Today so far is one of my best days in a while. Site is up you just can't go to http://submit.shutterstock.com instead go to https://submit.shutterstock.com . Go ahead and log in and you will get the chain again as it brings you back to the standard http version of the site. change it once again to https:// and you are good to go and can check your stats.


Which just goes to show that the chain image is to keep contributors out until they have things sorted out.

I am seeing the opposite. The weekend is drastically down over normal and not one sale for 36 hours.
If they wanted to block people they would disable both URLs dont you think?

I think they switched over to a secure connection and the URLs havent been updated or the routing doesnt work. HTTP = unsecure HTTPS = secure

Maybe they want to get rid of it after having 30 million photos in their archives :-)

Here is an idea. They should accept new contributors only through BigStock and if they prove themselves let them smoothly transfer their portfolio to Shutterstock.

It's working for me right now using that method.

I have been with ss since 2007, and I have never seen such a massive breakdown before.
Good thing is that they inform us.
Bad thing is that I had a zero day.

Hello everyone,

Due to an unexpected outage last night, we have taken Shutterstocks contributor site offline to help improve load time for customer downloads.  We apologize for the inconvenience and are working to have to all operations back up as soon as possible.  Once the system is back up and running perfectly, we will inform you as soon as possible.  Your patience is appreciated.

For updates, follow @ShutterstockReq on Twitter or email us: [email protected].

Sincerely,
Anthony Correia
Director, Contributor Success

Put HTTPS:// in front of the URL and it will work, at least its working for me, still.

SS has stated that they disabled the contributor site to help speed things up on the buyer side. Seems counter-productive to circumvent the disabling, you're only making it harder for buyers to get to the site and get their images.

The https thing worked. I have regular Monday sales.

I just reach 3000 dollars and the site went down suddenly  >:(

You see? It really is unsustainable!

I think they will keep the majority out and they did not count on contributors finding a back door. I bet they are so happy you found a way in.

They have bigger things to worry about right now, the site just imploded. Time to pull out the Duct Tape and Baling Twine AGAIN.

deleted.

5 people came up with that workaround before me, but now its a problem?

That message about speeding up the buyer side, came just now. That was unknown to me when I repeated the workaround.

I have deleted the workaround, you might want to edit your comment too so that no one can see it.

Yes it is. I am moving elsewhere. They boast about all the millions of images and can not even get it to work properly. What a complete fiasco.

Check your own reply/quote again, and see that I didnt find the backdoor.

ok, enough on who, what or whom found the backdoor! Let's just concentrate on news that is coming from Shutter - I am taking images/processing them instead of worrying about this mishap- be productive instead of wondering or guessing...

Yes I realize you did not find the back door,  I was merely replying to your comment below and the fact that you are visiting the SS site.

By the way I don't buy their story about site traffic, I think it is more damage control for continued errors that they know will be visible.

@ShutterstockReq follow on Twitter for updates. Not that it's anything more than "soon" at least it leaves the SS servers out of it.

For anyone who wants to see the pages, without going to the trouble of pinging the SS servers, here's what we get currently on the contributor pages. Hosted off site.

Wasn't picking on you, just pointing out the problem. Doesn't matter who came up with it, you mentioned it and I was replying to it.
