Hi

Do you know any software or a programmer who can develop tool to easily mass deactivate Dreamstime Images?

I asked them to change my username but they simply dont want to.
I asked them to close my account but they dont want to.
I asked them to deactivate all my images and they reply I must do it... one by one   :o

I am a contributor, how do I close my account?

You can disable all files approved more than six months ago at any time. You are allowed to disable 30% of files uploaded in the recent six months however 70% must be kept online for six months from their approval date. You can disable the remaining 70% after six months pass. Once the files are disabled, nobody is able to view/access them, except for you. The files will remain in our offline database for 12 months until all liabilities (refunds, potential copyright infringements, etc) concerning them are cleared off, then they are automatically deleted.
The account cannot be closed until the above requirements of the contract expire. Accounts with activity (license/download) cannot be deleted, as they can be referenced internally in regards to past licensing. However, they can be blocked from public access.
More account closure details can be found in our Terms and Conditions.

How many are you talking about? Pay a kid to sit in front of the computer and do it. Do you have any neices, nephews, neighbor kids who want to earn a few bucks?

You could talk to the microstocksubmitter guys.  If you paid them to program something I'm sure they could do it.  They created a tool to disable images on Fotolia.

Otherwise you could pay a virtual assistant in India to do it.

You should look into a browser macro recorder and see if you can identify a pattern to repeat.  This article might help you newbielink:http://www.howtogeek.com/113789/how-to-automate-repetitive-web-browser-tasks-with-imacros/ [nonactive]

And sales in the DT? I had all of last year and this year not selling almost anything, it seems odd that a DT in the BIG 4 ! But things are changing fast, so i guess Microstock is different than before 2013: (

Why FT and DT are in the top 4 I have no idea. years ago yes. Not now. Unless newcomers expectations are much Lower than the good old days.Especially FT.

I may be mistaken, but I believe that it has to do with sales and downloads, not expectations or popularity.
