Anybody still selling there?  Can a non-exclusive contributor achieve "Signature" video clip status rather than cheap "Essential" clip?

Only if you were previously exclusive.

Try posting this question on the IS forum, you will probably get a more accurate answer.

OK, but over there it's mostly photographers and not videographers maybe.

There's a video forum and a few very active contributors there.

Generally speaking the moderator's there Vidproquo and Opowain are very quick to reply and amazingly helpful.

There has not been any change to the commission structure at iStock since the abominable change that lowered HD commissions to ridiculously low levels for indies.  (I had only one sale before pulling all my videos, and it was an HD for well under $9 -- $6.54, to be exact.)

I know everyone has to do what they feel is best for them. But IMO (which I will freely express, since I can't now get 10 negative votes  ;D), any indie contributor who sells videos on iStock is a selfish idiot. (I do apologize to anyone who does so and is offended by my harsh words. It's nothing personal, just as your selling HD videos for such a low commission that hurts others isn't, either.)

If indie contributors on Istock are idiots,what are contributors on Videohive! Super idiots?  Selling HD videos for 7$ and getting 3.5$ in the best case? By the way there're 4k files on P5 for 20-30$. Are they idio...   
 Am not saying just just asking!

Yes, I like that ("super idiots").  ;D

Perhaps they are mostly contributors living in places with very low costs of living, so they figure they can undercut others and still make a living wage. In which case, maybe it's unfair of me to call them idiots. (Though they might make more by only supporting higher paying sites, and by not having such low prices on P5.)
