I think I might just move everything to Adobe Stock. Has anyone gone exclusive FT/AS? I haven't contributed work since ... well since whenever I realized that SS royalties were only 12.5 cents and I've got a hell of alot better things to do than sorting and uploading all of these for pennies. I like the quarters rolling in though ... and like the way that they're doing it (as a contributor AND a buyer). Even the subscription price seems more legitimate than the pricing model at other places.

I'm listening to this Seth Godin thing he said something like "The problem with the race to the bottom, is you might actually win"

I get like ... 2 payouts a year, like why . do I care. The self hosted site paid for itself and let me have at least the freedom of what to do ... I'm about sick of this crap.

When did SS change to 12.5 cents? I still get 38 cents minimum. https://submit.shutterstock.com/payouts

Maybe I'm bitching about something irrelevant to SS specifically then. My point is I'm kinda sick of the circus and want it to be fun again. Sorry for the rant.
