... if and when they sell, they bring in more money than selling the jpeg of the same image.
Many people seem to make this mistake. It is true for credit sales, but not for subscriptions. You'll get $0.35 for a RAW just the same as a JPG when it is level 0-2. The flip side, though, is that for me a RAW sale is often accompanied by a jpg sale as well - in that sense you can double the sale even for subs (plus net 2 sales in terms of counting towards higher levels).
Again, not exactly. Unless a certain overcrowded subject on our database really stands out, most likely it will be refused. One turnround "could" be collages/sets/collections, but even these are subject to other inspection criteria, such as composition, concept and techcnical execution. Simultaneously, it's important not to forget that thousands of non-sold images are currently being removed (4+ years), which means that earlier examples will not be pin-pointed. On the other hand, it's very important to keep in mind that even those that have been sold, were reviewed and approved under old and different criteria.
