Submission problems shouldn’t affect content flow. It takes up to 7 days to review a submission which means we have a “buffer” of submitted files and whenever review team is available we go through them. So unless a submission problem is not fixed for 3-4 days it doesn’t affect content flow in any way.

Or contact support with specific details. They will check the item for potential faults.

May I ask why the need for Quicktime? I always use image sequences

No problem with that. If you read the rejection message again it says: “Video assets must be provided as image sequences or video files within a Quicktime MOV” so image sequences are fine as well.

I’m still amazed how someone digs up this 5 year old thread and give it a new life once every year. And by the way I’m 31, not 25 any more :D

I can assure you that review process or quality criteria doesn’t change whether there are hundreds of items or just few in the queue. Reviewers are working like usual and don’t reject quality items just because they are piling up in the queue. The only downside of being in the queue right now is that most likely approved items will get short front page exposure as there are lots of files being reviewed after the Christmas and New Year break.

Looks like Brian is working, but since he is mainly focusing on stock and MG categories chances are only updates or soft-rejected resubmissions of AE projects gets through. I’ll be back on Monday. Meanwhile enjoy the Christmas.

A guy who can’t afford more than 6100 monthly payment shouldn’t be buying a 1million home.

Monthly payment on mortgage shouldn’t exceed 30% of ones monthly earnings. Considering 6100 is 30% then his salary is ~21k a month which translates into 252k a year. The rule of easily affordable mortgage tells that one shouldn’t buy a home that costs more than twice his yearly income which is only half of the price this guy is willing to pay for his house. So he is already lookign for trouble buying a house that he can’t really afford.

next if he can’t afford to allocate more than 6100 a month he will first need to go homeless for 2 years because he will need to save for 15% down payment which is 150k

closing costs are roughly 3-4% which will make him go homeless for another 5-months to save up for.

the insurance is roughly 1.5% a year and property taxes are usually the same. So he will need to allocate additional 30k per year or 2500per month from the money he doesn’t have.

There is no one right answer. in some cases it makes sense to buy , in some – to rent. My point is that it’s impossible to say that renting is always bad and buying is good. it’s more like 50-50 with several benefits in each situation.

Anyway. this whole thing is an offtopic. If you decide to buy a house one day – shoot me your numbers. i’d love to look at your deal and give advice if i can.

From the surface it might seam no brainer that buying is always better than renting, but not for everyone. Owning real estate costs much more than the purchase price. Most ignore insurance, property taxes, maintenance, interest rate, closing costs. For example for a 30year 100k $ loan with a 5% rate buyer will pay roughly 95k in interest alone. If you can get rent below that 1% rate and the difference put aside in savings – after 30 Years of renting you’ll be able to buy a better house with all cash than someone who bought house 30 years ago with a loan and never rented.If you invest those saving with the same 5% return – in 30years you’ll be able to buy house twice the value with all cash. Besides average person moves once in 5-8 years. If you have to change your rental – it’s as easy as moving your stuff – if you need to sell your place every 8 years and buy a new one you’ll most likely loose several thousand on sale/purchase process and closing costs.

From someone who owns several real estate units this might seam that I’m not practicing what i preach. In fact next year i’m planing to move to a rented place and rent out my house as well.

Here’s the trick – only scenario when this doesn’t work is if the market is absolutely at the bottom, then purchasing now will give you the benefit of value rise. Also if you rent – try to find someone who is renting out the spare place because it just sits empty. Don’t rent from someone who is a professional investor landlord.
