EB Comments of the Week, September 3rd

impetuous said...

Etsy has never known how to capitalize on anything so I think their parachutes will be bronze at best.

OMG, those IWBF posts make me crazy. I'm so stubborn,it just makes me really want to NOT do those things, just because.

People like that make me want to start smoking again, and let a couple dozen stray cats into my studio!

Welcome Chad, please don't eat the cupcakes or drink the koolaid. If you don't, you might just be the answer to our prayers.

Best wishes on your Etsy journey!

Hmmm ... this was started in Business Topics and promptly (I do mean prompt, within minutes) moved to Etc. Just where is the Cat in the Hat these days?

Muted?

Elvis Impersonator said...

I saw the cat on the Dawanda forum saying she had been muted for a month.

good riddance said...

Only one month?

Damn it.

Ladies Auxilliary said...

Ugh, sorry to know that the drama travels (to other sites like Dawanda). Vomit inducing...

amytime said...

Gee piss off one of the three buyers on etsy good plan.

Maybe we can start charging a $20 a month fee to be a buyer to and bump it to $50 if you buy more than 6 items a month.

Uh no not even close. MotherofJackals actually I just think it's foolish to mute people in general and to mute and possibility alienate one of the few buyers on Etsy is far from smart.

There are lots of buyers on Etsy. Not so many on the Etsy forums. Not so many sellers, either, actually. A very, very small percentage of Etsy users frequent the forums.

Elvis Impersonator said...

Buyers should be held to the same rules as sellers. Just because someone is a buyer doesn't mean they should be allowed to get away bad behaviour.

fly.me.to.the.moon said...

oh good grief ... piss off one of the three buyers on etsy? WTF are you thinking? No, get rid of some of the trash polluting the forums is more like it.

And not all buyers frequent the forums. Just a few, a very small fraction of the whole. And if this is the kind of bull shit you want representing buyers in the forums, more power to you, anytime.

It's actually been a little more peaceful which is why I even asked ... not because I feel sorry for that crazed forum troll. I just kinda looked around and went, OMG ... it's actually quiet ... so where is that cat?

Poor Dawanda forum frequenters. My god, I guess a troll can't be without a home. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

amytime said...

Okay you guys must have seen more of the cat than me. I never had a problem with her. Thought she was funny. She never bought from me but I also never had an issue with her or saw anybody who did. I must just hang out on the wrong threads.
