  1. I'm wondering, with the new revamped site, is Alamy measures fully up to speed now also? And I'm all for change and positive ideas and designs, but have to agree that the green type is too in your face and distracting, I get the 'Go' for green, it just to fluorescent for me and needs toning down somewhat.
  2. Unfortunately Chris this is just the state of the stock industry right now, Image rates have been driven down by large rival stock libraries for over two decades, indeed, they aggressively tried buying up smaller stock agencies in the early 2000's trying to virtually monopolise the market, either that, or they would vastly undercut general stock rates to clients hopefully squeezing out the competition, indeed, I did here from a former agency where one particular well known agency would sell images virtually at a loss to force their competition out! Also during that time, RF became m
  3. Yes, that's been happening for a long time now with large publishing media groups, Alamy offer a picture package per month of so many images for a flat fee, and regardless of how the images are used, they are all paid out at the same rate of whatever has been agreed, it's pretty standard with all stock libraries.
  4. Yes I get that, once a thread has reached its peak and going around in circles, it's time to lock it, however if they had just been up front and made things clearer within the contract along with putting out a statement justifying the the commission changes, then there wouldn't have been a virtual 'War & Peace' 119 pages worth of posts. It's like the corporate team went into the pub after work one evening and drummed the contract changes up on a few beer mats and posted it out, then the forum is like their wives finding out the next day!
  5. I wouldn't say embarrassed, more like it was an easy cop out from answering lots of questions asking for the justification on commission changes! Easier to lock a thread, evade the main question than drum up some half hearted politicians response of which they contradicted themselves over many months ago!
  6. This exactly! For over a 118 pages Alamy have evaded an explanation to the commission cut without any answers, and we, as contributors to Alamy's profits deserve an answer (and not a politician's answer either please!)
  7. Of which have been discussed over and over, Alamy have come back and addressed the concerns quite clearly over the last few pages or so, If you are still unsure about anything else in the contract, then email them directly, that's all they are saying.
  8. To be fair, Alamy have make it very clear several times, that any questions queries should be directly emailed to them, they will address any concerns forthwith, it couldn't have been made any clearer really.
  9. My sales volume have hardly altered for me, ranging from an average 45-60 a month, but who knows how this will change in the future when 'exclusive' vanishes and everything becomes mainstream and we're all put into the same melting pot.
  10. A response from Corporate head office and shareholders on commission and contributor fairness ......
  11. Yes, i'm sure they will, just thought it was worth mentioning just incase it was overlooked
  12. Possibly, however, when i have refreshed my dashboard the alert at the top still says "A new contributor contract comes into force from the 1st of July 2021" Alamy need to amend everyones dashboard to fall in line with the 45 days extension to the existing contract that they have mentioned previously
  13. If your'e staying, then i'd hang fire until the 1st of July, otherwise changing exclusive material to non exclusive now will lose you 10% of any sales till the new contract starts
