I'm not sure if you've read ALL the posts here, but many of them are not about one specific site, but are posted to help others with running a t-shirt business.sorry, didn't realise. so whats the score? all the other posts seem to be talking about their own sites?
Point taken, and there will be some cleanup of that area in regards to shameless self promotion, but you are welcome to get feedback on your site.can i post pretending i want feed back as to my site construction etc?
I'll probably need to revise the mission statement for the site then to make it more clear.of course it was the idea that i might get to spread the word about my site that brought me here, i would think that is why alot of people visit this forum,
Agreed.the problem is when people start posting multiple across multiple subforums and reviving old threads to say 'oh you can get that at mysite.com' and such.
Actually, that's the plan is to ban all advertising. That's the whole pointtheonerich said:fighting a loosing battle i think!!!! the way i see, as long as nothing gets out of hand, there's nothing you can really do other than ban all advertising? as soon as you ask for advise and the response is "see how i did it here, or check my site" there is nothing you can do.
Everyone has a different opinion on things and not everyone is an expert Feel free to offer your own advice if you see something that doesn't seem right.you're right about bad press, but some of the sites don't need any help with that, there are a few really bad shirts floating about your site, and a fair bit of bad advice too.
I have no intention of acting like a "pri*k" as you call it, but I do hope to have a forum that is relatively free from spam and self promotion. I guess it's a lofty goal, but that's what I intend.in my experince, forums seem to police themselves most of the time. if you act like a pri*k most people will ignore you and the kind of people who log onto every forum they come across just to post an ad for their site rarely come back.
Don't forget seasoned professionals, t-shirt veterans, and marketing experts.all in all this site is providing possitive advice and you have a community of manufacturers, novice buisness men, designers. thats a good thing.
As I mentioned, folks are free to add a link to their business in their signature.if you start to ban individuals for mentioning their own business or a service they can provide, you'll loose the know how and people will look else where.
It's quite resolvable But you're right, if this conversation is to continue, it should be in the Feedback forum or via Private Message (which is where comments about the site/feedback should go in general).lets get back to shirts rather than this un-resolvable forum tennis!!!
