I have noticed a few people here just love busting his balls. 🙄
Kinda makes you wonder why after a while, doesn't it?



I dont wonder. Some people are just bullies. Especially when they can hide behind fake names. If you dont like him, fair enough. Do you (and everyone else that does it) have to call him out every freakin time he says something? He has never been anything but kind to me. He has a lot of experience, for many years. Theres an ignore button, if he bugs you that much. Just an idea.

Some people just cant let go of a grudge... to their own detriment

Oh bummer, he left.

Red flags because you defend a forum bully and liar when we try to tell the truth to warn others. Why don't you take your own advices and ignore us?

Hardly a clairvoyant. If i was truly a clairvoyant I would recongnize the question as a rhetorical one. If you think about it though, she must be the only one, nobody else has brought it up. ;)

Rinderart is one of the few that actually understands the decline of the industry and what a joke it has become.

I wrote a OptED piece 14 Years ago that "Sooner Or later we will be getting 5 Or 10 Cents a DL."

After 4 years i am quitting Istock too. Constantly declining sales, insulting 15% and 0.00003$ sells. I should have quit much earlier.

The royalty percentage of 15% was there when you joined. They keep it that way because most contributors with large ports won't leave as the income makes it worthwhile to stay, and contributors with small ports who leave are outnumbered by new contributors joining.

How many files you had in your istock portfolio ?
And yes, 0.008$ are juste ridiculous sale. For the first time in 14 years, I wasn't able to meet the 100$ payment. So declining ... ! And SS and Adobe are rising for me. They got live stat, good contributor portal, good sales ... I'm glad I have quit istock now and I should have quit before ! ! ! Like 5 years ago.

Stopped uploading there 2 years ago when they started selling my 4K videos shot on Inspire2 or Alexa/Red for $0,40. I still have my old material there, haven't deleted anything and regularly receive $4-10 for 4-10 sold high quality 4K videos. As long as they keep up with that I won't upload anything there.

I'm pretty sure they'll keep up with that ... ! They did nothing to improve contributor experience since years ... ! It's just gotten worst with the refund and all. This is how they doing business. I'm glad I have quit. But it takes months to have my account totally close and get the money that they owe me. I'll be patient.
