Is there any hope of having the option of grouping releases so only one release is submitted per model as per Dreamstime's (crazy) requirement?

That policy sure feels crazy to me.

Example:

I have a friend that really doesn't want to appear in any sold image with his face showing.
I have a release for a image with him his face masked. I use my own release with a shoot description, but there is no field for shoot description in DS's own MR form.
So if I would be "idiot" I could sell all the fun/artsy photos we have shot with the guy since i have the one release from year -1. All released in DS.

The example might be far fetched, but why refuse several releases? What harm does it do to allow more than one release /person?

HDD space comes in to mind, but it's like "a fart in the desert" compared to the HDD space all the images use.

One of the reasons they do this is so all pics with the same model release are grouped together for page display purposes. Every time one of the model's pics is viewed you get a "more photos with this model" row of images underneath the main pic. I believe the releases are coded behind the scenes in some way to automatically fill that area with pics of the same model in case someone really wants more images of the same person. Not a bad thing.

Why people want to complicate things? the original reason for me to stop uploading to istock was this nonsensical obligation for a new model release for every handful of shots. as for being a crook, you can just forge releases anyway, and theres nothing they can do about it.

exactly, that's why i think digital releases are actually more authentic, cos you have to take a photo of them with the release.

the only good thing about the DT system is that I often upload images there first if they are of my kids, as i know they are already released. I've got images I shot of the one model but about a week apart (6 months ago) and i have misplace the * MR from one of the shoots, so i've only uploaded half to the other agencies, but DT gets both. It's good for me, not very protective of the model at all, because I've shot her on a third occasion without a release at all but could probably upload the pics to DT if I wanted.
