So for about a week I noticed Yuri being the 1st on "top 10 photographers" list. Fair enough, he's got the quantiy and quality. However, looking through his pictures I noticed that his rank is Platinum. Now c'mon... this is at short time after they (depositphotos) made a blog entry about Valua Vitaly being the first to break the barrier of Green rank.
I don't know if ranking means anything, but if you play around with the site it appears that it means better search placement.
I wrote them, demanding an explanation about the fairness of the procedure. They didn't answer so far - it's been a few days.
I will also be content with Gold ranking, thanks a lot. Everyone else, make here a note about what rank would you like to have and maybe (just maybe) someone at DepositPhotos takes notice, right?  ::)

How fair is this?

It's never fair...it's all about money.

When you have the port that Yuri has, you can name your own ticket. The rest of us "regular" contributors have to put up or shut up.   :'(

Special deals for the biggest/high profile contributors is a fact of life amongst the smaller agencies. This one isn't the only one and won't be the last.
