  1. Don't Worry, Be Happy! Spider cannibalism is the act of a spider consuming all or part of another individual of the same species as food. In the majority of cases a female spider kills and eats a male before, during, or after copulation. Cases in which males eat females are rare.
  2. Yes that does deserve a well done. I don't usually look and I wouldn't have, if you didn't. Thanks for pointing out that successful collection. The often repeating answer to "Why do I only get a dime?" 🤑 But at level 4 at least some will change into 12,14,15,17,19¢
  3. Apparently @Milo J has blocked Blvdone? 😉 I mean if someone was looking for polite, bland and no bickering? Salt you say? I know people who add salt before they taste the food. What's with that, habit or no taste. Now that's my kind of humor... tasteless.
  4. Sure thing @Alexandre Rotenberg very authentic breakfast, cold pizza, morning after.
  5. Brady, Laurin, Phil, Scorsby, Richard, Mihai, Joe, ??? So many!
  6. That we do and I've sure learned from that too. I enjoy the Q&A I don't care much for the constant whining. 😉
  7. I have had one OD in the 2 1/2 years that I looked back, that wasn't $2.70 and that's before the new system. Since then 2020 Low $1.74 High $3.75 but starting this month I had a 45c and a 10c? Yeah, something changed... this month! Right, most agencies do not show us the actual amount paid or details. If anyone wants to know what someone paid, just do the math? 🤑 $.45 at 15% the buyer paid $3.00 for the image. Multiple the credit we get by 6.66 and then you know what the buyer paid. (I left it at 666 for a reason)
  8. He did make it to 10,000 images, if you count video and photos. No he didn't have 10,000 photos by the end of the year. Joe also had more photos but had a setback when they removed some similars. Yes and I'm one who disagreed. Although I do follow the Plop and Shoot system, ALA Farbled, and personally, I often only upload one best from a shoot and no more. I like that. 👍 This is not about Joe, it's about plans or philosophy or ways people try to beat the system. There are others who insist every image Must Have 50 Words or you won't get downloads. Some think, only shoot mo
  9. Yes,it matters because settings don't tell the whole story. If he's using a cell phone or a pocket camera, or something that has a smallish sensor and fixed lens, there's little he can do to make them better through magic and editing. Of course I must agree, downsize is a good answer. I'm not saying that someone needs to have a big camera and fancy lens, to make it in Microstock, but they must have an adequate camera and lens or the task becomes less and less likely to succeed. So the camera (sensor) and lens do matter for trying to understand why the finished product has so many problems
  10. You got it! 👍 Not advertised plans, at lower prices, that are only for high volume customers. We still get the percentage of each download for the level we are at. Based on what they actually pay.
  11. I never looked close at those. RX100 VII and I'll assume the RX100 II what a nice little super zoom, pocket camera. I've really liked newer Sony cameras for years now, but I'm already married to Canon. 😉 Impressive: https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sony-cyber-shot-dsc-rx100-vii-review#:~:text= Key Specifications 1 20MP 1"-type stacked-CMOS,or down by 90°) 7 Intervalometer More
