  1. Images with "Lorem Ipsum" text rejected

    I was thinking the same thing as Sari but now, if that page is not a dominant element, you could select it and blur out the text to unreadable. Just a thought.
  2. I just wanted to say the same but I didn't dare.
  3. If you can afford another $200 you could buy a used Nikon D3100 or D3200, see here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B003ZYF3LO/ref=dp_olp_all_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=all It is good enough to start with and learn but I would suggest to buy a 35 mm lens for it: https://www.amazon.com/Nikon-AF-S-NIKKOR-Focus-Cameras/dp/B001S2PPT0/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1516112954&sr=1-2&keywords=Nikon+35mm+F%2F1.8G+AF-S+DX
  4. amazing drop in sales

    I hope so, hope dies last.
  5. amazing drop in sales

    I was thinking about $100/ day with that portfolio and probably the highest ranking. Now I don't expect things to get better when I see long time contributors with such a portfolio to earn pennies.
  6. microstock.top

    When did this happen? I visited the site about 3-4 days ago and I didn't see anything like that.
  7. microstock.top

    I don't know about that but I know that some of these top portfolios are full of spam, with thousands of identical images but we are not allowed to speak about this either.

  9. @ grop, You should report a Bitcoin scam at http://bitcoinwhoswho.com/. too. Just paste the BTC address in the search box and on the result page there is a report button.
  10. OH, COME ON!!!....

    Or, he meant that he is here, at $499,40 for 4 days, not at SS. That would explain being impatient. @Aranami, congratulations for passing to the next level! Great portfolio.
  11. Unacceptable keyword removed

    The new system does that too, on step two: after approval I went to edit my keywords in catalog manager. For an image that is all about workers building the roof of a cabin, the keyword roofing was finally accepted but not the keyword building. Also, the keyword outdoors, initially accepted, was now rejected as redundant. I also added the keyword "building" to a flowers image ( just to test) and it was accepted, so my previous theory with the "ing" ending words being banned proves to be untrue. So we can spam with irrelevant keywords as much as we please but we can't have our most relevant keywords accepted. Good job SS!
  12. I already posted this to contributor experience but maybe this is the right place to post it: Upon upload, image/video, in some cases a notification window slides in at the bottom of the page as soon as I select an image saying "Unacceptable keywords removed". After just one second the notification vanishes without letting us know what was removed. I noticed that the uploader removes words ending in "ing" but not just verbs in present continuous but also nouns like "building", "roofing". It doesn't accept these words from the keyword suggestion either. Could somebody from SS please have a look and confirm if this is a bug. We should at least see what are the unacceptable keywords that were removed. Thank you.
  13. Unacceptable keyword removed

    I could try to recompose (shorten) the question but I don't know where to post it to bring it to SS's attention and not to be buried by other threads. Email takes too long. Edit: I posted it to technical issues too, maybe someone from SS will answer.
  14. Unacceptable keyword removed

    I just uploaded some new images to test this bug. My (partial) conclusion is that it deletes words ending in "ing" like your "flying" but also working, building, even when they are nouns like "building", "roofing". These were my most relevant keywords as the image is about workers building a log cabin which is a building. It doesn't accept them from the keyword suggestion either. There could be other words too because as I added new keywords and the keyword count was not changing. We should at least see what this machine deletes. I only used the word "building" once and it deleted it. This has to be fixed ASAP!
  15. Unacceptable keyword removed

    Thanks Urbazon, so you saw it too. It is just a flash and then it's gone. I wonder if it is clickable?
