Hey guys - don't know what is the link of the add or if this is still going on, but I've uploaded 500+ images on Stockiste.com and they sent me a hard drive by mail with a super duper letter thanking me.
They rocks !

If someone could find the link of the "promo"... you could all upload there and get the drive too. Probably limited offer, but many of you have way more than 500 mages so why not !?

Found it: https://www.stockiste.com/featured-product/lacie-porsche-design-mobile-drive/1

Hmmm, nothing here about that site for 18 months since this:
http://www.microstockgroup.com/new-sites-general/stockiste-com

I went to stockiste for a look. Seems rather strange. You get presented with a random page of images with a big K at the top (that would be K for Stockiste) the slogan at the top "Creative stock + Exclusivity on the GO!" (what exclusivity?) than some categories at the bottom. Then I had to click to see all the categories. I couldn't find any search facility on the home page or when I chose a category.
Then I clicked on an image at random. It's not available as RF, so presumably the prices relate to RM, though that's not obvious or explained on the image page. But above the prices, it says Social Media, priced by size from 67x100px to 3333x5000px. Is there a huge need for 3333x5000px pics on social media?
Clicking on the word Social Media, so see if any other usages were listed, there was a dropdown with different social media platforms listed, with no other possibilities offered for sale on that image. Weird.
Also, annoyingly, every time from going from one page to another, I get a 'loading content' page, sometimes telling me what I'm looking for isn't available, sometimes with code - even when just using the back button.

Tried six other images at random, and they also only offered Social Media.

Seems like a very strange site.
Wonder what the 1Tb drive offer is all about? I can't imagine many buyers would stick around a site with no keyword search facility for very long. And the sales options make no sense. This was on each of the six random files I clicked on with no other options:

I presume that there are files available for other uses, but without an obvious way to filter these, I can't see many buyers being interested in this site.

In addition, after I had chosen one category and clicked on a few images there (no way of subfiltering that I could easily see), I then clicked Home at the top of the page, and got to the category home page, not to the home page of the site. There was no way to get back to the home page of the site, other than by starting over in another browser. Once in the other browser, I clicked a couple of images again and tried to find better navigation that might lead me more easily to particular files (in case there was some FF problem), but no, all I can see is categories, then you're stuck within the categories unable to easily discover how to filter them down.

And what is that 'K' top centre for? You try to click on it and it disappears upwards.

Hey, they own me a Lacie Drive for the critique.

you probably woke up without having a coffee

https://www.stockiste.com/discover

and there is a search option in the top left corner, the magnifying glass

and the collections home page is the home page

that link to the featured product (lacie drive) is not the home page

I dont see page code either, nor loading messages,

It's 15:43 here!
I didn't follow the link in this thread, I just went to their website.
Once I was in a collection, I couldn't get back to the home page at all. Even when I retyped just www.stockiste.com (in FF which I'd already been using) it took me back to the homepage of the category I'd been browsing, not to the actual home page.
That tiny little pale grey magnifying glass in the top left corner? No wonder I missed it! Why did they try to hide the single most important functionality?
Anyway, I just tried searching some of my usual test searches (fairly obscure, but the sort of things I produce)(but that's why they're making an effort to attract contributors), and all say:
"No result found...
We found no result for what you asked.
Otherwise, we still search arround for other product with the tags you entered"

                     ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^  (Maybe they should get a native English speaker to help - and if there is "no result", how can they find "other product"?)

Still getting the loading page (and, usually, 'messages') between each page.

ShadySue is right, the search function doesn't behave as expected. I often get a 'No result found...' page, and annoying loading bars. If I do get results, there is very little content.

You should contact them. They are aware of few problems and really open with comments.
_I've contacted them for a metadata keywording problem and they fixed it.

And once you search for something, sports for example, and go to the home page, it loads sports, not the home page. https://www.stockiste.com and yes it always says, content not found, then starts the spinning circle, every time you go to any page. Very weak collection. It looks more like a personal site.

That's why they gives hard drive if you upload...
I mean... htey need stock to make money and they certainly know it :P
I got my drive and just wanted to share it with you. - if some have an account already - just upload 500+ images and wait the drive to come by mail. :D

Where can i see all uploaded images?
Uargh this "loading" clock image suxx.  :o
What is a production card?
"Our contributors returns range from 40% to 60%."
40% from? How much can i earn - min and max?
Iam 100% confused- 60% more as the commission  ;D

No result found...

We found no result for what you asked.

Otherwise, we still search arround for other product with the tags you entered

Just to say, I got my first sale in Stockiste  :)
https://www.stockiste.com/display/coffee-beans-in-vintage-coffee-grinder/740

After how many months/years? Portfolio size?

Me too.  After about a month with 500 files.  Plus, the 100% return program was activated, which meant I got to keep the entire sale!   I love Stockiste!  I wish other stock agencies would follow suit.

I'm one of the first contributors there with just 46 files. As it's a startup agency it's not correct to compare during the time and it's not to compare with the microstock.
I wish them good luck in this difficult times to start a new agency!

how does this work you send them a sample of your work to check them and become a contributor? and you have to reach a 100 bucks payout?and most imp they want exclusivity? which is a big no for me
