On 12.03.24 Adobe has blocked my account with a portfolio of over 50,000 images and over $2000 on it because of "terms violation".
I dont work with AI Generators, I have no idea why the account was deactivated and what I can do to reactivate it.
 After using the contract form, I still haven't received a response (over a month). On Discord they just tell me to keep waiting.

I find it very unpleasant to keep someone in the dark for so long and to be at the mercy of it all

This is ridiculous.  Adobe needs to do better.

This seems extremely shocking.   :o
Really, I doubt Adobe would do this sort of thing lightly.
Your portfolio had 200k images in 2021, 50k in 2024?

The best way is to contact Adobe via the MatHayward PM in the forum.

That is horrible.

Please contact Mat.

Adobe should have a much more professional system, especially for reliable and proven producers.

To have us at the mercy of an invisible department you cannot talk to is crazy.

It is terrifying to be cut of abruptly from your income.

If you had 200.000 images in your Adobe port in November 2021 according to your old post and now had 50.000 images in January, you must have some kind of idea why your account was banned? Surely the 150.000 images didn't disappear for no reason?

the mentioned 200000 portfolio from 2021 belongs to my husband. since the registration here has been inactive for days, I used his login.

So we are talking about a different portfolio (50.000) here.
As I said, we have already been asked if it is normal to wait so long and we wanted only to know if others have had similar experiences

It takes a lot of time and hardwork to get a balanced income from microstock. Its a highly competitive market.

If contributor do any mistake > Destroy them and take away all the earning.
If employee makes any mistake > Give them a scolding and ask them to resume to work.

You know the details and facts, could you explain how they could do better and why this is ridiculous?

Do you both have your own AS account, use the same computer, internet and camera? That might be why. Good luck.

I Ignore posts from blvdone (and some other ridiculous posts), it saves me time  ;)

I don't say it's the case here, but even a thief can come and complain on this forum, he will be supported by some ridiculous people.

You can keep waiting or forget about it, because they will do it again if you open a new account.
Why do we need to go to Discord or use Mat help, i don't get it!
And who said Adobe is ridiculous here! they're thieves or stupid in solving issues, or both, why some keep defending them! i don't get that too, until they block them maybe.

When people keep criticizing, attacking and calling Adobe thieves, but no one has the details, or why the block occurred, not even the OP, how's that for fair and balanced? Are we allowed to defend reason and responsible comments?

Yes, we'd all want a better communication and faster response, no argument with that.

We're also trusting and assuming the block was unjust, because we trust the OP actually didn't do something wrong, by accident?

ps You're not supposed to open a new account!

Exactly,there's no point in commenting on a block,because we simply don't have enough elements to judge,Adobe has,and I'm sure they will do the best.

In any case,I hope it's nothing serious and that everything turns out well! :)

On the Discord server we have a rule that blocked accounts are not to be discussed. One of the reasons for this is because it instills too much fear in contributors who have nothing to fear. Another reason is that no-one can help you other than contacting Support using the link they have provided.

But to have a place where blocked accounts can be discussed is useful. Producers need freedom to talk about their problems.

If Adobe bans it from their company support groups, that is their decision, but personally I do not believe that is helpful.

And talking about the blocks also helps to create awareness for the problem and especially what kind of mistakes will trigger a block.

For instance there is the problem of credit card thieves abusing a portfolio and as a producer you have zero influence on that. But can be punished by losing access to your income and having all your image algos reset.

Then there are many people who are completely new to stock, who are being edged on by youtubers and simply make mistakes because they do not know that what they are doing is wrong.

And finally you have actual criminals, who upload stolen content, who buy each others files to improve their rank etc..

All these cases need a different level of attention.

However, although all agencies suffer from the same criminal activity I only see Adobe blocking accounts of reliable, decades old producers abruptly.

So, of course people are terrified!

There should be some kind of system in place, where reliable producers have their issues cleared up much faster.

That would help to alleviate the real fears in the community.

thanks for the feedback and also to uncle Pete, soon I will use my own account here :)

But apparently support cannot or doesn't help either. This contributor still has no idea why the account was blocked, and this is the first report here of not getting an answer.

As a long time contributor, what I find deeply distressing is the complete lack of responsiveness. Not talking about all the people who are "disappeared" smacks of scary dictatorships, not a place I'd like to be.

But I'm happy that milo22 has been let out of detention.
