I've seen a few Threadless designs there, I thought of the artists who were missing out on income (the main reason I avoid buying ripoff shirts myself) but in a weird way it's pretty high praise! Of all the shirt designs in all the world, they chose yours.

Going with square proportions for the images is great, a good compromise between horizontal screens and vertical shirt designs. The six thumbnails instead of the slider for scoring other designs is good, and I see you've already switched the order of designs in people's profiles from oldest first to newest first. It's all good! Excellent changes!

I'd pretty much repeat celandinestern's comment word for word, with a couple of clarifications: I think I read recently that the number of separate colour layers can be up to 12 (it used to be 8). If the colours are all lumped together to be printed via simulated process, the design should still be on a layer with a transparent background.

Sometimes it only takes a day, sometimes it takes several days. They've been flooded with designs recently and have to check each one so I think they're just super busy!

I got the same impression from the article, hellofromthemoon, but I wonder what steps artists could take if they live outside of North America, which a lot of Threadless artists do. If they can't register their work in the USA I guess they just resort to social media pressure like the folks in the article.
