all I know is that they are experimenting with it on Thursdays. I played around with titles and tags on both thursdays so far and I can't figure out why other products show up before mine. It's very confusing, I hope someone can explain it all.

did you see what they did to the convo system???? I'm not happy!

So that could possibly explain my lack of sales yesterday then? I had 7 sales on Wednesday then 4 sales today, but ZERO on Thursday. Grrr....this could be bad.


What happened to convos??!?! Oh no!

There is an announcement in the forums. Basically they added a feature to be able to mark convos as unread, yippee! HOWEVER, in doing so, they cut down the dropdown box that shows everyone in your convos to the most recent 12. For some people it's not a big deal, but for me and many others, we need to reference convos much older than that and to search through pages is a pita so we use the dropdown box to find the username. A bunch of people complained (including me, and I don't usually voice negative opinions too much), so then they upped it to the most recent 100. Still not good enough, I have 86 pages of convos and I'm sure others have way more than I do. So they finally upped it to 1000. So it's better, but I'm still not happy. It it would be ok if you could search convos by username, but that's not easily done. Also, it wouldn't have been that bad if we'd atleast gotten some warning you know? I dont' know what I'd have done, perhaps go through and tag more of the important convos.

Anyway, yeah, the relevancy thing can be good but can be bad. It'll be good IF we know how to title and tag properly, then we won't have to renew as much. But it just seems so random.

Can anyone shed some positive light????

Ahh okay, just read the thread in the forum on convos. I use gmail, so I save all my convos to a folder in gmail and I can search there so much easier than I was ever able to do on Etsy, so It didn't effect me. I could see how without any notice, it could be a huge pain.

What relevancy is supposed to do and how etsy's search will function could be two different things. Were your sales off last Thursday Michelle? What the search is supposed to do is have only hand painted, purple widgets show up in a search if that is what a customer is searching for and not purple what nots. There have been several buyers that I've seen in the forums that have complained about having to wade through pages of stuff unrelated to their searches and were very turned off by it.

I'll have to start doing that. I just need to figure out how to forward the emails to gmail from my regular email???
