I've just had a look through my list of affiliates, and none of them have turned red, I can't believe that all 1800 of them are buyers and none of them photographers? (it's possible but i think highly unlikely given the nature of the sites the links are on)

have fotolia removed the photographers from my affiliate listing so don't notice the problem? or was I somehow never affected by the bug?

and unless I missed this before they are no longer paying 15% on sales it's now calculated as (sales price photographer commission) x 15%

WOW!  I can't believe that we STILL have not heard anything about this from Fotolia.

I guess this will have to do for a response from Fotolia.  The thread in their forums now shows, "Topic closed".

Anyone heard anything else?

Still not official site news, It really is just RUDE with their lack of respect!

this seems crazy - It will soon be a month with no news.  I am begging to think they are not planning on announcing it and just letting it slide by.  I am guessing there is a lot of photographers who still don't know what the 'new contract' is.  I really think that if they change our contract without asking us, they should at the very least inform us of the change!

Anyhow, I changed the topic of this thread so that it reflects what it is about, and not just a simple bug.  I thought about starting a new topic, but thought it may as well be all in one thread.

well apparently the referral program still applies to buyers, so if that photographer buys some credits then I guess you would get a % of the sale??!!

still no news?!  ???

So strange.  My referral earnings are better than ever, and a friend who I referred on Oct. 8th registered just fine in my affiliates list.  His status is pending, but he also doesn't have any images online yet.

What a slap in the face this is!

I was bringing them daily referrals.  Because of this, I pulled all my links to Fotolia.

There does not seem to be a bug for me; because now I am getting the extra boost for my Dreamstime links.
