Requiring a Model release for a 300 years old statue?
Rejected for noise when you submitted a 3D render?
Rejected for similars when the concept is totally dfferent?
Compression Artifacts when saved at 100% quality?

Tell me: Who`s got the most incompetent Inspectors?

Where's PD, their reviewers are complete muppets. I've seen a lot of bad rejections so far, but percentage wise PD takes by far the biggest cut. IS can be nitpicking, SS was refusing everything for a few months last year, but has been reasonable prior to that and after that, I've had very few issues with FT, while DT sometimes exaggerates when it comes to similars, but if you take it into account you can have a 100% AR for months. I don't submit to any agency besides the top 4 anymore, but I stop caring about rejections quickly during the short period of time I did upload

I added Photodune to the poll ;-)

1. SS
2. DT
3. PD

I've got two words for these editors, GOD COMPLEX ;)
These guys take all the pleasure out of this work!
We need MSCI (microstock crime investigation)
They better get their act together because I doubt they rather lose contributors who bring in the money and get payed, then editors who just get payed.

I currently have no issues with all the other agencies (FT, IS, 123RF,etc) and no rejections whatsoever on macro's.

I voted FT only because they reject a TON of my images.  But i know it's a known fact that they don't really want nature pictures too badly, so I can't actually blame them for sticking to that claim and rejecting the images.

Incompetents is perhaps the wrong word, non caring and using automatic reiewing i more like it. 123rf and photodune, are both trollops. Thats why I dont supply them.

No agency is not even close to DT. Their "inspectors" should find another job like secretary оr security guard.

The poll is going to be a bit unfair, as the amount of contributors to smaller sites (like Panther) is so much less.

Can not decide which is worse, getting rejections for silly reasons or not being afforded the courtesy of receiving a reason at all. One batch all accepted, next all rejected, etc..

this is far from accurate, we cannot blame inspectors, they are following agency policy and demand at a specific moment.. inspectors and inspection are totally different subjects..

...because of that I did ask for the "Inspection process" too....to the contributor it does not make any difference, neither is it meant as a personal offense to the Inspectors as people.

I dont think DT inspectors are doing a nasty job perhaps its the agency itself with the approve everything from newbies and making things harder to less newbies or even top contributors, doesnt make much sense but hey thats their call

Yes....IMHO Dreamstime had the luck to be one of the first in the game to compete with IS. But thats it. I doubt they will be very successful in the future with their policies.

In my case, 123RF. Totally unpredictable. At least with DT
I have some sense of what they like/don't like. 123RF is the
only agency that I know of that rejects a shot of bacon simmering
in a fry pan yet places it under "editorial" catagory. Get an
inspector on a bad day and you'll get the entire batch rejected
for "poor lighting/poor composition". I've never had that experience
with DT. And what about waiting time? Does anybody else take
six weeks to inspect your shots? DP, 48 hours max. DT, within
72 hours.

True. It's the only agency I can't even be bothered to upload to. I have an acceptance rate of 86-98% at every agency I use but with my last batch to DT I only had 17% accepted. Therefore no more fresh content for DT. Clearly I'd be wasting my time and theirs.

why are we limited to just ONE agency, when there are such silly reviewing practices at so many agencies?

LCV

ignorance of what editorial means
lighting problems on weather & storm pix
etc

I noticed Panther there after I already voted. No option to change my vote. But in all fairness, when you need to wait two months and get no clue what's going on, they shunt your photos into some public review area... Colored lights that are amusing but useless. I guess the inspections there don't really matter anyway?  ;D

No agency is not even close to DT. Their "inspectors" should find another job like secretary оr security guard.

That's an insult to secretaries and security guards thinking that DT inspectors should get a promotion for their review work.

This thread is useless!  most people here who are casting votes,  do so out of sour grapes, only because they suffer plenty of rejects, etc,  no good.
