why get rid of it?
was the info out of date? was the info found there embarrassing or incorrect?
Is it because the info isn't actually *on* Etsy's site and therefore doesn't translate into the clickie-clicks which Etsy loves so dearly?
Lord knows, Etsy keeps useless Promotions forum threads forevah and God forbid Etsy should delete a Treasury.
Why? was it hurting anything?

With the exception of a couple of pages (predominantly the lists of top sellers and the page describing common Etsy lingo), the Etsywiki has been rarely used or edited for years. Having languished for that amount of time and it existing outside of Etsy proper, the question in our minds was less "why shut it down" than it was "why keep it up?"
Though I can't say what the outcome will be at this time, I'll talk to the folks who manage our Help content to see how feasible including some information about common Etsy lingo would be. Lists of top sellers can be found on at least a couple of third-party sites.
