That's a wide spread!  My best was in 700s or so.

Thats interesting, when you say 2979. Because last number is rounded up, or down.

I hope Adobestock will cultivate new stock photo buyers without taking share from other agency.

Their ranking system is a joke. It is INTENDED to control YOUR commissions. Think of the payouts they would have to make to people who keep uploading content if their ranking system were honest.  I could never get a high ranking there even when uploading 3,000 images.  This system was adopted by Istock and 123 as ways to control commissions.  By pushing new contributors they would pay less because they are in the base tier and lucky if they ever hit silver.  With all the other scum bag moves FOTOLIA has done I am SOOOOOO HAPPY I am no longer with them.  It is also hilarious that Mat is in here inferring that you sell your EL's at a lower price to get more sales. That is every agencie's go to logic when they want you to accept less so they can enjoy more.

Mantis, once again you are proving that you have no clue what you are talking about (despite being oh so experienced)...
This topic is about the weekly ranl which is a simple ranking by the number of sales during the last week. It has nothing to do with number of uploads or contributor level.

Yes it does.  The more images you have, theoretically, the more sales. When more sales happen, your rank goes up. When your rank goes up, your rating goes up. When your rating goes up, your commissions go up. Get it now? Sounds like you haven't a clue about how to assess a business tacit from end to end.

And I forgot to mention that when they control the rank it really doesn't matter a discussion revolves around weekly, monthly, yearly ranks. Look at FT's shady history of misleading contributors. This ranking system is one of them. It's one of control. FT's control.

Yeah, Fotolia is so bad, that I get more money with less sales, compared to SS.

Mantis!  now youre a serious player. Listen to this. This new Adobe/FT is a completely different avenue. I been criticizing micro for years and years, since good old Bruce sold Istock and thats many. many years back,  not here but openly and in bloggs, God only knows.
Adobe/FT right now is brilliant! can not fault it in any way. Mat is only doing his job and one of the very few that actually looks in here more then anybody from another agency.

Whatever beef you had with the old FT, forget it and let bygones be bygones. With your material you ain't going to regret it.

Start uploading instead, pointless letting yourself get irritated over cuts, royalties and percentages, this, that. I mean if we are sitting getting uptight with that, well might as well leave any form of stock alone.

just a friendly thought!

Nothing personal, but please stop with the negativity and conspiracy theories. Others are starting to believe it without any evidence. Maybe that's your plan after all, to get others to stop uploading so you can have less competition. Other people are nicer with their comments and I'm a bit more honest.

This kind of self-defeatist attitude is what's preventing people from being more successful. I see it all the time and it's often the #1 reason why they don't break into the next level. When you expect to lose the battle, you already lost.

The weekly position/overall position is something entirely different than White/Bronze/Silver/Gold/Emerald tier system.

As long as my weekly rank is higher than my all time rank I'm happy as it seems like progress. But its sales that really matter  ::)

I agree. 

If everybody is having a problem with an agency, such as Dissolve and Revostock, it's usually their problem.  If you are the only one having a problem, it's probably you who is causing the problem.  Matt just works for Fotolia and does his job communicating with contributors on this board.  He is a fellow contributor too.  We are all in this together benefiting from each other.

when i am feeling positive and upbeat about being exclusive at the evil IS i tend to log in to MSG to get my weekly dose of everything bad and negative and how it's everyone's fault that i can't make it as a photographer. it's a reality check for me to feel negative. i won't mention any names, but there are more than one "people" on this forum that live a negative view of everything on this MSG. i think they wake up and feel the need to  share the negativity. thank goodness i don't live with them, that would be a real drag to deal with such negativity on a daily basis. oh my ranking sucks, so does fotolia, so does Istock, so does Getty Images, and so do you.
