I just uploaded over 100 images and they were all accepted. I think they lifted the upload ban a few months ago. Perhaps that reinstated it?

They have been hanging tough although I only get maybe 1 sale every 6 or so weeks.  I'm currently supporting them because they are a fair trade agency, but I have been toying with getting rid of three agencies, GL being one of them.

Yeah, looks like uploads are back.  I get sales there, I try to use them as much as posssible.

Uploading is possible again since a few weeks. I still support them, despite low to non-existent sales. I don't think they'll ever flourish again, but I like their 52% and the simple uploading process.

As a contributor who gets a download here and there, I really would like to support this site. As a image buyer, it is very tough to search their site for any pictures due to the lack of variety in their search results. I shouldn't see the same contributors photoshoot with the same model being shown over and over again in the first pages... Maybe it is lack of sales from my searches but i spent 20 minutes on it last week and had to move to another site to check.
I think they need to spend some money fixing this problem if they plan to step up their game.

Dead for me.  Down to maybe 1 or 2 payouts per year.

Uploading is only possible via the site - no ftp - so not as easy as it was.
And with sales as rare as hen's teeth, even this often seems too much hassle....
Shame.
