Is possible to open a special poll for that and ask how many pictures people will deactivate on Feb2 then no need to do the total all the time?

I am not sure if that would work as anybody could open an account and put in some wild numbers.

Wow! The number of images involved has nearly doubled since this all started.

Happening over a weekend too. I'm wondering why the PP stats stopped coming through on Friday and I think we may have just found our answer. Looks like that spare server capacity was diverted to Getty's more urgent requirement __ Google Drive.

It almost looks like they're in a panic to get the images up there before they're stopped or have to provide an explaination. This is coming from the very top of Getty. They're never usually this 'efficient'.

Maybe. There are a lot of 6MP+ images in the latest ingestion, it seems. I've even noticed some 9MP among them. I don't know if they can be downloaded at the max poss size or not

Funny how some things can easily get done over the weekend.
Shows where their priorities lie.

I just sent a request to close my stockxpert account... and remove it's 327 images from thinkstock, photos.com, etc.,.  Will resume deactivating my istock portfolio on Feb 2nd... if I can wait that long.

I think you have to login and write support.  I deleted some files manually last year (as a test).... they're still online at thinkstock.

What is the current tally for removed images?

I had to send the file numbers on all deleted files from stockexpert to istockphoto team to get them removed. Deleting them from Stockexpert doesn't remove them from Thinkstock/Photos.com.

I did a search on Thinkstock "artist name" clicked Hemera under collections, wish there was an easier way though.

Michael Utech posted some interesting stats in iStock's Discussion forum - http://www.istockphoto.com/forum_messages.php?threadid=350403&page=2#post6825629

No exclusive exodus yet (2 diamonds and 5 gold members returned their crown so far in January, only one gold member became exclusive), however it takes 30 days until the status change becomes visible so we might see a few more. Downloads still as low as the whole final quarter of last year, absolutely no upswing visible.


A little more interesting - About 140 members deleted 7300 files the last week (week before was 4600, already much more than usual). In addition upload numbers are about 30% lower than between summer and Christmas. These 7300 are more than what gets uploaded on a regular day. Let's see what happens when the Feb 2nd plans of a group of contributors become reality here...

Hmm. Photos.com has been down for a while. Perhaps getting things ready for 02/02?

It's happening. This is just the calm before the storm.

Thanks for posting.
