Tomorrow huh. And wouldn't you know it I am having one of my Best Mondays Ever at DT. Probably won't get a single sale tomorrow.

And I don't want an iPad or whatever they call that Apple thingy. If I win it I hereby promise that I will donate it to Madelaide in case one of those kids asked Santa for one. (And I do have some images pending at DT, though I doubt somehow if a vector is going to be #10,000,000  :D)

Update from Achilles on the DT board:

The subscription royalties will be awarded at a double rate for today. As you know, they are not percentage based, but we count them in for this promotion. To keep things simple we just doubled them.

thanks for the info.

That seems like a good solution from Dreamstime.

They are true to their word, just got a .70 instead of .35 for a sub.

the 100% sale will be shown under 'comments', right?

I had one sale, but not sure is it 100% royalty, but there is a message under 'comments' with that file thumbnails.

No, there is no comments or anything saying it is a 100% sale. You can only know because the proceeds are 2x what they usually are for that type of sale.

^ Not true, I received a comment after a sale saying:

"Dear Steven,
We're celebrating our 10 millionth image today. We want to thank you for being a part of our dream and let you know that all images licensed today from your portfolio will award you 100% royalties."

Ah yes, ok true enough.  I got that message too I guess.  I feel that was a general message though - you won't be getting that for every sale today, or I actually I would guess that everyone got that message whether they had a sale or not.  What I was referring to was when you go on the earnings page it doesn't say anything about a 100% commission.

Now, where are my sales?

(I wish this 100% thing would have been yesterday when I had some good sales... :(  )

I'm seeing the 100% royalties coming in. I had a 5 credit sale and earned $5 on it, so I guess it looks like the 100% thing is working. Only a few sales so far today, but hopefully this will pick up as the US buyers start to wake up.

This is exciting!  And I have to say, really a class move of DT to have it fall on a Tuesday - normally one of the busiest days of the week.  I am sure they have some control over what day it fell on and it could have been the weekend, or during the Thanksgiving holiday. 

I am loving Dreamstime.  So nice that one of the agencies is still taking care of contributors!  Thanks DT!! :D

I'm not a big fan of DT but have to say this move is very classy. Hat off.
All greedy busters (FT, IS...) can learn a lot from DT in this moment.

Only one subs sale so far.  I would far rather they accepted more of my images than do this, I have lost motivation with DT.  Keep getting rejections for images that I am sure would make money.  My earnings are way down this year, buyers will have to look at graphic leftovers to see my new stuff.  That's one advantage with the newer sites, they don't have old lower quality images and accept more new ones.

Yes, congrats, but I can't help but see odd lighting and irrelevant keywords. What's going on in the top left corner?

I think I pissed someone at DT off because my sales are down over 80% from the past years average.  I likely won't even see a sale today  :'(

I bought 10 images today, paid 8 credits.  But the conversion didn't say that, nor the the sum of the required credits.  So I converted US$10 to 10 credits and used only 8.

I had a level 3 L sale late last night - missed the full earnings for just a little!!!
