All those nobody stock contributors hate me.  LOL!!  Whatever. 
They got nothing better than ridiculing people.  Useless posters.
They've never started a meaningful thread/conversation.  All they do is to come in and ridicule people.  And then I strike back, they get upset like a little punk.  LMAO!!  Weak.

I think you've got a bit of a persecution complex.  You aren't attacked or ridiculed on the Shutterstock forum or here.
You don't seem to like people voicing an opinion different to yours and you are quite often disparaging others who do stock for different reasons to you ('nobody contributors'.)
If you're not careful you will get yourself banned here too and then you will lose your voice completely.
You need to remember that you are 8 months too late in kicking up about the Shutterstock payment changes so you're not likely to get sympathy now.
If you had actually joined in the campaign 8 months ago you would have seen that this forum was strong in protest with lots of 'meaningful threads' , not 'weak', as you say.

At least they don't start the same thread 100 times like you do and they don't rant at anybody who disagrees calling them names and attacking them. You're a flaming narcissist striking out at anybody who disagrees with you.

Just unlicensed my video and photo portfolio on Shutterstock (again).  Moved all my editorials to Pond5 exclusive account to get 60% royalty, not $3 on 4k video sale on Shutterstock video sub.  I don't know if it's a coincidence, but already having the best sales day of February on Adobe Stock today.  It's likely to become the best sales day of the year on Adobe Stock at this pace.  Feeling good.  You can always turn your portfolio back on after a month on Shutterstock to see what happens and if it's worth it.

on again off again... why? if you are that unsure of yourself then keep the images and videos on Shutterstock so you can feel the burn each and every time you make a sale that does not even cover the costs to power your computer to see if you made a sale or close your account and be thankful you don't support an operation like Shutterstock.

I'm free to do whatever I want to do.  And just in case Shutterstock change their way back to it was before, it's unwise to delete contents and close account.  I have 15,000 video clips and 6,000 photos.  It's stupid to upload and tag all over again just in case Shutterstock changes back to how they were.

You should remember this quote

"An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodilehoping it will eat him last. Sir Winston Churchill, Reader's Digest, December 1954.

Seriously do you think SS will ever change the system back?

I think thats why you keep making these announcements on their forum in the vain hope SS will actually say "whoa BLVDone has deleted their portfolio! Quick we better pay more!"

Buddy they aren't listening to you or any contributor the system they have now will never change back.

Your only choice is either take the hit or remove your portfolio.

There's plenty of idiots out there willing to take 10 cents or 1 cent to keep uploading their stuff.

So many good points, all in a row! + + + + + + of them.

Right, writing on the SS forum that they don't read, or someone else writing to management and wondering why he gets no reply? Really, did someone actually expect the CFO to answer an email?

In Case They Change?  ::)



There have been petitions, coalitions, protests, removals, complaints, forum icons there no 10c, never ending crying... and this one person thinks if he disables his portfolio, maybe SS will change?



OK you hater HodagMedia on Shutterstock forum.  You should work on your photo skill rather than wasting your time posting craps you stupid redneck MFer.

In a nutshell... your posts are whiny, repetitive, and boring.

So back to the topic, video sales abruptly stopped on shutterstock for over a month now. Maybe they are selling but shutterstock isn't crediting the contributor's account with the sale. Nothing off-limits for this company anymore.

I'm just going to ignore the trash talk that some people throw at others, and move on.

Just a reminder of the low class character of this person.

Just ignore him, he's always starting arguments and posting nonsense. Was banned from SS forums, so he came here to stir up crap.

There always a problem of low sales in the beginning of the year. Wait 1 or 2 months, if your situation doesn't improve stop working with them.

Thanks for your insights. Thats exactly what Ive been thinking. Sales are slow at the beginning of the year. Since stock sales highly fluctuates from month to month, its irrelevant to react to one specific month. Its best to observe sales over a couple of month before reaching any kind of conclusion. Last year I had a few low sales month in which I could have said this is the end then the following two months were my best months.

Also I believe different kind of customers can be active at different times of the year. Thus, sales in January are unlikely to be representative to sales throughout the year.
