I hate DT's refund policy. I wish they'd at least let us know what the reason for the refund actually was, instead of just firing off an email with a list of every possible refund reason known to man. If I'm going to have $15 yanked from my account (as was done earlier today) I should at least get a decent explanation as to why.

That and I hate that credit card fraud is one of the possible given reasons. In what other business is it acceptable to change fraudulent credit card charges back to the supplier of the product. I doubt that if I go to Sears and buy a Toro lawn mower with a stolen credit card that Sears can charge the loss back to Toro.

Fraudulent credit card charges should be eaten by the company, not the contributor.

I totally agree^^.  But don't all the sites charge it back to us?

i notice dreamstime had their own portfolio? and sort by latest upload..and i saw numerous of office people shots.. like trying creative angle...but the color looks very weird..with a halo that created by flash around those people..and white balance is simple funny..there are even 2 similar shots that different white balance.

i am speechless.

Given the URL, it looks as though that's their assignments folder.

I don't know much about that, as I've never participated in their assignments, but perhaps someone else knows more about that folder.

click the link, the 'username' is 'assignments' and there is another 'studio'..

the 'assignments' account said it is owned by contributors but all copyrighted as dreamstime, this 'assignments' even compete in the assignments contest too..ha.

When you enter an assignment on Dreamstime, you are given the option to either escalate the image (if accepted) to level 5, or to cash $25 immediately, and transfer the rights to Dreamstime.

Sometime after the assignment closes, Dreamstime transfers the image to the "assignment" portfolio. They then get the royalties over the sales of those images. If the image in question wins, the original photographer still claims the prize.

oic..so some of the images are from assignments that contributors had sold the right..thanks.

but those office shots are still too creative to be passed in any microstock agency..

I haven't seen the rejections you are talking about (I haven't been uploading much lately) but here is a positive thing that is NOT driving me crazy: I requested a payout yesterday morning and yesterday afternoon I had my money. I give a big thumbs up to that!

+1.  Payouts still coming in on time like clockwork :)

I requested a payout yesterday. I received it today! :D
