The Day in Quotes: Wednesday, July 2nd

In Summary

ok, so that's one post in favour of a black list function, 48 posts not in favour/about porn/goats/goat porn, one post about displaying your knickers at the post office and one post documenting all the other posts


I have a few questions
Is Etsy short staffed? Did I mishear/misread somewhere that Etsy is worth $27 million or something like that? Is there more to Etsy 'admin' other than the dork, mary, white dude, stella someone or some other names I can't remember.


A Deadline by any other name
I think in etsyland deadlines should be viewed as suggestions, or possibilities.

The Kinky One said...

The Knickers Incident was one of the best parts of that thread. But I can't quote you every day!

Indeed.

2 posts down I even said I DIDN'T read any Do's or Don't's or blogs or news or whatever and just hoping for a quickie.

I guess you were too lazy to read 2 posts down, eh?

That second post is the one I'm talking about. "I didn't bother to read the rules or anything, I want YOU to do it for me!"

Had I said that "quote" instead of that "thread", well, your comment here might make a little sense.

benetton: **snort**...yes indeed :)

FotherMucker said...

Hmmm...I don't think they are short staffed, I think they are just stretched to max. capacity :) haha! More staff means higher fees and we don't need this to turn into ebay size fees :)

If Etsy doesn't have someone to take care of the forums on weekends, then I would say it's seriously and pathetically understaffed. The admin ass-kissing is really starting to get to me. They are 'stretched to max. capacity'. I think I know the problem - they must have TOO many people there working to make money for them. Maybe it's high time some of us sellers get off of Etsy and take some of the pressure off of admin?

OMG, Jodie, I love you so much! You're such a class act. I'm laughing so hard I almost woke up my daughter. Thanks you EB for bringing that thread to my attention! <3

WindysDesigns said...

I think what I miss more than kvetching in the forums is not being able to participate in threads like this, or sharing similar stories.

sugarstreetcafe said...

WINDYS!!!

How come you can't participate? Are you muted?

The Kinky One said...

Windys was muted (indefinitely I think - correct me if I am wrong) for failing to think of cupcakes before posting anything in the forums.

sugarstreetcafe said...

ah of course.

(note to self - must remember cupcakes before posting on forums)
