They were being transferred almost immediately upon acceptance.  That seems to have changed.  Haven't had anything transferred since early May? Late April?

Anyone else notice this?

It's been mentioned on the PP forum.

Who knows whether it's IT imcompetence or some sort of malice aforethought re the new collections scheme?

AHA... I don't attend the internal forums.  Thanks for the info.

Nothing new of mine has been transferred to PP sites. I was thinking it could have to do with he collection changes. Very upsetting considering I added a bunch of files recently that are all buried in best match and not even on the PP sites. I haven't had a single sale since the middle of last month...Seems my exclusive content (video) hasn't been ported to Getty yet either :(. Kind of hard to stay positive and keep building more if you know it isn't being seen. iStock is making my decision to branch out a much easier one I have to say

Perhaps they'll all turn up in a free Google collection instead :)

It's not impossible that could be their evil plan.
Or ... who knows, but I'm certainly not shooting and uploading anything significant until they get it all fixed.
OTOH, again I've been noting the appalling keywording that's been getting through recently and have an awful feeling that they'll never get it all fixed, given I already have wikis going back years that haven't been seen yet.
e.g. here are the first three files in my best match for iceberg filtered by photograpy (image) to separate the photos from the 3D renders:

The first one is the long-standing mistranslation of berg that I told them about years ago, but nothing was changed.
The next two are really badly spammed files.

I'm thinking that some PP images sell for considerably more than 28 cents, Luis.  Maybe not at TS but there is more than one PP outlet, isn't there?

PP accounts for about 40% of my iStock sales.

Not so sure of the effect on SS but, at this point, don't really give a big ...  :P ;D ;D

not much to say to that, actually there is a lot but I believe it ain't worth, sad entry of yours

And some probably count not transferring to ThinkStock and PP for 28c sales, as a benefit and feature.  :)

oldladybird contacted me on iStock sitemail and got some id numbers for files so that IT could look into it. Haven't heard back, but it was only a day or two ago.

I certainly count not being forced to do it (if it worked) as a tangible benefit.
