now thinks, these are the best of the best. And these are folks that already got picked for treasuries or featured stories. So, that's more publicity.

Sorry, didn't mean to whine, I've been out of high school for a long time.

I'm just so confused how a regualar seller like me will ever get noticed.

PS. I work my butt off and pay for my own outside ads. And now a lucky few get it for free. Some even have more than one spot.

I'd like to know who picks the gift guides too.

Hey, I'm ticked off too.... Flipped through all the female categories (sexist, I know) and saw only a little yarn. I've already sold two yarn orders that are going to be Christmas presents.

Admin picks the guides, at least as I understand it.

really guys? i am a regular seller too. It is not just the up and up that are being featured. I have seen lots of people's stuff that I have never seen before or seen the shop. I am sure with time when things sell they will be replaced with new people.

I'm not sure who picks them, but for the past few weeks I've seen forum threads that said, for example, Round 9: Your Pics for a Grandmother, etc.
