A few days ago, as I’m writing this, I saw PLM’s “community project” in place. Now if you know me, you know that I don’t sell anything on this account, and with good reason. I understand if someone’s saving up for something, but I look into the follower’s eyes and already know the term they’re thinking of: Sellout. (Another reason being that I don’t wanna get money by promoting something, I’d rather earn it).
If you haven’t noticed, PLM decided to have $10 shoutouts (story only) in order to fund his project. I know a few accounts that, in their opinion, they price shoutouts at around $2-3, with $5 being the highest. Regardless if people think it’s expensive or not, know that it’s for stories, which will be gone in about a day. It’s like paying $10 to have someone write your name in the sand for some people to see, only for it to get swept away by the tide. Another point I’ll bring up is that what is the community project for? He has only hinted at it. If your going to sell something, at least be direct with your followers so that they can understand so it doesn’t seem sketchy. Ubisoft doesn’t have a DLC paywall for their siege community, so why should you?
