Just be patient for a reply okay, if it gets too long then take further measures to ensure a response.
Thanks, I needed this kind of reassurance.
I’m going to read the letter over again and send it. I’ll keep this in mind when I’m waiting.
I think it’s pretty good! Maybe you should post up the text so we can all email them the same?
I don’t want to spam What Pumpkin’s inbox with copies of the exact same letter. But if any of you would like to write your own letter to them, that would be awesome and probably help a lot.
I think it’s great accept maybe stress in the last paragraph how important it is to get to the right person.
Okay, what do you think I should do to change it? Should I remove that portion altogether, or replace it with something else?
I misread what you had said. How do I ask for that without sounding too pushy?
EDIT2: I litterally just added “This issue needs to be brought to the right person.” right before the last sentence, does that work?
I tried contacting What Pumpkin about the issue with Hot Topic through twitter (thought that was the best way to send them the link) a few days ago and they have not responded. I’m trying to e-mail them instead.
Here’s my letter as is. Please help me critique and edit it.
(ending with a question mark to add an answer box)?
Sketches of the V-Day requests. I will try to make them better tomorrow, just wanted to have something up today, and ran out of time.
If you want me to change anything, just tell me what. If what I have here was not what you had in mind, I can start over. I’ll probably definitely redo that last prompt.
Anyway, good night, I hope you all had a great Valentine’s Day!
How about just for today I doodle/draw any Homestuck pairings you drop into my inbox. It’ll be like a party for fictional couples that everyone can enjoy.*
Send me a request, while I work on my other compilation thing.
*Will not actually contain a party
The problem with this OP is that the current fan base of Homestuck, mspa’s biggest franchise, is overflowing with a whole bunch of rabid tweens that want nothing more than to be edgy which is what Hot Topic does, they sell stuff that is based off of nerd/alternative music subcultures and markets the fuck out of it.
So you think cashing in on that portion of fans should be more important than What Pumpkin’s integrity and the respect they get from the fanbase?
Of course there’s a market, that’s why this happened in the first place. But the point of my post was that it’s not worth it. And I’m even more disgusted with the fact that Hot Topic markets/takes advantage of young teenagers and kids by selling them this crap. But I decided not to include that part of my post, and kept it focused on the importance of business integrity.
You know, in retrospect I should have made it more clear that this post was referring to the fact that Hot Topic is going to be a judge for the Homestuck Design Contest for the purpose of selling a shirt design in their store.
I assumed everyone would have already been well in-the-know about it, but I really should have included that information in my post, anyway.
I had a feeling that was the case. The only other comic store in my area tried to branch out to my mall, but had to close after only a short time.
Oh dang, you’re right, they’re only in New England. I didn’t think to check until you said it.
The website for the store is here. I assumed Newbury Comics was country-wide since they’re so well-known here. That kinda weakens my suggestion of them as an alternate, huh?
Are there any more wide-spread comicbook stores, or is this the best we got, either way?
