Last two days, whenever I try to log in, it simply says, "Something went wrong."

I thought it was just me, then came here to look. Actually relieved to find that it's not just me!

Contributor site back up in the UK. Tried uploading a single file but it vanished into "your file is being processed". Obviously not fully back to normal yet :(

Got a sale from Kazakhstan so at least its not a zero day.

I uploaded a video and it got processed, keyworded and now in pending.  Ive also submitted the 70 photos i had waiting.

FTP seems to work.

Keyword suggestion still doesn't  - it loads but cant find any search results.

Luckily it happened on the weekend, and not during the weekdays.

Sadly, it really doesn't make much of a difference for me. My sales suck on any day now... :-\

My opinion is as they are audited accounts and Oringer could go to prison for a very long time if they were fraudulent they are most likely correct. As has been said over and over again new supply far outstrips demand therefore most contributors will lose out. Its really that simple.

In one of my past lives if I had a dollar for everytime a backup failed I'd be very rich ;-). (well have a few dollars anyway)

I guess their 'profitabitity' was at the expence of a working backup system.

I think the explanation is that for a company once described by its owner as an "IT business" they are not very good at IT. They have mountains of cash....the profitability is of course at contributors expense.

Galleries not loading at all (timing out or no images)
And the main shutterstock.com buyers portal is either very slow or more often than not, timing out with error 500.

I wonder what todays excuse will be.

Its down again and is frustrating.

though its not any IT error.. there is some manhole fire which is causing trouble.
See their twitter handle for updates. I hope things get back to normal soon.

A manhole fire IS an IT issue.
It means they have absolutely no effective backup or redundancy planning and the whole thing relies on a single point of failure.

They also said that was completely fixed yesterday.

Yes, they should have a backup plan for such incidents, lets hope they take this seriously and add some alternative measures for such happenings.

It was fixed yesterday (maybe temporary) but its again today.

Same. Worst Monday in years. I'm hoping it picks up in the upcoming days.

I've had a submitted photo sitting there for 4 days now awaiting review. It's never taken them that long to review a submission. Is anyone else experiencing a very long wait to get their submissions reviewed? If anyone from Shutterstock is reading this, can you please let me know what's going on? This doesn't inspire confidence in Shutterstock.

What used to take an hor or two now takes two days for me.

As to Shutterstock reading this well forget it and even if they do they don't give a rats ass what you, I or any other contributor say or think.
