About a week ago I received an IM from someone I didn't know.... This person snagged my attention away from working for 10 WHOLE MINUTES, to explain his new sale typy event (yet he says it is not an event...Wutevs!) Anywhoooos... He lets me know that I was referred to his 'event' from a fellow merchant friend of mine (whom I adore <3 & not her fault)... He also drops me a NC stock full of info, answers my questions, and then practically BEGS me to join their website, so as I can get good 'feel' for what their site and presence is about. So I look. I join. I apply.....
I even recommend the site to a fellow designer friend... and she applies as well. Less then 24 hours later she gets her answer. DENIED! Denied because her store isn't a 'good fit'....
My application results? Must have been lost in the mail... Or maybe they were REALLY THINKING HARD on this one. Pfff... About 4 days later I get my response (and I applied first)... DENIED! And for the same reason.. I dont fit. Whaaaaaaaaadafuk?
Ok, so let me get this straight.... YOU people come knockin on my IM box... drag me away from working to tell me all about their neato new EVENT... ITS AN EFFIN EVENT OK?!? Make me sign up for their site, friend me on their site, blah blah blah..... and it never occurs to them to check out if I 'FIT' before they decide to contact me? Lame.
So I have to ask the question..... What non-themed, generic as FUK sale event would turn away ANY designer? Don't you want to appeal to all types? I would get it if this event was called 'Medieval Times Sales'... but it isnt. So why the whole 'FIT' crap? I dont get it.
Don't get me wrong, I could care less about the sale event... those are a dime a dozen in SL.... and I don't always get accepted into things I apply for.... No Biggie. But to not do your homework on a store/designer before taking time out of your SL and theirs to try to lure them in... Well that only shows your level of sucking. So go suck it somewhere else. I run my business well and legit and I will never stand for the morons of SL who don't respect other people and their time. My business is real... Respect that!
Ok... rant over *bows* Thanks for listening... love to you all bitches! ;)
