For the most part, dreamstime is one of my favorite microstock sites for many reasons.  The only trouble is with their approval rating system which I try to keep above 80%, but then get a whole batch rejected because I included a po box in the model release instead of a house address. 

I know it's my fault, as I've had this problem before and I thought I got all my model releases fixed, but I guess I missed one. 

The other problem is I always find it a guessing game when to upload a model release if you can't see the model's face.  I couldn't see the models face so didn't include a release and was told to upload one becuase the model is the main subject of the image.  The problem is I've uploaded model releases in the past with models who you can't see the face and receive a rejection stating that the model release isn't needed for this image.

Yes very irksome.  Like I said though, it's MAINLY ;) my fault.

yes your fault you shouldn't upload pictures with people in it to dreamstime. They have a strange MR-policy that shouldn't be supported.

When uploading a new model release, I always upload only 1 photo of the shoot to see if there is a problem with the model release. This way, you don't get the whole batch rejected. Although I never had a model release rejected on DT.

Just had one rejected for having a model release... torso of a male swimmer.. from the knees to the neck. No model release required...

That is a good idea, except I already have hundreds of images accepted with that model and that release.  No problem recently with the release.  I thought I fixed it a while back but I guess I didn't and dreamstime didn't notice or care until now.  I just wish they would send me an email and say something like, "Please fix you model release (reason) and we will review your photos." instead of just rejecting everything and lowering my acceptance ratio.

Write to Erin. I had images approved with just a foot in the image and a release attached to it.

Usually agencies are happy to have a release even for body parts. It's an additional insurance for selling RF.

dragon_fang, you love DT
but if this persists to become Irreconciable Difference, would this mean soon there could be a Trial Separation between you and DT ?   ;D

This is only an annoyance for me.  I will soon fix the two model releases in error to their specifications and everything will be just peachy from here on out.  I would really like to get my approval rating over 80% again though. 

So... sorry there will not be a separation from Dreamstime and me.  Like I said, I really do love like them very much, and I hope kissing their ass time will solve all issues.  ;)

I wish DT can set up a review procedure, like the one in IS.

I wish DT would do what every other site does when you forget to attach the release, just send a note asking you to attach the release! Who does it benefit by rejecting the image and making the contributor have to upload it again?

I also don't upload more then one model at a time, that way I don't get confused when selecting the form.
