Maybe it's kind of a reward for filling out the survey.

Something weird just happened. I had a file deactivation notice while I was out this evening (annoying, as it was a very good seller). When I got home I signed in to istock and suddenly I find I have 10 credits showing. I've never bought any credits. Has anyone else had this happen? Could the two be connected?

Never heard of it happening. What was the deactivated file?


It was this one.  Pity, I was fond of this one but I guess I understand the reason.  Not sure if I'm allowed to pimp it, but it can't be downloaded now and will be gone soon.

I wondered if it might be to do with the survey too, Tadej.

They can't ensure sales but they can give out free credits ... which you have to spend with them? It's like Australia Post last year, instead of giving Christmas bonuses gave employees gift vouchers ... for the Australia Post store.

Shame you can't use gift vouchers to buy a money order.

I was going to say I did the survey and I didn't get any credits.  Maybe its a new referral program thing.

It has nothing to do with the Survey, my little ray of sunshine. Lol. So mad all the time.

We sent some messaging to some of our Cash Sales buyers with 10 free credits. This would have probably been directed towards people who had never made a purchase with us previously using credits.

Cheer up, Dave.

Lobo, I don't think Dave is mad or even grumpy, just slightly cynical. I also think he is to busy having fun being a dad and stuff like that to waste too much time on the negative, at least that is the impression I got when I met him (but he could have turned into a bitter twisted husk of his former self).

However, I love the idea of sending out the free credits to cash buyers to get them to come back and buy some more images. Great marketing, but probably lost on Paula and Gary

I don't know Jo....can you spend them on your own images?  If so, that's free money for me. Yay!

Off to see Underground at my local cinema. Director and cast will be ther for Q&A. Also Julian's mum Christine. Meanwhile, I can hear the noise from the AGP F1 a few suburbs away. It's all happening here.

I have this week off to study, exam is Friday and Saturday.  So you have to entertain me while I'm lurking in my breaks.  Not too much though.  No major announcements or changes istock!  Not til Saturday!  *shakes fist at istock*  I was actually wanting to go to the lypse, but alas, it is a week before the 2nd half of my exam in May.  *sigh*  Would have been a nice way to relax afterwards, if it was afterwards.
