I got a contributor's survey a few months ago after stopping uploads. Filled it in explaining why I wasn't contributing any more.

Have also had a couple of emails asking me to start upoloading again, looked pretty automated. Of course hell no, not until they change their comission structure.

BME across the other agencies.

Makes me wonder if anyone at SS reads them? I mean, honestly has anyone written back and said, "Wow we really like the 66% cut in commissions?" Or maybe some dim bulb at SS decided that they needed a survey to find out what was obvious?

I don't know about others, but that pops up every day for me, and I ignore it. Maybe it has something to do with time on the site, in the catalog manager or something. Or could be a cookie with a nag screen association.

Let me say, if they don't know what most artists think at this point, they aren't paying attention or are in some kind of serious denial.  :) Their own forum has almost 300 pages of angry posts over the announcement, and that's with some deletions. I'm not wasting my time.

I already know that I will be shocked in mid-January. It will be cruel. The comparison with January 2019 will be interesting (horrible).

I never got a contributor survey, I just get customer surveys all the time.

But at this point, if they really do contributor surveys, the only reason for these might be to pretend they care and give contributors some kind of option to vent and voice their frustration. I have high doubts they will actually look at the results and even higher doubts that, if they look at them, they will really act upon thes results in any kind of way. Because we all know what contributors want and what they are dissatisfied with. All want more money, all want their levels not to be reset or at least the past 12 months being taken into account and at least some want less rejections. But the interests of contributors and of Shutterstock don't align, so this won't lead anywhere....
