Anxious to see May Report on PP Sales.  With all the emphasis "cheap" TS should offer some pretty good numbers ... I hope.   :P

Must be waiting for the weekend?  They certainly make it difficult, knowing when to expect the monthly report.  >:(

And after last month's relatively quick report I thought they were getting their act together :-\

Wondering if flooding may affect operations (PP report.)  Part of my PP portfolio is from the old StockExpert agency.  I've been following that site for PP results.  No results at either site.

I suspect between the transition to the new levels and the flooding the PP is very low on their priority list.  It's always seemed like it was a manual operation and I wouldn't be surprised to find that they are not bothering with that right now.

I agree.  PP does seem to be manual.  I'm seeing sales but that is automated process.  Just waiting to see.
And checking the Hemera Collection to see what happens there.

From Rob Mattingley, moderator:
"...there is a lot going on in Calgary right now, but if there is going to be a significant delay I'm sure we'll get someone in here to post to let everyone know.  There are still 8 days left in the month so the reporting isn't late yet.  Thanks for your understanding."

That's nothing to the time they've taken to get a lot of old E+ files transferred to Getty.
Always RSN.

I don't know...  It seems to me that they knew the PP figures for May before the big Switcheroo = Collections Restructure on June 13.  If they posted those earnings first, they wouldn't of had use of our funds for those weeks - we would have been paid and that function would not have been delayed by playing musical chairs with the Collection.

So I've read and seen that two days ago, the Bow and Elbow rivers that run through Calgary have flooded, so the city is in a state of emergency and downtown is closed down.

Yes and there is likely to be much more to this than a late PP Report.  Probably see a serious downturn in sales and services.
Here's hoping lives and property experience minimal damage.

Why a serious downturn in sales?
Services, probably, if staff have been given exceptional leave to deal with property, insurance, salvage etc. Probably a reduction in sales from the area affected as businesses deal with more pressing issues, but why would it affect international sales?

My thought was that "people" are involved in sales.  Are they totally automated?

At iStock, yes - there's no customer service out of Calgary working hours.

Oh... and you probably are right about sales.  I'm actually seeing an uptick.

What do they do?
Customer service? I'm not sure exactly, but some things I've read:
1. Explaining to customers what 'resolution' means.
2. Explaining to customers the difference between a raster and a vector.
3. Refunds.
4. Questions about whether ELs are needed in particular instances.

Lucky you on the sales upturn.  :)

Good to know.  Maybe Istock will post PP earnings by the end of the week.

If there is time and resources to publish an erroneous rate chart ...
there is time and resources enough to run the PP Report.
