I've had images approved in only minutes, way back in the day

But yay to inspectors, I can't believe how under control that Q is. Wish I had something to upload right now!

I´ve heard that non-exlusive members were moved to an old 486 backup server. The reliable IT is for exclusive members only

If that is the case between exclusive and nonexclusive I think its really unfair, simply because all exclusive members were once unexclusive too

istock needs to give newer members incentives to want to become exclusive, and putting them on a slower server and making their uploads take longer to be approved isn't exactly the way to do it.

That is if thats the case.

LOL You guys are nuts. I'm still one of those non-exclusive members, and I just had a couple of photos accepted in a day or two. So it's all good.

Subman : You cannot choose which inspector reviews your file. There are many good reasons why, so don't count on being able to do so in the future either.

Till about a year back, Istock had the policy of giving the full address of the inspector who rejected your photos. They stopped the process when goons started landing up on the Inspectors' doors every second day, and their life-insurance premiums went up.

Ignoring noise - $3

Aah, the good old days....
