it's the 16th (for me), usually by now we'd see something come trickling through?

What'd you expect? They're giving them away.

It almost always runs over the weekend. It has often been very late in the month.

They made a "rule" for the PP forum that no one was to ask when they'd start posting the earnings - they have no schedule and they don't want to be asked about it :)

W*nkers aren't they? It's like they're doing us a really big favour bothering to pay us at all.

Dont talk too loud, maybe you wake them up from winter beer dream again and again.
Before two years we wake up them in middle of spring with statistic and you see what they do to us with RC targets when you wake them on wrong leg.
Last year we wake them up at spring start (to early) and you can see what are they doing now.
Keep them to RIP
hopefully than will not be more problems with them any more...
Pssssss, pssssssss
keep quiet......

It's heeeeerrreeeee....

- starting anyway.  This means they won't touch any server settings until they are through.  I opted out of this program today.  I think I'm losing the crown too.

I've probably misunderstood what you meant, but I hope you know that if you lose the crown all your images are compulsorily in the PP.

Yea, Sue I'm aware. I meant get out of IS all together.  Really sad/angry about the whole mess. Like most people, I've removed my people pics - only 5, I do mainly illos.  I need to research where to go next.

That's OK, I misunderstood, and thought you meant you opted out of the PP and were about to become indie (but keep your files there as a non-exclusive).
Sorry - as you were.  :)

They're only up toDec 3rd so far - there's lots more of the month ahead. And January will be slower - March will be the next uptick.

ETA: They're working on Dec 4th  Dec 5th now

Nothing for me either.  But then again, they (iStock/Getty) seem to have other issues going on this month.

I got a extend license sale for 27 dollars but its not showing on my balance on the main page. The .28 sales are. Do the EL totals show up after they finish for the month? I'm asking here because I never get satisfactory answers on there forum.

Rolling them in late so we don't find those new Google royalties until later.

How do you know about a PP EL if it's not showing in your balance?

In past months the larger amounts - something like $24.10 as I recall - showed up along with the other sales. I was able to look at my graphs for the month and see the bars where the $$ were not 28 cents x number of downloads for that day. But any numbers that showed up there were also increasing my balance.

But any numbers that showed up there were also increasing my balance.

Basically that's the only way I know of.  I download the CSV file and am able to know if the days are exactly 28 cents or something different.  I assume there are other ways to get more than 28 cents a Dl because I already see a problem on one of my December days, but it's only like $4 and change.  Maybe Istock has made an even sweeter deal.  I sure as Sh*t hope not.
