And now to get OT for a moment...
How do you think the message below (a screenshot from IS just a couple of minutes ago) will help sales?

Saw that. Not good.

Back on topic: I am happy that the StockXpert crew is back up and running again, too.

I really want to encourage everyone to join this site. 50% is a fair commission so please help support it, this may be the only way to affect agencies that are paying insultingly low commissions.

Yes, I might be a dreamer. But anyways, the site looks nice and I'm applying right away.

I'm still waiting to see what it is 50% of.  ;D I couldn't find any vectors on the site for a reference point.

Well that's a very valid point! By looking at the frontpage's "on demand" prices there's a "vectors" link and by the look of it I just thought it was $20 a vector but come to think of it, those sizes really don't make much sense. Low, medium, high, "super" vectors ? I guess either a glitch or I'm getting something wrong. Perhaps "super" = EPS and low/medium/high = JPG

Yeah I wasn't sure because I think all my vectors are "super". Maybe, they should have an even higher category "super awesome".  ;D

Seriously though, I was thinking it was a tiered system like IS. I just wasn't sure what the tiers were.

It's tiered by vector detail:

Vectors*

Code   Detail   Price
   Low detail   1 credits
   Medium detail   5 credits
   High detail   10 credits
   Super high detail   20 credits

I like that subs are capped at max 2 MP.

Ahh of course  :) Didn't think of that!

Given that I'm accepted, I hope most of mine will be priced at $10 like they used to price all of them at StockXpert

Interesting point. It looks like you can't even purchase the vectors with subs too. They are definitely making it tempting. I guess I'll have to read through the site.

This is good news!  Thanks for posting Lee.  :)

I said when StockXpert closed that if the original owners opened another site I would support them and I will.  The pricing and royalty split seem fair.  And as already mentioned, these guys have a history of building a successful site and of very good contributor relations.  Just submitted my application. 

If you can just send them in a hard drive that makes my job worlds easier.

Well, you may be in luck.

I do not know why you all are so happy ?

The same people  sold their entire market and customers to Getty...
You all weren't happy about it and greedy TS...
Now they are working on a new project that will one day likely to sell to someone else, and you will again get the crumbs from table  of "great new owner". Probably 0,10 $ per dl...

Is this a sadomasochistic ritual, or you simply forget quickly....?

I think they sold their controlling shares to Jupiter, not Getty.  Getty then bought Jupiter and closed StockXpert.  I don't blame them selling, who here wouldn't accept a big payout if it was offered to them?  It isn't greed, its sensible business and I doubt many people would turn down the money they were offered.  It looks like they didn't sign a clause to prevent them starting a rival business, that was a good move.  Hopefully they wont need to sell again, as they are now more financially secure.

I don't know all the details so hope you're right ...
I  have nothing against them,they were kind and friendly,  but it would be big mistake for us to do again Sizif's job.
