Time to get some more Highlights Going!!
« on: April 28, 2012, 07:45:57 PM »
Looks like everyone has forgotten about the highlights LOL, or is just too busy lately. Just so everyone knows Google is indexing the highlights well. Every time a new highlight is posted, the title, description, and keywords become part of the Google search within about 24 hours and become one more way for our site and your work to be found. So time to get creative with some more highlights! Thanks everyone for your support  8)

I was going to start a small contest with highlights and give one of my mini books as a prize as soon as this latest contest is over if that's ok?

This seems to be Etsy's rules:
  • You may not use a Treasury list or comments to reference a specific member, shop or item in a negative way.
  • You may not knowingly harass or abuse another member in Treasury comments.
  • A Treasury list containing mature content or featuring mature content item listings must be tagged "mature" by the curator.
  • A Treasury list's title may not contain profane, racist or mature content.
Seems fair to me, I would hope that one of our members did not use the highlights to be mean to someone.

Does seem fair.  Also seems like common sense.  I can't see any of ours needing to be instructed not to be mean or racist.  At least not at this stage.

of course those rules should be selbstverstaendlich ( darn it know only the german word)
but i mean, in Etsy you cannot include your items, you should not post members twice,
and a couple of other things i cannot remember

I got a translation online:  selbstverstaentlich (could that word be any longer?!) means "obvious" or "it goes without saying."

And yeah, there are no rules like that here; many of us have included some of our own items in Highlights & have included some artists more than once in the same Highlight.  If it works for the theme, go for it.  I think it's also selbstverstaendlich that using ONLY your own stuff in a Highlight really doesn't help your cause, since it just makes you look like an attention hound.
