Same here, but as it is written 'rimglow', you can use http://submit.shutterstock.com/portfolio/suggestions.mhtml, working for me

Who is accustomed to microstock tool, shutterstock seems a little confusing, but what's most important, works :)
Do you have experience with this tool? http://arcurs.com/keywording/

I'll get it fixed tomorrow morning.  Sorry, I didn't see this thread earlier.  Next time, feel free to send an email so I know right away - you can see the email at the bottom of the page.

Update: Hmm.. not sure how this will turn out.  It looks like the microstockGroup IP is being blocked by Shutterstock - which is totally within their right, especially if the tool was making a lot of requests to their site.  I've sent them an email however and hopefully we can figure something out.

I may be biased but I go crazy trying to make use of the other keywording tools :)  ... too small of click boxes, too many page loads, not the right features...

Why would Shutterstock blocked the Tool which is useful for them and contributor's... Or Tool does not work as expected?

They may not like the extra load it causes for their site.
I haven't heard back from them, so I still don't know if a blocked IP is the problem or not.

Shutterstock is checking into this and hopefully we'll figure out what the problem is.  It looks promising.

Maybe is only some technical problem...

The whole story...
The MSG IP got automatically blacklisted (blocked) because of the number of requests it was making to the Shutterstock site through the keyword tool.  The keyword tool was simply screen scraping the Shutterstock site (poor coding practice ... espeically when there is an API available) and the IP was automatically blocked. 

I'm working to recode the tool to work properly with the API.. once finished (hopefully later today) the keyword tool will work better than before and be much more stable and properly follow good coding practice.

Thanks to Shutterstock for their help

Are there any other agencies that provide APIs?

I think most of them have an API (at least the larger sites)

Never tried to search for APIs but now I found this article: http://microstockinsider.com/api_list

Ok, I've got the keyword tool working again
http://microstockgroup.com/tools/keyword.php

let me know if you find any bugs - it is successfully (.. i think) using the Shutterstock API so it should be much more robust than before (it won't break) and quicker ... and a lot better adherence to good coding practice.

Thanks leaf ... I am using a Tool, now working, but, when I press the "Start Again" button, opens the Microstockgroup site, not an option for entering the keyword again.
