been rolling out new stuff lately, but we are looking to add more. i have some ideas, but i want to see if there is anything glaringly obvious i am missing.

not looking for minor bug fixes, but something that can be beneficial for everyone.

let us know!

    not sure if you want the site to head in this direction...just throwing out ideas....but what about notifications.

    when someone replies to your comment, when someone comments on your tee, etc.

    Agreed, notifications would be great.

    screen printing quote request form sent to promoted shops on Mintees
  • jared

    authenticate your facebook account to your mintees profile so you activity on the site posts to the Facebook stream.

    same with Twitter, opt-out option of course.

    yeah, that would probably tie in here somehow.

    Any thoughts on providing a DTG option?

    BOOM! Yes, it's in the works!

    edit: I'm fine tuning some stuff between DistrictLines.com and Mintees to make it as seamless as it can be. It's still a semi-manual process because you have to upload a transparent PNG file to make it color-adjustable.

    promoted talk posts
  • atomicchild

    maybe just a monthly mintees member interview....could be interesting and build the community...
  • atomicchild

    anything that would encourage merch companies and brands to make an account and find talent here would be a plus

    yeah, i've thought about this before. i think it would be cool to have people (artist, brand owners, etc.) do an AMA type of thing.
  • TRIBE

    An actual chat section might be cool especially if you could see the number of people in the chat from the navigation. And you could work with some Mintess artists to do cool things in there like process video chats, Q & A's , random stuff like that.

    I wanna pull a Madonna and drop the "Who is..." from my name so it can just be "Ryan C.", but it won't let me.....

    Like a group chat. I remember how awesome the AIM/tinychat was. It'd be cool to bring that back but have it part of the site. It could have video.

    Yeah, that would be cool... gigposters has it ;) (but noone ever uses it)
  • gurven

    it would be cool to click into this section to see all the comments/posts/whatever a person had made. Sometimes I cant find talk posts I (or someone else) commented on ages ago when I need to,



    Also the resources section is missing from there ^^
  • atomicchild

    a chat feature would rule....alot of us have chatted over the years already
  • Craig Robson

    guys... the promoted layer looks awesome, good call.
  • Sam Weinberg

    An envato-like marketplace where we can post our design resources for sale (with the ability to offer them as freebies, of course). Items like mockups, templates, brushes, textures, clipart, and other goodies. Could be a decent replacement for the resources section and could put some good money in both the members' and Mintees' pocket. Shop submissions would have to be approved by mods/minimods.

    Also, the ability for thread creators/tee submitters to see how many views their post gets would be nice.
  • Lmerrill

    Direct messaging through the site, to contact the people who don't add an email address.
  • Johnny Keko

    A simple 'latest comments' somewhere on the side or bottom. This invites users to engage even more in the talk section.

    Another request or more a question and I'm asking this as respectfully as I can but have you guys ever thought about a redesign? I know this site was designed in a very short time span, having said that, I believe you guys could do so much better.
  • N.Guenzler

    I wonder if a "buy now" feature for selling artwork would be good?

    Also you could do a reddit style system and have upvotes and downvotes?

    Amazing idea. A pay per download solution would be highly useful to me and I wouldn't mind paying a service fee off the top.

    Also simple...but the ability to see who liked your design by clicking on it. Shouldn't be too crazy.

    Agreed on the chat.

    Allow users to flag talk posts / resources as spam.

    An ability to prop users like a +1 dude is good to deal with and doesn't curse too much. (could also be used to show that user makes quality posts, shares good resources..is reliable..you get the idea)
  • Jake DL

    Don't know if it's been said yet, but being able to 'like' or '+1' peoples comments.
  • dobi

    some of the responses in here are going to make jared very happy.

    this thread is going to win rob or me a series of running bets.

    KEEP IT COMING, GUYS!
  • Matt Borchert

    Ohh, what about a featured member/brand of the month? Perhaps if someone just kicked out a bunch of crazy awesome work, cured cancer, or was just a generally neat dude or dudette?
  • chad manzo

    I don't know if anyone agrees with me, but when you click the "next" on a shirt design, would be awesome if maybe it would lead to the next design by the same designer/artist? As of now, when I do click "next", it just lines up the next tee in the queue.

    and probably artist portfolio pages? not just the "view all tees" page..I have trouble explaining the latter. need more caffeine.
  • Jandro

    atomicchild said:a chat feature would rule....alot of us have chatted over the years already

    this would rule.
  • Lmerrill

    I agree with chad. IF you're on a user profile and click on a tee, the next and previous buttons should link to that specific artist's pieces and not just throw you into the tees from everyone from the same date the original tee was posted.
  • Mattfacce

    Notifications, private messages and some sort of chat feature would rule. Also bring back being able to see who liked your designs like back in the emptees days.
  • Jason Carne

    That. Do that. Do it. I've mentioned it a buttload of times in suggestion threads but it never gets noticed. Knowing who actually likes your work and follows what you do was definitely a great feature of Emptees that is missing here.

    Also, notifications would be cool via tagging usernames maybe, also I second (or third?) the motion for a chat feature. Anything that promotes more interaction without being obnoxious is welcome.

    yes to all of this. It'd make the mintees experience much better if you could get notifications and @ users. I think it would engage more users as well to help them stick around longer.
  • atomicchild

    so basically can we just have a minteesbook hahaha
