Many years back there was a big argument between Scott and Rinder it all ended up with Scott leaving and got about 50 peple banned in the process of leaving! and I'm talking some very big names getting banned!  being banned from SS is nothing new!

50 people banned from the forum for an incident? That's amazing. Must have been some real blow up? Banned for what reason? Fifty People! Scott?

You were around then?? no? it started with a row between Laurin and Scott and tons of members took Laurins side, cut a long story short it all got totally out of hand with lots of swearing this and that. Scott got the boot I think but just before leaving he banned lots of people that was cheering on Laurin!...surprised you dont remember??

Scott was the Admin there, then it makes more understanding how 50 people got banned by mad managers.

I was around (from 2012) but I don't remember such a mass punishment ever. Sure not 5 years ago because at this time more people would like to see Laurin gone than cheering on his stay.

I can still write on their forums but my contributor account was disabled when I reactivated my files for sale after the two week protest.

No reason was given, their small print apparently allows them to do this.

They brought in a new rule that if you deactivated your account you could not restore it for a month. Maybe, try again.

As Diane said Scott was in the Admin and got the boot, it wasnt officially known but actually it was more the 50 as some sort of revenge thing!  many also had their ports removed!

Well you know this is a Microstock discussion, so if I didn't see it, then it didn't happen?  ;)

Thanks for explaining, I might not have been active on the forum or wasn't paying attention or being a Senior I forgot. LOL Thank you for refreshing the time and circumstances.

No I don't remember Scott, or some uprising defending Rinder (that's odd in itself) or 50 people being banned. Sounds pretty much like this Scott (if it's true) had a personal melt down and before being let go, a little bit of narcissistic anger and a boatload of revenge. Or maybe it was his way of insuring he'd be let go, by scuttling the ship and jumping overboard. Whatever it all sounds rude and mean spirited. OK plain stupid and senseless covers it.

I remember Vincent who was decent and tried. He left on his own. He started in 2012. I'll guess that he replaced Scott?

Now back to NOW. Did anyone actually have their account closed as a contributor, in 2020, for what they posted on the forums? I know some people disabled and had lost images or couldn't enable them again. SS didn't initiate that. And who could ever know what software flaws could create a blocked account after it was disabled?

I've heard many contributors were banned by Shutterstock last year when they changed the royalty structure. 

I heard that no one was banned and the number was not "many" if any, possibly one and he disabled his own account. The rest of your leading questions are based on the false assumption that you invented.

Lets try again, @Blvdone, who was actually banned? Maybe then we could find out why, if they know? Should be easy if it was many people?

Or is the whole post just a troll?
