Frustrated with Shutterstock reviewers

Just look at this https://www.shutterstock.com/video/search/countdown?sort=newest

At the same time I still got many rejections for dumb reasons of cool video backgrounds accepted anywhere else than on SS

Bad Robot:
What do you expect they pay reviewers peanuts and recruit anyone with minimal oversight  :(

Pay peanuts what do you get ?  ;D

For fun a few months ago I sent SS a request that I was interested in becoming a photo reviewer.  They responded back to me in a couple of weeks . I didn't not save their email but it went something like this. It was a very nice and polite letter. Thank you for your interest in SS. At this time you just don't have the experience we are looking for as we have other applicants that fit our requirements better. Thank you from SS.  So I guess my dream job will be on hold. Now for my background. I have been doing stock photos since Mosses came down form the mountain. I have a small site on SS and most all the other top sites. I get small sales from most of the sites daily. I have sold/published over a million photos in my time on earth as a photographer ..again over a long time in the business. So maybe someday I can get my dream job as a reviewer. I can only hope and pray....W.Scott McGill

Unbelievable. They clearly favor some contributors over others, even though all these should have been rejected for being too similar.

But Shutterstock is going down the drain anyway, if they continue this way.

You are probably over qualified, that's the line I used to get. Seems counter intuitive that someone who is better qualified, can't get a job. But what they are saying is, you are too smart and they couldn't mold you into the person they wanted.  :) Or you are too experienced and you wouldn't follow their limited and restrictive standards.

Of course the usual reminder, they make the rules, even when they are legally going their own way.
