Quotable Quotes: Evening Edition

There's just too many good quotes out there today:

"We need answers! We need help for these poor folks who are losing sales because of either misinformation, misinterpretation, or just plain favoritism of those other makeup sellers out there who get away with the stuff eventhough everybody and their sister flags their store for the same crap."

what
the
fuck

So, shall we start guessing when and what little gadget they are going to release to distract us?

The Incredulous One said...

I think this issue will inspire a new flash tool that allows us to draw makeup on our avatars in chat, or perhaps to throw Tammy Faye Bakeresque mascara at other users' avs.

But God knows we won't see the real problem addressed. Please contact roulettewheel@etsy.com to have your concerns properly and randomly addressed or ignored, as the spirit moves us.

kitten said...

Well, Incredulous.... one person did mention the merits of fingerpainting versus using a brush!??

Who knows what the future holds for that thread. I'm waiting for the next Admin message to be the kiss of death. You think that's why the original poster grabbed the Bitch 'muted' avatar when they did? ROFL!

Too funny. A friend of mine said that this is the first time an etsier has managed to use that avatar before they were muted? True? No?

i think i'm in the wtf camp too?


does anyone in etsy high command not see how farcical this whole thing is? and how much they are being laughed at?

impetuous said...

what about that 3D shop they asked our opinion on. this is Etsy not Second Life rokali.

I gagged when I looked at that 3D thing- I hadn't seen it before. It's not even good!

Ok, waste all your time and money making crap like that, but for god's sake make it look GOOD! Hire an anime artist so it can look like YuGiOh or something anyway.

My 6 year old can draw better than that!

(p.s. I could give a shit less about that 3D crap. Sick waste of money if you ask me. Just fix the frickin search already, huh?)

The Dangerous Mezzo said...

Goodness. I've never seen the 3d thing before.

What can I say? I'd rather have statistics for my store.

The Kinky One said...

Kitten,

As far as I know, several have used the EB avatars before with no problems. Specifically at least 4 sellers used it on June 11th in honor of RecoveryBabe's birthday (she's been muted indefinitely). It was a touching tribute imo.

That thread is still going, and with no whiff of admin stankin' up the air either.

Pitiful, and completely embarassing. The OP even went so far as to whistle in admin like a dog. Anyone else think this one and the BeaG thread were up on the jumbotron at headquarters, where the crew sat around eating pie, tossing dry ice and laughing? While the other admins were furiously marking black marks on all the poster's slate scoreboards?

The Ebon Swan said...

Yeah, I'm goin' to Etsy hell for that thread. That's ok, the gloves haven't come off yet.

kitten said...

hehehe... that thread is up to page 19 now and wow. Just.. WOW! It's starting to get a bit testy in there.

It's pretty bad when the OP is screaming for help and there is utter silence on Etsy's end.

Ebon, I'm thinking we need bareknuckles in the ring.

and it still goes on....
