This was something that's been going through my mind for a while.
Why do people sell themselves so, so short when doing point commissions? For some reason a lot of people seem to have a warped sense of value in these things, and pushing 100 points for a commission becomes "too expensive" (hell even less than that gets considered expensive).
Do you know how much 100 points is worth, in real money?$1.25 USD
Not so expensive anymore, huh? Now you're working for pennies if 100 points is what you charge. I feel awful for people who do commissions that take them at least 30min to draw, for only 10 points. Thats' like working at a .26c/hour wage.I'd like to direct everyone to this points calculator
This is also why I will never, ever do point commissions. Not only are points basically useless to me, but people seem to think they have like seven million times the value that they actually do.
That is all
EDIT: I'm not trying to stop anyone from doing or buying point commissions, nor am I hating on those that do. It's their choice to offer it for whatever the hell they want. And it works for people who can't do real-money transactions (well, assuming they have a use for the points). I just want to inform
people of the true value for a point, because I have seen too many people assume that they are worth a lot, when they really aren't.
