My worst start to the year since 2016.
Not only on SS but on all sites.
We'll see.....

I feel the same way. The only outlier is Adobe Stock.

I think some companies canceled their stock subscription plans at the end of the year to save money.

Many smaller companies are struggling right now, so let's hope for a semblance of normalcy later in the year.

So far this month SS is my number 5 agency.  Fading to irrelevance, unfortunately.

The sad part is that I'm already at level 4 but doesn't seem to make a difference.

The reality is the wealthy are just stealing our money, it is the same old story down the ages, here in the UK we had the 17 & 18th century Mill Owners who would cut their workers wages, while claiming poverty and yet they all lived in large houses with servants.

Shutterstock are really no different, here is the quote from their original announcement last year:- 'We are making this adjustment in order to reflect changes in the market for creative content, help to create fair opportunities for all our contributors, and reward performance with greater earnings potential.' - Which is all just rhetoric.

I realised a few years back, that as soon as they bought outside shareholders on board, the writing was on the wall; until the capitalist system is changed to bar these so called 'investors' from enterprises that operate as collectives, which in my opinion is exactly what Microstock is, then the wealthy will continue to farm contributors.

I think Shutterstock is finished and we are likely to see a number of challengers in the forthcoming years, it's good to see Adobe selling at a decent price, which just puts the lie to Shutterstocks reason.

Maybe so, what's the other one? "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
 
History Doesn't Repeat Itself, but It Often Rhymes Mark Twain.

History repeats itself, " first as tragedy, second as farce " - Karl Marx (a slight misquote)

Good! Great minds...

I'd say you are more or less precisely correct.

There's a quote from someone, or found in the Bible to support any possible agenda or argument. (if you twist it hard enough)

You realise a few years after they bought outside shareholders on board, that as soon as they bought outside shareholders on board, the writing was on the wall?

Told you so: "The writing is on the wall"

A bizarre and somewhat disturbing passage happens mid-way through the book of Daniel. During a party, thrown by the grandson of King Nebuchadnezzar, a large hand appears and inscribes four words on the wall.

These four words written on the wall declare the end of the Babylonian Empire and the oncoming invasion from the Medo-Persians that very night.


Another detail for those who want to start up with blaming the shareholders, the boards and the fact that SS is a corporation. Which means in all cases a business, designed to make money for owners and investors.

All states require that corporations form a board of directors elected by shareholders, hold at least one annual meeting, and maintain meeting minutes that document topics discussed and actions taken.

I'm not sure how public these minutes are? I don't care. But someone could do more than make claims, or vague generalized attacks, and go see what actually happens at these meetings. I've been on boards, they are terribly boring and mostly about legal matters, budgets, or business functions, I've never heard a word about how to screw employees. Just costs, rent, expenses, income and how the investments of the company and the future are progressing.

Welcome to the world of the corporate kleptocracy. Senior management at SS is now cracking open their bottles of vintage champagne in expectation of their realization of multi-million dollar options bonuses because Q1 profits just went through the roof...our loss is their gain (bigly)!

Methinks the biggest pain I can inflict on them (and myself) is to delete my top 30 best-sellers and keep the rest of non-sellers to foul-up their servers! With every 10 cent dl, I begrudge them the light in their eyes and bank balance!
