I'm up to 35.  Mixed travel, landscapes and objects.  One request was for a video.  Makes one wonder if it is legit.

Don't be sad, it started again, he does night shifts too.
I closed the shop for today, no more authorization.

Got some requests as well. Better not respond to them.

Sounds liek someone may be trying to hack the system, and figure out some kind of vulnerability. If they are still doing it, I'd say they haven't found one 'yet'...

OR... it could be some new kind of webscraper/serach engine/etc - that when it visits those pages, "triggers" the request. (It doesn't actually plan on making a purchase, just wants to scrape the content).

I can remember at some point being p*ssed about a third party deal and turning something off but I don't ever remember turning off EL's.  It looks like my four newest are still turned on, but after a random search I can't find any type of EL enabled in the rest. 

RAW

My EL's are all off also and they were set to on.

Maybe they are trying to fix the function and that is what's causing the email requests.

Had about 30 so far today myself - no DLs. Will have to block e-mails from DT as SPAM if they can't get this under control

There are something wrong, most of my image with no EL over there....

I turned all my ELs off ages ago when they started offering ELs as part of some subscription deal and I received one for a few dollars royalty.

I guess I'll need to check and make sure ELs stay off whenever this problem gets fixed (i.e. I hope they don't just turn everyone's on to address the problem some are having where their ELs were previously on and are now magically off).

I typically turn on an EL request as long as it says its for credits. Most of the time there's a purchase, but  not always. As I have had more EL requests during the day today (and the total number of requests for all of us is now beyond anything that makes sense) I have turned back off the few I turned on first thing this morning.

I am at about 60 requests, enabled first few but not planning to enable anything more until I see first few sold.

About two hours ago the Dreamstime staff wrote on the Forum: 'Please allow us to investigate this problem. Thank you.'

Now DT staff have posted that it's a bug and "Sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you for your understanding."

I think email to contributors would be a good idea for those who haven't come to this forum or the DT ones, but I don't see anything yet...

I've sent an email to support when I opened this thread (more than 24 hours) and they didn't bother to answer. How can we expect them to notify everyone?
At least now we know where we stand with this issue.

It's a weird bug to continue over time on random images.  I wonder what process they were trying to run.

Indeed it is. Perhaps an 'encourage all the people who opted out of ELs to re-enable them' kind of process?

Their little experiment may be fixed, but they forgot to click my EL boxes.  Don't you have to do it one at a time on this site?

No go to your Contributors Area and click the Manage License icon (first one - second row)

I got about 40 and turned a few on. Then I thought this was time consuming and odd. So I looked on the MSG forum. Seems I'm not alone and this is a bad joke, a bug or scam. I'll delete those messages. I have no time to mess with it anyway.

Where can I see what these EL options really mean - - in the real world - please? Do they involve exclusivity of any kind?

You can read there about each extended license - two involve types of exclusivity and the rest do not

And I just received another one three four in the space of 4 5 6 minutes!

I posted in the DT forum about it - does anyone else have more from this afternoon (or since they acknowledged that it was a bug)?

I'm up to 8 now. I'll stop updating as it's boring :)

Another contributor in the DT forums said they were still getting emails today too, so it's more widespread than just my account.
