Who can join?

Etsy Team Librarian is a moderated team with the following requirements:

We like to make this as easy and as passive for people to join and participate, however, the following must be adhered to:

1. All members must adhere to Etsy's Do's and Don'ts.
2. All members must "like" the Team Librarian Facebook page if they have a FB account. This is how we keep current with status updates and such!
3. All members should tag all of their active items in their shop with "teamlibrarian"
5. If you have a blog, you can link back to the shop, but please use the designated logo (125x125 pixels) if you can.

If you have any questions, contact Anne (

Original Post

Welcome to TL! We're delighted to have you here. You should receive, after acceptance to the team, two convos/email: One email/convo from Etsy directly welcoming you to the group and one convo from me (ExcessivelyDiverting) laying out team rules and etc. The one from Etsy is automated and I have no control on the content. The second one I send out to new members upon acceptance via Etsy convo feature.

I mention this because as of late I've been doing some housekeeping with some members and found with some members, when I go searching the past convos whether manually or using the search function, these people will not show up. When I send them a convo, the right bar does not populate with past and previous convos so I am led to believe I've never gotten in touch with these people before in welcoming them to the group.

Turns out I've been totally wrong. I now look super flakey because of this weird bug in the Etsy convo system. Sure enough, when I get a response back to my latest convo with the person, previous convos will populate the right sidebar. Search functions will show all past convos with that member - where as I said before, NOTHING came up.

So please, if you have been added to the group and you do not get a convo from me, please email Anne & I at

If you get a convo from me that is a dupe (or of similiar wording) of one I had sent you before, please also let me know that as well either by email ( or via the convo system.

Thanks for your patience!
