IF YOU WANT TO REMOVE COMPLETE CONTENT FROM DT

I HATE DT. Now that this is out of the way here are the facts. I disabled all my files with them after waiting the required 6 month waiting period. Their FAQ states

" You can disable all files uploaded more than six months ago at any time."

Since other sites were slow to close my accounts and I am some time away from my next payout I enabled my bestsellers at DT in the mean time. Turns out the fine print in the DT contributor agreement has this little tidbit.

" Images that were disabled and then enabled again will be counted as new submissions, no matter of their original upload date "

*. I know I should have read the whole  thing but it is burried on page 11 (after 6500 words). And I had not heard of this passus before.

Anybody has any input in regards towards contacting sombody other than the official channel because I have not gotten a response in 3 days.

This suxs.

Don't know. Maybe it's sunspots or something. It'll get better - eventually.

Thanks for the warning - I'm sorry you found this out the hard way. They really don't make it easy to leave, do they :)

... They really don't make it easy to leave, do they :)

No surprise there, because we provide them with a product that produces a seizable profit margin for them and any time we remove contents cuts into the supply of that product.

Stupid stupid me - hey forum police is it allowed to insult myself??

yes really leaf- I like this forum and you usually do a good job but I dont know why you deleted that one- it was an irritable, angry post- but I assume there arent any children here? I didnt see any problem with it.
I do hope dreamstime havent threatened you with legal action if you allow anything beyond a certain line? Youre usually more liberal than that.

quitting in bad faith is even more damaging to you, business-wise.
any future site will look at this in the same way as you applying for a job and badmouthing your previous employer.

also, i disagree with timburton:
 Leaf is right in a way to be the "forum police".
look at it this way, you came to his forum.
and in my opinion, Leaf could actually be doing you a favor.
as i mentioned above, badmouthing does nobody harm except perharps to yourself.

take care, and be careful about burning your bridges. ;)

That's exactly it ... I am not allowed to quit. I am forced to stay. And the rules describing this policy are burried whereas the "simplyfied a.k.a. less restrictive" version is in the FAQ where all crucial policies should be spelled out.

As I said before

Stupid. stupid ME.

Do you think we should have the same opinion to participate to this forum ? Should it be like microstock smiling-happy-jumping-fake word ?
Thank you Leaf, Microstockgroup rocks, way to go.
Cheers

PS
I hate DT too

No, dreamstime has not threatened me.

being irritated and angry is obviously ok if you just say that and refrain from making libelous claims about a company.  I hope people are free to say when they are please or unsatisfied with an agency but it has to be said as a personal feeling and not a libelous fact.... if that made any sense.

i'm confused ... are you angry with Leaf, or happy with him.
you sound ambivalent ;D ;D ;D

my original comment wasn't to side Leaf at all. it was to say that he is after all responsible for the forum. if anything goes awry, it's not you, me , or whatever , but Leaf. so why shouldn't he "police" the forum?

also, my concern to the creator of this thread was not to chastise him, but more to say that what we say can sometimes come back to haunt us. so it's better not to voice our displeasure too strongly.
there is a way to say to someone you don't like what he's saying... without going to the extreme.

Alright Leaf- youve gotta do what youve gotta do. Have a nice day now- and keep up the good work. I like this site. Wish Id thought of it...

I just wish somebody would have sounded the warning bell before I got sucker punched. The drastic language only served to hammer the point home that I dislike DT for their self serving attitude. But then again, business is all about self seving. But then again microstock is supposed to be a collaboration which when it boils down to it - is a very one sided collaboration. I know, I know if I do not like it I can go somewhere else. Then again, thats exactly what I was trying to do. Finally see my problem?
