Well ..... it has been over a month now and I see nothing changed. Is this an "on going" issue or a dead one?

Realistically speaking if I would be a buyer I am already in dollar bin store anyway. Things are so cheap so I wonder if anybody is buying smaller sizes?

 I really don't know what to think anymore, really ..but mela has a point there John !
If buyers can pick up a L or XL of my own images elsewhere for a few cents on sub, it's unlikely
they are going to buy the same thing from my port with you at a much much higher price.
I love the promise of a fatter commission, but it's already becoming apparent this optimism is
quite unrealistic.
Where do we go from here? I don't know! Maybe make Cutcaster contributors go image exclusive in exchange for the premium Cutcaster promises.
I guess the ball's entirely in the buyer's court for now.

Hey, it's still good to see you here John. You rock !

I think a lot of people miss the notion that most (traditional) buyers when it comes to images under 50 bucks are not that price sensitive. So if the image is priced 4, 14, or 40 bucks it wont matter alot.  Having the right image is the most important.

JOhn, you may be right. Howveer, remember Photo Shelter? They had the same vision as you did. When they closed down, the CEO said the problem was trying to break the mindset of the buyers to pay more for better images. They even took on Getty directly in their forum, which I am sure you remember as you had that on your front page as well. As we see micro getting close and closer towards free images, how do you propose to (break the mindset of the buyers to pay more) ?

This is not a contradiction to your response to tan510jomat. I too wish you succeed with your own vision with Cutcaster.

Just finishing browsing in CC and noticed that the "price by size" option has been activated.  It looks good, John.  It's great to see that you are sticking with it.  Keep up the great work and make lots of money ... and share with me.   ;D

Hope I haven't spoiled the release?  I had a question but maybe should email you? 
Sorry if I jumped the gun.

Surely there are a million monkeys with a million cameras out there.

Wow.  So now we are monkeys?   :o

He did mention a million monkeys with a million cameras. He also mention they would produce one image that buyers want. We are going to need more reviewers!!
