One second...

Some guy admitted that he uses fake accounts right in the comments of his design. *FAIL*

Watch this

Well he could be misunderstanding 'fake account', anyway this (crap copy-pasted 'designs' + fandom votes by the thousands) was to be expected from this challenge. Not scoring this for the life of me.

I'm not sure that was what he was trying to say but the sub is shit anyway.

Speaking of Minecraft dickery, here's one ripoff "artist". I'm sure there will be more.

Yeah I saw that one too. At least he got caught!

Doubt he really understood what you were saying :O But that^ needs to be reported! Anyone mailed Dan yet?

I don't think that's what he meant to say. Second language etc.

Wow. That's horrific. How can people do stuff like that?!

This guy takes the cake. Top scoring design for the Aqua Teen contest right now. Nearly all the comments are from new users.

Apparently, the only two adjectives his "friends" know are "dope" and "sick".

Jordan, I read through the comments of the design you linked in the original post. I think all those new users are friends or subscribers from Youtube.

I mean, that's technically legit as long as they don't downvote everyone else.

airdeh

Hahahahahah. Dope! Looks pretty 'sick' though, just not liking the shirt color.

yes, he has 37,083 followers on YT, (and apparently a minecraft fan) Not surprising to have some of them sign up and vote for him.

--sux if your not popular anywhere. :[

I like it when Phil Colon takes an interest in Threadless.

Now I'm sad i didn't see the amazing douchebaggery while it was still up.

I dunno, he seems fairly dope.

Although, I'm a little concerned that he may need to see a doctor as all his friends seem to keep mentioning his sick shits.

i especially love the overuse of the word dope. Who goes to THAT much effort! haha

yipusagu

This is a typical behavior in sites like this. The same happens in other sites like DeviantArt

Just checked this guy's comments again. Y'all are dope A.F. So F.R.E.S.H.

It's so stupid. I don't know why I'm even lowering myself to his level.

Because you have a lot of respect and dignity for real artists?

Maybe. I just have a hard time handling people that hide behind the internet to insult people.

My threadless profile. It's ok nothing that serious happened. Some kid just told me to "shut up" and called me a bitch. It was over pretty quick. shrugs

Ahh. Pssssh. Glad it's over!

That wasn't nice. --Glad it wasn't his whole fan base. O.o

I think the guy didnt do anything wrong in the voting process, imo that shows a slight problem in the system. (along with the fake accounts) ...if you are popular enough or a big enough cheater you could possibly win? Or does voting make no difference at all?

This is what I told him: no matter how popular you are, threadless and Mojang will have the last word as far as what prints and wins. I was wrong about the fake accounts but the title, the "design", the # of facebook likes and comments and the overall score just screamed red flag to me.

What if Threadless is about being a business and decides that a person with that big of a fan base will probably sell a bunch of his shirts.... O.O

I can see how it would seem suspicious at first. --I think its very cool how the Threadless peoples here stick together and call out the rip off 'artists' :]

It happened before. Not too often, fortunately. I don't blame them either, I trust their business sense more than mine ;)

There is of course the difference that those designs weren't just copy pasted crap.

I see. I need to start working on my social skills :D

srsly, If I was in business, I'd probably think about business stuff too.

Seriously glad that Threadless has the final say for reasons like that. ._.
