Handmade Knitting Needles -As Unique as you are!

Phillip,

I was able to get into Etsy for most of the day with no problems logging on. However, you are not alone! I saw in the forums a plea for admins help to fix the "logging in" issues because so many were having them...I guess some who couldn't get in were contacting other fellow Etsy'er begging them to post in the forum for them.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many bugs were reported today! The forums were FLOODED with them. I never once saw an admin post a reply to any of them.

Surprise, surprise..... Etsy is down again tonight. There were people who were considering just putting their items in "edit" mode until V.2 gets fixed, so customers wouldn't buy them and get stuck with an awkward and/or botched sale.

Kind of makes me wish they wouldn't have "upgraded".

Meeeee, too! It's frustrating, although it does look really awesome...much cleaner than before. I'm just hoping it gets better in the next day or so, and that this upgrade didn't hurt them/us more than it helped before the holidays. I have a lot of respect for the Etsy team; I just kinda wish they had waited until after the new year. But who knows...by this weekend, we all may be truckin' along better than we were before. Any migration of that size will have its kinks.

The song "I want my MTV" keeps playing in my head, but instead, it's "I want my Et-et-syyyy"...lol. Cheesy

I'm surprised too at how many bugs there were with the new launch.  I'm no computer expert, but could some of this been prevented?  I'd rather shut down for a week to make sure everything is working before going live again!

I hope most of the kinks will be resolved before Thanksgiving.

But I know those guys are working very, very hard.

I haven't been able to access Etsy at all today. I get a connection failed error.

I'm hoping that they will extend our listing times for those of us who listed yesterday due to the fact that no one can enter the site without problems. It would only seem fair.

I am starting to wonder if I should look into getting my own website so that I can still have a web presence when Etsy is down.

Twisted,

I decided to take the plunge and get my own website. I've gotten more sales from that than from Etsy. Etsy hasn't been really good for sales. I'm not sure why.

At least if you have your own website you'll always have a way to make sales even if Etsy has bugs or is down.

Allstix: yeah I think it is something I am seriously going to consider. Etsy hasn't been great for me as far as sales go. I mean I get lots of hits and views, but having been on Etsy for over a year now and only sold 98 items..... I could do so much better.

I promote a lot. I am always doing things to try and get more business on Etsy, but I haven't been really successful with it. I am not so sure why, since Etsy gets tons of traffic.... sales should be better. I don't know.

My cloth pads sell better online than most of my crochet stuff. My crochet stuff sells better offline than my clothpads... so who knows.

It seems that people are able to log into Etsy, but for some reason I am unable to. I cannot get into my account at all. I can click through forums, and other peoples pages, but I cannot log in.

This is so frustrating.
