Um, the title says it all.

I haven't been paying close attention, but isn't it usually around the 15th of the month. What's today?

This Episode of PayWatch = Oct. 23rd still no September PP reporting.   >:(

Midnight the 24th, now it's the 25th. Still no PP credit report.

October 26th, it's official, my first PP from Sept. appeared.

Why don't you post that question on the IS forums?  ;) We could have a betting pool how long the thread lasts...  ;D

Lets just cut to the chase.
Istock are hopeless when it comes to

1) Their website
2) keeping independent contributors happy
3) keeping promises

Did you forget that there was Rock, Paper, Scissors Tournament on Saturday? I didn't expect that PP sales could be updated this weekend.

Friday.
They don't have (m)any people working on a Saturday except maybe a junior IT wallah.

Perhaps they've moved it to the last weekend of the month, so they can keep hold of our money for a bit longer?  Or is it just yet another glitch?  It's a shame they can't send an email when all the sales have been reported, that would save having to check all the time.  I suppose that would be a nice thing for contributors, so it will never happen :)

There's the odd exclusive contributor that's still happy.
My thoughts are they must be on the good side of vetta and agency sales etc.

I wonder if the winner from the rock paper sissors will go to a World Rock Paper Scissors Society sanctioned tournament.

Another interesting fact from Wikipedia

"An often used example of a four-weapon game adds "dynamite" as a trump. Dynamite, expressed as the extended index finger or thumb, always defeats rock, and is defeated by scissors. Using dynamite generally implies that dynamite burns paper, but some claim that paper would smother the fuse. The fourth option of dynamite changes each gesture's odds of winning. For instance, scissors' odds improve from 33% to 50% while rock's odds decrease from 33% to 25%. Dynamite can be used to cheat by quickly raising or lowering the thumb on the downstroke once the opponent's play is recognized. Some organized rock-paper-scissors contests never use dynamite, for the reasons above"

I'm wondering if the reporting procedure is broken?  StockXpert posted their TS results last week.  Not what that has to do with anything ... but ???

Actually, that's a very useful bit of information.  It means that the TS reporting isn't broken.  It's the Istock end of things that is broken. 

Surprise Surprise Surprise

1) "We also have fewer horses and bayonets,"
2) "Somebody is finally getting tough on Big Bird,"
3) "Why don't you post that question on the IS forums?"

Well if I had to choose, none of the above makes any sense, but #3 was the best quip!  :D

I wonder if they'll end up closing istock?  It seems to get worse all the time, as more and more buyers leave, wont it be easier just to have an istock exclusive collection as part of Getty and have Thinkstock for independents?

First they are late...

For me this month PP sinks 90%. Only reports from few days of month 3, 4, 5 th and 28th of september?! Anything between 5th and 28th of september is they plundering space.

I really dont trust them any more for nothing what they say/announce from they bloody mouth...
Worst thing is that they dont announcing nothing, just play cutting/rock game on they forum.

Seems more and more that Thinkstock and PP in general are picking up the iStock slack?  Maybe?  :-\

For me personally, yes.  IS has gone from $400-$500 a month before PP to $200-$300 a month.  I am making up most of that through PP.  Given all the sh_t that's going on there they clearly are allocating their labor assets to other things or they are incompetent or simply don't care about IS.

They've always staggered it like this but they were doing it much earlier in the month.  So they can now keep lots of our money in their bank for a few extra weeks.  From now on, I'll withdraw as soon as I get over the threshold there.  I used to leave it for a while but if they want to play games like this with my earnings, I'll get my money out of there ASAP.
