I've placed only the name of the site, no links.
You care about TOS? You know... F#CK it!
Yeah, yeah. I'm in, I am disabling on 15-21. But I am not ready to F#CK the TOS yet. I prefer to quit by my own will, then get banned. And there's a lot of people like me. You setting them up. If you want to keep the line 4, add a warning.

I disabled my portfolio May 31/June 1 and have left my portfolio name and message alone.

If anyone wants to find my work they can google my name and the other agency sites will show up, so there's no need to direct anyone there. I am putting plugs for the other agencies into the tweets about #BoycottShutterstock, but that's it.

Arguably, a series of empty portfolio pages - a ghost town of names with no portfolios - might be an even more potent message. No one likes to eat in an empty restaurant - it feels weird; licensing images on a site where content from your lightbox isn't there any more and there are bunches of empty portfolio pages sends a loud and clear message to buyers.

I've already disabled my portfolio.
But it's not for a week, it's for an indefinite time (at least two months if nothing changes, then I'll see what to do - at least that's my state of mind for now. I'm extremely angry, but when I calm down I might have a different point of view).

I don't think deactivating the portfolio for just one week will have a big impact on Shutterstock.
The financial impact will be almost zero if a very large majority don't do it. And I highly doubt this will happen (sorry but with age I have less and less confidence in humans).
And the moral impact will be even less because these people (Shutterstock) have no morals!

Moreover by reading the different forums and social media, I realize that a large part of the contributors don't even know what's going on.

But I understand very well that many contributors don't have the chance to deactivate their portfolio for more than a week.
That's why we, those of us who can do it, have to make an extra effort, for them.

I'm in. 44000 images portfolio. Videos (2000) are already disabled and will stay that way.

I've got some reports from Russian community that opting out currently unavailable.
Quote: Sorry, there was an issue saving your latest changes. Please try again.

There is a suggestion to strike today, because fat ones could remove this option in nearest future. What do you think?

If they deactivate these buttons, it will not be possible to reactivate the portfolios :D

I just tried to enable my videos, everything went fine, didn't show any errors or anything. I disabled them right back.

Stock images deactivated. Stock videos will be deactivated later this week. Both heading for full deletion and account deactivation.

Hahaha, I will stay in ss because I need money. 8)

What money? You do realise that you'll take a huge paycut

Sell 200 files at 10 cents = $20

At the miserable rates they are paying it would be no loss

Funny thing happened. I joined that Stock Submiters Coalition facebook group, and asked Shelma1, when she's planning to disable her vectors, since she's some kind of leader there. She  banned me from the group.

I guess she won't join the action, she prefers others to do it for her.  Hypocrisy at it's finest.

It's clear you only wanted to join to abuse me, since you immediately came here to do just that. Jake has posted a note there asking people to volunteer. So far he has had one volunteerme. You want to help? Email him and volunteer. But there's no reason for you to be a member of a group taking positive action if your only goal is to be negative and abusive.

How is "So when are you planing to disable your vectors" abusive and negative? It's a simple question, and the anwser was ban. I call that abuse of a power and Stan Pawlovsky-kind-of behaviour.

He could've at least added a link to his Shutterstock portfolio so we can all admire his unique top quality imagery and vast library of clips!

I present you the master himself:

Some people, pfff no words...
