Done, thank you. Sorry if that subject was here before - why don't we - artists - invest and launch our stock agency? Is it to complicated? Not worth it if we pay professionals to run it? We have got the power for a huge ad campaing to start, there is so many of us.

yep, 1063 signatures and 510k images that will be deleted, perhaps enough files to satisfy buyers!

Yes I thinks thats the only solution!
DPC, DP, Getty for free this is MicrostockCancer.

Why we should not talk about Symbiostock here?
To get rid of the MicrostockCancer we should not only fight cancer. But the cause and these are the destructive agencies.

And Symbiostock already has an infrastructure that really only needs to be made ​​mass suitability.
Symbisotock may be the cure.
The fight against MicrostockCancer and the creation of an alternative sales opportunityis for me is always one thing.

This forum is hostile when someone from an agency consider us fools. 

People who want to buy many pictures purchase a large subscription and invests a lot of money.
  those who want or few photos, buy credits and pay a demand for a higher price ..
The proposed treatment with DPC fotolia destroy demand and condemn us all to hell commissions of 0.30.
When that happened only will upload photos of my feet on the beach.

I'm already out of DPC and ready for erase many pictures 05/01/2014.

Hello,
From yesterday, there is an option in your Fotolia backoffice : Don't sell my files on DPC -- OR --  Sell my files on DPC
It is on your Profile/Contributor Parameters

Clear cache, delete fotolia cookie, log out and login. Also try another browser. It is still there under contributor parameters.

OTOH, if any have tried to explain why it has to be 'all in' or 'all out' to 'sensitive use' (including children), I missed it.

I think that you need to speak for yourself, as a contributor, or speak for Fotolia - and you need to get one of Leaf's badges that identifies agency representatives if you're going to do that.


quick off topic question - is there a key for the badges so we know what they mean? I see them under peoples names on posts.

Hmmm, they are really pushing that Dollar Photo Club.
I just looked up searchterm stock photo.
First hit was an ad by iStock, on which I have a photo of the searchterm, but because of a bug, it doesn't show.

Second hit was an ad for DPC, which didn't have the search term.
So any continued flannel that DPC is only for selected users is, as noted above, lies.

I just did another with searchterm, just to confirm what I said above. It's the third 'hit' for searchterm, but it's still there, promoted highly to all and sundry.

Those are not organic search hits, those are paid ads, from Google Adwords. They just paid to be in that position. You can pay for position 1 2 and 3, position 4 and up start on the right side. Still, pushing their dollar club, but those results are not organic search placements.

Absolutely the right way to get big buyers! Same as a Facebook site :-)

I'm boycottfotolia.org developer.
It's translated text of my open letter to microstockers which was published on Rissian-speaking forums.
What do you mean about "we"?

That's her point Ron.

Indeed.
The clue was: "Second hit was an ad for DPC".

I mean who is (you) the person that develops the boycott-site.
I am still trying to understand your motivation and who the friends are you mentioned.

His motivation is the same as each other petition signer's motivation: we wish to save the industry and make sure our future as microstock contributors is bright and promising.

In an earlier post he claimed that he has no microstock affiliation whatsoever, so I find it a bit strange to organize such a boycott, when he is totally unrelated to the industry.

He is not affiliated with any agency, but he is microstock contributor himself.
