I just got 50% of my last batch rejected, a batch that has 100% AR everywhere else. Is the same story, the one that was happening around the same time of the year last year, happening again. Rejection reasons were the most standard Focus, but in most cases it was composition. This came on top of what I reported 8 days ago:

Are any of you getting illogical trademark rejections? I mean there were none left I doublecheked the files. And I've had identical photos, just with a different model accepted a couple of months ago. And the first part of this series a few days ago. I pointed that out when I resubmitted the images and they've all been rejected for tm issues and what's even worse all of the photos from 2 other series. Needles to say they've been accepted on all the other sites. That's what you get for being a "smartass". Because they don't make mistakes. And it's not the first time it happened either, I just never pointed out the accepted photos/batches. It's so unprofessional to take it out on someone else for your own mistakes

Say what you want about IS (or any other top 4 site for that matter), at least they are consistent. And that's what matters the most consistency, so at least you can adjust to their standards (you obviously want to have the highest possible AR with your best selling site). And I also understand better you arguments against exclusivity now. Imagine this lack of clear set, any set of standards of inspection, topped with a search engine shakeup. It could lead to a disaster.

Ur anonymous, drugal is anonymous, wim is anonymous, JPSDK is anonymous how do I know you aren't all the same person or that any of you have any pictures on ss? You could all be fake trouble makers.

Actually I'm Wut, Lagereek, Wim, Drugal, JPSDK, Ed, louissantos84, alexmk,  oh and Milinz  ::)

NO ONE, is defending anything here!  I have just told WUT, to contact them and try again!  see, this is what happens when one doesnt follow or read the postings properly.
We all know that fighting rejects doesnt lead to anything. In all my cases, sites, I have very, very few rejections, but if a reviewer can not give solid proof of rejections, then Im not interested,  dont matter if theres one reject or 20.

i've tried contacting , but either ignored or boilerplate responses

most recently, a reivewer rejected a series, but said they should be resubmitted as editorial - did so,  with note to reviewer - all rejected  why bother telling us to resubmit?

another frequent case - old maps, anatomy illustrations, previouslt accepted, now keep getting "tell us the source" rejections when the info is all there in the description!  again no response

Now that is funny, the quote from Drugal alone, should tell you he has been around long enough to accurately size things up. The SS forums have become a never ending billboard for those who spam workshops to unsuspecting members. The critique forum has been unbearable for years.


Arr, so bad is it not. There are good photographers at SS, and there are qualified critiques.

Now you are twisting my post and putting words in my mouth.  Of course there are good photographers at SS and there are qualified critiques. But it is a fact that many great photographers do not participate in that board as a result of the issues Drugal mentioned. In fact a few people here have been banned from SS for speaking their mind about it.  When good photographers do pop in to the critique area the newcomers do not even know who they are. I have watched a few great photographers give killer advice only to be ignored in favor of questionable advice from members of the old guard promoting their business. To be fair I have not participated on the SS boards for a long time, but when I do occasionally drop in, nothing has changed, promoting business is the order of the day and more members of the group are trying to take a piece of that action.  I would be willing to bet it the $$$$$$$ dried up they would be gone in an instant.

Blah, Blah,Blah. TYLER.....CLOSE MY ACCOUNT HERE AND IM ASKING FOR THE SECOND TIME . I will not be slandered nor will I allow my students to be thought of as fools from trying to learn something other than this silly business. Theres so much More and  90% of you miss it and it  amazes me. Always will.I've made a GREAT living with my camera since the middle 60's. You guys go right past it. shame.

And you'll never understand that part of this. maybe you will someday. I hope so when your microstock world collapses . Goodbye to this forum and what it could have been.

Yup, I hate to see him go too. Not many here seem to care though so he's probably better off.
He's got better things to worry about then this anyway.
Laurin is a man of few words but that already seems to piss people off.
So what if he teaches classes, I don't care, it's not like he's forcing people with gun to their head now is it.
My respect goes to him for being in the business longer then my age and that counts for many of us btw, and I'm not talking about the photography industry only, but as a musician I respect him too.

Laurin, talk later hombre, take care.
