they make you advertise for them?? WOW classy

isnt bruce already mega rich in the first place?? why wud he need to tap his contributors to get air space...freaking weird.

Why are you so angry at Stocksy that you feel the need to bump as many old threads as possible?

And no, they don't actually force anyone to spam their Facebook friends.

Do I sound anggry? haha HELL YES IM ANGRY.

are they really promising to share profits? why dont they just give 90% or whatever upfront? Why this game of "sharing at end of year" Sounds like a corporate trick.

And that guy is already mega rich...how many gold tipped, ivory back scratches does he need to afford?

he should be giving back to photographers, not taking from them, he is ASKING US to spend OUR MONEY to advertise for him?? OUTRAGEOUS!!!

Are you just angry because you can't get in?

If I were an editor I'd be doing my darnedest to make sure I didn't let someone like you in, even if the quality and subject matter of your photos was exactly what I was looking for. Manners matter. You're not doing yourself any favors.

its like they dont take me seriously, like my work is so bad, they wont even bother to respond. I have 1200 images on SS and istock so i dont know why my exclusives dont make it on stocksy. They surely are bewildering.

Or it's like they have over 4000 applicants for only 500 slots, and a very small team responding to everyone. 

are they really promising to share profits? why dont they just give 90% or whatever upfront? Why this game of "sharing at end of year" Sounds like a corporate trick.

Because a company needs to spend money to grow, and because a company costs money to run?  Contributors get 50% royalties, 100% on extended licenses, and an annual dividend.  That's just how the co-op is set up. 

And that guy is already mega rich...how many gold tipped, ivory back scratches does he need to afford?

Do you realize "that guy" is no longer the CEO?  The CEO of Stocksy is Brianna Wettlaufer, and Stocksy has a board of directors making decisions.  There is no "that guy" swimming around in his Scrooge McDuck vault while cackling at the misfortune of photographers.

he is ASKING US to spend OUR MONEY to advertise for him?? OUTRAGEOUS!!!

Once again... no.  No one is asking contributors to spend money to advertise Stocksy.

Hi ber...,

I have to admit from reading your posts, I didnt think you had applied at all. I mean, it is obvious with any kind of application, wether you are applying for a job, a business partnership, a scholarshipthat being polite is a normal part of human interaction. Why should anyone let you in, when you are already rude and aggressive while waiting outside?

Even if your images were better than those of the 4000 other applicants, a small agency lives through teamwork, a coop even more.

Many people are sad or frustrated because they are waiting for a reply or because their application was declined. But you dont see them being rude about it, the way you are.

It is perfectly possible to express frustration and also critique in a respectful way.

I'm glad it's finally out there: part of your acceptance into Stocksy is based on your behaviour. Those who have been mouthing off here are showing that they aren't going to be good on the Stocksy team. I'm not sure why it needed to be said.  You know Sean is here, and you know he has influence at Stocksy, why would you mouth off if you wanted to get in?
