Thanks, leaf - I didn't know that. Too late :-).  I had been thinking about a seperate account anyway, a business and a personal. The snag is it has to be validated against a bank account and you can only validate once paypal account against one bank account.

Maybe I'll just buy something. Amazon has a 'Website Upgrades for Dummies' book. Apparently, they haven't sold any copies.

yeah, i have 2 accounts as well, a personal and a business.. they come in handy.

But if you have a savings account or something similar, then you can validate your paypal account that way.

On a brighter note I received my FT payment this afternoon from paypal but personally i would have preferred if sorting out the search engine had been top priority.

Good for those who portfolios that are being found by the new search engine.

I can't help getting that feeling of deja vu, does nobody in the microstock industry believe in beta testing?

My backlog is up to 200 already.

I saw an FTP link appeared yesterday but was gone this morning but i think it would be prudent to wait until everything is sorted before wasting time and bandwidth.

Well at least they did this during the summer slump

not a single sale in days!  Frustrating!!
Is there anything one can do?  Who's portfolios get "found" - those with many pics, high approval ratings (mine ain't bad), uploaded during a blue moon? 
I am thankful for suggestions.

Credits now cost $1.36
Not yet, until it changed in the past minutes. I'm looking forward to it!

They ar not doing this at all now.  I think what they did instead was bring in a new smaller size and all the other sizes got bumped up a credit.  However, all my sales have been for the smal web size unfortunately.

Is it just me or have they picked up the speed?  Gosh, it's almost as fast as the competitors this morning... and I had 4 sales yesterday.  Miracle.

A record day at FT 89 DLs but

only 4 of those earned me money the other 85 as far as i can tell were of the same free image. I thought I had deleted all my free images but obviously not.

That's correct.

My sales have increased too, which is very nice, but I have found that at least one of my older images has lost its keywords  >:(  I guess I'm gonna have to get busy and check my whole portfolio now ...

But how do you fix the keywords?????

If you read their forum, there are posts there showing that keywords are still there, but somehow not seen at first - there is a trick to make them show. 

Sales were great today, although unfortunately on the smaller size only.  But I've had 2 and 3 credit sales in the past days.  In IS a good portion of my sales are the XS size also.

Adelaide

Thanks Adelaide, what a good idea to check the forum at FT  ;D

I guess we are just gonna have to cool our heels and wait for it all to be sorted.

Cheers

glad to hear some are back making money here - not me, sad to say.  I've not sold an image since the upgrade and that's odd since I was averaging a few a day.

that's exactly how I was doing until yesterday when I sold a couple.  Today, however, I sold TWO extended licenses - hurrah! Best day ever, anywhere on microstock.
Immediately ordered $1000 worth of new photo equipment - now I am $980 in the hole  ;D

Contacted support 2 weeks ago about partly and completely missing keywords, but nothing happened, they are still gone.

Just deleted the images (images with no keyword will not be found and hence get no dl). If one day they manage to get their stuff going, maybe I upload again. So far, they are dead for me.

Working myself in the IT business, I just cannot believe how they handled this update.

FT have announced in their forums that the missing keywords etc should be imported this weekend.

Promises, promises........

The latest glitch...

10 sales away from reaching silver, and I got my raise.  Other folks who have reached bronze in the past few days haven't received their raise.

Where do you see your keywords are missing.  Ever since this subject came up here and at FT forum, I have checked some of my images at random and could not find a problem.  Even the sorting order appeared ok.

Anyway, someone at FT forum said there was a trick to make keywords reappear, apparently they were there but in some type of view would not appear, then a few click would make them back again.

Adelaide

my latest ft news - seems I've sold 1 photo since the upgrade but I didn't get the auto-email notice.  did get a notice of a photo accepted (well actually two emails but they referenced the same file).  This is a very old photo - not sure if it was rejected before??  It has no keywords and I cannot add any or change the price of an el from 1 credit.  Sent a message to support.

I was getting emails on the few sales I had. Then over the weekend, I got about 50 emails one night on a free image. Finally had to delete the image to stop the emails. Since then I have sold one, but didn't get the email.

They still have a lot of work to do.

I would like to clean up my mess of a portfolio on FT, but I can't seem to sort my photos in any kind of order any more.... How do you sort by status/sales/views etc.?

I'm trying to go through pages one at a time, but if I make a change on page 5 it tosses me back to page 1 so I lose my place.   Ugh.

Perhaps I should put FT on my August to-do list and forget about it for now.  I don't dare upload for a while.
