Slowly climbing up, now around 81%

longest streak: 230

Longest streak 20, two caption rejections blew the chance of a streak far larger, but it's all part of the learning curve.
Sitting just below 90% acceptance which I am very happy with

Longest streak I could find quickly was 28 but I think I've had 40 (4 sets of 10 uploads) a few months ago.
I've recieved a LOT of training from the inspectors and continue to benefit from their scrutiny My lowest acceptainratio was 34.75 (thanks to deep meta!). My current is 79.67%. It's high enough that I feel free to experiment and submit those "might be really useful but pushing the boundries" shots. Some get through, some don't
@Youngvet: nice to see you doing so well!

^ Thanks Vala!
I'll admit that I was probably a persistent thorn in some inspectors' sides at first. The first time I saw my acceptance rate a month or so after being accepted I was somewhere below 20%. Sigh. Took a break for awhile to figure out some of what I was doing wrong. I still get it wrong, but I'm up to 79.35% now and my longest streak was 53.

Not to Jinx myself, but have had quite a few 100% lately with editorial files. Quite a few big batches all going through

It's important to bear in mind that 63.76% of statistics are made up on the spot!

Longest streak, hmm, not sure exactly but in August of 2009 I uploaded 127 images and only three were rejected. That was probably my best month for acceptances. Overall my current acceptance rate is 84.58%.

Acceptance notice???Does the notification email still exist?
Haven't got it for quite a few weeks (approved video files showed up automatically, but no chance for rescout). Only me?

Longest streak is about 40, and I've just hit 80.00% which was a goal I was aiming towards.

Update: My current streak is at 79 and still going (knock on wood, laminate and plastic). My acceptance rate is now 80.80
Update oct 5: still going...98 now. But I just did a bunch of halloween candy, so probably lose a few of those...

hi and welcome to the thing
mine is 84 or 85% and every month i try for 100% acceptance for that month....never achieved it yet, but its my target to aim for. i get long runs without rejects and then i get a bunch of them! mostly rejects are for lighting oh and just plain unsuitable for stock.....
Posted Wed Oct 3, 2012 6:04PM
My longest streak is only 30 images. For the life of me I can't process/upload a large batch of images without getting a "too similar to another image." That's my most common streak-killing rejection.
Posted Wed Oct 3, 2012 6:22PM
I rarely play safe. I challenge myself and iStock too often to have any long lasting streak. You know, things like cars, guitars, unusual lighting...
Posted Thu Oct 4, 2012 1:03PM
I have to admit I hate it when a file gets rejected and have been through all the usual phases all too often The last one was last week. I converted an image into B&W with Photoshop CS6. It looked pretty good to me until the inspector told me the truth: awful color banding and so on.... How I didn't see it myself is just beyond me... The colour one got into Vetta so no complaints there. Now I'm testing HDR EFex Pro 2 and it seems to be way better... The bottom line is: failing is good, failing is the best teacher out there. I just wish I didn't hate it so much

My best month was 108 accepted for no rejections but that wasn't my longest streak as I have two consecutive months with 81 and 93 so that is at least a 174 streak.
Posted Thu Oct 4, 2012 6:58PM
Sometimes I try some weird stuff and get all refused... but at leat I try.
when I do some real stuff i don't have rejection.
I'm still at 75%...
I probably got 20 files in a row... depending of what I upload.

I haven't received "notice for ... " emails for 5 continual months, but starting from September everything changed. Got it several for copyright issues... Still maintaining 81% acceptance rate though.
