Has anybody uploaded any images to the infinite collection and if so have you had any success?  I am toying with the idea of doing a shoot especially for it but don't know if it will be a waste of time or not.
I am doing better than ever at fotolia but my overall rank is slowly going down as my sales improve  so I was wondering if it's because some contributors are making a lot of money with infinite collection images and moving up the ranks.

Actually, you have to open a separate account to submit to infinite, so it won't help you move up the ranks any with your primary account.

I did one shoot for infinite when they first started.  All images were rejected, so I ended up adding them to my micro port.  Not sure why the images were rejected - they were all accepted into the regular collection. 

I haven't heard anyone doing particularly well with the infinite collection so I haven't bothered trying again.

Thanks Lisa,
 I'll maybe give it a try with one shoot to see how it goes.  If they get refused then I'll do what you did and upload them everywhere else.
My theory about why I am slowly going down the ranks is nothing to do with that then.:)   I'm losing about one place a month even though I am having BMEs there every month.  Other people must just be doing even better.

I am in exactly the same situation.  My rank has been slowly dropping.  I have been guessing it is most likely because of the influx of macro pros and stock "factories" that can upload great stock in massive quantities.

On dreamstime, for example, where we can track our portfolio exposure, I have been steadily losing ground as a % of the whole collection, despite uploading constantly and having several BME's in a row. 

At least for the moment overall sales are still keeping pace with the additional supply.

Yes, I hadn't thought about that but I am seeing the same at DT despite as you say  having record sales. Although not being full time I don't upload nearly as much as you.
It always seems to me that when one site goes down as is the case with SS at the moment for me another one or two have record months and bridge the gap.

I've been dropping through the ranks quite consistently and although it's not really something to worry about, it's kinda reassuring that it's happening to others too.

I agree, although it really isn't important as sales are better than ever it is reassuring to know that it isn't  just me.

This has been happening almost since microstock began and accelerating ever since.

I remember Hidesy at IS, about 3 years ago, declaring her target to be maintaining 1% of the collection. Needless to say she couldn't keep up __ she's now down to 0.24%.
