But this thread is about general actions on StockXpert and by StockXpert. If new uploads doesn't have visits or downloads because customers don't like them...whats the matter? Do pictures what customers are interested in. That's not the problem of StockXpert.

True.  It is not the problem of StockXpert.  Maybe photographers are not wanted.  I think that's the point.

very funny...this thread is about StockXpert-problems. As you can see on the right side StockXpert just changed position with FT. And all i said is: it doesn't seems like a problem at StockXpert, to me.
But, if this thread is just for moaning and victims...i'm sorry, my intention was just to give a statement out of my view.
If you want to bath in your tears...please continue, don't pay regard to me.

you may think so, but you're not selling photographs. renders, vectors, illustrations, everything that is not photo outsells photographs by far on almost every of the sites, StockXpert included. So, non-photographic artists stats are not representatives, I'm afraid. Most photogs are unhappy with declining sales at StockXpert. I have not had a decent pay per download sale for two months now, only rare 1.5$ at most, mostly they are one subscription a day and they are originating from JIU more than from StockXpert, it will take me months till a next payout now, and I used to have one a month. My former bestsellers have suddenly stopped selling at all. My new images don't get views. That's what we're all talking about, and trying to figure out how to solve or, better yet, make someone responsible for it there solve it.

It is not because customers don't like them. It is because the customers are not getting to see them at all.

So you try to find out why StockXpert hides your photos from their customers and you will told me they don't do so with any kind of illustration?
My first upload at StockXpert was a photo, takes some hours to review and had 19 views since 26 May.....that doesn't seemed to me like hiding fotos away from customers.

@ clivia
I had a look at your images at StockXpert, there's a photo from 24may with 5 downloads, what are we talking about?

I for one am glad that you are having good sales at StockXpert, it gives hope, however many contributors are feeling the pinch, including myself. StockXpert seems to be on autopilot at the moment. It would be interesting to hear how you have been doing there in a few months. Keep on uploading and may the $$$ roll in.

The whole point of the '0 views' thread on StockXpert is that some contributors get views on new images as always, and some get absolutely none.   This change seems to have happened in February.   If you read the thread you'll see that the StockXpert Admin acknowledged that there was a problem, and said it would be fixed. Apparently it has never been fixed.

werkmann, maybe you don't read very well. or have not read the whole situation here.
we were once like you, submit our images and all approved within hours. no , correct that, within the hour. we had sales and regular views.
then something went strange, and some of us have new images not reviewed in weeks, while others had new images approved but have almost no views , other than the views of each others.

no one here is crying in our tears. we all had a good spell with StockXpert, and we only want to ask each other if they are feeling the same pinch.

it's all very nice of you to come in here to glorify yourself and your big sales at Stockxpert at this moment. but as i said before to you in one other thread elsewhere, we were there before too.

or do you know read enough, other than what is in front of you?

Come on Puravida, why are you so hard on werkmann??  

He has been at StockXpert for a whole month now.  Surely this gives him enough experience to lecture the rest of us who have only been there for mere years.  ;)

I do not understand why people are taking it so personal? I kind of started it when I pointed out that he is doing generated images and it's different. I also did not feel insulted when he said that we are just wussies here. We all come here to went when we are upset about agencies. For a newbie it may seem like constant ranting and complaining. I can see that.

mela, no one is insulting nobody. it's just that when you're a gifted psychic and you have supernatural powers to see into the future, you can be very sensitive to what commoners say about you  ;)

Reminds me a bit of the way my wife reacts when she is angry.  If I try to be agreeable ... it gets worse.    :D

Warren, if you stopped calling your sweetie a "wide angel" or "wet" http://www.microstockgroup.com/general-photography-discussion/sailing-on-a-schooner/?PHPSESSID=4ff8a6015be3bd1f09f4f97638b38ada, she might be a little less "angry" with you .

also, just because this guy reminds you of your wife, I hope that doesn't mean you're bringing him along on your schooner dream voyage, are you?  remember 2's a company, 3's a crowd ! :)

Getting back to StockXpert for a moment - does anyone have any idea what's going on there?

Very hard to guess what's going on when there is such a variety of experiences.  Many are having no views or sales on new images, some are having views and good sales, and some are apparently experiencing a surge in sales. 

With no discernable pattern I doubt we will get to the bottom of it.

Talk about weird experiences on StockXpert, this morning I deleted about 8 photos I had pending there for about ten days (just sitting there), well this afternoon I was feeling a little more tolerant with them so I uploaded 5 of the same pictures I had deleted, guess what, they were review in about an hour and half an hour later they already had some views...is this some kind of sick game StockXpert and Getty are playing with us?  ???...because it makes absolutely no sense at all.

mine mine, ole friend, so it's alive again  ;)
well, i'll hang tight for now. not going to get all excited to re-upload my new images that was held in limbo for weeks. i'd rather concentrate on continuing to increase my port with the sites that have been stable and good with me than play catch with StockXpert. all this is too much for me to handle...too much weird happenings going on there.

but it's good to know "something" is alive.  glad for you mm !

It seems like new images are getting routed to 2 different groups.  One reviews quickly, one does not.  Depending on which group your images go to, they get indexed diferently in the database.  In one case the indexing is bad - in some way - resulting in no views.

So, you either go first class, or you're bumped from the flight.

It's ridiculous to leave contributors speculating like this and wasting their time uploading images that aren't going anywhere.  I quit weeks ago, but I'd resume if they'd make just one single sensible statement about what's going on and what the current status of the business is.

If this is how Getty is going to manage their acquisitions, it's a bad sign.
