A question for ALAMY re Measures


Recommended Posts

The company is probably in full crisis management mode over the rebilling debacle / fiasco / scandal (delete as you deem appropriate) so fixing Measures is likely a low priority at the moment. I can't see the rebilling issue being as limited as has been suggested, and it probably requires work from the IT crowd.

 

This sounds quite realistic. Cutting the licence fees the way they did was a bad idea, we should have told them!! Wait a minute...

Most likely. Then to resolve both the billing and measures issues before the month closes is likely pushing it. Perhaps by Xmas?

No. The date is changing but the activity data is not. I’m guessing that with a portfolio of 10 images you dont get a lot of activity so you wouldn’t notice the discrepancy.

 

 

that's only OP's posting account (i guess it is allowed by Alamy), real portfolio is probably bigger

Yep, that contributor probably has the largest collection of images here outside of an agency. You haven't been around long enough to know who it is.

Not had a licence since 27th last month. I'm blaming measures for hiding them. 😁

I have not had a license in all of September, either. Except the cancellation, resale for same price and smaller credit to me from the mid-June sale. My only activity. Funny that one came through measures just fine.

Alamy could send this reassuring message, for example,
 

Hi all, 

 

We're aware of the issue and have raised it with our IT team - we hope to have it fixed as soon as possible for you. 

 

Kind regards, 

Alamy

 

 i presume they still hope. 🦄

While waiting with no updates I have 25 reportage images covering topical issues supposedly on sale but not visible to potential customers. This is crazy. Not only is this affecting our potential revenue but also Alamy’s, yet they appear not to be bothered.

agree that's a much bigger issue.

Hi All

 

We are currently experiencing some ongoing technical issues with Alamy Measures due to a large amount of data processing on our servers. Our IT team are working on fixing this as soon as possible but we apologise for the inconvenience caused.

 

In addition to this, from the 30th of Sept, there will be some technical backend changes to the site which means we're expecting the recorded zooms in measures to be reduced by about 20% - this will be across the board. We anticipate this reduction in the recording of data to be in place for no longer than 3 months, after which it will return to normal levels. This is purely a technical requirement whilst essential upgrades are implemented through the site and will not actually affect zooms or sales.

 

Thanks,

Alamy
