Well, no raise, RC system is here to stay. RR said so. Tough luck. The decline in downloads and revenue shown by all the crowns is due to the growing number of contributors. And that was the end of it.

Did anyone really expect anything else? I rather take it that they would like us all to go and recruit buyers as well as whatever they have in mind to do that (cutting rates a bit, I suspect).

As a couple of people pointed out they can (and will) do what the he1l they like, it's nothing to do with us.

Looks like the new initiative is just make up to string us along. They just dont understand the fundamentals of istock.

After all that happened this year, just incredible.

Whether she understands or not, she almost certainly doesn't have the authority to do anything other than the bog standard textbook stuff. As Gostwyck said long ago.

Well, you've got to give it to the girl, she said pretty much the same as KT, but she did say it in a much better way.

*No change to RCs, no revision of levels.*

Haha oh boy! Just shows the Getty really just don't understand how they screwed up, and why their traffic is taking a dive. I joined as a buyer and stayed on as a contributor. They just don't understand the crowd sourcing model. Social/Crowd sourcing has bought down dictatorships - don't think companies are immune.

Sylvanworks has already stated that is the reason he left istock. And I'm sure in the months to come that will be the reason more exclusives will be going independent.

I'll be talking to one of the biggest istock vector sellers in the next week or so, will be an interesting chat.

Meanwhile... preparing my house for a new paradigm as I leave the istock ship....

exactly what I expected from her..

after all, they are not called "greedy" and "incompetent" for no reason.. they earned it over and over again.. they continue to improve their reputation..

she is soon going to tell you that you should market your istock portfolio so they can take %85 revenue for doing nothing :)

Yes, I'll give her that.  But the whole thing seemed like a fishing exercise for free information on what needed fixing. 

As ever, they seem to have got what they wanted.

Where did he state that?  I don't remember reading his reasons...

Wolfman, facebook friend of Sylvanworks, longtime lurker at MSG with few posts, tell me, does "wolf-man" translate into "lobo-man"? No, it couldn't, could it?

Perhaps all the big exclusives should start their own site?  It looks like its not going to get any better for them.  As a non-exclusive, istock are becoming insignificant but it must be excruciating having your only source of RF income being controlled by people that don't care if your earnings are plummeting.

If I were Yuri Arcurs, I would be wondering what would happen if I cut a deal with the top 40 exclusives.....

Ah yes, you're right.  I'd forgotten where we started from... but it unfolded like a fishing exercise.  Unfortunately RCs were the 'tiddlers' that were thrown back...
