Congratulations Yuri!  As a non-exclusive that is a particularly impressive achievement.  You are my hero! :)

Is Yuri the first (non-exclusive, that is) to hit that mark? He certainly has shown what you can do with hard work, good models and excellent images.

Lisa, with about 14K licenses to go, you're within striking distance of that milestone too!

BD is 200,000 downloads - Lisa has about 114,000 to go.

I didn't even know such rank existed. Congrats, Yuri!

I thought something happened at 100K, but obviously not BD - now I'm even more impressed Yuri :)

Chapeau! (as they say round here). No mean achievement.

I believe they were referring to another Lisa (lisafx).

Not me.  I am waiting on that little gold ink bottle or whatever it is that you get at 100,000.  Will be nice to finally have some icon beside my cannister.  :)

At my current DL rate there (roughly corresponding to my DL's in mid 2006) it's gonna be a REAL LONG wait to Black Diamond. 

And @ Leaf - I believe you are referring to LisE  Gagne.  I am Lisa with an A :)

I remember reading a post on this forum where someone called her "Lisa Gaynor". Strange how people make a mess of her name, but never Juri Arcurs'. (grin)

I am hitting black diamond soon as well.

If things go well I expect it in 2015 ;D
But that assumes that iStock will keep growing the way it is now.

Incredible accomplishment, but too bad the guy doesn't even get a royalty increase for it. All the Black Diamonds get is a canister graphics. Nothing more.

My thoughts exactly! I hoped for a raise but I am still at 20%.....what? did I hear right.20%...Yes. :(

With my current rate I will hit a million DL before Lise, thats my dream, but with the tweaking and constant changing of IS policy you can never know. I could be selling close to nothing in a few months from now. Microstock is a risky business. :(

Risky or not, you're still a legend and an inspiration to many Yuri :)
