1 / Are you still uploading there??
« on: June 17, 2009, 01:30 »
With this recent news about screwing over StocXpert out of and Jupiter (I know the whole name and can't think of it lol), are you still going to upload there?  I know some were opted out.

I'm on the fence because it feels like a slow slide to them simply closing it.  At the same time, they could surprise me.  I'm still digesting all this.  No wonder my sales have tanked there.  They were really good while they lasted too.

2 / Crestock Email Addresses?
« on: May 26, 2009, 07:54 »
Is there something other than their stupid help desk I could email in maybe fair better and getting a response?  I'd read people emailed to get their accounts closed.

Where do I email to?

3 / Can't log in...
« on: February 17, 2009, 00:15 »
Ok...I"ve moved twice since I last posted on these boards lol.  So, I've had to change my email to my stock sites, and I have a standard email box, not devoted to my internet provider. 

I CANNOT log in to my account.  I contacted support, and they updated my email but told me they couldn't give me what my password was, and told me to use the 'forgot password?' button.  So I did, only every time I do, I get an error saying it cannot do that at this time.

I'm not even exactly sure what my login is LOL.  I was pretty sure, and still am, but with it not letting me log in...frustrating.

Is there anything I can do?  I know that's a stupid question, but I figured I'd put this on here in case somebody else may have login issues.

4 / Pricing confusion?
« on: March 28, 2008, 18:02 »
I just got this in my inbox at Zymmetrical..


I just noticed you have been changing (lowering) prices as I bring them online. I don't know if you saw, but you had a sale for this file earlier for $5.  I look at at it now and the price is down to $2.

I know you may be used to other agencies and have the feeling our prices are set to high, but I would strongly advise waiting a bit before bringing everything down to the $2 - $3 mark. For example, we had two other raster graphic sales today, one for $11 and for $8.

As we are in Beta, there is at present very little spent on marketing and promotions at this point - however I guarantee after 4 years of experience running that people will pay more than $2 for graphics (to that end, maybe you'd like to make some Flyer designs for submission there?).

Perception of value is very important to our marketplace, and while you're absolutely free to bring prices down to rock bottom, I just thought I'd shoot you this note - especially as our Art Manager is barbaric at this point and very slow to change files prices/tags (new version will be online soon).

The "$2" that I apparently lowered my pricing to...that is what I am assuming is the price for the 'small' size.  Am I correct?  I "was" going to price my port at Zymm, about the way that I do at Featurepics.  I was pricing at $5, and apparently someone likes it because I made a sale and have $3.50 in my account now.

So now I am confused and wanted advice on what others are pricing.  The perception of value kinda threw me.  I'm there to make sales.  So is that implication more towards leave our pricing structure alone?  I thought the part of the advantage of Zymm was that you could set your own pricing...rock bottom or not??

I won't change prices or rock the boat.

Thank you.

5 / If I only have one approved...
« on: March 07, 2008, 02:19 »
Does that mean I'm in, as accepted??  I mean I have my account and all, and one did get approved.  I have like 55 in wait.

Also, can someone please tell me if it is possible to edit or delete a file that is in wait?  I have realized my keywording error, in that I had over 20 keywords.  I'd like to try and speed the review process along, if my keywording is holding it up.

Thank you  8)

6 / Questions on Uploads...
« on: March 05, 2008, 11:26 »
I can't find much on the Zymmetrical forums, so I thought I'd post here...I did there, and nobody answered me lol. 

I FTP my work.  For those that FTP there, is it normal to wait for your stuff to be moved from your FTP folder to submissions?  Do you continue uploading batches as normal, even with your folder full??

I twitch with this, I'm sorry lol.  I don't like not being able to immediately (as in the span of an hour or so) being able to see my work and EDIT it.  A lot  of my work is older, have some outdated keys.  I'm in the process of editing my entire collection, but I like being able to double check and correct anything such as misspellings. 

It just seems like an entirely different anmial over there.  I'm hoping someone will share their experiences, and or tips?  I love the set up.  it's really clean, and it IS something I can get used to.  I think my biggest hangup is wanted to EDIT lmao, and not being able to until it's approved and in the art manager.

Thanks in advance for anyone who responds.  8)

7 / Payment?
« on: March 04, 2008, 15:53 »
I made enough for a pay out through paypal.  I clicked on the request earnings button, and went through the steps.  Is that all I need to do?  It states that they need requests in writing, but if they want an email, they don't give an address to email and tell them.  I hope my request went through lol.  I kinda could use that money  ;D

8 / What is wrong with these keywords?
« on: February 18, 2008, 00:44 »
 ???  I've been submitting to SS for almost a year.  I do fractal art.  This is my gallery:

The past three submissions have been rejected due to keywording.  I always check the Illustration box, and pick Illustrations as my first category, so I know that isn't it.  I also know, understandably, that they are really cracking down because of keyword spamming.

What I want to know is what is descriptive.  I don't use words such as 'flyer', 'advertisement' and such as I have seen in quite a few of the fractal images.  I hate even going into concepts, because everyone always sees something different where fractal art is concerned.

I'm not going to post the picture, but I have a fractal heart that split into twin spirals, making for a very elegant, and nifty heart.  These are the keywords I am using, some of which I used when I resubmitted after the first mass rejection, just to be met with another rejection lol.

abstract, fractal, illustration, digital, art, design, background, dark, red, maroon, shade, color, pattern, spiral, curl, coil, twist, twirl, heart, shape, flow, curve, layer, fan, form, contrast,  smooth, texture, dynamic, surreal, detail, Valentine, day, illusion, move, motion,  movement

All of these words, other than Valentine's day, 'describe' what is in the image.  The heart is layered, so there is a fanning effect to it, in layered fashion.  I didn't even use "background" as a keyword.  Is there someone here that can help?  I've heard some mention limiting your keywords down to 10, which leaves not a lot of room to 'describe' an image.  I'm ok with that, but that leads to a question.  Do I just wittle it down to bare bones for SS, and then submit my normal amount of keywords to the other sites?  Is anyone having to deal with this, in that I want to know do you use the same keywords for all sites?

Here is a link to another image, a style which I like doing, very 'thready'.

The keywords under it are what I just edited them to, today.  It was already submitted some time ago before the rejections started.

Please, any help would be so appreciated.

9 / How long to join??
« on: February 14, 2008, 03:58 »
I submitted some images there about a week ago, and they are still in the pending approval stage.  Does anyone have a time frame of how long it takes initially to be approved?
