In the wake of recent changes limits downloads. Is there any hope to see significant changes in the IStock Dictionary?

 


I often confronted with the fact that the dictionary does not distinguish nuances. F.e. "sly" only means "conspiracy" here, but i think there are a little bit more meanings of this word. It`s very difficult to find proper synonym in IStock Dictionary. Especially given the fact that the dictionary is hidden to contributors. Now it looks like you are playing in sea battle.


 

Am I right?

Quite honestly, I haven't a clue what you're talking about but I am going to guess that it's something to do with the Controlled Vocabulary or CV that iStock uses, so I shall move this to the keywording and search forum, where hopefully someone smarter than I will be able to answer your question, if you had a question.

The iStock "Dictionary" aka the Controlled Vocabulary or CV is constantly changing. We have thousands of terms that have nuances. When we are missing a term or have an existing one that needs better synonyms, feel free to suggest ideas/changes in the KW Request post or sitemail myself or Keywords. You are also welcome to post content in this forum if you can't find the right keywords for your files and the community will have loads of suggestions.

Thanks. I`m not experienced in IStock forum structure and terms yet. Concerning to suggestions of new keywords I got a complete answer. But is there any way to look at CV in some kind of structured overall view for contributors? I mean in alphabet or in categories like: places, emotions, colors, clothing, cities, countries and etc.

The CV does have a structure but we don't post it as it is massive as you can imagine. If you are unsure about the quality of keywords on your files, feel free to post some content here for keyword critique.
