  9. We have a "horse race" going on here! So please vote if you haven't yet! I love a close competition but we still have 5 days yet til the poll closes.
  10. I know it seems odd but Alamy treats Stockimo as a separate entity and wants to keep it that way. I don’t make the rules, just try to play by them.
