Heh
If you see I am very upset, angry, .... (+50 very bad feelings and bad things about IS...)
Yes but why?
Maybe if I am buyer that is all OK but if you on the other side why that "superior, megaturbo super system" dont work for contributors in same way???
All complains about iStock are about that. Fck authors in all possible way for all kind of stupid triviality!?!
Why and for what? iStock in this way in quota protecting they newbee loosers as exclusive members??? Or programes have impotence or inability to solve that mutually simple thing???

Translation:
You can see that I'm very upset, angry, etc.
[Rhetorically asks himself why?]
Maybe if I was a buyer on the other side of the change in the best match I'd be ok with the change. But I'm not and why does this "super duper system" not improve the situation for me in the same way it does for buyers?
All my complaints about iStock are about the best match. It f*ucks contributors in every imaginable way for all kinds of trivial sh*t.
For what reason? iStock is protecting exclusive members from newbee losers with the quota system? Or are the programmers impotent ;D/unable to solve the problem in a mutually beneficial way?

[Editorial Note: iStock doesn't use the quota system anymore.]

well the changes have cost me a best month ever, which is awesome....because it would have been a sweet month if they would have just left it alone.

it all goes back to this...istock makes changes, the designers have no idea why when they search they come up with diddly-squat, so they have to learn to use the search to their benefit, and 2 weeks later we are back to normal...unless....

they bung up so bad that they need to fix it a la this time (grr)

these are my experiences and impressions

Since I started using irfanview for keywords, they don't appear when I upload to istock.  That works well because now I only put in 5 or six that exactly describe what is in the photo.  Haven't had a keyword rejection yet.  If the image is accepted, I can add more keywords that I think are appropriate later.

Same here. ???

If I was relying completely on microstock income or was exclusive at IS I would be EXTREMELY upset about this devastating change in the search engine results for newer members and others. Fortunately I still have my day job and will hang onto that for awhile. :)

The volatile nature of the microstock site changes in general will definitely keep me from jumping into this thing full time for quite some time.

I was actually 14 for 15 on my last IS submission - I almost fell out of my chair in shock!!  Now let's see what they do with my current batch; just to keep the law of averages average, they'll probably reject the whole lot.. ::)

 ;D   i changed my attitude to IS .
with the other sites, i celebrate if i get 8 out of ten accepted, because i expect them to take them, and maybe rejection 10-20%
with IS, i celebrate if i get 1 of 10 accepted. ie. 90% rejection.
i never could be happier nowadays...  ;D
