Since I am bilingual, I could see the possibility of having used a translator program and everything is backwards and messed up....oh well good luck to her...

This one goes for 5 pages and I made one about IBH that lasted 2 posts and got my hand slapped...gotta love it! 


As far as this seller, I think the translator program is her worst enemy here.  She really needs to find an English speaking friend.

Oh here is the newest...etsy is hit by spam bots....they favor everything in your shop going from shop to shop.....hahahahahaaaaaa....etsy cannot get a grip on it....

It really is not a big deal, other then that it will totally mess up your actual shop stats...so there goes counting on your numbers...
They cannot shut them down fast enough, and the threads are full again of this and shut down by Mr. Cowbyhat , whoever he is....
This is such a joke.....over there....

I've gotten two email this morning from someone pushing http://www.isupportamerican.com/.  My curiosity got the best of me...  it runs soooooooooo slow, I almost gave up.  It's another Etsy clone right down to the front page layout.

There are people favoriting items on Etsy so you will look at their profile.  I had heard about that but recently had it happen to me.  When I checked out the profile, it read like an advertisement for SEO.  More spammers.

Just read this entire thread. I feel sad.

Can someone link to where Etsy says they want models in pictures now? Thanks.


They didn't say that in that thread, but in a wedding thread here [size=78%]http://www.etsy.com/teams/7718/site-help/discuss/10211103/[/size] (watch out, it is a LONG one) when they changed the wedding category to look to be more like pinterest.  Have  no idea what page it was on and don't remember if Etsy said it or it was just assumed by wedding sellers based on what was being picked for the pages.

That is it and people are up in arms about it.  Going to be a shock to those that don't visit the forums when all the categories change over.

There's all of 4 items left in my Etsy shop, the last of which will expire next month, and you have no idea how thrilled I am to not be part of that place any more!

I saw this article on FB today and thought I'd share it with you. Needless to say I have issues with it. They obviously did not do their homework very well regarding Etsy. I was about to ask what you guys thought, but I'm sure I'll hear something.  :D

I am down to 26 books there, I felt myself start to waver in my conviction to leave once everything had expired when 5 books were sold there this month with me doing ZERO, pretty much ignoring that shop, then I read this to put my integrity back in check....sorry folks, for those not familiar with regretsy but the language gets a little ...mmmm....spicy at times LOL
