Angry Nerds Cause Bad Publicity

Nerds who put many hours of work into rules summaries, unique cards and the like for their board games have their work deleted. 

More geek rage.

Personally, that's short sighted. The problem with board game fandom is that we're a little...intense...about our games. Hose one person's files, and all his or her board gaming buddies will hear and hear and hear about it. And new games are coming out all the time it seems- if one company pisses off the fans, there are tons of others hungry for the business...

Hey, I don't like this poll design!

You have to basically answer 'etsy sucks', unless you want to be some sort of jerk who says that everyone with an issue with etsy , no matter whether it's the folks who pick the front page's obsession with white women being attacked by clothing to too many resellers is a whiner.

And saying bad things about other sellers is just bad business. Not only are sellers buyers, and you just called them all lazy whiners who suck at life, it just smacks of hypocrisy. If whining is what people who don't focus on business do, and you're whining about that...hmm...

I need to advertise my free shipping sale more, but I have more than one tab open. I can blog and advertise at the same time.

Etsy is finally responsible!

Instead of RAH RAH POSTIVITY EVERYONE WHO HAS A LOGICAL QUESTION ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS PLAN IS JUST JEALOUS! etsy has produced an actual sensible business related article that even has profit mentioned!

This sort of thing is why I am a hobbyist. People in business can't just run off and spend all their earnings on beads- they have to grow their business, working to cultivate new markets, and making new product lines. You can't just take a day off to play video games!

Black Folks Love Twitter

I thought a lot of trending topics were amenable to my interests!  The net is for everyone!

I made two items yesterday, but I need to do some photo editing before I can post pictures on the web.

Dear etsy

Really, we don't want people who already get extra promotion to get more off the backs of our shops. When I promote me, I promote me. I'm not promoting who is hip on the etsy scene today. I might personally like their stuff, or think their stuff is horrid, but those folks can promote themselves on their own.

Artfire Drama

Man, folks are being threatened and there's wackiness! I also hear about 20 folks were muted over the kerfuffle, and that even more allegations will surface soon. Also, part of the forums has disappeared too.

I'm sort of bummed. It's as if my jewelry making ability isn't very creative lately. I just need more beads, I think

This photo amused me.

Allegations are flying!

Will Lime Crime answer them? I hear the field of mineral makeup is difficult, with people worrying about resalers all the time. Sadly, in the field of jewelry, I'm just here waiting for my beads to arrive. I guess the lesson from the kerfuffle about this is maybe you guys should do some in the studio shots to show how unique you are, and worth the price? But the truth about me is that I make all my products in my room from beads I find on the internet.

Hey, it's the eye makeup liberation front!
