I've just noticed that one of DT admins, Sangiorzboy, has just uploaded 7! images for assignment. Is this fair for other contributors?? They rejected all images I sent for this assignment and now allow one of its admins to upload 7 images. All of them duplicated, he had those images at his portfolio and now he has submitted them for assignment without removing the old ones

Do you think that if any of us do that it would be allowed??


But I know that if I put this on the forums the thread will be deleted

Everybody can upload up till 10.

Admins have to go through the acceptance process too. Maybe his shots were good, and yours didn't make the grade. Hard to tell why, since you don't have a portfolio link here, or you don't post the rejects.

That's a good strategy for images that have some sales potential, and that you want to bless with level 5 at once. Of course, after approval for the assignment, you should delete the old ones. You probably catched Sangiorzboy between the approval and the deactivation. Check again tomorrow. The DT database takes at least 24h to adjust.

Yes, threads about rejections are not allowed on the DT forum.
But, having had a look, it's quite interesting to see he has a very high view count for being so short online. I always wondered if there are rating clubs at work at the assignment.  :P

Well if that's the case, ahum, vote for ME;D

i am confused here too.
there is ASSIGNMENT... the monthly contest.

and then there is "Assignment", some photographer from USA,
who i have been informed that is actually someone with inside connections to DT, perharps another CEO of DT like Achilles, or a reviewer, or a shareholder...
who gets priority in the exposure for DT.

this is truly confusing to me.
when i read Assignment has just commented on your photograph.
which Assignment is this?

but more importantly, is it true that "Assignment" the photographer
gets favourite treatment by DT in the keyword search, etc.?
if so, this sounds a bit skewed for the rest of us common earthlings.
are the gods in DT really playing dice with us too, like many indies
accuse IS of doing with their exclusives vs indies.

sorry if this is a can of worms, but if i can't ask anyone here,
who can i ask ? ;)

Don't look too hard for conspiracies. "Assignment" is the portfolio wholly owned by Dreamstime of contributors that sold the rights of their assignment photos, included the copyright. You can choose that when you participate in the assignment: (1) escalate to level 5, (2) sell the rights.

Look here.

This portfolio lists photography created by contributors and wholly-owned by Dreamstime. For more wholly owned content you can visit the Studio portfolio.

"Assignment" has many referred members, none with a portfolio, probably buyers. Perhaps a way to keep referral earnings in house.

Whoever informed you really knows his business :)) But why didn't you read the description from Assignments' profile?

LOL do you think those are many?
Assignments has the user ID 1. Those users have all accidentally put 1 for referral id when filling the registration form.
Any other conspiracies I can help with? :))

Any other conspiracies you can help with, Achilles?
(read my signature_...
my name is not Paris or Hector, I have no quarrels with Achilles !!!"  ;D ;D ;D
