Another one bites the dust

Seems life at Etsy was not so wonderful for admin WonderAmy.

Bio
thankfully no longer an etsy admin. come visit me at wondercabinet.etsy.com!
Female, Born on June 5


Tsk, tsk, Amy. Profiles are not allowed to express disputes! Be careful or you're cruisin' for a mutin' from your former colleagues. Oh, and we'd like to order advance copies of your disgruntled tell-all book, please.

Why is the admin badge still on your posts, by the way?

Also why is there not full disclosure of all accounts? wondercabinet does not disclose WonderAmy.

The Funny One said...

Not enough coffee, thought I was reading marymary but, alas, my favorite "community liaison" will still be posting those novellas that read just like a Dorque "article"! No subject, no purpose, but tons of pictures!

"Thankfully no longer an admin" --- now THAT message in print should get 4 warnings, signed by 5 Admins (at least)and a 3 month long forum mute for hanging on the that Admin Red Box by her fingernails.

Advice: cash your last paycheck quick before the whole site melts at 3AM ET on October 27th!

The Disgruntled One said...

She's edited it out, I think -- anyway, it ain't there now.

hella said...

what the heck is going on??!!

Impetuous said...

Thankfully? Do tell!
Did someone finally get burned by a passing rainbow fart? Perhaps someone fell into a diabetic cupcake coma?

The firings come in waves, eh? Sucks to be you admin. Sucks to be you.

ebbandflo said...

how incredibly telling, that one little "thankfully" at the start of the profile paragraph!

maybe it's the way all ex-admin will try to re-establish themselves in the community they once patrolled?

apart from the full disclosure stuff, will ex-admin posts still be tagged appropriately in forum threads or will they just appear like semi-litarate ramblings of no purpose?

Eveline said...

Wow. Things are going well at Etsy. Or is Maria finally sweeping the staff room clean?

Eveline said...

It's still there, disgruntled one. Things that make you go 'hmmmm....'

littleboots said...

she added that "thankfully" recently. it wasn't always there. before it just read "no longer an etsy admin".

Eveline said...

Interesting, Littleboots, makes you wonder why she added that later...

foxaz said...

it's funny, but I don't see any mention of thankfully no longer an etsy admin.
I don't see any shop policies, either.

foxaz said...

ok, sorry- it's in the wonderamy profile, not the cabinet thingy..
"never mind"

Her shop has no policies, though.

WindysDesigns said...

She's also violating the policy:

An Etsy account cannot be used for the sole purpose of redirecting traffic to another web location, even if it is another Etsy account. Please contact Support to have your account closed if you are no longer using it.

In the dos and don'ts.

That's 3 violations.

ListenUp said...

Not to take the wind out of your sails, but if you read her blog, a post dated March 20th had already talked about having left etsy..

this isn't recent guys..

The Righteous One said...

"this isn't recent guys.."

Her not being admin might not be but the wording in her shop is, plus she still has the admin badge, but she hasn't been admin for 6 months...which is misleading.

"what the heck is going on??!!"

Maria is putting her stamp on the company. She was brought in to kick out all the old folks, and she is.

Which is to be expected when the VCs put in $27 million.

That Maria is throwing/chasing out the good with the not so good is typical.

littleboots said...

listenup: I do read her blog. That's how I knew that she had left a while ago and how the wording in her admin account profile did not read "thankfully".

That word was added recently, which I find interesting.

Re the admin badge still on her wonderamy posts: Sorry, but who cares? She's no longer posting under her admin account, which is wonderamy. She hasn't since she left. Any posts she made under that account SHOULD keep the admin badge so that others know that an admin had made them at the time.

Ladies Auxilliary said...

I've had the opportunity to interact personally with Wonderamy and...she's not a bad egg, I'd eat a cupcake for her.

That is all. It's true, she left a while back.

The day that Erin and Emily get the can, I'll be doing the BIG happy dance!

interesting... said...

Very interesting-- I had no idea thatshe was an admin-- the items from her other shop were on the FP and gift guides all the time. They are beautiful but still...conflict of interests.

The Kinky One said...

Etsy Admin have conflict of interest?

No!

Say it ain't so.

/sarcasm.

turdknocker said...

How could I have missed this literary diamond? Any news if this was a resignation of a termination? Either way, if the WonderAmy account was being used as an admin face, wouldn't Etsy have revoked it once she was no longer on the payroll?

Eveline said...

Bre still did this Etsy video though, which was posted on YouTube on the 7th of November...
