Title: why can't I start a new thread?
Post by: leaf on November 11, 2008, 16:29
Firstly, welcome to the forum.

If you want to connect to other new users, you can check out the *newbies only* forum area here
http://www.microstockgroup.com/**newbies-only**/ (http://www.microstockgroup.com/**newbies-only**/)

In regards to starting threads, members who are 'lurkers' (those who have less than one post) are not able to start new threads.  This is an effort to cut down on spambots.

Once you have made one post, your status is upgraded to 'Newbie' and you can start your own threads.

Also:  when you do start a new thread, please give the thread a descriptive subject.  If you are going to ask a question, put the question in the subject.  A thread that is titled 'a question for you' or 'I am having problems' is not helpful and will probably not get a very good response.  Instead try 'I am having problems with my ftp program Filezilla' or 'What is the best FTP software?'

Darn. I thought this was going to be a reminder to check out the forum search to see if someone already started a thread on your earthshattering news you came to share.  ;)

I didn't realize how bots were until I built a simple guestbook page on my website. I had to go back in today and add a little validation process. I hope it's good enough - I've been getting slammed with bot entries.

I just registered and this is my first post.  I have been following the Microstock Group  for some time and greatly appreciate all the shared information.  I've been meaning to sign up and join in so today is the day.  By the way, I have been making 100% of my living from shooting stock for the last 15 years and got involved in microstock one year ago.

Been going around and around MSG, wondering why I can't start a thread. Just read the above, so hopefully now that I've posted this, I can start a thread and I can stop hitting my laptop.

this forum is cool in the sense that there is a freedom to express your views without getting ex-communicated like some other forums (no need to mention, most of you already know them).  we have an amazing bunch of pros and cons and our bitch is obvious, and yes, at times can get furious (throwing everything at each other from baseball bats... shucks, no pun intended... to your mammy's old shoes)  ;D
but as soon as you get someone pimping their images or trying to use this is a commercial launchpad to fatten their wallets, you can see us all joining forces to make fun of it. sure, we do pimp our own images once in a while, but we know it's going to be pointed out and we laugh together at our shameless deeds.

still, this is where we meet. the only thing missing here is the real ale and good looking waitresses. but other than that, we got a good pub here. welcome to you new people.

Hello and thank you for explaining what I must do to start a new thread.

I also want to say I have found this website / forum very helpful over the last few days, as I have been lurking and reading. I have learned a lot about the new venture I am about to start, as I am totally new to stock photography.

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!

Yeah, well put Perseus - we WERE all newbies once.  I should dig up that thread that had quotes from the big microstockers when they were just beginning.  I only remember one of the quotes which was from Yuri asking how to keyword images :)

edit:.. found it.

Quote from: Yuri
How do I apply keywords in photoshop?
Something about a file to add..
And how do I get these keywords added to the SS upload area?

Quote from: Yuri
Seles are going great.
This month: 640 DL with 440 pics. NICE!

no problem tyler, you owe me a pint of Guinness.  ;D

also it's interesting to read those quotes from Yuri .
i don't feel so bad now, still being an idiot at keywording ;
at least i knew how to embed keywords in PS when i submitted my first submission    :D

When posting if you click the 'additional options' link below the typing area you can upload an image directly into a post.  Otherwise if you want to link an image on another website you can use the img tags like this.

Code: [Select]
[img] PUT THE WEBSITE ADDRESS TO YOUR IMAGE HERE [/img]
or you can just put the link in your post, then select it, then click on the image icon when you are posting (third one from the left) and it will add the img tags for you.

+1 Linda. It is always helpful when admins get involved directly here. It cuts through some of the speculation about what our agencies are doing. Regards, David

Well, that's that then. Having proved I'm not a Spambot, does anyone want to buy some special cream  ;D

Actually I honestly appreciate and understand the reason for the security.  I'm in search for advice on finding an outlet/s for a single image, which isn't a photograph.  And that's the problem.  It's a JPEG and something I created in Photoshop.

I'll post my request for advice elsewhere.

Hi everybody

I am Stewart Ben Scott but my nickname is Art Ben Co ----> Stew(art) (Ben) S(co)tt
Just thought I would clear that up. I don't often use that alias anymore but its my username on Istock so I have kept it for that purpose. I would just like to introduce myself and say hit to everyone.

I love photography, photoshop and digital art. I have been a photographer for almost 6 years now going professional since march this year. I have an extensive portfolio of varied subjects. I cant really pigeon hole my work as it is so varied. I am currently working on a blog feel free to check it out www.fablephotos.co.uk/wordpress (http://www.fablephotos.co.uk/wordpress) it would be great to have some feedback.

