Congrats,Rob!  


I started out well, but the last quarter did me in.  77.7% of my goal of silver royalties.  Looks like we had similar RCs this year, jsteck.  We'll get there next year!  smile

Thanks Patty. We can do it!!

I hope we are going to run this race again this year .... smile

I added another sheet to the spreadsheet

I'll play again! I don't think I'll be anywhere near the top this year though!

Oh man, that's really too bad.  I really wish they had simply lowered the targets by 3-5% instead of just allowing people to stay at the same rate as the year before - seems more fair to me.  Have you contacted iStock to see if they'll make an exception?

No, wouldn't expect them to. I'm not whining, it is what it is. I also wish they had simply lowered the targets, but that's kind of a selfish wish. I'm glad that they helped some people.

Well done Rob, if I would have a better december, than I would also reach 200%, anyway that is still far from 35%. I would like to join also for 2013!

Beat last years RCs in November, just scraped to the next royalty level by 276 points...  too close for comfort!


Not at all sure I'll be able to maintain that level next year though...  we shall see.  I'll join the 2013 race too!

I need 220% to reach 30% so my upload queue is full - only way I can see to get there is more files.  My attempts at 'better files' either get rejected or don't sell, wish I had more of a buyers head!

Good luck with reaching your target for 2013


Rob given your work ethic I am sure you will be up near the top again!

Well done on beating last years RCs in November Gannet77. Good luck on maintaining the level.

It's the last day of January - who else wants to play this year?  Come on, you know you want to!! 

The link to the spreadsheet is in the OP so I'm hoping the people involved last year want to race again and that we can get a few new folks in as well!

Shocked but very pleased to be at the top after first month. I thought it was only cause I was updating daily and at the end of the month everyone else would suddenly overtake me!


Good luck everyone, my downloads have been very inconsistent through Jan so I am not sure there is any trend I can see other than I am doing twice as well as last Jan.


Ben is doing very well and I suspect he will take Rob's crown this year.
