1. for me and for a lot of people sales are going more and more down. Used to be so alive and undisputed #1, but not even close anymore

2. reviewing is the absolute disaster

3. submitting vectors is a joke


Will SS continue this path and eventually become dead / dying agency, or will they change their current ways and become the #1 earner again?

in my case they refuse photo for similar content when photo is different !

they seem to be rejecting 95-100% of videos/images.

I suspect (not sure, but suspect) that the reviewers may have "friends" whom they are 100% approving everything for - but rejecting everything else so they can meet the "quota" set by their bosses (i.e., minimum 30% rejection rate).

I suspect that for whatever reason some contributors get a free pass and are waved through the system. I get reviewed to a high standard lately and any marginal images seem to get rejected...fair enough until I see the quality of some of the new content.
