I just want to share some ideas I have about this forum, in order to make us, the contributors, stronger together. This forum is great, and the Fotolia D-day is a great thing, many thanks to you that are doing these things for all of us.
1.   Important news like the one about DPC, Depositphotos/Shotshop, Yay streaming etc needs to be spread fast. I suggest a newsletter that contributors might sign up to, to get big news, even if they do not want to be members of this group or if they do not check this forum often. If we all spread the word about that newsletter, we might reach a lot of contributors. The newsletter should not be sent often, only for big and important news.
2.   It would be great if we together could classify the agencies according to the extent they might be regarded as doing fair trade, and make a top list. Regarding commission rates to contributors and how they treat us in general etc. Would be a great help to new contributors. A way to compile all the experiences so often expressed in this forum, to a more concentrated form. Maybe a new kind of poll, about how fair-trade each agency is.
3.   Maybe we should have some kind of yearly award, to the agency or agencies that are the most appreciated among us contributors, which should more have to do with how fair trade they are, not how much they sell.
The suggestions above are just some ideas in order to start a discussion on how we may get stronger together. What do you think?
