Hello. Im a newbie and very little fish in the microstocks ocean, but im very interested in this market and its opportunities, and Im afraid for the future of this ecosystem.
For the change, if all of us apply a bit of common sense, maybe well create a little space in wich to swim free and protected.
I think there are many contributor profiles and buyers attitudes. If we applicate some simple rules, something like the next, the water can be more sweet for all.

The levels:

enthusiastic contributor:
Only interested in emotional aspects. No rules.

amateur contributor:
Easy rules:
- Complain.
- Upload first to the friendly sites.
- Promote featurepics and stockxpert.

proactive contributor:
- Complain.
- Upload first to the friendly sites.
- Promote featurepics and stockxpert.
- Subscription out at stockxpert and snapvillage
- Upload only downsized or medium/small size image or simple vectors to subscription obligatory sites (Shutterstock, Dreamstime, I23rf, Crestock, Lucky Oliver,...)

professional contributor:
- Complain.
- Upload first to the friendly sites.
- Promote featurepics and stockxpert.
- Subscription out at stockxpert and snapvillage
- Upload only downsized or medium/small size image or simple vectors to subscription obligatory sites (Shutterstock, Dreamstime, I23rf, Crestock, Lucky Oliver,...)
- Dont accept pays to contributors less than 30%.
- Give the fair agencies some exclusive content.
- Try to make istockphoto an image-exclusivity agency (not an artist-exclusivity one).

ultra contributor:
- Upload only to the friendly sites.
- Promote featurepics and stockxpert.
- No upload to subscription obligatory sites (Shutterstock, Dreamstime, I23rf, Crestock, Lucky Oliver,...)
- Dont accept pays to contributors less than 40%.


Youll thing that all of this can be ours simply being exclusive of istockphoto, but contributor exclusivity is like to live in a fishbowl (with a shark as owner), and I wants to be free.


Maybe, like the Are the things going well in microstock? post, everybody who wants to join, should copy the names from the most recent post and put his name and his picture number under his desired level in a new post.

So here is the list:

enthusiastic contributors:

amateur contributors:

proactive contributors:
rosendo (313)

professional contributors:

ultra contributors:
