Hi guys.

Is anyone else experiencing problems with
I am owed several hundred euros but haven't been paid for several years.
The owners aren't responding to my e-mails. The site seems to be up and working just fine.
Am i the only one not getting paid?

yes, we had a problem with payment on Rodeo.

then we said we will take legal actions.

after that they paid us, but deleted our account there. AND LEFT PICTURES STILL AVAILABLE CUSTOMERS.

again, i told them we'll take legal actions.

then pictures were removed and our business relationship with them ended.

they had promising sales in 2006, but this ship started to sink once they decided they customers only need 100.000 images to choose from.

Rodeo paid regularly until half 2013.  Then it stopped.  When I asked for payment (without talking about legal action), I got paid partially in January 2014.  Right now they owe about 17 months (600 euros).  Clicking on "request payment" on my contributor page does not work.  I'll be asking for payment again in September, because I know in Finland Summertime means everybody's on holidays.
I do have the impression that Juha has the intentions to pay all debts though, but I also think he's a real optimist thinking he can do all the work with 1 or 2 colleagues and a very limited number of images.
When did you sent him an e-mail?  He usually does answer them ...

I have sent him emails every 4-5 months for the last 2 years...
