I haven't received an email, but what I saw in the SS forum and a Facebook group looked like something written by a non-English speaker (or something written in another language and run through Google translate).

I can't imagine anyone in New York writing something that mangled, so it's either a scam of some sort or perhaps a manager in another country trying to do something local for contributors in his/her country.

The divide and rule part of the playbook.  Used it with BS takeover as well.

They've moved to stage 2.

Does that mean SS is already swirling around the toilet bowl?

Not really.  They'd have planned and modelled all of this months ago.  They're just going through the checklist.

My wife told me that she read on a Russian forum that some contributors had a contract, a real contract on paper, and that Shutterstock couldn't change it (so easily).
I don't know if it's true, but anything is possible...

The reported email doesn't make a lot of sense. It basically promises to keep people on current new tier percentage until January first which already the way the new scheme works.

As reported it is also in broken English.

My guess is Phishing scam not from SS where you open attache contract and get a virus.

It doesn't matter ther is no fix earnings in the contract. Contract basicly say they can change earnings per photo how ever and whenever they want.

This is not a general agreement on the Shutterstock site, but a "real" contract on a "real" piece of paper with "real" signatures .
You (and I, and others) can't know what kind of contract Shutterstock makes with certain contributors. Do you think that big stock studios like Africa Studio have the same contract as you?

It's fake rumor. Reason that some contributors don't get email of happiness is pretty simple.
They have glitchy email robot, or incomplete database of contributor emails.

I have two friend which not received this email.
