I just got the Istock newsletter.  I noticed one component that a programmer must have written.

"Holiday Payout Schedule

A reminder to please check the Holiday payout schedule, and make your payment requests accordingly. The calendar makes it a bit confusing this year, so please make sure you get your payment tickets in early to avoid missing the cutoff deadlines.

        Mon Dec 17th for all payment types, with payout Friday Dec 21.
        Dec 24 cutoff for all payment types, with payout for PayPal on Dec 31, Moneybookers. Jan 2, Payoneer Jan 3.
        PayPal cutoff Jan 31 for payout Jan 7
        Moneybookers cutoff Jan 2 for payout Jan 9
        Payoneer cutoff Jan 3 for Payout Jan 10"

 ;D Love it. They can't even report on their mistakes without mistakes.

Oh and by the by, in the iS forum post of this announcement, to prove again to the world what a total asshat L*bo is, here's his super sensitive response to a long-time exclusive member deciding to give up the crown:

Posted By Jancouver:
I'm out, I have been around way too long and got almost 10K downloads and now I will be traeted as someone who started yesterday and just turned exclusive. iStock will take additional 17% of my revenue jsut because I didnt make the 11K sales. Like it was my fault. Good luck to you all, I cant take it anymore ... it was a good ride butunfotutnatelly now its over. Too bad I canceled the the other accounts when I bacame exclusive ... oh well, we all make mistakes.

Well, thanks for letting us know. If you have any questions regarding your account please feel free to contact Contributor Relations.

It's amazing to me that an online company, where anyone can review and search insider remarks and details so easily, would allow someone like this to be one of their major mouthpieces, especially when everything comes out the other end. Maybe it's time for an all-out grassroots campaign to topple this POS site once and for all. And that's coming from an exclusive.

Jancouver has a valid point, too.  Making our RC levels isn't a one way street.

Interestingly they've already declared 2013 RC levels. That can only mean that they're absolutely certain that sales will fall even further. They're not even bothering to pretend that sales might increase anymore.

Oh well, let's extend a big welcome to Club Independent for Jan Couver (amongst others).

Just to clarify another point that I have been around and around with Lobo on.

According to the 2012 Payout Schedule PDF

The December 10th Paypal payout request will be paid on Dec 17th, not the 21st as the calendar indicates.
