Sorry if this subject was already raised dozen of times (thought I still can't find answer) but it seems something has changed.

Lately my submission limit in Dreamstime has dropped to 12 photos a week. I'm in a 30%-50% acceptance ratio section. That means I have 1/3 of the MAXIMUM AMOUNT of photos to submit each week. Now my question is what is this magical maximum amount? I can't find it anywhere in the Dreamstime faq. And it's quite frustrating not to know because it's quite important number.

I'm allowed to upload 35 a week at the moment which I believe is the highest amount allowed at this time

you can find that on the main page of Dreamstime, then look above on the right News and Announcements

Contributors: The upload limit has been decreased to 5 submissions/day (35/week). Such measure was taken in order to limit the massive number of similar and identical uploads. We kindly ask you to be more selective with your uploads. - posted by Tangie

Thanks for the answer! I did noticed that statement (and probably somewhere on this forum too), but this brings me even more questions. If the limit is daily, why I can use all the weekly limit during the one day. And what's the 'normal' (old) base on which the limit is counted? (Not to mention WHY they have changed it so drastically...)

The wording of 5/day is a bit misleading.  I think they must just mean 5/day in the sense of 35/week - I have had no trouble uploading more than 5 a day as long as I'm under the 35/week.

As for why, they are trying to force contributors to prune their submissions, with the stated goal of reducing similar images.  There is a lot of discussion around this, on the DT boards and here, and it isn't as simple as it first sounds.  DT doesn't have a strict policy, and you can see that there are some types of similars that they seem to encourage (i.e. facial expressions and poses) and other that they want you to combine into sets (i.e. illustrations of balls).

When they recently reduced the limit it was 5 per day but they quietly changed it to 35 per week.
