From the About this team: UPDATE: Please no sharing of fan pages, Treasuries, new item listings in the Etsy Success Forum, unless you are sharing or asking for small business advice. Thank you!


I understand this message from the team concerning hit and run postings. There's another thread going on about treasuries and people promoting.
Please help this team delete this post. It hurts us as shop owners.

There's quite a few promotional threads going on here right now. Hopefully the moderators can do some housecleaning when they get the chance.

I know, I hope so too!

I belong to a few teams that do a lot of promoting and they're great.

That said, I always enjoy the Etsy Success team and threads because there is no promotion...I hope the thread mods reign it in!

I agree. I can't stand teams that just cross-promote each other constantly...that's one of the reasons I like this team, even though I don't post often.

I like that this team has real discussions about real issues, instead of just "hey, look at me! Praise my stuff!" threads.

Not that there's anything wrong with that, but it's place is not here.

Thanks for the reminder. :-)

Thank you for posting this! Like Katrina, I like keeping my helpful teams and my promotion teams separate :)

Posted at 11:54am Mar 15, 2012 EDT

Just want to give this a bump:)

Posted at 12:16pm Mar 15, 2012 EDT

I have to give this ANOTHER bump! They are still posting the treasuries on that same link! Incredible!

Can the team leaders or moderators close the threads that are promoting here? This is one of my favorite teams because of the lack of promotion. There are plenty of other teams I belong to that are great for promotion.
