Good News! You're Famous

I literally get one or two of these emails every day. What are they? Are people actually manually "following" me or is it some kind of automatic spam?

Whenever someone chooses to follow you on Threadless that's the confirmation email informing you.

Ok, thanks for the reply.

Looking at my profile it says I'm following 35 people - Preeeeety sure I never chose those 35 people to follow - so that must have happened automatically... or something?

Which makes me wonder how many of my 3079 (lol!) followers actually chose to follow me... you sure this doesn't happen somewhat automatically?

tesco

also, protip: don't bother following me, I'm boring!

There is an option to automatically follow someone you've scored a five, or if you've purchased one of their shirts.

Yeah, I turned off that preference super early on. My little world next to my shopping cart get's up to 8 and 12 sometimes; it can be exhausting.

Man, I just noticed your sub to print ratio: 16 prints and 11 submissions. I bow before the Illuminati Emperor.

I turned the email notifications off the first chance I got. Who would want to be bombarded with all of that on a daily basis? Blech.

Also, hi! :-D

tesco

thankfully gmail puts all those emails in a 'social' tab so I never really see them... it just didn't seem right I'm still getting 2+ follows a day... I mean who gives a ashit about me? I have'nt submitted anything in like 5 years.

also hi! I recognise your username, you must be old school like me lol

7 years, 4 months! And just take it as a sign that people are buying your stuff. :-D Which is awesome!

tesco

I'd be amazed if any of my stuff sold out, let alone got a reprint. although that would be nice, you still get paid for that right? so much has changed

Hello there. I think older reprints go by the old contract. The new fangled contract has royalties, percentages and things.

You get a percentage in royalties now. So if you have a top seller...

tesco

Ah I see. Unfortunately I'm not able to produce 'top sellers'... only reason I've got any prints at all is because Ross liked my stuff... which might be a contributing factor as to why he got laid off haha. "stop printing stuff you like and print some of this shit that will actually sell you idiot!"
