Btw, this is part of the NEW COMMUNICATION protocol of the board.


Why introduce it without any explanations?

Great.


You really know how to communicate with your contributors.

it works with the price slider - set it down to ONE DOT and more exclusive files are shown!

Yes it shows all the Dollar Bin Files

Who on earth is running this place, making these decisions, not letting admin talk to us? Or are the all out planning the next 'Lypse?

I am fairly positive about this and hopefully this will all make sense with the new BM. An option to drop some files to the bottom price range would be a good perk for exclusives.

Wow. Obviously iStock no longer values exclusives. Has the midstock model failed?

This is surely just a bad mistake. The non-exclusive video files are slightly cheaper than the exclusive ones (excluding Vetta), but hardly enough to justify filtering out exclusive content. The HD720 prices are even the same. (17/27/85/95 compared to 20/30/85/98).


The Google thing was clealry a mistake as well - I hope that both are swiftly reversed with strong apologies, otherwise the consequences are obvious.

If buyers are looking for the cheapest files and move the slider to the botom, then all our exclusive content is removed from the search returns!

Seems like an serious bug. How long is it on like that ?


It filters out exclusive videos on 1 dot. And the price difference is like 2% ... Way to go (sarcasm)...

At first our (exclusive) images have been made more and more expensive. And now they are out of search ... and we (exclusives) have NO chance to bring it in again.
And all this happened without asking or even informing us. And you are asking what is so bad? This means a dramatic decrease in sales for all exclusives, much more dramatic than everything before.

Actually I think it might bring a dramatic increase in sales if all the non-exclusive files are left out of the higher searches. If the search data shows that few people use the bottom bar to search then we stand to make a lot more $$$

It's not possible to get rid of all the non exclusive images completely and still have normal exclusive. The Photo+ collection still shows on the second lowest tier.

No files are left out of a search unless a client decides to use the slider, they could choose to exclude the cheapest or the most expensive files.

It's not that the non exclusive files are visible only on the 1 point slider

But who will want to look at a search results without the cheapest files... and the independents are just as good as exclusives
