Hey designers,

I have 2 Dribbble invites up for grabs. I just thought you guys might be interested in one.

It’s easy. Just make a kick-ass design and get the invite. Read more [link removed] about it here [link removed]. Please look up for Dribbble if you don’t know what it is.

I’ll announce the winners on 10th August.

Good luck and have fun!

@sporttipsworld, @pricop,

You guys are kidding right? What part of it sounded like a self promotion?

1. One needs to follow me on twitter so I can inform them via DM when they win & ask for their accounts.

2. One needs to follow me on Dribbble so I can convert their prospect accounts into draftees.

3. They need to show me their work so I can choose whom to draft.

Here’s a similar thread started by an envato mod 3 weeks ago – http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/2-dribbble-invites/68262

Themeforest is a great place for designers and so is Dribbble. There are tons of people who’d love to get an invite for Dribbble. Just google for ‘dribbble invites’ and you’ll see what I mean. It would be great if you let the great designers get one.

P.S – Now the links have been removed by a Mod. Thank you guys. Both of you did a great job.

Hey Mr Bad Attitude, the links were removed by a mod for a reason.

Perhaps ASK A MOD what that reason was !

Your links are removed so I am not sure what is the actual rules of your giveaway.

However, you mentioned user need to follow you on twitter and dribbble to take part. I think thats the self promotion bit. Look at the post by Christine, users need to only submit their works.

I think user can simply send their works to you via email or upload them somewhere and then send you the urls. Right?

I am not the mod, so I could be wrong too :)

Hi arunpattnaik,

I am not sure who disabled your links, but personally, I feel I would have done the same for the following reasons :

1 ) Growing twitter follower numbers through giveaway of an invite is sort of unfair towards the ones that actually do follow, take the time to share the work and don’t get invited after all. It’s unproductive as also most of them end up un-following as a result after a while. Also, if you know there are dedicated threads for sharing twitter names. As for your argument, you can contact them through their marketplace profiles or simply request an email address. It is within their interest to be “reachable” you know :)

2 ) pretty much same as with the twitter part, there is a thread with dribbble accounts, you can post the username there and nobody will complain about it. As for the drafting process, you can also invite via email, users don’t have to be prospects to be drafted (trust me, had my share).

3) is perfect. :D

But all in all, don’t let yourself discouraged by this. The intention is a good one (to invite players) and I’m sure the talent-pool is also full of bright individuals willing to get on there :)

p.s: I know there are lots of negative “examples” but mods are humans too, and there is always room for constant improvement + our rules do tend to also develop, not stagnate at their state for 8 Months plus (as miroslav’s example shows) if you wish, here is my way of doing it : http://3docean.net/forums/thread/dribbble-invite-up-for-grabs/69072 and it worked well.
