Unfortunately, we have had a lot of abuse with our StreetTeam program lately in the blogs. People have been embedding their StreetTeam URL in images in their blogs so that if someone were to just visit their blog without clicking anything it was as if they had clicked their StreetTeam link.
Therefore, we are going to have to make a small change. The main idea of the StreetTeam URL is to give back to those that help us promote the site. As written on the StreetTeam page:
One of the best ways to earn StreetTeam points is to link to Threadless from other websites or through email using your unique StreetTeam URL.
So, now, if someone were to click your link while already on Threadless, re: from your blog post or comment, or your profile page, the link will not work. You must link to Threadless using your StreetTeam URL from another website or through email or a chat client or some other external method in order to receive your points.
Your StreetTeam URL will no longer work if clicked from Threadless. After all, you're not really refering somebody to Threadless if they are already on Threadless!
Your StreetTeam URL will still work when used linking to Threadless from other websites, in emails, chat clients or other external methods.
Sorry it had to be done and thanks for your understanding.
The hits just keep on comin' in LOVESland because out of the blue, here comes November Loves #2 and it's a doozie. From the makers of the fastest-selling independent board game in history, Cranium, comes the new taste sensation called Pop 5! We tested it out here in the office and it's a serious blast. I successfully acted out "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" and hummed a few bars from "The Little Mermaid" theme to help lead my team to victory! I don't mean to brag but, i coulda sculpted it, too...
The theme is "It's Not What You Know, It's How You Show It" and the prizes are just incredible. Ross almost had a heartattack when he saw the signed Gary Baseman book with the one-of-a-kind drawing. I think my favorite prize is the extra game that you can give to a friend! I'm all about sharing. And so my friends, I share with you...
LET'S DO IT!
If you're in the area and need some extra cash, listen up.
We're hiring quite a few part time positions right now in our warehouse. You'll be standing on your feet all day, moving boxes of shirts, pulling, packaging and shipping orders. You'll be having tons of fun and will make $10 / hr doing it.
Must be available to work at least 3 days, 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday. We will be offering weekend hours and nights in November through December.
Right now, if you can work 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday and are 17 or older, write out your schedule, head up to our warehouse as soon as you can and prepare for a day of interviewing and work to try it out. You need not call or write, simply show up at the door sometime this or next week, ask for Shondi and we'll give you a chance!
We're located at: 4043 N Ravenswood Ave #106 Chicago, IL 60613
Come in the front door to the building, take a left (don't mind the mess, the building is still under construction) and head into the first set of double doors with Threadless stickers on them.
Hope to see you soon!
Oh, and don't forget to tell your friends!!!!
November 1st is a week away and with it, another incredible Loves contest, and my friends, we are PSYCHED about this one. We're proud to present the OWEN Loves Threadless "One Of These Days" contest!
