I wonder if this new arrangement will put SS into a firm second place in the Microstock poll results?

Their Google Play apps are being flooded with 5Stars reviews from India:

Amazing app

Beautiful app

Great app.

They permanently lost my trust in them, amazing how they turned out.
My favorite is "Fabulous, Fantabulous, Freedom" , also indian

Another brilliant move from our beloved Company:

They purchased newbielink:http://www.boycottshutterstock.com [nonactive] and redirected it to their main website.

Apparently they are screwing with us big time :)

They have purchased it a few years ago during the boycottFotolia campaign

This is from 6.5.2014 but it definitely shows they fear they might suffer something like the DPC boycott back then

Aded protest text into my SS profile tagline and the account got suspended really fast.

Just so you know. 

You can still see it from the link but on login it says suspended.

I suspect it's just the forum only.  Your images are still up.  And the that ban with time limit sounds very forum-like. But why can't you just try it?

My portfolio is still on but head shot and tagline are gone and on any my images my name is blurred but the link to portfolio page works  :)

For example...

SS I hope you are reading this post. Here is a way for you to save face on this bad PR move you have created. SS send out an e-mail and say after reconsidering our move to lower contributor rates we are putting this on hold for now. We will get a group our top SS contributors and work as a team to see how we can cut cost and make more revenue for SS corporation and the contributors. As you know SS is hurting for revenue during this Pandemic and we know as a team we can work through this...No this is just a thought I had (W.Scott McGill) but something like this would save face for SS and "We the Contributors".

I think he meant if you cannot try if you can log in to your account or not and it works or not, who else can?

But actually it's a good idea!
People who want to quit Shutterstock altogether should first just change their screen names to "Use Adobe Stock if you value creators"

I see they've blanked it out but the gallery URL still shows your user name

https://www.shutterstock.com/g/gordan

And a google search for gordan shows a result for your portfolio, so they can only "disappear" you so far.

Pretty pathetic and childish of them, IMO

In 2019 Shutterstock celebrated a payout milestone. June 1st 2020,  they plan to slash royalties for all contributors. More profits for SS, much less for SS contributors. Please rethink this bad PR decision SS. "We the Contributors" can work as a team with SS. It is not too late and make everyone happy with more revenues for all..

If anyone wants to do something with shutterstockboycott.com, just let me know. If someone built something all of us could visit...

Question , I think I know the answer. Is any SS contributor/s on the board of Directors of SS. I assume not... If so why . not . Without Contributors you have no SS. Most Corporations have 6-15 board members. SS needs Photographer Contributors on their board. I do assure you this bad revenue decision was voted yes by the SS board of Directors..

How pathetic, also the blurred name. It's crazy.
Can you still access the contributor homepage?
I think this looks like they are not going to change their minds, they don't care about the bad PR.
Regardless I am going to deactivate on june 1st.
