Got banned as I was a little annoyed that the PP sales came in so slowly, and Lobo couldn't handle my cynicism.

I simply posted: "We won't get our money before Monday, mark my words."

It's feckin banjaxed as they say in the auld sod.
"banjaxed"
OK, I 'd better leave the dictionary on my desk until the whole PP reporting is finished, cause I have the feeling more creative vocabulary is coming!

Check out "feck" too, Anyka. It's an interesting Irish word which as far as I know now only exists in English in the form "feckless", it's not a way of saying what you probably think it means.

Feck has a lot of meanings  :) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feck

Are you saying we should be feckless?

The devil's work, Sir! A programme that implies that priests are child abusers, thieves, perverts, drunkards, atheists and fools! What could possibly have made them think of such a thing?

It's halfway through a Canadian weekend (give or take), and I've only had one PP sale through, from 3rd.  I know I only have a small port, but I usually see more than that, especially if this weekend is May AND June.  It sounds like I'm not alone in seeing far fewer sales than expected (though do correct me if I'm wrong), which is a) reassuring, it's not just that my port has gone down the plughole, and b) concerning, what is going on with PP?



Its knackered mate.
"Knackered".  Had to use my dictionary for that one.  The Istock forum is really good for my English.  I'm learning lots of new words they don't teach you at school in Belgium   ;D
in lesser polite terms I'd say "buggered" rather than "knackered".

No, no, it's definitely knackered, like an old, broken-down horse off to be slaughtered at the knacker's yard.

It's a good word for iStock as a whole, actually, conjuring up, as it does, thoughts of something that was once young, virile and useful, but which has grown old and tired, and is being abused and torn apart so that the last bits of value can be scraped from its twitching carcass. (Or is that too graphic?).

That may be the best description of iStock that I've ever read!

Three days done.  It could be late August before this is finished?  Wonder if July report will be included?   :P

I don't think I've got a quarter of one day done. If you're going to use it as the basis of a calculation, that says at least nine months to get May reported. Somehow, I think something will have to happen

Still nothing for me either. PP sales are usually 2/3 of my income at iStock. I find it disturbing that you cannot complain to your representative (iStock) about nonpayment of royalties without being banned from their forums.

I really feel badly for the full-time stock folks, whose bills still have to be paid on time despite not receiving their paychecks.

They probably just decided they didn't want to work the weekend.  I bet the processing will start tomorrow.

I find their contemptuous attitude towards paying people their meagre dues despicable and worrying. What on earth do they do for their 55% - 85%?
When you think how finicky they used to be about what we did for our 15% - 45%, it's infuriating that they won't sanction overtime to make sure people get paid on time.

I'm looking forward to reading this post : "... but the fine folks in development thought maybe it would be better if we processed MAY, JUNE  and JULY together instead"

I doubt if they could find anyone to work overtime.... it is Stampede in Calgary.... http://cs.calgarystampede.com/events/

I realise that it's one of the two Big Things about Calgary (the other being that loads of Scots including me have relatives there. [wonder if they sell Irn Bru like they do in Barga, Italy]). However, I'm sure just like they could get atheists, agnostics or people from other world religions to work over Christmas, especially for the usual triple time, I'm sure they could find someone not very interested in the Stampede to do overtime for money or a good time off in lieu deal. H*ll, this isn't like that stupid Yuri stunt where he messed up and his workers had to work all night. This is paying contributors their due.

Perfectly accurate, I'd say. 

Here we are nearly through with Sunday and PP reporting still hasn't begun in earnest. 

I am starting to get a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach, wondering if we are ever going to see that money without an attorney's intervention. 

Hope I'm wrong and it starts showing up...

Would they let it go that far?

I dont understand how they can delay earnings by two months and be so fecking ignorant about it.
