  1. Judging by what I see here it seems that I made a good decision to deactivate my port.
  2. So long Shutterstock. I did make enough money to buy a few nice toys over the years so I’m thankful for that. But... 10 cents is much too low and insulting.
  3. Yup, time to leave. I have only a small amateur port, but 10 cents is basically theft.
  4. I keep getting rejections with the following reason; "An English translation is required for the non-English text that appears in this content. Please enter English translations in the title field." Since when do I need to translate Japanese place names into English? For example: Nanzenji Temple, or, Hyakusaiji Temple. Translating these names would make no sense and the customer would likely not understand the place they are looking at in the image. It's strange as other images with Japanese place names in the title are approved, but some are not. Is anyone else experiencing this?
  5. This thread used to be pages long by this time of month. A bit... actually very disconcerting.
  6. I've just stopped contributing for a while now...period. Sure my portfolio is a dime a dozen but some of my images used to be decent earners.
  7. RED ALERT!!!! RED ALERT!!!! I made money today!! The Shutterstock Kahunas better check the system to make sure it doesn't happen again. I'm worried I might make more money and that would be very bad.
  8. Thank you for your kind reply. I guess I will just put them up on my site and hope for the best. I never had any problem with submitting photos of castles here. Actually there is one pagoda in Kyoto that didn't get accepted but I resubmitted it with a note. It was accepted that time. You should try submitting your images again.
  9. I'm putting together a tear sheet for my work. Most of my work is published online. Is it okay to screen capture the web page and then put it on my website? Do I need permission from the people who used my images to do this? I just don't want to break any laws. Thank you for your help!
  10. I saw I had a .7 cent sale this morning and was pissed! I was just about to close my account here at SS and then I saw the reference to general announcements. Anyway, I'm still thinking to close my account. It's all subscriptions these days and nothing else.
  11. I just got a 26 cent SOD today. What is that all about? I don't want to hear "at least it's better than nothing" garbage. Seriously SS what are you doing?
  12. Wow DT is kicking SS's behind. Now that tells you something.
  13. Yeah looks great if you've never been there. You will understand right quick if you ever visit yourself. Or you might actually like it...who knows. I grew up in the country and then lived in Hawaii for 15 years so I'm spoiled. LOL!
