Well someone had to start this thread, now let the screaming begin. So far I like it and no they don't have to ask us before they change their site.

It uses the computer vision technology for keyword suggestions, which I have a feeling is not an improvement, but from what we've seen a good joke. The suggestions are rolling in, besides where to stick it and something about never seeing the Sun. Best one is showing all the data so we don't need to scroll to see all about a submission. Work in progress.

Did most of us get over the front page and map change enough to enjoy the new look? I think the new editor is going to be easier and faster, once they get it sorted out better. Now about the whole site, submission lags, ftp errors, upload errors and sales. Things that actually matter?

First, they should have fixed all those things before rolling this out. Putting something new on a platform that is broken is a recipe for failure.

Second, they should have got it all sorted out before rolling that out. Part of that sorting out involves testing, including beta testing and focus groups with real users.

If it is as an exciting improvement as the front page change was I don't think I'll be very happy with it.

I just submitted a couple of files and everything looks the same to me - did I misunderstand what page you were referring to or is this rolling out in phases. I'm on the US West Coast

In phases. It looks very different. Some things are better, some aren't. Still getting used to it and it looks like they are actively improving it

In on the west coast also and I'm not seeing the new format either - thank goodness.

Problems pasting keywords in video submission. I can paste them but it says there are zero.

Where before all was very compact, now you have to scroll down to choose your releases or tick "Editorial"
What an exciting improvement!!

It's worse than adobe. Twice as slow as before, with multiple clicks and scrolls to see anything, a lot of stuff hidden, you have to guess where to click to find it, no indication any longer if a file is a vector (for those of us who submit vectors). Clearly the IT guys thought it would be cool to add popup windows, hidden access to important features, lots of scrolling, etc., and did not consult a single contributor about whether any of it made sense.

Meanwhile the problems they've had for many months have not been solved. I still have to upload everything four times because most of the files disappear upon uploading, still get the same stupid error messages about not uploading a matching jpg, and now when there's an error you get a popup that just tells you there's an error but not what the error is...you have to click the popup to see the error and then click it again to get back to editing. No more seeing everything at a glance, you have to click a stupid button to edit more than one image at a time...I think these guys were high when creating this and thought of it as a video game, with secret hidden chambers and levels and surprises around every corner, mwaaa ha ha haaaaa.

It's even more exciting.

The submit button doesn't work for me.

It seems when you have a keyword with wrong spelling that is actually not wrong you have to click on it and choose "it is correct".

I submitted a batch yesterday morning and it was the same old system.  If SS goes to an iStock-style nuisance system then with the current low sales that will pretty much make it too much trouble to bother.  Maybe that is their strategy - make it such a hassle to upload that only the most dedicated will continue.  In that case the IT guys probably did exactly what they were intending.

I'm hoping it isn't as bad as everyone is saying but am dreading to try.

In overall the process is much slower now...

So I do not think it was a positive change  :(

I'm happy to see that I can see more that 40 images per page, before, that bothered me; but anyway, I prefer old system.

By the way, did someone noticed that now the images are given in a single category and not two as before?

Can no longer edit after submission. The old editor is still there, and you can make changes, but the changes never appear. So you can forget trying to change things afterwards in order to get words accepted (the new system doesn't seem to accept British spelling, some city names, or slang words like "xmas," for example).

When the system detects a misspelling word (or what system interprets as misspelling word) it is marked with red, so you need to select it and chose "This is correct"; but once you chose "This is correct" for this word you can keep using this word without any future advice about misspelling ... thats amazing so you can create your own dictionary; the problem is that this new dictionary is "deleted" after you get out of the submitted section and if you go again you will get the misspelling advice again...

I see absolutely no difference. Maybe is regional?

They're rolling it out gradually. Lucky us in the northeastern U.S. got hit with it first.

So each one of their tens of thousands of contributors now has to do the work of creating their own dictionary, instead of their IT department simply not fuhcking things up.

Does it finally read footage metadata? (Like all other sites do)
