Isn't it pathetic that the moderators delete a thread pointing out that once again they have ignored their own stupid rule that they will announce the start of the pp run (while rigidly enforcing the part of the rule that says nobody is even allowed to ask about it).
And having deleted the thread, they put up an announcment that it "should be starting", four days after the first part of it started and 24 hours after the beginning of the main run.
It's like Stalin airbrushing his old comrades out of all the official photos one by one as the memory of their friendship became embarrassing. Do the iStock mods really imagine that they can change history and make themselves look good by pressing the delete button?
I guess iStock doesn't bother telling them what it is doing, so they can't make their announcements until someone in the PP program lets them know what is going on.

I didn't realize it was such a secret.  No wonder I can't find a straight answer.   :P

That is pathetic but easy to ignore and harmless, whereas this week I experienced how truly pathetic gov. tax depts. can be. I was fined for underestimating my tax and then when it turned out they had made a mistake in my favour, I'm queried why I paid too much tax (in an accusing tone of voice)   .... grrhumph, sorry, carry on :)

I find the way they 'moderate' their forum to be quite illuminating in some regards. As much as they try they can't actually stifle the voice of the contributor as the discussion will just end up over here instead __ and that's a good thing. It also says quite a bit about the confidence they have in their own business and the decisions being made. Istock's forum was instrumental in the 'crowdsourcing' business model that served them so well in the past but, like the goodwill of their contributors, it is an asset that they have since squandered.
