I don't care for any review time references on a stock agency web site, it's not something I'd consider "important".

CS reviews image in an appropriate time frame.

DT on the other hand is really pi$$ing me off in terms of review times. Sometimes it's more than 8 or 9 days.

Well I submitted some on the 18th when it said under 6hrs and I am still waiting!

And yesterday it said review in under 2 minutes????????????

Longest wait in quite some time.

And dont forget they are hiring reviewers right now so they are probably short handed.

Much as I like Canstock it is them that have put a prominent ad about waiting time and therefore making an "issue" of this. Their review times seemed to have increased greatly in the last month or so.

Let's see how long my uploads from earlier tonight take...

As quoted above, explanation given by Duncan from Canstock:
"We have different upload lines for different file types. So photos, illustrations, and videos are approved separately. The average on our front page is *all* approvals within the last hour."
Your "test" will therefore reveal no new information we do not already have. 

PS About 80% of sites I am contributing to (17 of them) are currently experiencing slow review times (inclusive of SS). As also mentioned above CS is busy appointing additional/new reviewers. One can thus assume that they are aware of the situation and are busy trying to resolve it. The time indication is however confusing and only makes sense if one takes note of Duncan's explanation.

Not really giving a big rat's patooty over review times.  I uploaded 300 images as a test.  They have been there a month and not one sale. 

Canstock failed!   >:(

I'll upload more when I see a download.

Guess that's where the big difference come in.  People who does make constant sales there does give a rat's patooty.

300 images and 1 month for a middle tier test. Think you should rather stick to the top 4 Warren, for your own sanity and piece of mind's sake  ;)

Yes, from the opposite perspectives. You stated it from yours, I did from ours ("Guess that's where the big difference come in").  :P

Well it is now a 4 day wait and the longest ever at CanStockPhoto.

I've also got some that have been in pending for 4 days and I've been trying all morning to get to the upload page but it just keeps coming up as an error.

Close to five days now. Slightly more than the advertised one minute...  >:(

Not that it really matters, but when it's so far off, they shouldn't boast with those short times in their ads.

Seems the problem persists - or is it just me?

My photos are queued pending for 5 days now and we are well into November. Not great at this time of year. But  I don't see any advertised review times on their home page any more...
On a more positive note, CS was the highest RPD of all my sites last month (though not the highest income by a long shot).

reviewing time is now way longer but I wont lose my sleep, pretty much I am more concerned about the 5 to 7 days at SS, seems it will never get back to the 24h

     Yeah  it's  taking  longer  to  review  but  the  final  outcome  is  more  important.  Approved  photos  =  jusitifiable  wait.  Because  approved  photos  leads  to  sales  and  the  waitng  period  doesn't  matter  anymore.

I'm not convinced.  314 images approved.  Waiting 2 months and still "No Sales."   :'(

I really do not know what is happening on CS.
Since they looking for new stuff, my sells drops !!!
Review time is almost 6-9days.
This happened OVER NIGHT !

Is it safe to upload ?

Can somebody from CS explain this ?

Thank You in advance.

I've only submitted two batches since the review times got longer but have had 100% acceptance so it's certainly safe to submit (unlike SS where the Focus Nazi is back).  I'm having a BME there by almost twice the previous best and we're not even halfway through the month so I'd say everything at CS is fine.

So glad to read your comment about the SS Focus Nazi. I was on the verge of cutting my pulses after having my sharpest pictures ever being refused a second time (after resizing down as well) for focus.

I think that on CS, DP,... almost all of us have 100 % acceptance.
This is also reason of my question :  Is it safe?
If somebody accepts everything what do You think about this ???
And also no or suddenly lower sells.
?

Duncan says CanStockPhoto is doing better than ever. Having BME every month.

So nothing is wrong with CanStockPhoto, it must be our photos. We need to step it up. But I think the utter and total crap that is accepted lately on CanStockPhoto cant be good for business. Buyers wont come back when they have to wade through pages of inferior sh+t. I am starting to think they have blind people reviewing photos now. Seriously.

     Got  an  image   that's  been  sitting  2  weeks.  A  little  long  even  if  they're  hiring  new  inspectors

That's unusually long - our wait time is presently under a week. I would guess that it either:

1) Has a new model release tagged to it

2) Has a model release with a problem tagged to it (check your "Release Manager" section)

3) Has a copyrighted keyword, or something that would flag it for extra attention by our legal staff

If the above 3 don't seem to fit, just open a support ticket with the image number and reference this thread. We'll be able to give you more information on what the issue is.
