My answer was going to be: When you are in the Microstock business. But I thought too many people don't see the ironic humor in that?

Isn't doing bad in the microstock business a given?

When you know that taking part in a fun thread on msg is as likely to be profitable as shooting something new for iStock.

When you tell an agency exactly what you think of them in their forum.

When you find threads like this an absorbing distraction from ... anything else at all really.

When you've got a hole in the bottom of your shoe and its pouring with rain - but you don't care because the Christmas card you got from Shutterstock provides a neat solution.

When you prepare a food shot and decide it's not worth the bother of photographing it, and just eat it hot instead.

When an old school friend who stands on his front lawn photographing the rainbow created by his sprinkler system and takes snapshots of his offspring picking their noses, shows you his camera....and it turns out to be worth more than your camera and the car you drove up in.

when you spend more time looking lens, forums and sales statistics than taking pictures.

"When Lobo feels sorry for you"

The topic name would have to be "What happens to your business when you pass away" for this to occur which still probably wouldn't happen...

As Wikipedia states, Kiribati, is an island nation in the central tropical Pacific Ocean.
Kiribati became independent from the United Kingdom in 1979. It is a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, the IMF and the World Bank, and became a full member of the United Nations in 1999.
And I don't think Kiribati is in the Vancouver area...  ::)  :D

When you join the MS world with hopes of fame and fortune and the vetrans there talk like they're all living like hobos, eating stale food and warming themselves by burning their dreams and aspirations. :P

When you go faux-exclusive at iS and the SS share price rises.
When you work out that selling your mountain of gear and investing the money in a deposit account at 0.3% interest would be a good financial move.

When you explain to your mother's cronies what it is you do and afterwards there is complete silence, apart from the cat releasing a fart. Then your mother says: "My other son is a lawyer."
