I just found a check box in my DP profile, reading "disable partner sales" (go to your profile and scroll all the way down).
Is that new or did I just not see it before?

I know this thread. I've been in there from page 1.
But I have never before seen the option to opt out from partner sales on their website. I sent them an e-mail to get out of those deals, I am sure at that time that check box in my profile did not exist yet - at least I can't remember ever seeing it. That's why I am asking.

Dirkr - You are correct. I dont remember seeing this earlier. I had asked (via DP support) to get me off of all partner sites. I see this new check box today and it is already checked for me (Disable partner sales)

Mine is checked too (I asked to be removed from API_resellers and partner sites) and don't remember having seen this check box before...

Must be new. The option was not there, when we started the thread. I see this as a small success! But you can't  say precisely, this switch is an eyecatcher  8)

Sorry, couldn't help myself...

Would be interesting to hear from someone who has not opted out of DP partner sales to know what they see in the check box (Checked or Un-Checked).

Default is unchecked. I just opted out.

Nice, now I wait official email about this new opt-out feature. I assume that contributors get email. After that, maybe I restore my images back online.

My stuff is back up on Photogenica.

I'm so ******* sick of these companies. I knew years ago that I shouldn't trust DP, they were shady as heck right from the start. But I went along with the crowd and decided to give them a chance. I don't blame anyone but myself for my decisions, but man am I kicking myself right now for buying into the hype.

Edited to add: The attitude I just got from the chat rep isn't helping. what is going on with these companies? They're annoyed that I'm complaining about their non-compliance with multiple requests to keep my work out of the partner program?

Then don't have an opt-out. Don't be a crap company halfway. Just go all the way and stop pretending to give a ****.

Sorry for the rant. Just losing my mind this week between these jokers and Fotolia.

Checked my DP Profile and found a pre-checked box captioned 'Disable partner sites'.  This is probably done by them following my many emails to remove my content from all partner sites.  Maybe I should be jumping with joy while constantly checking Shotshop etc to make sure my content does not appear there, by mistake!!

Could it be that they all realise now (or maybe already knew but held off as long as possible) that having no opt out is against EU legislation?

Dear Most Microstock Co.s

If these outside deals were fair as in little more equally lucrative for both parties we'd be clambering to be apart of them.... But instead you make deals that are the next step up "pirating" our intellectual property.... What I'm trying to say with quit strong language is let's get out of the "back room" and get back to all of us making money together !

WE CAN ALL MAKE $$$


My Very Best :)

Mine are there too but the file number is from rf123, so it's 123 doing the f-use dance.

How about the first step on a long road that has no foreseeable end?

If that's true I hope someone explains it to Veer, Fotolia (has a DPC opt out button still no opt out for other partners) and other agencies with forced third party partner programs.

Mine are there as well, with Deposit's file numbers, but only the thumbnails, if I click on them I don't get a file detail page (as I get it for other files) but get redirected to the home page.

Seems to be they are at least not available to buy...

hi all
deposit has responded to my request for clarification about the sales of shotshop:

"Your royalty rate is fixed and depends whether Shotshop purchase your files by credits or by subscriptions directly on depositphotos.com. Once your file is sold by credits, you will get your commissions that you usually receive  when your files are sold by credits, depending  on your contributor's level."

shotshop then buy credits or subscriptions on deposit in accordance with the demands of its customers? I do not understand ...

Agreed. My guess is that they wait for things to calm down then sneak our work back on to those low ball partner sites. My sales since sending so many nasty emails to them have all but dried up. Should have listened to the peeps here at msg who said all along to watch out for these fks.

I do not know you, you do not know me. English is not my native language, I'm sorry, you have no right to label me as a fake just because I'm interested in this post of deposit that I'm concerned.
I follow and agree on the battles of this forum (boycott fotolia etc.) and I think this forum has a fundamental merit to the professionals who work in ms, someone here said that this forum is inhospitable, I can confirm, it is.

If you quote the proper "quote" I can respond accordingly. Nothing I ever say in this forum relates to English as a second language or me generally misinterpreting someone. So if I said something that rattled your cages you have every right to call me out on it, but just quote the right post. If this is the right post than I don't see one iota of verbiage that even relates to what you said. I was quoting enstoker not you.

This is a terrible agency to both contributor and buyer.

It's the only website where I never sold anything, which I find very hard to believe.
Even on Canstock I sell once in a while.

Today I deactivated all my images in this dodgy company and it felt great.
