A while back BS insisted you enter seven words in the description field which I was doing but now I noticed since the weekend they aren't reading this data so you have to type in the information in fresh or copy and paste rather annoying.

They are accepting vectors though you can't upload eps files for previously rasterized images yet. earnings are a bit low ($1) compared to StockXpert,DT and 123 ($2.50, $2 and $1.50)

I noticed the same that title and description don't get read anymore. I got a reply from support saying "their technicians are aware of the problem and working on it".

Well,let's see ...

I was unaware of this and uploaded two images to BS last night.  After reading this thread, I went to BS and looked at the images in the approval queue.  Both of them had the description and keywords I had entered in the IPTC fields.  Problem resolved?

Problem is still there for me (FTP upload). Just tried it. I will not upload until the problem is fixed.

All the best,

I was having trouble with FTP uploading (kept getting busy error messages) so uploaded with HTTP instead.  Suppose the problem may be related to that?

Seems like many of the stock sites are doing some changes this past week.
-> istock was having maintenace for a few hours yesterday
-> Shutterstock was having problems and the forums say they are upgrading for maintenance or something
-> Featurepics recently changed and tweak their website
-> Big Stock just allowed Vectors and have changes in upload
