Groups, hosts, challenges, voting, etc
These are just my opinions and not facts.
Groups are there to make our life on redbubble easier. The more time passes, the more groups are created.
Although not every group is good for everyone; everyone can join groups and vote.
It is an easy way to group similar works together.
I am a host of two small groups and it a hassle.
I can imagine all the work done by the hosts of large groups:
moderation of work, creating challenges, see that everyone is happy, updated the group etc
It really takes alot of time, and every free minute you have, you try to dedicate it to the group.
No wonder why large groups have a lot of hosts and co-hosts.
From here I really wish to thank ALL THE HOSTS in every group.
What a headache!!
Choosing subjects is always difficult. Submissions to challenges is not always good, depending on the subjecy.
But you have to limit your subject to the group’s theme. Some member do not like it when they cannot submit any work to the challenge.
HOSTS have to check that all the work submitted accept all conditions and rules.
And believe, it is not any easy task for HOSTS to remove works from challenges.
Voting is the worst thing for membersto do.
If they are competing in the challenge, they find it difficult to vote works of others.
If the subject is not intresting, they do not vote.
I hate it when I see challenges being won by 2 votes. It sounds funny!!
FEATURED ON HOMEPAGE
EVERYBODY wants to get featured on the homepage. I do not know the criteria.
But…GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE !!!
I see that most of the work is really nice. BUT REALLY NICE!!!
But I always hate to say that there are some work, which is not nice and still is submitted on redbubble.
When I submit a work, and it receives very very few visits and comments, I remove it immediately.
Better to submit 3 good pieces of work that 10 piecs which are below standard.
WHAT WOULD I DO?
CHALLENGES: at the end of the challenges, I would show all votes received for every work. Sometimes there can be ties, that canot be figured out by the present format.
HOMEPAGE FEATURES: I would create a new section with screen shots of FEATURES ON THE HOMEPAGE. This way, whoever missed his work being features, he can see it at a later stage.
PEOPLE: I would create a new section, sorting all member by country. This ways you can make more friends, and also create activities in your area and invite the “neighbours”.
THANKS TO ALL THE HOSTS FOR ACCEPTING THIS IN THEIR GROUP
THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO ADDED ME IN THEIR WATCHLIST
WHAT WOULD YOU DO??
