CrowdSpring sinks to even lower lows…
This weekend, while Jay and I were busy updating no-spec.com, twitter continued to be all aflutter over the latest from CrowdSpring: CrowdSpring, Do What’s Right!
And while this is shocking enough – ok, not shocking as rips happen all the time on crowdsourcing sites – what has upset designers is CrowdSpring’s three strikes policy.
That’s right. A CrowdSpring designer gets to submit various ripped designs a total of three times before getting banned.
To follow the event yourself, here are the top searches on twitter:
CrowdSpring: Where have all the cheerleaders gone?
Ross Kimbarovsky: The voice of CrowdSpring on twitter.
Crowdsink: The twitter tag designers are using to publicise the problem.
And of course, make sure to read down through the original article: CrowdSpring, Do What’s Right!
Apparently this has been going on for about three weeks, but the designer in question is still submitting work at CrowdSpring. Amazing.
Btw – if you haven’t noticed, no-spec.com is now on twitter too: nospec.
So if you do twitter, go ahead and give us a shout…
