Bigstock has blocked uploading new images until Oct, Ist.  This should prove to every one not to go exclusive with any company especially with Istock having big problems.

Hmmmm...that's weird.  I uploaded 5 last night and as of this moment, I still have upload capabilities.  I haven't received any alerts saying I can't upload.

I uploaded fine last night as well, and just checked, there are no alerts and nothing about it in the forum.

It's IS that's temporarily stopped uploads, not BigStock.

BigStock stopped uploading for the weekend of 22-23.Sept, but resumed it on the morning of the 23rd.

Actually I checked after the OP. If you clicked on upload new images, BS had a msg similar msg to the one last weekend that said uploaded was on hold until Oct. 1. You also couldnt conned via ftp. That message is now gone.

Not sure what happened.

Just got the message.  Uploading will be shut down Friday through Sunday just like it was last week.

Starting this Friday around 5 PM, in order to improve approval times, we need to disable uploading until Monday morning, to give approvers a chance to lower the awaiting image queue.

We did this last week and this should be the last time for a while that we do it.

Sorry for any inconvenience, thanks for your understanding. All in all, this will improve approval times with a smaller queue and we are working hard to make sure we keep the approval times at faster, more optimal levels.

Thanks all.
