I find it odd that Adobe announced a sale here immediately before adjusting people's accounts for underpayment. So people mistakenly thought they were getting extra sales and got all excited, rather than questioning why they had apparently been under paid for quite a while.

I look forward to being pilloried.

I hope Adobe/Fotolia appreciate Mat's work for making contributor-agency relations so positive. I believe it already pays off.
The last time any agency was really concerned about honest positive communication and working towards contributor's best interest was a few years ago, and it was Shutterstock. I guess it come to an end with Scott Braut leaving SS.

Now lets compare the two worlds - Adobe/Fotolia vs Istock. The first is a knight in a shining armor and the latter is a miserable Gollum creature :).
I didn't like Fotolia at all until Adobe took over.  Fotolia were like istocks little brother, copying their commission cuts and setting top level rankings almost all of us will never reach.  I'm still not that impressed because my earnings fell off a cliff under Fotolia and there's been no real recovery under Adobe.  We are still paid too little and have those crazy top ranking levels most people will never reach.  I hope things will change but until now, not much has happened to make me enthusiastic.

SS set a top tier level that's possible for almost anyone to reach if they put in the work, if Adobe want to go up in my estimation, they need to change their ranking system and give us an incentive to sell more.

pilloried ?????

It's amusing to read how praise and blame alternates in this thread.

The higher ranking tiers are not that impossible to reach. It depends on from what perspective you look at it. I am Sapphire and I am happy being paid 40% especially when it relates to big credit sales. Fotolia/Adobe know how to respect and value the experienced hard working contributors.

Or maybe not so odd, I suspect more likely that marketing set a promotion and accounting corrected a commission error and both departments were blissfully going along their way without any thought of implications beyond the immediate task or the need to communicate with anyone outside their department. I see it all the time in my day job.
