Hi Guys,


Aaaaargh!!!  Earlier this week, SV received my CD of photos but is refusing to accept them because of their cut off deadline of April 30th.

Why is SV is allowing uploads of photos to their website until midnight tonight but refuses to accept my CD of photos that arrived earlier this week??? 

I am really, really pissed!!!  >:(  >:(  >:(

In addition... it appears that KEEN will not be accepting everyone.  So if you have a SV portfolio... that does not mean it will be listed on KEEN.

Aaaaaaargh!!!!!

I think you mean Veer but I know what you mean...that stinks but realistically today is the cutoff date for uploads and they can't get a disk fully loaded by the transfer time, so I would guess that's it.  Can't you have them put your disk up on Veer tomorrow?  lol

Mantonino,

Yeah I know SV is becoming Veer...

But anyways... I am just sooo angry right now because the CDs were mailed out before they made the announcement.  It makes me mad that they didn't even update their website to mention that they would no longer be taking CD submissions.  Even today it says they are accepting CD submissions.

Aaaaaaargh!!! 

And the other thing that makes me angry is according to Ryan, not everyone who has a portfolio with SV is going to be accepted over at VEER. 

I have to wonder if it's even worth the bother to work with them.

Isn't there lots of time to apply after the fact? SV has been around for quite a while now, if it was a priority why not have these images up long ago?

It doesn't make a diff since you're new. Recent SV accounts are not moved to Veer.

Batman,

What is considered a "new" account?  I have been with them for over a year.

Which is a lot of time to have either have transfered your portfolio or have sent it in on CD.

Me too, I joined when they posted here on the forum to invite us, but they still said it's "a recent account". I don't know what would be NOT BE  considered "recent".

Hi Cricket -

Apologies for the frustration caused by the cutoff date.
As I mentioned on the phone earlier - we received your submission of 840 images yesterday afternoon, we're doing our best to get as much of it  as we can into the system for you tonight.

We saw an uptick in submissions via CD and DVD recently - those files were ahead of your batches in the queue (we process CD and DVD submissions in a first-in, first-out order).

You're also welcome to upload new submissions directly to the website until the upload system is cutoff.  The dev team will hold off by a few hours to give folks a bit of extra time -  the upload system will now go dark at 9am Seattle time, tomorrow the 1st (pushed back from 12:01am).

One clarification though - SnapVillage is transitioning into Veer, not Keen. 
Neither SnapVillage nor Veer have anything to do with Keen Images. 

Best,


- Brian

Hi Batman -

Just to clarify: we're evaluating all SnapVillage accounts for migration to Veer Marketplace. 
We are examining recently created accounts in the same way as all the rest, ensuring that the content and the contributor will be a good fit with Veer Marketplace.

One reason that could be causing confusion:  the most recently accounts (those created in mid-March through today) will be among the last batches reviewed.

To recap (I posted this as a comment on NiagaraGirl's blog last week):
http://niagarashooter.blogspot.com/2009/04/brian-from-snapvillage-responds.html

1) We've been reviewing all accounts and this process will be wrapped up soon. Existing Snap accounts are not automatically grandfathered in. Not all existing Snap accounts will be transferred but most will.

2) Now that weve almost reviewed all the accounts, contributors will be hearing from us by mid-May at the latest. Most people have not been informed yet of their account status in relation to being transferred to VMP.

3) We need to close down submissions on SnapVillage because once we freeze the SnapVillage collection, we will be able to efficiently extract and transfer SnapVillage imagery and accounts to Veer Marketplace.

We'll be in touch soon with more updates.  Let me know if you have any other questions.

Best,

- Brian
