Whos looked at their PDF statements for January?

Most of mine say Exclusive sales, when i have no exclusive images there.
The sales dates are not in order.
The layout couldn't be worse.

Tried the txt download statement? good luck with the headache inducing pages

And what about the actual royalities webpage statement, all pretty graphs and all that, but give me a simple table like SS.

It doesnt even give you an actual monthly sales figure, you either need to guess from a graph, or add up all the bars on the graph, manually.

Is this really how its going to be? does anyone like it?

It takes real skill to mess things up so comprehensively. If they ever pull the same stunt on the buyers side they will be history.

My statement is dated Jan 1st, so its not clear if thats actually for Jan or Dec.

The PDF download has Dec and Jan sales on it, in a random order, brilliant.!!

The download for February 2015 - December 2016 on the same page, doesnt tie up with ANY!! previous monthly records i have had from istock.

Ive emailed them, im not hopeful of a comprehensive answer.

They tried, it didn't go well.

Hmmm, they were up to at least $275, soon after launch (I looked because I could hardly believe someone had suggested it!)

I guess the plan was to invite the iStock workers to a party and then torture them. But they declined the invitation. There is a saying: "This cat knows whose meat it ate."

There is an update at the fundraiser explaining they had to cancel it because istock employees aren't allowed to accept gifts.

Why they would throw a party to celebrate this monumental screwup is beyond my understanding.

I thought this a joke which is it if they think folks will give the more money! They should pay us $750 each for giving us a useless program (ESP). These folks make our government workers look good which is a very hard thing to do!  >:(
