Original Post

for all the same questions asked over and over and over. I'll start with a few suggestions. Feel free to add to the list.

Q: What does Etsy stand for?
A: Who cares?

Q: What is a copyright, and how do I know if I am breaking the law?
A: If you have to ask, you will probably be arrested very soon.

Q: Why won't my photos load?
A: You don't know what you are doing.

Q: Should I open a second shop?
A: No. The one you have now isn't working. Why would you possibly want to open another one?

OK. Everybody start adding to the list.

Do you think my STUFF will sell here?
A: No, I really have enough STUFF in my cellar.

Is someone a bit cranky this evening? This all seems..well a tad negative. We were all new at one point with I would guess similar questions.

Cranky? I thought the idea was to help people by directing them to a concise glossary of Etsy stuff and save them all a lot of typing.

Geez, sorry I guess no I didn't think your post was very funny..perhaps it's me that is a bit cranky tonight. Maybe this should have been posted in Etc. instead. I'm quite sure no one is in trouble with my little post.

Q:How long does it take to get your first sale?
A:I dunno!!! How long did it take you to think up that most intriguing question?
