would it be too ridiculous to have it up there?

I have been looking more and more into Alamy and all top contributors, average etc seem to be uploading hard there too.. as they have a big RF collection I do believe a poll result would be quite interesting no? honestly I have the feeling that everybody is always hiding their work in Alamy..

hope that this Hasnt been discussed before

Good point - this reminded me to fill in the poll, and I realized that Alamy wasn't in the list of options, even though Panther and Zoonar (that sell at somewhat higher prices) are there. BTW - I know we have talked about Zoonar in the past, it did manage some sales last month. All of $31! Better than many of the smaller sites.

I'd vote to include Alamy in the list of sites.

Two things to remember:
  • Some people put only RM pics there, esp if iStock exclusives; and some have both ( so you'd need to specify whether to include or exclude RM).
  • On Alamy, people tend to quote the total figure of the sale, so you'd need to specify that it's the amount due to the contributor that has to be counted, to put it on a par with the other agencies.

Hi there :) Zoonar still zero (only 2 months there) Alamy not far from that but I see something there, hope!

I see, nice points, I guess it would be hard unless there are Alamy RM and RF, confusing perhaps..

Well, Alamy is the one non-microstock site with enough MSG member interest to have its own dedicated active board/sub-forum here, so it could be useful to include it in poll.

Having separate line for RF & RM would give extra info, but I think putting all net earnings together could also be reasonable. (For ex, neither my RF nor RM on Alamy are available on microstock.)

something like this could be at bottom of poll:
