Today I got 8 email Image Not Selected messages on images that were uploaded and on the site for more than 4 yrs. Is this a glitch or is this a re-editing of content? 3 of the images were from set with dozens of downloads and about 30 similar images. Anyone else get these?

I got four.  Bizarre.

"Thank you for contacting Dreamstime.
We often perform routine reviews of the existing database and we may remove files that are already online but no longer meet criteria or have copyright issues.
I hope this clarifies why you have older files refused now.
Let me know if you have other questions or require further assistance."

Not sure exactly what they mean. There are still a dozen other files from same shoot that have totaled 35 downloads.

It's not like I really care. Dreamstime has never been a producer for me.

Ok, how stupid is this?  This image (and a few others):
https://depositphotos.com/95429902/stock-photo-gymnast-cute-girl-balancing-on.html

Due to child protection laws and internet watchdogs rules we can no longer keep such images online as they are considered inappropriate or interpretable.
We are in the process of removing all such imagery from our online database.
Thank you for your understanding.

Just when you think the MS companies cannot do anything stupider they somehow find a why! Why not take all the cat and dog images off lines as well --due to animal protection laws...

I've been trying to turn those emails off for years with no luck. Have them marked to go straight to spam folder so I never see them.

Shutterstock is also having new policy to stop contributor for using keyword like "diabetic" or "handicapped parking" because it sounds inappropriate.

They want you to use "a person with diabetes" or "accessible parking" now.

I didn't have any problems getting images with the word "diabetic" in keywords and title approved on SS just last week.

I also had eight killed today and another dozen over the last week or so.  Stupid.  One is a businessman with a noose around his neck.  Inappropriate.

I also had numerous images deleted since June.  This is a response I received about an image of mine of a child sticking their tongue out.
   
"The image became unacceptable in light of new child policy regulations. In short we have to remove and no longer accept any images that may be deemed by regulators as inappropriate. This includes this kind of images where children stick their tongues out. While we consider them innocent there are people out there who dont so we must prevent any inappropriate usage and the only way to do this is to systematically remove everything we had online and no longer accept such images."

Seems like that could apply to almost any subject  :-\

Exactly.  Any image can be used inappropriately.  Theyre taking the lazy way out.  Instead of doing their job to police usage.

I also have very nice photos of mating birds (Golden-fronted Woodpeckers and Northern Shoveler ducks come quickly to mind) that were rejected by several of the stock sites.

These are "normal scenes" that you find in every tree or marsh in springtime.

Kinda puritanical, ain't it?

This is what politically correct word policing does. But you see, we're more in tune and have better understanding of sensitive issues now. Just keep changing what things are called or how we're supposed to speak and think, to keep us all guessing. Making the world a better place?

Will this mean that where I park for "Senior Citizen Only" will have to be changed to Enabled Elderly, since I'm not Handicapped. Oh that's right, there are no handicaps anymore, just challenges, and special access. Does Diabetic hint of fat. (or in polite terms large people). I thought it was as simple as a medical condition, kids have it, old folks who aren't large have the condition.

Oh I get it... we won't be able to say cholesterol either, just LDL challenged.  ;D Hi my name is Pete and I'm LDL challenged. Group session in unison: "hello Pete" Then I go on to confess to my fat eating, saturated and trans fats transgressions. I had an all egg yolk omelet on Saturday, I feel so guilty. But Lipitor is in the pill box, one every night.

Meanwhile someone needs to make the ADA "aware" and wake them up, that it's not right to say Diabetes.

Now it hit me too.  Reason: "Image may be inappropriate for stock" 
What's inappropriate about this? Sure, I know some people don't like muzzles on dogs, but I also don't like eggplants, no reason to forbid photos of them. In many European countries dogs have to wear muzzles in places like public transportations. It's a law - so what's inappropriate about showing a dog with a muzzle?

And what exactly is Dreamstime's plan here? Remove all photos in the database related to certain everyday topics so their customers have to go somewhere else if they need photos of these topics?  :o

Same here. Ones that sell are being removed. My last one was a piggy bank looking at a noose.  That sold fairly frequently.  Have no idea what WOKE or virtue signaling message that brings to qualify for removal.  Violence? S_H_I_T, it's reality in an inferential context.

The same here, last week 2-3 images, I said OK, they don't need them anymore. This week another huge bunch of images, all kids doing gymnastics or playing on the beach.
And the reason? Not a Stock image.
So, I assume, they don't want images with kids anymore.

And yes, all were good sellers. They are not even listed in refused images or deactivated images, they are just lost in Nirvana.

Can confirm, in Europe muzzle in public transports is a law, even in some parks or outside areas.

Unfortunately we can no longer keep online images with Caucasian white people wearing American Indian attire (or any other type of native people). This is now considere cultural appropriation so images, even with children, need to be removed.

Watch out, anyone wearing sombreros!

Holy cow, no one can wear a costume anymore, or anything.

Tell the Minnesota Vikings their mascot and team is "cultural appropriation" and inappropriate. I always thought they were an insult to Nordic heritage anyway.  ;) And as someone of Italian heritage, I'm offended by anyone dressing like a gangster and carrying a Tommy Gun, plus, my other half being Transylvanian, I want you all to stop with the Vampire disrespect!

You may not dress in a cape and wear fake fangs, I'm terribly offended. Besides Vlad Teps wasn't even Transylvanian in the first place!

Hey can we still dress like Columbus or Custer?  ::)

My neighbor is 25% native American and looks pure Caucasian white male. He is member of his tribe here as well. So he cannot wear his tribe clothing anymore?

I just had two images of Grey Wolves feeding at a White-tail Deer Carcass (uploaded in 2018) removed. Apparently blood and gore - however natural - is offensive now.

And I have no recourse to argue it.

Your loss Dreamstime - the other 2 sites that have them will get the benefits I guess.

I can only guess, no noose images, which could on a distant really bizarre planet be representative of a lynching. Problem with that is, lynching is not a criminal attack that limited to people of color, but somehow now it's forbidden as racist.

Example:


Also:
The March 14, 1891, New Orleans lynchings were the murders of 11 Italian Americans in New Orleans, Louisiana, by a mob for their alleged role in the murder of city police chief David Hennessy after some of them had been acquitted at trial. It was one of the largest single mass lynchings in American history.
The lynching took place the day after the trial of nine of the nineteen men indicted in Hennessy's murder. Six of these defendants were acquitted, and a mistrial was declared for the remaining three because the jury failed to agree on their verdicts. There was widespread suspicion in the city that an Italian network of criminals was responsible for the killing of the police chief, in a period of anti-Italian sentiment and rising crime. Believing the jury had been bribed, a mob broke into the jail where the men were being held and killed eleven of the prisoners, most by shooting. The mob outside the jail numbered in the thousands and included some of the city's most prominent citizens. American press coverage of the event was largely congratulatory, and those responsible for the lynching were never charged.

And now they are killing Columbus Day which was established as an Italian American celebration of history and pride. Lets lynch and erase history. Wait though, will pictures of Columbus or his ships be the next subject to be banned? I shouldn't give them any ideas. Although we could upgrade and make it Lady Gaga day, or Madonna day or Frank Sinatra day? All famous Italian American's? The lefties would love Jane Fonda Day?  ;D

Is this their new way of saying "this photo hasn't sold in 24 months"... because I didn't remove any of them and did not check if I could improve keywords.  I no longer get that message...

I had a couple of a raccoon in a trap that were kicked out - not appropriate.  They've been online for a while and sell fairly often, I assume to pest-control companies (which was my intention).  Now that I think about it. I also have a couple of a mouse in a snap trap that they probably will pull, as well as one of a cat with a chipmunk.  Can't imagine what they are afraid of - raccoons almost never sue.

As someone with an Irish grandfather, I always wonder how Notre Dame gets away with their Fighting Irish mascot - making fun of drunk, fighting Irish I would think would raise some eyebrows, but apparently we don't care enough to object.
