but since Jared began to work with us on doing something about the site there has been an increase in activity. I'm seeing good tee designs getting 8+ likes regularly for the first time in about a year. I'm pretty excited

    yep. think so too - this place is not as dead as some want it to be. things seem to change for the better. hopefully some of the points with jared are getting developed soon.

    The site's only as dead as people make it be. More people get involved = more activity. I'm stoked to see where we go from here.

    hope more interactions happening again here, just like the old times.

    part of what has slowed this community has been instagram. A lot of artists and clothing companies used emptees/mintees as a nice social platform to get exposure and promote services or products. It's not needed quite as much anymore as someone can simply follow an IG account and get more information. This isn't the only forum to slow down a lot. Gig posters is a ghost town these days too. It's simply a format that needs updating.

    Absolutely. Drawlloween always brings the community together, at least for October. Making some positive changes to the site during that time would definitely pay off.

    Don't think the idea of an intern to post every single community-selected tee to our instagram account hasn't crossed my mind, by the way.

    Yessss!

    I'm going to submit some redesign images, but I think if everything was simplified, the bevel look was scrapped and the overall color palette was less competitive with the content...the site would look so much better.

    Same, but it sucks if you have to login 5 times to approve/reject t-shirts. This is a HUGE problem in my opinion.

    That is exactly what I suggested as well. Plain black and white/off white palette with the buttons simplified and less tags etc cluttering the pages. that's all it really needs!

    out of nowhere said:i still cannot believe how some t shirts are getting community selected and how some aren't?

    i can see alot of improvement but i still see alot of bs shirts getting selected and good shirts not

    Just came back to Mintees myself. Will stick around and see how it goes.
  • myohmy Design

    Do the stats on profiles function anymore? I've been using Mintees a lot more regularly and my stats section doesn't seem to function at all. In fact it seems to have me in negative numbers, do they count for anything?

    lets see whats happening in the next couple of months. Hope this takes a leap in Activity :)
