Новость от DT для эксклюзивщиков:
"We're considering an update in rewarding the upload bonus for exclusive members, update which is supposed to become effective as of next week. The $0.20 will be awarded for the first 100 approved files, after which the value, quality and sale potential of the submitted content will be considered as criteria for awarding the bonus. If your portfolio exceeds 100 approved submissions, you will receive the bonus only if your download/image average is equal or higher than 0.1. This basically means that you also need to sell what you upload and have sales for at least 10% of your portfolio. There will be a daily check of the download/image rate and the bonus will be added or removed for your pending and future uploads. Note: this does not apply to already approved submissions for which you received the bonus.
Exclusivity is a long term partnership, we award incentives but also expect some level of serious commitment. Unfortunately the inventive program has been very much abused in the sense that we have seen contributors submitting thousands and thousands of images only to receive the $0.20 bonus. Needless to say these portfolios generate very few or no sales, which is demotivating for all parties involved, contributors, designers and agency. We want exclusive contributors to upload commercial images instead of uploading just for the bonus. This has also made the review process slower and more difficult and has determined us to establish harsher review criteria. Once the new upload bonus policy is online, we plan to reconsider the review process and be more indulgent when it comes to similarity for instance.
This update will bring major improvement in the long term as the level of selectiveness is expected to increase and we will all pay more attention to the market needs. The ultimate goal of the whole portfolio building process is to generate sales as these are the motivation and fuel that keep the community and the agency going. Most of our exclusive contributors will surely continue receiving the bonus based on their current download average and we hope everyone who opts for exclusivity will work towards receiving it since it will also mean better sales from designers.
Last but not least, we want your feedback on this planned update so feel free to join the discussion."
Короче говоря, будут платить бонус за загрузку только тем, кто имеет 10% и более продаж от общей загрузки.
