I really don't get why anyone quits GL. It's exactly the kind of site we should be hoping somehow turns things around and grows. That won't happen if people are leaving.
I think it's Pond5 not GL! Quit GL because of their daily limit submission!

The way things are going this question could be turned around to - Are you considering staying with any agency?  :-\

Sound negative but hey! contributors seem to have gotten kicked around by so many agencies that I've lost count by this time.  Meanwhile I've stopped uploading to those that lowered sales way too far, or seemed to put my work at risk - as I had no control over their so-called partners, affiliates etc (with no opt outs given).  I have either taken down images or stopped uploads (usually both) to Depositphotos, Bigstock, Alamy, Veer and opted out of partner site from every other agency where I could, such as 123RF. 

Also, regrettably, my volume of micro stock uploads have overall decreased in last year!  It starts to feel so pointless with the way content is managed, and the perpetual decline in RPI and sales. 

Other avenues are starting to look much more attractive to make a buck or two :)

...

Sparking interest in images happens one image at a time, then you hit it good with some SE and then suddenly you can quit ur job, because you're making 50 bucks a day every day. Then you figure out how you did it and do it again.


??? seriously?  examples??

On the photography side have increased focus to commissioned work.  One or two additional bookings seem to cover what I make on stock!!

I don't think there is examples.  Just a lot of opinions.  Not to be taken serious.

I stopped uploading to Featurepics when they announced a 2 year hold on photos.  Problem is unless I upload I will be grey before I hit payout.  I'm sitting at $39 and have only made $15.54 this entire calendar, most of that is from referrals - it's absolutely ridiculous.  I hate to walk away from ANY money but I can't wait to close this account.
