Is anyone else having an issue getting into iStock.  The site seems like it is up, but it has been REALLY SLOW all day.  I have a high speed connection and it is taking over a few minutes to get to certain pages.

I haven't been able to get on all day (I also have a high speed connection).  Seems to get "stuck" loading.

Same here... I got a rejection that I want to check if its in the "can resubmit" category (for noise). I am sitting here ready to upload it and I can't even get in, the status bar goes about 3/4 across and gets stuck. Earlier I was able to delete a couple of images from the queue (SS bounced them for noise so I cleaned them up and resubmitted them) but it took all day!

So its not just you...

Haven't been able to connect to the site for 12 hours, is it just me?

I still can't do much on iStock this morning.  I got to my home page this morning, but then can't get anywhere since then.

I guess that the other sites will pick up today, since buyers will probably move elsewhere.  That is good for those of us with portfolios on other sites, since pricing (and royalties) are higher.

Looking forward to a good day...

FYI: I am on the East Coast of the US.

On another note, I wonder if they pissed off someone bad enough that this is a denial of service (DOS) attack...

Its working again! Just discovered it was a really good day on istock yesterday. I think this month my istock earnigs will take over dt earnings for the first time although dt earnings have been quite good the last two months. I am happy with istock. The per picture earning is higher than at shutterstock, which by far is my best earning site. So I can live with just 20 %..

haven't been able to get in for last couple of days I think - definately not today.  Not even the buyers side which is a concern.

In UK with highspeed Broadband.

I'm at another location now and I can access iStock just fine here.  So I'm not sure if they fixed the issue, or if it is a location-related problem.

I'm not having any trouble checking my stats.  If you're having trouble, try clearing your browser history and cache.  Also, even though it's a pain, try erasing your cookies.

That might help.

This is definitely not a browser problem, but a server problem.
