Pond5 / am I missing something here?
« on: December 08, 2016, 02:20 »
firstly, sorry if this has been spoken about already or if people are having similar issues I don't know about, but;

i signed into P5 for the first time in several months - where i did have some clips available, and a bunch that i needed to fill metadata for - what i was right about to start doing then i sign in today and literally the entire portfolio is showing as rejected. and rejected clips that have never been submitted even and clips that were previously accepted.

all of my clips have prices set above the new minimums they've laid out.

i don't know what else it can be. thanks to anyone with help to offer.

123RF / how long is the wait?
« on: May 16, 2016, 18:04 »
I decided to give 123RF a try. never started a portfolio there for whatever reason..

just curious if anyone knows how long the wait is right now? i've uploaded a batch of 800 images but can't tell if they've entered the queue yet or not, its not the most intuitive process IMO.  They all (95%) have keywords and captions intact in the JPEGs. Do I need to do anything else to them to get them in front of a reviewer? They seem to be sitting in 'incomplete' section for at least two weeks now.

Image Sleuth / Etsy Selling Large Format Stock Photo prints
« on: March 04, 2016, 08:57 »
This is an Etsy shop selling large format prints of microstock photos. I've recognized a lot of them. I've contacted SS about this a long time ago as it was the only place that exact version of my image was available.. they said they would look into it and it nothing became of it - and that was months upon months ago, possibly >1year

when I was doing my own personal investigating, I found the owner to live in Toronto using a mixture of his business name, and some whois requests.  Im sure any savvy internet use can do the same as I did. 

I even used my Etsy account to compliment his photos and ask where he got them he never replied to me.

i recognize a lot of stock on here.  +1,300 individual sales as you can see by the Etsy stats.   look for yours.

Pond5 / Pond 5 Review Outcomes
« on: February 28, 2016, 13:59 »
Firstly, I tried searching the forum but with no luck so hoping someone can answer my quick question:

is there a place where I can find the review outcomes of my pond5 submissions?

I finally had the batch I sent through in december get a look over, and just trying to find out what the reasons for rejection are. Can anyone help me find out what particular reason each clip has been rejected for?

Thanks in advance.
