You got to have in mind that five or ten bucks a day in certain places is a fortune! here its like a Pint in the Pub. These people are uploading like crazy and have no reason to deactivate or remove!

RPD in SS (level 5, mostly still images):

June 2019 - 0.81
May 2020 - 0.73
June 2020 - 0.87

It looks like June will be my best month in the last two years or so.

I am so ashamed ...  ;) But, I don't upload new stuff to SS.

A lot of $0.1/image, $0.67/video and AS is lower in total earning than SS recently.
It may be time to retire my one person microstock image factory.

Check out Facebook BB group, they are happy to see $0,7 sales for video with explanation: better something than nothing

But what do you think will happen with your earnings in January when you drop to level 1 like everybody else?

Just hungry slaves! like people that upload to Istock an d Freepik to earn $0,001. I think a mouse click worth more that.

There we go with the slave analogy again. LOL too funny!
Ok, looks you are very happy with 10 cents, enjoy it! LOL too funny! 8)

Probably, I will need one month to return back to level 5, and, maybe, 10-11 months to reach level 6. But who knows? I am not very optimistic about microstock in general. I am still making my living here. One more year?

Nope, you are wrong. I deleted all my images off of SS about three weeks ago.

Contributors are not slaves, not anywhere close. Using the word slave in connection with the boycott is only undermining credibility. Stop it.

Shelma1 Happy to see we are in full agreement on this! I will be deactivating my videos as well now!

+13

So, Snow, what is wrong with those people? Still testing on videos, not images, videos. And people agree on "will disable"

Or we do not touch some people and everyone else is a f*cking retard??

It was a fun ride folks, outdated threads learned me lotta things that none from the active whiners in countless threads ever mention. Advanced search, settings buried deep in pages, how to read and look figures you name it. Swearing is not what i like to read. Neither people telling me what is right and what is wrong everyone in a new time wasting thread. The most important things in life are taught in kindergarten. Bit we have to graduate it eventually. And MSG is microstock kindergarten.

Happines and health for all of you.

What does it take for them to wake up anyway? 0,01$? They rather continue complaining about it then take action? Do they have any self-respect? any value for their work? Any working brain cell left in there?
Their earnings are dropping so much soon they can't even use it as an excuse to stick around anymore. What will they do then, wait and hope for things to turn around at SS? chr.st!

It's because of this submissive mentality Shutterstock or any other company does whatever they want!

I don't blame Shutterstock anymore I blame them! and I do hope their sales will go down to 0,01$. Go for it Shutterstock, take everything they've got! They are too f.cking dumb anyway!

Even Jon himself said if you don't like it then take your content and go yet they still don't get the message.
I have never seen such a sad bunch of people in my whole life, beyond pathetic!
And they are supposed to be educated and skilled professionals/hobbyists. If they were new at this and don't have a clue yet then maybe it would be forgivable but these are experienced contributors for gods sake!

So to those who are still active at SS, stop whining and suck it up! you get what you deserve! now drop your pants and bend over!

I don't like to criticize people personally for their business (in)decisions, but I also don't understand why anyone would stick with SS after those sub dollar sales.

I guess it's what they call in poker "staying married to your hand", i.e. when you're holding AA but the board tells you you're beat anyway. You don't want to give up your precious AA, so you stay in the game against better judgement...Back to the case of Shutterstock: contributors don't like what they see, but after years of building their portfolio and enjoying good revenue, they find it hard to quit suddenly. So they stick it out with SS, disgruntled and disappointed, clinging to the false hope it'll get better. Hopefully, after some time most of them will see they're better off without SS.
Its perfectly rational not to close your port with Shutterstock as the money spent creating it is sunk.       So while you may consider others immoral in some way they are probably simply making a business decision.  "From now on I'm thinking only of me."

Major Danby replied indulgently with a superior smile: "But, Yossarian, suppose everyone felt that way."

"Then," said Yossarian, "I'd certainly be a damned fool to feel any other way, wouldn't I?

I had quoted the above post by Pauws but this requires a new post since it's not specifically directed at anyone so Tyler, please delete previous post.

Here goes:
Right, that's why we joined Microstock, we're all loaded but still needed to sell our work for $0,38 a pop.
You think we don't need the money? Those who take action are just some rich folks?
Some people here, it's written on your foreheads.
At first I thought you guys worked for SS but now I think maybe some of you are just that stupid not to realize what is going on here. You try to make up all sorts of excuses for people to stay on SS probably because you also have your portfolio up and you have to make up an excuse for that right. Irony is many of you can afford to quit SS because it's not even your main income.

I posted this in another thread but will do it again. If we all go back to SS along with those who never left and eventually drive the price down even more then it's game over for everyone, yes including those who can still manage now with a few hundred bucks! So the rich, the poor, the disabled, the smart, the retired, the rational thinking, h.ll even the SS fanclub will be in trouble!
Meanwhile other agencies will follow because if we accept those conditions at SS then why should other agencies pay us more? Why should P5 give us better conditions? Why should Adobe continue to pay us a better cut? Get the picture?

No more jump ship while you can, GAME OVER EVERYWHERE AND FOR EVERYONE!!!

But keep supporting SS, we will all go back and do the same, where can I join the SS fanclub btw?

or maybe we are not so stupid as we think we can beat the simple economic laws of supply and demand. We don't need excuses or permission from you to make our own decisions.
