May is almost finished. Still zero uploads for many of best microstockers: ... PhilDate

Phildate froze his port as "Phildate" but he is still happily uploading on DT under his other account, eastwestimaging.

Hi Rene,
there we go again :)
Dreamstime 'not - professional'?
Would you like to hear the whole story?
Not hard to find it, I remember reading it right here, on this forum.
Seeing how much interest you show to anything related to Dreamstime, I'm surprised you missed it.

Yuri's people were trying to upload previously rejected images. I would say that's not very professional either. And they were told to stop.
Then Yuri himself asked Achilles for some kind of 'special treatment'. I don't know the details but I know the outcome. Achilles refused.
He might have been a bit harsh, I don't know.
Yuri didn't like it and the 'not professional' story was born.
Voila!
But I agree. Yuri is a problem and I wish he would start uploading again.

Meanwhile you're fixed on Dreamstime, you're wasting a lot of energy chasing contributors' stats on DT and seem unable to let it go. That's a burden you don't need.
You're a professional, working with a professional agency, you're wearing a crown, plenty of precious gems and your life is good.
Let the less fortunate go on their merry way.
You're all set.

Ah, and by the way. After so many threads and so many months, you have failed to show me a single, valid reason to stop uploading to Dreamstime.
Can you think of one?
'Cause I can't.

I've heard the Yuri story before, and there is no way any of us knows exactly what transpired, but I am finding this to be kind of unprofessional...

I have been having a heck of a time this morning with searchs and looking at peoples portfolios on DT. I enter search terms and come up with 0 results...I searched the word "man". That can't be right. And when I go to someone's profile page and click their portfolio button, sometimes it goes to their port, sometimes it says 0 images found. That's not right, either. It happens on my portfolio too sometimes. Sometimes it does go to my portfolio, but when I click to page 2, it says no images found.

Something is definitely wrong. That doesn't seem like it would be an issue on my end, so I have to presume the search engine at DT is hosed.

Everything at DT seems OK, I checked and didn't come across any problems. Maybe these search problems were just a temporary glitch.

Not a temporary glitch, no. Just went to your portfolio on DT using Safari. I usually use Firefox. I clicked on your portfolio button under your picture and the page said no images found. I went to my profile page and clicked portfolio...it went to my portfolio. I clicked to another page, it worked. I clicked to a third page, it said no images found.

It's an intermittent, random problem, apparently on DTs end because I'm fairly certain it wouldn't be happening to me on 2 different browsers.

I have the same picture, cclapper. Your portfolio won't show (I can see my own, but not always), and the search for "man" yields no results. "man business" still gives a skillion though, and so does "woman".

I just went in and tried "man",  first click on search provided nothing, second time nothing, third time over 6000, forth and fifth nothing, seventh and eigth got results.  Very strange and random.

Has any one contacted Dreamstime about this? That "glitch" can be very costly to us as well as Dreamstime. I wouldn't keep hitting the search button if it didn't work the first two times....I'd go somewhere else.

Exactly. Random and intermittent. Unreliable. Yes, Donding, BIG problem for buyers. I'll go see if anyone has reported on DT forum and if admin has acknowledged.

I clicked on your port and it went to your main page but "no images found" under your port, same thing with mine. I sent customer service a note about it, hopefully they are already aware of the problem and working on it.

Others are reporting on DT forum, I also sent a message to support.

EDIT: Sorry to hijack the "factories slowing down uploads" thread. We should probably post this stuff under the DT Down thread.

CClapper,
I'm sorry, I haven't spoken with either of men ever. Achilles or Yuri.
But if it comes to unprofessionalism I think Yuri should talk to his people again. It might be that they know more.

Dreamstime seems to have a problem with the site right now.
I'm sure they'll fix it soon, but does this have anything to do with the agency
being 'unprofessional'?
Because I'll have to disagree.
Of such glitches I know a lot worse.

I know Yuri has been uploading over at the 3D Studio. I did a few uploads about a day ago...and then I was buried behind 7 pages of his in a matter of a few minutes.

Now it's official, Yuri is uploading to DT. And yes, they are similar. Yuri seems to be a winner of this conflict. Upload's rules were changed and series are accepted again.
Yuri 2:0 Achilles  ;D

Rules were changed for Yuri and Yuri's series' are accepted again, or everybody's series are accepted again?

Where did you here this?  I am still getting "similar" rejections.  I echo Cathy's question - Is this a change for Yuri only, or for everyone?

My deduction. Achilles said that rules were the same for everybody, included Yuri. Then I took a look to Yuri's recent uploads.
Conclusion: similar are accepted now.

Did he hire a new intern or something?  All those "girl isolated on white doing random things" images. :)
