What are well covered subjects.

Recently I got a refused image message, the reason: a well covered subjet in DT.
I am not complaining, at all, Is not the first, and for sure will not be the last.
But I'vee been wondering about the refusal reasons, specially the well covered subject one. I agree when there are technical or quality problems with the image, there are no subjective, are what they are. But what happens when the reason is less clear, when is more relative to the person who is reviewing or to a false perception based on numbers wich are subjet of interpretation...

Here is what I've been wondering:

is it more important the quantity of the images or the sales of an image?
what means a well covered subjet in th database? thousands of images with hardly any sale at all? or subjets with images selling a lot?

I would echo the comments. I get about 80% refused for being well covered even if they aren't when you do a search.

I just put them elsewhere and they sell well so no worries. The market is not well covered just DT. As people said just move on.

Yeah, I know what you mean ... we all do. I call it business practice, some things you just got to do.

I guess this is also a well covered subject too. I don't care my images being refused, really, it's just a tremendous server space wasted!!! Thanks.
