Welcome, new SS forum refugees!

So, I am joining the refugees and hopefully we can stay connected here (and have fun ofcourse !  ;D

Alexandre, Repelsteeltjece, great to see you here guys!


Are we MSG old-timers living through the "Invasion of the Shutterstockers"?  ???

You are indeed  8)

Thanks to 'Leaf'. Incidentally, does 'Leaf' post on the forum?

When 'Leaf' has something to say, 'Leaf' does indeed post on the forum.

Thanks Martha.  I just found him via the search facility.
I have been reading his (assumption there, 'he' could be a 'she') posts.
Interesting ... a lot of foresight was required I think to have set up this forum so long ago ...

I've never met 'Leaf,' but based on intuitive hunches gleaned from reading posts that referenced *he* and *him* and *his*, I assume that 'Leaf' is a person of the male persuasion.

I might be wrong about that, of course. One actually never can be 100% sure about such things today.  :-\

Yes, we apply and plead for refugee status on the grounds of compassion having just escaped a brutal dictatorship who persecuted his own people. Many of us have risked our lives to travel across open rough cyber seas in leaky digital boats to arrive at this beautiful and prosperous land called MSG. If MSG choose to deport us, we have nowhere to go.

This thread is starting to show all that was wrong with the SS forums.
People running other people and organizations down for no purpose other than to
build themselves up.
If the SS refugees are coming here to repeat what they did on SS forums then
I'm outta here.
The SS forums are dead and gone. Leave them that way.
It's a good time to start out on a positive note and go on from there.

You'll get no argument from most of us here. Many of us bailed out of SS 1.5 years ago and we gave the company an appropriate new name: SHITTERSTOCK.

I see no good reason to change that name now.

So, welcome, Shitterstockers!

To each his or her own.
I joined the Shutterstock forum on the 5th of January 2019 and quit the forum on December 2019.
So I don't consider myself a refugee.
Secondly, although I agree the SS forums were really sorry, and I mean really sorry you have to ask yourself
"who made them that way"?
Yes, I quit the SS forums but I have never quit on SS. It's still the finest (for me and a lot of stockers) stock agency around.
To each his or her own.
Good luck to yah and much success.

Looks like we're talking about two different things:

1. the Shutterstock/Shitterstock site as a place to do business and

2. the Shutterstock/Shitterstock forum as a place to bitch and moan about the terrible conditions there for contributors.

Some of us preferred not to put up with either. To each their own!

Calm down old fella. I was kind of joking and having a bit of fun in my post above playing on the description that we are refugees which is quite funny in itself.

This forum has its own defectors.  There used to be some really good artists here and they have since left, some of whom got in heated arguments, accusations flung at them, etc.  Lisa FX is a perfect example.  I had a couple of private message exchanges with her and she was/is quite a nice person. But she got crapped on here and left.  It happens.

Then why is your username still active? I will say, the one big difference here is that you don't have an administrator censoring your posts like over at SS.  You can pretty much say what you want, but don't expect some posts to go unchallenged. And every forum, this one, a drone forum, etc. all have varying personalities and the vast majority of people react to posts in different ways. You will not get a forum where everyone agrees with you and it's kumbaya all day long.  If you don't like the human element of a forum you are free to leave, but nobody is going to silence you like over at SS unless you cross the line with forum rules, which are pretty lax here.

You need to stay, it could be like Rome burning down and you could be a spectator?

Although that means, I'll have to revive the Duck Thread over here? That was one of the all time classics.

This is too negative. Think of the extensive fun topics such as Best SS friends and mates Club, The Hummer Thread Vol.2!!!, already metioned Duckphoto. Instructive topics like Photo Examples or Good Rule or Technique Application, Help for the New Contributor
And... unjustified complaints  like about focus also receive an explanation of what is wrong with the photo and how it can be improved.

I just avoided one topic. That was about Corona. That didn't get any better at some point. But I never encountered any problems.
Well on the neat Alamy forum, as I wrote in another topic. I never went there again after a few visits.

Before 7th Oct there was no aggression whatsoever on this thread.

It is at this point exactly that the 'running other people and organizations down' starts.

Hopefully now the thread can be continued in the calm, polite manner it followed before that.

How are sales going on SS for you?
Rubbish for me  :(
I don't, however, blame SS for that as I don't have enough downloads for the old payment scheme to have made much of a difference.
It's numbers that are very low for me.

I can't complain. With 500-600 DLs a month, Shutter is still first for me in terms of revenue, followed by Adobe and Alamy.

When I log in now on the forum I end up on my own Shutterstock site.  :)

With apologies to Monty Python

The SS forum is no more! It has ceased to be! It's expired and gone to meet its maker! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! It's kicked the bucket, shuffled off its mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible!! It is an ex-forum!!

I hope not for it's maker Jon Oringer.  ;D Because he's still alive. But other than that it's a nice eulogy. I'm a Monty Python fan

I had a link to Shutterstockforum on my website in the Shutterstock section. ( http://www.tuin-thijs.com/indexengels.htm ) I just changed it now with a link to Microstock. Hopefully it will last longer.
