Hmm, they are collections of people with the only and unique goal to make the most possible money in the less possible time.
They are called shareholders

Not really sure where this is going... Shareholders don't get to decide how the earning table design looks like.

Or what new pay scheme is going to be tested on us. I'm a shareholder of a number of stocks and they don't ask me much except about what the board should do. Certainly now how to market or run the business.

Time to stop blaming web design, the search, reviews, spam, or falling sales on shareholders. IT people don't just change things, they are asked to make changes.

The cause is management incompetence in the big tower.

I was wondering why you are not upset with the most of the new changes at SS! Now I know...

Can you explain what that means. I don't understand how investing in a railroad or airline makes someone like SS changes. Why would he like that?

The cynic in me thinks this has been implemented on purpose to cause a smokesreen

Yes, it certainly does make you wonder.  The old one allowed you to see daily earnings of all types on a single page, and now it takes multiple clicks to get the same information.  There was no problem with the old version and no clamoring for improvements so why go to the bother of changing it unless there are ulterior motives.  It's terrible that we have all become so cynical.
when all's said an done we still know what sold, when and the resulting $ - I prefer this to what getty tells us

... and pretty much means I wont be checking that info anymore. I wonder if that's the idea?
I guess it is. That's probably also why they started hiding unsold images from the catalog manager.

"Smokescreen" hits the nail on its head - regarding their timing as well. I don't think it's a coincidence that the new pricing plans were announced (almost) at the same time.

yeah, they obviously read this forum and disabled the old urls. just another case of bullying the contributor. oh look they found another way to see the old format, lets remove it.

Looks like microstock sites are going through a major BS. The new earning report is crap, the app is not working either properly. I wish they ALL close down and we can have a fresh start where actually we get paid something for the photos not ridiculous pennies. Even the highest level at SS is a slap in the face. For these prices they should accept photos taken with $100 cameras.

I would pay a dollar or two per month for some service with good statistics about my portfolio.

I see unsold images in catalog manager. Nothing hiding.

I don't see them when you go to the stats page in the catalog manager I think this is a serious flaw. I also can't figure out how to remove images from sets I don't remember how you used to do it, but I remember you could.

Mark an image in a set, then a trash can icon appears. Click on that.

I have done that, it even pops up a dialogue box about deleting it, but then it is still there. I suppose I'll try in some other browsers eventually when I feel up for dealing with the captchas.

When you tick the box in the upper right, a trash can appears along the bottom of the image. Click and it's gone.

Now the page changed, only sold images show for earnings and other two can't be selected anymore. But this is all in process and new email shows more changes and updates. We should be a little calmer about a few day change that's going away in a few more?

I got that one too - looks like an improvement so hope to see it live soon.

Has anyone tried to write Jon Oringer on twitter or facebook about new earning table design or whatever? What was his answer? I personally don't have accounts on twitter or facebook.
It looks like shutterstock is more concerned about Executive Order on immigration than about contributer needs. Yet Executive Order on immigration may affect the same people shutterstock does not care about as contributors. Just for show.

I may or may not like the new table when it comes out but to be honest its no big deal really  ....I guess you can discuss it on the forum.

Just got access to the new dashboard.  My initial impression is that it looks good and is an improvement - it will take a little getting used to but I like it.

Can't stand it. For god's sake stop "fixing" things that aren't broken and bring back followers, similars that make sense and images from the same artist that have some relevance to the current search.

I don't care about the dashboard.
Is there any way to see all sales of a certain day on one page sorted by oldest uploaded on the top (like it used to be) ?

Looks like they have too much time there in the Empire State Building or too many people hired who have to do something - even unimportant. Why did they even touch it ? It should be the bottom of they priority list (it worked just fine and was better than it is now) given there are so many bugs, image spamming etc.
