Istock - They are a joke.
In what way/s in particular?

Uploading and preferring exclusives over others.

But Rux, you fail to recognize, that their upload procedure is a brilliant piece of work.
We contributers, want to think that the agencies appreaciate our pictures.
The agencies on  the other hand, have a message to tell us.
And that is, that they do not care about us, and they want us to do all the work, and they show us that every time we upload a file.
Like they say: "Lets see how an annoying process you can deal with".

So Rux, take it for what it is: a user interface, with a purpose.
To humiliate us, to keep those contributers who let themselves become humiliated.

What would the point be of having exclusives if they didn't have privileges?
If it's any consolation, for months there has been an indy iceberg lettuce above all of my exclusive icebergs in a search for iceberg (ice). (On my search, anyway).
If you think iStock's upload is bad, wait until you try Alamy's.

Couldn't they have the privilege of higher commissions but compete on keyword quality?

I would suggest for people that dropped 123RF to give them another chance. The uploading system is the fastest of them all and the sales are ok now.  They seem to be on the up. They are my second earner.

Can someone tell me what is going to happen in Jan 2013 on 123RF?

When you log in and go to earnings, you have to enter a captcha. Read the information below the captcha about the new rating system to be introduced.

Holy crap, so I have to get to 5000 dls to get back to the commission I get now. Right, I need to rethink submitting to 123RF then.

123 is basically screwing every contributor by thinking (and knowing) they will reap huge financial rewards by integrating an RC system.  Do they care? Nope. REMEMBER......this all happens come Jan 1, 2013.

No, they do not require 5000 dls, they need 5000 credits. You get a certain number of credits associated with every type of DL. I have not worked it out for myself. Sounds very tiresome to do that. So I will just wait till 1 Jan. 2013, see where I ended up, and take it from there.

In the mean time they and SS are both my top earners, so I will be an idiot to stop uploading and making money from them now.

Interesting find, thank you Luis. Just one problem, I worked it out by hand and no matter how I try to past the columns into this guys sheet, it comes out wrong every time.

123RF live support could not answer me on the calculation of a sub which happens to be an EPS as well (sub=1 EPS=10). Awaiting their email feedback.

OK. The problem with this guys sheet:

One work from your Total Row, so not month and year. So put in 0 for month and 0 for year and then start with the totals starting at the subs column. If it/you made a mistake, refresh the page, else every time you click calculate it ads the new total to the previous calculation.

Formula error: This guy only give 5 credits for an EPS and it is 10 credits (XXLMH column). Double his quantity he has in there, then you are right.

Panther Media  - no sales
Bigstock - 1 sale
Dreamstime - similar policy drove me nuts

i'm close to eliminating fotolia - their support ALWAYS replies they're looking into problems & bugs in their system, then closes the support request without bothering to test if the problem is actually solved.  they probably claim a 100% success rate since no problem ever is open more  than a day

they continue to reset defaults to send rejected files to the free section, despite numerous claims that they have fixed the problem -- their conystant conclusion is to delete all cookies on my computer which would mess up hundreds of LEGITIMATE cookies and defaults on amazon and other reputable vendors

what happens to your earnings when you close your account? if you're under the payout do you get it, or do they pocket it?

Differ from site to site (mostly have something to do with honesty). Best practice: If you are close to payout, hang in there till you can make it and then bail.  ;)

Thanks, that's cool. I could never be bothered to do the calculations.
