I dont want to be clairvoyant but if I take look at this crappy thread after two days I will see eg. that upload limit of 160/week will be normal as is. > end quote >


Again, apologies that I can't check in here more often, but I do promise I'll follow up as much as I can.

I find suljo's post a bit confusing but I'll do the best I can here. Again, apologies if I'm missing the main message: Feel free to email me if I'm having translation issues and missing the real problems! I'll do my best to clarify :)

Suljo, the weekly upload limit for vectors on iStock currently starts at 40 uploads per week. I know our uploads have been posted here already but you can view them on the Xnet blog on iStock if you're interested in how they increase by canister.

Not really sure where '160/week' comes from. So to reply to your post: No, two days (or in this case two weeks) in, the numbers aren't 4x what we originally announced.

If they change, I promise I will do my best to post them here. But for now the weekly limits for a new contributor are indeed 40 a week, NOT 160 as Suljo posted. I hope this helps, and hopefully reduces confusion for newbies here. I'd hate for new contributors to think they were given 160 upload slots per week based on this post!

160/week is wannabe joke from my side 2 or 3 weeks ago.
But how do you explain that today upload limit is 60???

So is it mean that you will slightly increase No of upload every week or two to reach my worst prediction (160 vectors) or in worst case upload limit for vectors will reach 4 or 5 figure like snowball?!

maybe the clipartdotcom account has had enough sales to increase their canister (or whatever it is that vector artists get) and the number of upload slots?  I don't do vectors, so I don't know what the thresholds are.

cliparta.konj has 199 files in it gallery?!

How it is possible if they/it have only as "bortonia" says: "File types each have different upload limits. The weekly limit for a vector contributor with a base canister is currently 40 per week."

So only ONE month is passed and how the clipartdotcom has 199 images in they port???
Where is the math from you side???
Only that you uploading sh t from clipart for at least 5 months and dont say anything to us about that.

Lets see at close up what IS approved from clipart and it is believe or not bestseller
4dls in less than month.

Getty has sent thousands of photos over from their various collections which have bypass the "inspection standards" and will continue to do so.

This in nothing new.

Yes, I wouldn't get all constipated worrying about how many Getty images can be imported in each week.  The answer is "as many as possible".

Agreed, not a lot of point complaining. They make 100% on their wholly owned content, they are going to squeeze in as much as they can get away with.

I nearly posted re. the drop in standards after the initial promise that they would use the same criteria to review the work, but thought what's the point.

As the thread has been revived, here's another couple of gems (to add to the cutlery), which I don't think anyone else would have sneaked past review

Hilariously, upload limits for vectors are now 999/168 hours

Even the most paranoid sounding predictions on this thread have been utterly outstripped.

Bless you bortonia for still having any faith in your employer or thinking the "old crowd" of employees with scruples (such as yourself) still have any influence. I am sorry your employer has left you out to dry.

I believe his point was that upload limits would continue to rise until 160/week was the norm. I though t he was being paranoid, but I guess he was actually giving too much credit.

So the upload limits for vectors have been raised to let the crap from clipart.com be freely dumped onto IS's site. What's even funnier than this happening is the reasoning given in Jenn's blog post (see below). In practical terms, no one individually is going to be able to able to create that many illustrations per week, so the huge limit is really only useful for anyone bringing in a brand new portfolio...

"bortonia - Mar 13/13, 13:12
vector illustration inspections have historically had a much faster turnaround than the other file types on iStock. Because of this, we've been tweaking our upload limits over the past year to see how well we can handle higher submission volumes.

Our last adjustment was made in January and our average inspection time is still under 2 days, which is the same as it was 3 years ago. In other words, our inspectors are rockstars.

We've looked at how many people are actually using their existing upload slots and the number is surprisingly low. This got us thinking, what's the point in even having a limit to vector uploads anyways?

We are topping out our upload limits at 999 submissions per week (the maximum we can assign with our current upload system). This change already shows for our Exclusive contributors, with non-Exclusives to follow over the coming days.

Our inspectors are ready so bring on the submissions!"

Brilliant!  ;D

I hadn't read that post. I take back all the sympathy

Again, I get that they are going to dump as much of that stuff on the site as possible, they want to make 100% on it. It's just ridiculous to try and be underhand about it. It makes them look so much worse than if they honestly just said what they are going to do.

999 in one week? That sounds like a challenge. Seriously though, they must really be hurting for vector submissions. I remember when they could barely keep up with 15 a week limits.

Totally unrelated. See my post here:  http://www.istockphoto.com/forum_messages.php?threadid=352171&messageid=6859925

Upload limits have nothing to do with clipartdotcom. Nothing is changing, no files are being 'dumped'. As I've stated several times already: The clipart files will be added in small batches over a long period of time, then Dollar Binned.

yes, sure it's totally unrelated... it's a pure coincidence that the upload limit has been thrown out the window just when they started adding content 'following the rules'... it's so funny when a company says they will follow the rules when they have the power to change them at will...

Upload limits? We no longer need them!  ;)

No offence but you were pretty dismissive of the idea that the limit could be raised to 160 (let alone 999) or that sub standard content would be allowed through too.

In my experience you have always been very honest and upfront, so forgive me if I draw the conclusion that you are not in loop as far as the decisions on IStock go.

I will have to make up my own mind about what IStock/Getty's plans are based on their recent actions.

They are waiting week or two with they "honest" upload limit "999"

^^ It's not only vectors, it's a bug on the bug list.
How they continually manage to break essential features of the site then take hours to fix it beats me. I got that error a couple of times last night, then uploads were OK, now I can't upload at all.
