9million images to 200,000

Incredible!

Well finally get to see the fine selection of items they kept in my portfolio and even though they are my images I am disgusted to see they kept all the poorest shots with no sales.

A bigger collection of junk I have never seen.

Quality my ass  :(

I can understand their strategy but in my opinion their inspection process is one of the poorest they really need it to be one of the best if they are to follow it.

Should that say....

"They said they like my work and they will keep all my photos, but I did not want to sing up to envato elements - so today they deleted my portfolio."

It's just the way you've worded it, it sounds like they've deleted all your photos from your portfolio, but they're going to hold on to them anyway... and just do whatever they want with them.

I had about 3200 images there and they want to keep 629 for Elements.  I have not seen my Photodune port shrink one iota and do not have any images in Elements yet.  I have no flipping clue what is happening.  Still making sales on PD, though.

so you singed in to elements?! - .......- they wanted my entire portfolio - more then 4500 photos - for practically free downlouds on elements - if they wanted a few hundreds maybe I would except it - and my sales on pd were pathetic - i don t understand them ...

Funny, today they killed my port except for the 629 images. I did not agree to the terms until a week ago when they confirmed i can delete my account if i do not like the performance or royalties.  So i guess it will take a while to see how it goes. In the end they killed 2500 images.
