Out of the million image submissions a week to SS I wonder how many are resubmissions and how many of those get approved on second or third submission? Reality is probably more like 600,000 original submissions per week, of which 300,000 are first time acceptances. All the other numbers involved are resubmissions.

SS want to cut cost? Remove the poor reviewing and reduce having to pay for the same image again more than once.

in a utopia of exemplary corporation, maybe. but in cut throat businesses where the shareholders are not holding your shares forever like you hold on to bluechip , the only interest is quick buck. they don't care if tomorrow there is no shutterstock.
also, when accounting for dollars, they never ask why little minions like reviewers are double dipping. it's like politics, they kill the bigger fish because the noise is louder.
cut cost on contributor eg flip the switch on 38 cents earners, and give the crumb earners the sales.
anyone care to make a little graph on how much the shareholders want to see
who get the shaft . just take a million images and multiply that by what? 6 cents?
also, remove the large earners we used to get eg 20 to 120 dollar SD.
multiply that too and what you get.

shafting contributors who made shutterstock please the shareholders more
than saying we will fire one, two, even ten renegade reviewers who came out of atilla womb.
what is that in dollars? minions... not millions. 8)

Did not read, but I have to say. On russian forum, contributors asked an SS representative about this. The official answer was NO.

Their IPO documents said differently. "Proprietary inspection software" was touted as a big differentiator for them. Since their rejections have gone wonkers, i suspect that they are still tweaking the dials and testing it, at least on a sub group of some kind.

Someone named charliegnomes was spamming all these old threads, thats why Stan posted those alerts, but it looks like all the spammy posts are gone. So Stans comments now look out of context.
