    I don't see anyone asking for upvotes, I see someone genuinely interested in knowing how to use DN for marketing purposes. Whether you think that's right or not, businesses need to use as many channels as possible.

    Don't see a problem with that email.

      I agree. I find the email to be rather personal, and didn't mention upvoting at all. The real question is there. Is Invision posting interesting things on DN? I say, be kind and let them know!

      My initial impression was that it was a sneaky way to ask for upvotes. It does not outrightly state that though. I probably posted too quickly and my title could be more fair, but I do think it is on the edge of spammy and genuinely asking for feedback. Things like including a link to a designer news post that was submitted that day and alluding to wanting to get more upvotes in general are slightly weird.

        If he doesn't include a link to the content he's asking for advice on improving, how will you find it?

          I think including a link to the designer news post is slightly more spammy then including a direct link to the content, that was my main gripe. Of course he would have to include a link to the content, but a link to the designer news submission is not required for feedback on the article.
