You spelled 'tattooed' wrong in your user name.

That's so not the first thing you should say to someone xD

I know, sorry.
It was the first thing I noticed and then I was focused on it.
First impressions are everything, especially when you are asking strangers for money.

I dont have anything against you

Don't take my comments to heart, but just to be fair I have a slight dislike of people who ask for money instead of saying hello

I was looking up places to share and post and spread my page, and I found this place.  Is this forum not called Shameless Plug?  I only posted here because yes I would like to plug it.  I never posted my link on any other forum, if all I wanted was money I would have posted this link on every forum.  But instead of giving me a chance to post other places or "say hi" I get confronted and judged about a misspelling of a user name.  As you have passed judgement on me automatically assuming I am after money.  That is not fair to me.

I think the issue is that you posted here first, and instead of being like "Hey, look at this cool thing that I do." (Which is very cool btw) it came off as "I do something interesting, can I have money?" We have plenty of people that sell there wares on the forum. Affray does awesome patches, Rob makes really neat music, DaRatmasta has a pretty nifty website of his own, etc. They all made a friendlier first impression though. 

 

I think if you'd like to continue posting to the site, no one would sweat it and you could fit right in. Take this as a learning experience. Forums are tricky to advertise on, I know from experience. You have to integrate yourself into the community first or you'll be met with responses like this, or generally much worse.

I like what you do, but I have an intense dislike for crowdfunding stuff, so I'll pass.

Why not post something in the introductions section?

We really did.

 

I'm being completely honest.

 

She didn't want to offend us, and she said that she completely read the rules etc.

 

I even felt off-put reading this thread. I get that it's kinda weird for someone to promote themselves who we don't know, but other people don't know that that's how we work. She honestly thought that this thread was indeed for promotions of the business kind.

 

Maybe we could reword the writing (or whatever--brain no work with the words right now) to mention about how we'd prefer to know the human and not just the product. It's an unwritten rule that is well understood by us, but completely unclear to anyone outside, and that's just what happened.

 

She's even got a profile and not the spambot-y type.

 

For a closing comment, I shall just say, "Spambotalot."
