And why the boycott? I have about 100 photos there, I sometimes get royalties. There have never been any problems.

Have you done a google reverse image search for your photos?  You may be surprised to see them in use in more places than your royalties can account for.

byron dont listen to rinder the old fool, he has no real interest in your portfolio all he wants to do is knock you down and trash all over you and he'lll come up with a 50 year old story how he's been around since the 1800s shooting with magnesium flashes etc and that he makes 100k for a single photo yet he is still here selling images for 10 cent on shutterstock. he still has over 7000 images there and adding which makes him a hypocrite as well.

no one is allowed a different opinion from the masses up here, if you have you'll get trashed, mocked, insulted and patronised, just see the comment from martha as an example and she is supposed to be a sweet old lady

If you sell photos for .10$ you are a fool. That's it.

haha, I was sweet, and after hanging out here for a few years I'm a Cranky Old Crone.  ;D ;D
my photo is at least 10 years old, taken on the good side of 40.

*waving*  another crotchety old bat here.
Shutterstock was my first stock site, way back when I was enthusiastic about the business.
Now, I want to spit on their CEO.

I must 'fess up I'm getting crankier and older by the day.

And yes, my photo here was taken about the same time as yours, back when I was still on the good side of 60.

Cranky Old Crones, Unite! :D

Crochety old bat here, too!!!

I joined SS early in 2009 (the year my photo here was taken), back in the olden days when you had to pass a test to get in. I got in on the first try, with a set of hard-to-shoot bird photos, no less. Only after joining this forum a few years later did I learn how rare that was. I was proud to be a contributor to SS and even with a small portfolio made decent money.

Now I share your desire to spit, except I'd happily spit on the whole Shitterstock operation, not just the CEO.

Cranky, crotchety old crone here too. Microstock and photography was supposed to be at least part of my retirement. Yeah, right. Plan A up in smoke.

Best to lead with a stream of personal insults,  ridicule and age-ism.  Then, follow with your own victimization and a heroic appeal for freedom and tolerance.

Cathy, here's a thought:

Maybe we cranky and crochety old crones should start our own microstock sales site.

Just think of the fun promotions we could put out!

PS: Shelma probably isn't a cranky and crochety old crone just yet, but she might want to consider joining us, too. :D

Grumpy Old Woman aka Stoppy Scottish Cow here.

Happily, never contributed to SS, as I wouldn't knowingly upload for 25c. (Yeah, ironically, I'm leaving files elsewhere which can earn less, though the average is the right side of $1. Sometimes only just.  :( Occasionally submitting, but only when I incur no expenses other than time and electricity.

there you go again --more ad hominem attacks. i know he can stand up for himself, but when have you seen rinder attack a  newbie? and when have you seen an attack as vicious as yours on him?
