Treasury Comment Limits

Etsy has now implemented a new policy limiting comments to 100 in a 24 hours period for treasuries, this includes BNS/BNr's. I have started a petition on change.org to request that etsy rescind this policy. Please help by signing this petition. Here is the link

When you click on Community on the first page comes this statement from Etsy:
"Etsy is more than a marketplace: we're a community of artists, creators, collectors, thinkers and doers.
Join a team, share ideas, attend an event in your area, join a streaming workshop or watch an archived one."
Funny how they want to stiffle the community, hurt the teams, and prohibit attending events in our area. The web site and the teams are our community and our areas. The BNS/R's are mini-craft shows where sellers get together to exchange ideas, make friends, and help promote each other. Participating in BNS/R's is the only thing that has helped me get noticed and sales on etsy. The ad's didn't help and regular treasuries are rarely noticed, I hope they change their minds. Not one thread today on main forums today, and old threads appear to be gone!! What are we to do???

Where's the sense of community in this bizarre new rule? If there was a "like" button or <3 for your comment Marsha...I'd press it!
It's my understanding their reason behind this bold move is to eliminate treasury/BNR/BNS "spamming".....all they have done now is basically categorize our participation as "spamming". It is a known fact a great deal of sales on Etsy are from BNR/BNS, so I'm just dumbfounded that they are cutting their nose to spite their face. Doesn't make any sense at all!

It's three in the morning and I can't sleep so take this with a grain of salt. If I had "balls" I'd post my comment on main forum page and ask them to change their statement. For they don't mean it!
Look at the weather report on main forum page to see how much money they made in February alone. Over 2 million in fees (3.5% x 50.8 million in sales) and almost another 1/2 million in listing fees. Just for February.
Just like when they started cracking down on the convo's it blew over, I guess this will to, but I was so looking forward to late summer and fall for the bns's and when I have all my xmas stuff listed. Makes you just not want to make stuff. Sorry - again it is now 3:30 am and I am tired. Have a great day!

I too do not totally understand it...,makes no sense as far as I can tell..I too have gotten both sales from BNR's and BNS's...Plus, not only have more learned of my shop,but I have found many friends along the way..I too hope it blows over and enough complain that they will change their minds on this goofy rule...The rule won't stop those of us who want to join in and have fun from doing it,but it does make it a little tougher....
Have yourself a wonderful evening!
