People aren't being lazy. Step back and listen to the people better qualified to know what's going on, even if you are the Braveheart of grade school bog roll. Your methods are entirely invalid, providing self selecting data for your spreadsheet only lends legitimacy to a very flawed method and will give a very skewed impression of what is going on.

Especially now that you have annoyed so many people that the only ones that will fill out your form will be ones that agree with you.

When you were showing an average of 20/30% drop for level 5 from subjects you were saying, to paraphrase, "well I have only seen a drop of 5%, that feels more accurate to me". I mean what the heck.

Dude, show your rpd then. You had an equal chance as mine to be included in the spreadsheet. My rpd calculations that accurately reflect the -% in earnings were made public. Yours were not. I'm certainly not the one hiding something here. If you want to make me understand, use the 3rd grade math suggested in that post and go prove your point. Your number of "votes" is determined only by your level. I think this forum needs to serve it's purpose and be trully informational.

I get that you try to be professional about this.
I don't get why you are acting like a crusader though trying to convince people things are not as bad as it seems while we're looking at half our normal income. I don't think that'll work mate.
Nothing against you, do keep at it but I doubt you will change a lot of minds :D

Take care!

I was trying to convince everyone to measure how much bad it is, never trying to convince anyone whether this is good or bad, because only the January reset alone makes it bad enough. But I received everyone's response by now, I'm done in here. Good luck to everyone with their peeing against the wind tactics.

Good luck and be watchful if the wind changes direction as all those thousands "peeing against the wind" might splash you if you stayed on the wrong place.

seanh!!  same here Level-5 and deleted my port of close to 8000 files and 1200 videos..the problem as I see it is that once this business start there is no way back it just keeps going on and on and the point of remaining is just worthless! you accept this and the next step is images free of charge( which is already going on anyway).
The present SS don't give a * about anything they see stolen images they dont care the Tech side is useless the uploading process and reviewing is terrible.
They certainly show us a perfect way how to NOT run a company!

He's deleting all his images!
410,000 pictures a few days ago, 120,000 now!!!

I think it just takes time until they are gradually removed from search indexing?

Deleting a portfolio of 400,000 images, one image at a time, is certainly not feasible in a few days... Especially since he will certainly have other things to do.

He might have assistants.

I deleted mine one by one, took about 15 minutes to do 100. When I deleted 100 in the morning, it even took until the end of the day for the server to refresh and show the right number.

My images are gone from SS. I just wanted to say to everyone keep up the pressure, companies bank on it dying out but where ever you can on social media give them some love. I just commented on an SS ad on FB. Everyone is doing great! Keep in mind post people give up or quit right before success.

Unfortunately, I think he is the only one of big producers to do so.

At a ryhthm of 100 every 15 minutes it would take you 42 days to erase 400,000 photos... Considering that you never stop

Yes, he probably has a few assistants, or he just asked Shutterstock to do the job, which they probably do as slowly as possible

I don't need you or your wonky stats to tell me how bad my sales are. All I have to do is look at my sales and the 60% plus decline.

Disabling means that they are not available for licensing/sales but are still kept on the servers, right? So once you re-enable it in the acciun t settings, they should normally come back all, correct?

Not that I'm planning to re-enable my port anytime soon, just for information.

Correct. I did that in 2011 when I left iStock exclusivity & returned to being an independent. All my old accounts were still there, including Shutterstock

Hmm... maybe when you reactivate your portfolio, as a punishment, you'll have to start again from level 1...

(I'm kidding... but you never know with these little %$#$%)

Or maybe, if you reactivate the portfolio, these are treated as fresh images and all the popular images are now nowhere available in SS top pages.

They don't, can say this from experience a few months back. Like deactivation, it takes some time for the images to reappear but they regain their places in search
