  1. Given that the so-called 'novel use' sales coming through these day in no way what we were led to believe they would be when the scheme started -

    $1.62 for use in a government magazine with a circulation of 250,000, 'in perpetuity'!; advertising use on commercial travel websites etc -

    and that many of us thought that the scheme had been discontinued a long time ago anyway, could we perhaps, as a friendly gesture, be given a one-off chance to opt out of it without having to wait until April?

    Especially as after after Feb we will be getting 40% of nothing rather than 50% of nothing.

    The end-of-month 'surge', of UK newspaper on-line  and print usages being reported,  happens on the last two or three days...which this month should be the 29/30/31 of January......

    Without going into detail, how's you month going so far? - I need to hear someone is doing well.

    It's really helpful to read your advices about keywords.

    I thought I need to somehow complete all 50 keywords to make my pictures discoverable.

    What I didn't know is that I can put few words together to describe the pictures more precisely.

    Optimising discoverability takes 90% of upload times.

    If I ignore that and add all the directly relevant keywords (who, doing what, why, where, when), I'll win a lot of time.

    IGNORE THE GREEN BAR.

    Add the keywords you think are relevant - don't add anything just to make up numbers.

    The concept of 'optimising' is one of Alamy's biggest mistakes ever. Ignore it.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for finding that one - those thirty minutes in the departure lounge weren't entirely wasted.

    Oh, nothing negative aimed at you - just a good example of the ridiculous situation - though having thoroughly investigated your allegation regarding the New Zealand cricket team, I have been unable to come with anything more than circumstantial evidence.

    I've logged in here about 8 times in the past few months, and only had to do the CAPTCHA tango on one occasion, and that was a few weeks ago . . . obviously not everyone affected equally for some reason. I blame Brexit, MAGA, and the New Zealand cricket team.

    If it's so important, why can we sometimes get in without it? 

    If it isn't essential, why have it at all?
