LOL, All that waiting for $0.28  :o.

What a joke. At least they didn't claw back Nov or Oct. Although who knows how much I was "supposed" to make in December.

Did I mention, "what a joke"?

According to the PP thread over there, they're currently on 2nd Dec, so it's apparently not over yet.

That still may happen unless I am missing something.  I didn't see anything saying that clawbacks were completed.

A promising start for me; 2 days, 3,96 with 500+.

Yes, I see that. I didn't realize they did it like that. I figured they update the whole month at the same time. Shows how much I've ever paid attention to the PP.

FWIW I'm up to a whopping $0.56 now  ::)

I didn't see anything that clawbacks were started.
Allegedly, those affected were supposed to get emails first, and I haven't read that they've gone out.
"We will be sending the affected contributors email notifications of the total amount over paid as well as a recoupment schedule in the very near future. " Lobo, 9th Jan, but that'll be an iStock time indication. In fact, in the same updated post (top of the overpayment thread) he specified "We will be sending email notifications to the impacted contributors in the next week", which, as it was posted 9th Jan is well past the indicated date.

Hey you might get lucky. Maybe the difficulties and expense of clawing back the money will be more than the money they lose, so you might get to keep it (pigs might fly!).
Woteva, seems they're still on Dec 2nd.

But it's only the 28th!!

What probably happened is the IT Manager's hairpiece fell off and when he bent over to pick it up, his butt flicked the PP switch on - they just haven't noticed it yet.

PP December is on the 3rd now....I'm so surprised to receive any money. I wonder what is going to happen next: they take it back as a "repossesion" for their october mess? Where is that email they were about to send out two weeks ago?

I don't think clawbacks have started.  The first few days look about as usual for me and the money is showing in my balance.

For me I doubt it.  My PP sales were up by roughly $400, so I expect a clawback of $400. Man that is the epitome of incompetance.

I'll watch and see, I didn't get the notice or deleted it without reading. Shows how much I care about spam from agencies.

But I have a bunch of purple bars, no little green ones, which translated means, Getty Image DLs are through for the whole month for me, not one PP from TS?

I don't post numbers but fact is, I could go to Wendy's for some chili and a chocolate malt thing, get change back. Whoo Hoo big celebration.  ::)

Honestly I'm saving my Micro payments for an 8MM lens right now. Couple more months and I'll have that for night sky time-lapse shooting. (no not suitable for Microstock as usual, I just want to do it.)

PP up to the 16th of the month now. looks normal so far. What I noticed: I had regular sales all month, but no sales at all between december 24th and dec 29th like the site was closed. Anyone else the same pattern?

You mean no sales on Istock itself  for those days? Seems pretty normal to me.  Week between Christmas and New Years is always dead. I got a few sales, but less than on a typical Saturday.

I sell images on other sites too but none of them remained "as quiet" as IStock...

No. I had only 9 Istock (non PP sales), 2 of them on Dec 26th.

About PP sales, it seems to me strange that I have 9 sales in the first 8 days of December and none at all after.

Doing very well so far, which means it will chafe that much more when they finally figure out how to do their sums - and start reaching across the table for my previous winnings. Pirates.
