General Stock Discussion / Crestock uploads suspended for months???
« on: September 05, 2018, 05:14 »
Just checked in with Crestock and found the following message:

"Uploads Unavailable
Please note that we are not accepting any new content for several months as we prepare for major changes to our IT infrastructure. Apologies for the inconvenience this may cause."

SEVERAL MONTHS?!! Getting a really bad feeling about them. I'd just like to keep going long enough to get my FIRST payment from them, after many years, but I think in the long run I'm just going to end up losing what I've accrued and never get to a payoff amount.

Still upgrading their server. How long does that actually take? I'm starting to wonder.

Me too.  I've been trying to access files I sent through FTP for three or four days, and I keep getting that same message.

They closed on 11th Feb and all business has been transferred to IS. Why would you expect the site to be 'up'?

I thought they said they were going to maintain the site for access to account information.  ???

I had four sales fairly consecutively back in May-June 2008, but nothing since then.

Print on Demand Forum / Re: Any experience with Zazzle?
« on: August 24, 2009, 08:50 »
I've been on Zazzle as SJS Creations since March of 2008, and a few days ago I sold my 100th item.  Mostly it's been small stuff (stickers, postcards, a few posters), but occasionally I get a decent big sale.  The traffic on it is pretty steady, but I advertise my store on Myspace, Facebook and Craigslist.  It's fun, but it can be time consuming sometimes.  If you want to take a look, my store is at the following link:*

New Sites - General / Trouble With Fotomind Site?
« on: May 26, 2009, 00:24 »
Has anyone else besides me been having trouble logging into the Fotomind site?  I haven't been able to log in for a while (it seems like weeks).  It just takes forever to load and never goes anywhere.  Same if I try the "Contact Us" link to contact them directly and get information.  Just stays on the home page and loads forever.  Nothing.

Just as I was about to close out my account due to inactivity, I sold one in May, and three in June.  Nothing since then.

13 / Re: Can Anyone Login to StockXpert Yet?
« on: October 26, 2008, 22:25 »
I sent them an email a couple of days ago telling them I still couldn't log in, and got a reply that they are aware of the situation and are working on it.  As of today, I'm still not able to log in.

« on: June 16, 2008, 23:05 »
I tried to get on Zymmetrical's site just now, and I'm getting an error message indicating that the site can't be if it's gone.  Does anybody know what's going on with them?

19 / Re: Big changes
« on: March 07, 2008, 17:31 »
I am surprised that more people are not upset with the 50% acceptance rule.

Lets drive the conclusions home:

1. You have a portfolio of lets say a 100 images, some sales, some money in your account and about 65% acceptance rate

2. You continue uploading, but most of your images are rejected and your acceptance rate falls to 49%

3. Now you are blocked from further uploading. Do you understand what this means? There is NO WAY to raise your acceptance rate without more uploading and you have just been banned (forever?) from further uploading.

4. Now your 100 pics online are locked in forever, your $40 in pending payout money are blocked forever, and all you can do is hope that the pics you've got online will one day bring you enough money for minimal payout, but you are practically banned from EVER uploading to the site again (unless you open another account)

Am I the only one who thinks this is outrageous????


The following was posted on CanStockPhoto's forum today:

Just one thing I don't get. If someone does go below 50% rating, are they effectively barred forever from uploading, it's not made clear. So once they go under the 50% they might as well leave, is that what it's saying?
How will it work? How can they get back to uploading?

It seems this question is still waiting for an answer. I'm sure there are several that would like to hear this answer. Duncan???????

Actually I answered it in the thread about upload limits.

For the time being we are allowing a 1/day limit for people below 50%. This is subject to change, but gives them the opportunity to carefully raise their rating back up.

I had the same problem with their FTP upload, too, and I sent a note to them about it.  I got the following response from Keith...

"It seems our FTP server is not registering the new artist accounts in it's database as it should be - we are investigating and I will drop you a note when this is repaired."

I checked earlier today and it still wasn't functional, but they are working on it.

General Stock Discussion / Re: Fotomind?
« on: January 08, 2008, 22:20 »
I've had one sale for .60 since joining in October of '07.  The biggest problem I'm having at this point is getting the balance of my portfolio reviewed.  I have well over 200 photos that have been sitting in review since the beginning.  I contacted them in mid-December and they got back to me pretty quickly, and advised that I had uploaded my photos prior to a server upgrade and that everything had to be moved manually, causing the delay in review.  Unfortunately, I'm still waiting for them to be reviewed, and it's been nearly three months.

They seem to be back online now.

New Sites - General / USPhotostock gone too?
« on: January 05, 2008, 02:03 »
I haven't been active on USPhotostock for some time, but I check back every now and then, anyway.  Today I got the same message for them that I'm getting for can't be found.  Another one bites the dust?

I just tried to access their site about 20 minutes ago, and I couldn't get on either.
