Well, since you asked...kookietees said:please let us know what you think.
This is a good point. Are you officially licensed to sell Rolling Stones t-shirts and James Brown and Ron Jeremy?jdr8271 said:Also, alot of the shirts on your site are copyrighted. Unless you bought officially licensed t-shirts, you are breaking the law.
While I agree that it's common to give sites an 'edgy' feel, I personally don't feel it's a good idea. If you take it far enough (like t-shirt hell) it can work, but it's hard to find the balance.kookietees said:For example, your comments regarding our attitude towards customers...have you SEEN other t-shirt websites? Are we allowed to have a personality? How about having a sense of humor? I guess not...
To be sure I'm not a trademark lawyer, and that was the part I was least confident about.kookietees said:Another example...our name. We have an established business license and of course took the correct steps to make sure our name was unique. You're right - we have nothing to worry about on that front. Besides, I searched for "Kookai" on Google - it's in the U.K.
They're not minor errors. One is a minor error, but by the time you have that many of them it's a massive problem. Each individual problem is easy to change, but again by the time you have that many of them it takes effort to fix. If they are so easy why were they there in the first place? Because it's not that easy. You more or less need to start your website again from scratch.kookietees said:HOWEVER, those are minor errors common to a new web designer and are also easy to change.
I resent being called unprofessional.kookietees said:That is simply all I asked for - NOT to have some arrogant, unprofessional know-it-all take a free for all at my website. You were simply rude.
Could have, but not necessarily should have.Rodney said:
That was the very first thing I said. So when I say it it's rude, but when someone else says it it's a good point?Rodney said:Quote: Originally Posted by jdr8271 Also, alot of the shirts on your site are copyrighted.

We can't allow unlicensed or copyright infringed work on the forums.
Trust me, I agree with you. At the same time, it is possible to give an honest critique without being as harsh. It's not as easy, but it's possible.Solmu said:If people are posting actual feedback requests (and not ads disguised as them) they should find honesty useful. Most of the time we're all too busy playing nicey-nicey to actually give any useful critiques.
See now you've gone and broke that rule too.(besides, I thought the first rule of T-shirt forums was "1. Do Not Talk about T-shirt Forums.")
I never said what you said was rudeThat was the very first thing I said. So when I say it it's rude, but when someone else says it it's a good point?
I have a friend that produced a small show "off-off" broadway back in the 90s. She got slammed in the Village Voice. While she was a little hurt at the review she was elated to get the press.TrueNorthGear said:If Solmu's response helped drive traffic and even sales to the site, then maybe we should all be so lucky to receive such passionate reviews.
