So - the website is getting closer to a point where I can start adding moderators and other fun things. There are still bugs being found and what-not but I feel now is the time to legitimize what this website is more, what our rules are, and things like that. As usual, I am asking you all for your input.
These are just off the top of my head and open for feedback. I'm starting to get better tools to manage posts and stuff now and anticipate beginning to open the platform up more to more people.
General "Community" Mindset
First off - we aren't any other website so previous assumptions should be disregarded as we decide what we allow or don't allow, how we treat each other, and really the general "feel" of the website / how approachable it is.
Things from other communities that I would like to stay away from:
My goal with this website is several:
Boards, brands, fans, and communities:
I am going to get into my thoughts more on this in another post but there will be more than one type of moderator/board owner. I see one type helping me run the website and various shirtwascash boards, I see another being parternships between shirtposts and other brands (specifically stuff like people that stream on twitch) where we mostly run it but it's for their specific community, and I see another type allowing you to run your own board completely.
In short, let's say you run /b/food and create an awesome community submitting food type shirts. You grow it and the board evolves into its own cool standalone community separate from shirtwascash. My current idea is that you will take over my role in that board and if those designs are sold and you will get a cut of the sales (and we may host a separate shop for it). I don't believe it would be fair for me and my brand to be the one that "owns" the ideas. Individual boards should.
We would do the fulfillment on that and win-win. Assuming this is something people use and since I'm transparent, these partnerships with you and others is my assumed business model for this website right now instead of things like ads. I also think, given our own results, that this is a life-changing opportunity for people. No other website or platform exists like this. That said, I am going to be extremely picky on who I give boards to, who I make moderators, etc.
SO - I've covered a lot. What are your thoughts on the rules, culture, and website? Suggestions/feedback is encouraged.
Looks good so far. def need a way to report something,
how are mods going to apply, criteria, etc
Yeah same thoughts here
I dont... see any comments.
Also btw we cant submit shirts as comments anymore
I can. If it's a bug, email me what you're seeing.
I will say that the shirt positioning here has room to improve.
emailed, or have the white space be see through, so u see the grey background of the site through irt
