  1. Oh flippin' heck wendy! Hope it isn't as bad as expected. Stay safe!
  2. Be careful what you wish for. I used to like snow until this happened 😜😂. A nice little sprinkling like yours works well for me now 😁
  3. Ugh, I didn't notice! Well spotted Firn. Helping thieves is not my idea of a good day
  4. Wow, amazing Sheila! I've never had a dl for that sort of figure, I got excited over a $11.25 the other day LOL.
  5. We can't say any more than what the rejection reason tells you without seeing the description you used. Except to say that sometimes you can pick up hidden special characters when you copy/paste, so be careful of that. Just had a quick look at your port. Your descriptions are too short/brief and don't describe what is in the image properly. Don't tell people what they can use the image for or it's resolution etc. Instead, describe what you can see. Imagine you are describing what you can see to a blind person. The image titled "An artwork of a man and woman" could be anything. They
  6. HodagMedia is right, you can't do it. SS is not a storage system so you have to backup your own images. Downloading your own images is actually against the TOS, so you can't even buy your own images without risking having your port and account closed.
  7. I just quickly scanned the replies so sorry if I'm repeating what has already been said. The limits (presuming nothing has changed) are 100 videos and 500 images per 7 day period. It says wait 24 hours before trying to submit more but that only works if you have been submitting daily and a few dropped off from 7 days ago, then you can fill that gap upto the limit again. If you submitted 500 images on 1 day you'll have to wait the full 7 days before you can submit again. Hope that makes sense.
  8. What is the reason you want to do this? There might be a better way. It wouldn't be a good idea to do this unless there was no other option. You would have to completely terminate your account, then you would have to get consent from SS to open a new account. This will take time and may not be approved. You can't have more than one account without consent from SS . Account termination is different from account closure, just closing the account means it is available to be reopened, so as I understand it, opening another account would be against their TOS as you'd be creating a second
  9. What about them? There will be plenty of people who reach level 2 or even 3 in January. Going by past years I'll be in level 2 before the end of January, just nearer the end than the beginning. And lots of people earn way more than me, I know some of them. So level 3 in January is not impossible either. Unfortunately most people on the forum these days don't earn much, so it gives a distorted view of what is good or bad regarding number of downloads and subsequent earnings.
  10. Only one dl for me today, didn't expect much though to be fair. January has never been a good month for me so it might take some time to move to level 2, especially with a holiday and weekend right at the start! Hopefully things will pick up as we move on, though I doubt I'll ever make it back to level 5 😕
  11. Haha, serves me right for speed reading! I know the worlds gone mad but I was thinking it couldn't have gone that mad surely 😂 Phew!
  12. We had a bit of snow that melted quickly and today a hard frost, so the worst I've had to deal with so far is breaking a bit of ice on the duck pond. Jeff, that is a lot of snow!! Sari, loooooving the videos. It looks like you have a little winter paradise there Wendy, you have snow?!?! Happy New Year everyone. Hopefully we will all get over tomorrows reset quickly. And hopefully 2021 will be a better year in everyway for us all. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
  13. Aww, congrats on moving up a level, but as already said, sadly you'll be back to level 1 along with the rest of us tomorrow.
  14. Adding Trump is OK, but because he's in it it would need to be submitted as an editorial illustration. https://www.shutterstock.com/contributorsupport/articles/en_US/kbat02/Editorial-Illustrations-Submission-guidelines?q=editorial+illustration&l=en_US&fs=Search&pn=1
  15. I'm so sorry for your loss ((((((((hugs))))))) RIP little Simba
  16. Happy Christmas everyone! 🎄🎈🎁⛄🎅🎄
  17. So reference images are a way of you legally saying to SS that you own the copyright to it, that you haven't copied the image from someone else's work, be that a photo/photos or artwork/artworks or otherwise, which would be their copyright not yours and therefore criminal to sell. Or free or public domain which they don't accept either. If they think this is a possibility they will ask for a RI, adding a background will make no difference. If you use any reference images add them, but they have to be yours. If you didn't use RI's (you used your imagination) but they are asking for them,
  18. I was set to see a couple of friends outside for Christmas eve lunch, but in the last few hours the rules have changed due to a new strain running rampant, so xmas plans have to be scrapped. Zoom is looking like the only option to meet anyone now. I normally cook xmas dinner and have relatives at my house for xmas day. It's going to be very different without them this year. Oh, there is always Baileys to buddy up with I guess! I'll be eating xmas food through to Easter 😣
  19. Back at ya Annie! Happy Christmas and New year to all. Lets hope 2021 is better for everyone in every way.
  20. I'd try the Financial Ombudsman Service https://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk/consumers Good luck.
  21. This is a quote from Kate on the forum which states "The current limit to how much content you can submit is 100 videos and 500 images per 7 day period." I think there is a note when you submit content stating the limit, but as I'll never reach those heady heights I have never paid attention to it
  22. I'm guessing you have a Polish account then. Yes, it will keep defaulting back to Polish when you click through one of your own links. I don't think you can do anything about that now. You could contact support and see if they can change your account to US. I think it's a long shot though. Even if they can do it, it would also mean being paid in dollars rather than your current currency. Annoying, but I think you will have to learn to live with this one.