Go to "Forum," choose which category you'd like to post under, and at the top right you'll see a button that says "New Topic."

Aha! so that's the secret.  I am not a bot, though a boyfriend who couldn't get my attention once complained that when I die they will cut me open and find a silicon chip where my heart should be.  I gave up the boyfriend and kept the computer.   :)  So now I'm off to research a question and quite possibly start a thread.

Hi friends
this is my first thread here. I have followed yours from a long time. You help me a lot! Thanks!
RM,RF,Exclusivity,EL  Ufff!  Basicaly I know the difference between all those concepts, well I think so...?
Sure you have the answer to my questions:
Can you submit a RM file to more tham one agency or you need to go necessary exclusive for this. For example go to Alamy and PantherMedia at same time...?

I have a few photos that maybe someone would consider (with a lot of love) artistic shots, I mean "overfiltered" blurs ... Where you would submit them?

Hello, my name is Rana and I am doing research on the availability of photos about everyday people, not professional models. I also would like to know how many microstock photographers have images not submitted of minorities, the homeless, the underserved, etc. as opposed to shiny happy perfect people that I've seen inundating the current sites. I will be starting a thread about this subject if I don't find a current one. Thanks!

Thanks for the information. This is my first time here. I've been dabbling in microstock for almost a year and have not had any success yet. I just downloaded the book by Rob Sylvan, Taking Stock: Make Money in Microstock Creating Photos... I'm hoping with that book and this forum I can learn a lot and turn that around.

Firstly, welcome to the forum.

If you want to connect to other new users, you can check out the *newbies only* forum area here
[url]http://www.microstockgroup.com/[/url]**newbies-only**/ ([url]http://www.microstockgroup.com/[/url]**newbies-only**/)

In regards to starting threads, members who are 'lurkers' (those who have less than one post) are not able to start new threads.  This is an effort to cut down on spambots.

Once you have made one post, your status is upgraded to 'Newbie' and you can start your own threads.

Also:  when you do start a new thread, please give the thread a descriptive subject.  If you are going to ask a question, put the question in the subject.  A thread that is titled 'a question for you' or 'I am having problems' is not helpful and will probably not get a very good response.  Instead try 'I am having problems with my ftp program Filezilla' or 'What is the best FTP software?'


understood, totally -- I mean, for the spambots portion of which we have more than enough ourselves on our own (significantly smaller-than-Microstockgroup) websites out there...

Lex, it is not correct.
I am several years already here. I had some cases when it was better to start a new thread, but never ever it was allowed. I had advises from other microstockers that person even with multiple posts should send a demand e-mail to support first. This corresponds to cases when absolutely new person could receive possibility to create a new thread

Kind of slow loading, but I got there. Oh x deselects words instead of adding them. Oops. Odd, but of all the words, I only wanted six and not the other 30, so to pick words, I would need to remove 30 irrelevant words and keep the six I wanted? Maybe I missed some other way to select, instead of backwards, pick the words you don't want?

I will say, however you are reading data, it's up to date. I checked a few words for a subject and you have an image I uploaded this month, row one too!

Nice effort.

You have 6 posts and a status of "Newbie" so I think you should be able to create new threads.

However, Leaf has been making changes to try and halt the flood of spam, so it's possible there's an error somewhere. You might want to contact him (via the contact link at the bottom of each page) to ask him to check on your account.

I must have missed that.

I recommend checking out the Pond5 forums if you're a contributor, but the latest change was a drop from 50% to 35% contributor share for all audio and a complete shutdown of communication with the artists. Before that, random $50/$80 price caps on customer search results, excluding clips above those prices. Before that, misinformation about the exclusive program and a drop from 50% to 40% for non-exclusive video...
Title: Re: why can't I start a new thread?
Post by: cobalt on August 26, 2019, 13:24
The pond5 forums have always been extremly open and artist friendly.

What happened? Does the place have new owners??

All I keep hearing is that many artists put a lot of work into going exclusive with them and deleting portfolios elsewhere and now abruptly  their sales have dropped 80%.

msg is a very open place with an open discussion culture. Not very PC..-but very straightforward...

Otherwise you can always open a facebookgroup and invite who you want to talk to.

But msg is independent, so you are welcome here.

I do hope they keep their forums.

If you ban discussions, you ban reality.

Without reality a business dies...
