Hi Linda,
When we are going to see another sudden wave of sales at Yaymicro? :)
Best regards,
Ivan

Hi Linda,

That sounds good... 

I have an additional small question for you...  Have you taken over a bunch of editors from Crestock?  The reason I'm asking is that I have recently had a bunch of rejections for "poor editing" !  Basically that's fine, but all upoloaded images are in fact approved by editors on several top and mid tier agencies... And selling as well... 

Thanks

high growth in sales in 2010 already more than doubled from 2009

the only problem is that 0 * 2 is still zero (at least for me)

I am getting a few sales on the main yaymicro site and the 3rd party sales have been good.  As it is one of the easiest site to use for contributors, I will keep uploading.

Hi Bjorn, 

I joined yesterday and submitted a few illustrations.  Do you mind telling me roughly how long reviews take?  I want to submit the rest but I'm holding off incase there's some technical hicup with the first batch.

YayBjorn, Linda - YayMicro
Pity that you closed your forums but I hope that it is not permanent shutdown. I believe that every stock agency should have its own forum. If for nothing else than just as a kind of public addition to the private support, where can be things discussed aloud publicly. Hopefully you will enhance your anti-spam system and bring the forum back.

Please also note that after your forum shutdown all your externaly cached forum links (such as those from google, etc.) are now pointing to not very user-friendly page:
Not Found - The requested URL /read.php was not found on this server. ...
Without any (click-able) way to go to your main site or to any part of your site.
Probably some nice 404 page or redirect would do better there I think.

Fixed, thanks for the tip.

I don't get why anybody should close a forum for spambots (if that's the real reason, of course). There are some good captchas around and if forum access would be limited to contributors with at least 5 images or buyers with at least 1 purchase, there would be no spambots at all. Surrendering to an independent forum where YAY has no control over (and where YAYosceptics can post too) might not be a very good business decision.

Hi!

We've decided to close the forum while we decide what to do (as you can read more about at the top of this thread). After 2-3 years there wasn't much activity, although we had a group of loyal, friendly photographers discussing and encouraging each other. Hopefully they'll continue their discussions here, in our blog etc. We'll try out this option for some weeks, and then decide if we'll fix the forum, or continue without.

Personally, I don't see any problem with an independent forum. The same people could post the same stuff at our forum as at MSG, as we don't sensor our contributors.  Of course, there might be a bit more skeptics here at MSG than at our internal forum, but we don't mind. Criticism is valuable and appreciated! (Ref. your post about our search (http://www.microstockgroup.com/yaymicro/introducing-myself
), where we'll hopefully discover a design or technical bug. Fixing this will improve the overall quality of our site).

Cheers, Linda
