I think there might be something wrong with your files, try contacting CR with the file numbers. Once some of my files got corrupted (or went missing) and I had to upload again.

I doubt there is anything wrong with your files...it just takes a very long time here at iStock to get files through inspection compared to other agencies. Slow and steady is the theme here. For non-exclusives, that can be anywhere from 6 weeks to 2+ months...all the best in 2013! Keep on shootin'...

I have some videos in queue from July still.
One of them has already made me a signifcant amount of money elsewhere. iStock's loss, I guess. I've sent two support requests and both times the response basically told me that they will be reviewed soon.
I also have many from the beginning of November.

It's a dreamjob, if you are an inspector... and if there are just few of them, even better (for them). Just make a quick calculation of the pay they earn from your works. Just one wideo sold for 150 bucks, of which you get only 19 bucks. If they sell JUST 100 a day, it's a win. I can tell that are other expenses them to pay too, but... can't fool me with the simple calculation ^^ I had high hopes for sales, but it only bring me costs whatever I go shoot. If it's not a loss of time, than there is electricity, people I used or things I had to buy to get something shoot.

Many exclusive video are beeing approved. We non-exclusive are not, takes too much time ! Why ? I don'T know ! I don't have much video uploaded but I'd like to see them beeing inspected too !
