Hi friends,

If you arrived on Etsy when or before I did (mid 2007), you might know of the "Etsy Wiki" at etsywiki.com. Most of the information there was provided by the Etsy community and we experimented with it as a space for community members to include resources on, well, anything that might be useful to a seller.

Those of you who arrived after I did probably know it as one place where you can see lists of top sellers, maintained there after we removed our list from the site itself. For an experiment, it has had a pretty good run and now must sail into the West to find peace.

We'll be shutting down etsywiki.com in about 72 hours. If there's any useful information that you've seen there that you'd like to hold onto, please take the time to save it somewhere that isn't the Etsy Wiki. Thanks for being here on Etsy, and, if you knew about it, supporting the Etsy Wiki!
