I would really like to help the cause although i am a pessimist.
Consider this constructive critisism.
You launched a campaign online without a frontpage.
No images. No logo. No, that is not a logo, sorry. Don't ask for image donations.
Contact some contributors with well known and used imagery.
Clients must find somethign familiar to identify with.
Even if it is "common" isolated or "fake" smiles. This is stock after all.
Ask for hosted posts from known or large contributors.
What was the person that deleted 150000 images? Interview him.
Catch my eye, give me a reading. Tease me.
Make a card other than red no 10 cent sign.
Yes we now strike but we are creatives, a beautiful image a catchy slogan whatever.
Have you ever thought that the shareholder gets 7cents more per item than you this month?
There you go.
Future forums bells and whistles mean nothing without visitors.
It is a site for microstockers but as everything must first be client oriented.
Best of luck CommuniCat. Hope to join someday.

Oh and please, don't treat us as friends. Friends ask for favours.
Define clearly what will our relationship be and how we take part in desicions.

You have some very good ideas. I hope you join someday too.

Never mind. Good luck mate.

2 ports: ~ 15000 + 10000. If you curios about quantity.

OK I am a top earner and I want to be in. Can someone tell how to actually turn off my images and videos at SS?

Never mind. That was easy. Done! Over 26000 images.

The "stock coalition" would be better served by fleshing out their website, listing goals, members, etc.  Because it comes across as "some guy made bought a domain and is pretending to speak for everyone".  That it has "joined the call"  comes off as somewhat meaningless.

Have you joined the Facebook group?

Are you OK with going public and letting me tweet about you joining #BoycottShutterstock? You can PM me here (and no is a fine answer; some people don't want to be public about it) or find me in the Facebook group

Yes, that is right. Our server is at Xneelo in Germany, but the build is being done in South Africa.

What you are looking at is a holding page. It even reads "Website" in bold followed by "Our community website is currently under construction."

As I mentioned to someone else, we can make a much prettier holding page - but that would take resources away from the actual task of a rapid-build website for the community.

The subtle changes were made to the live press release, not the holding page.

The Stock Coalition has now grown to 3418 group members on Facebook and has new members joining all the time.

Thanks for your participation and contribution to the effort so far.

In the meantime, join the conversation here:

You guys are doing a great job. Looking forward to the new site!

Thanks. Is that you with that little Canon 4k cam? If so, I've been watching. Thinking of adding a video section to the site and linking your channel and others that give good stock advice in the blog section.

Let's just get it launched first though.

We are very close to a site beta launch and I'm working to an internal deadline for tomorrow. We got some feedback on the site so far and are working on some changes. Holding thumbs that the community will approve of our efforts.
