Rules for how to use my stock

I am experiencing "death by success"

...Right now I have 615 notes in my in-box here. If I were to go someplace with high speed internet and sit there for 3 solid days, I could probably clear my in-box. By the time I'm done typing this, I'll probably be at 620 notes. And, because I don't respond fast enough, some of you (it's OK, I'm not complaining) note me over at my art account, or Email me directly.

I don't know what to do. :( I've removed the "please note me" part of my "how to use my stock" and I gave up long ago and stopped following the tags on my top page.

Anyhow, something's got to break. I can't make reviewing art-works my full time job and I don't want to stop posting stock. Besides, I'm at critical mass in that department - even if I stop posting stock, I'll still get buried. I love seeing all the stuff you guys are creating. But it's scary the way my in-box keeps filling every time I load my page...

Love you all,
  • Mood: Affection
  • Listening to: Pink Floyd: The Wall
  • Reading: When it all clicks
  • Watching: My computer; duh.
  • Eating: coffee
  • Drinking: coffee

Thanks a lot!
Sorry about the blank comment... I wanted to say that I completely understand why you have so much to do. You are an amazing artist and provide us with such wonderful photos to use that it is nearly impossible not to use them! I hope you'll find some way to not overwork yourself.
Thank you for everything you do! :hug:

This is my newest one using your stock: Autumn Fairy
Hope you like :)
Hello sorry if I write this here, but I can not find the rules. I wish I could use this to create a beautiful photo cover book is intended commercial purpose, can I do it? I thought I read some time ago that the use was free as long as you came credited, but I can not find the rules. Am I wrong? The photo that I would use is this:… thank you very much =)

Ha! Critical mass for you was achieved sometime ago. Since you get about 5K hits to your page per day! That is ludicrous! Too bad you can't make .01 cents per view ;) Love your stuff. You were my early inspiration!

Don't stress too much about it and please, for heaven's sake don't stop adding stock!  Your note in this journal is sufficient, I mean the worst case scenario is you just empty your inbox, and do a general thank you to everyone and when and if you have time, you look at the links people have provided on your stock.  And go from there.
