I starting uploading about 2 weeks, and am now halfway. so now I decide it would be a good time to look around the site :):)

beyond the fact I have had 3 x $5 sales, does this site seem weird to anyone else. seems to me like it was designed by a committee (in that it is trying to do everything, but really doesn't do anything well).  And some really odd stuff. 

pricing is set (in my case $5) but this is regardless of size, small = $5, large = $5.  I cant think of a reason why? why would you buy a small if it is the same price.  Why not be like FP and say fixed price = one size or cheaper for smaller.

maximum image size is 3000 x 2300 anything bigger than that is downsized.  So as soon as a designer needs a big image, they have to go to another site and there goes the customer.

an image that is smaller than 3000 x 2300. say 3000 x 2000  is downsized to 1600 x 1200 ??? thats a huge difference. why on earth do they do this??

I upload from work, if I download more than 500mb in a day, the system sends me an email saying that someone may have my password / I've been naughty / I downloaded a lot etc etc.  No big deal because uploading doesn't count (and work doesn't care) but each day I upload to snap (I do 100 at a time) I get the email saying I downloaded 800mb etc from snap. seems weird.

it drops iptc on my graphics, photos are fine but rendered stuff isn't, I wonder if it is the size?

I know its still beta, but they dont have a forum, and this was 20 mins of looking....
