Wow. I hope they have something even better up their sleeve.

BRB off to put in a custom order for everything that ever crossed my mind just to be safe.

Well that’s dumb.

Etsy has been making a lot of really poor calls lately.. hopefully they have something better to replace it, but I wouldn’t bet on it :/

Custom orders it is I guess.

 

Thanks for the heads up!

QUESTION:What is alchemy?

I just had an e-mail from them! I hope this isn’t their idea of a replacement. I feel so lost on there sometimes so I love Alchemy.

“Hello!

We recently launched a new feature, Circles, that lets you connect with other people on Etsy. When you add someone to your Etsy circle, you can follow along with their favorites in your activity feed. It’s illuminating!

Right now it’s hard to find people you know on Etsy, and that’s sad. Well, we’re changing that. We’re making it easy to connect your email address book to Etsy, so we can find people you know who are also members.

(If you don’t want people you know to be able to find you, you will be able easily to opt out through your account privacy settings.)

We’re letting you know about this in advance, and will be launching this feature in mid-February.”

whoa weird!  I am can’t wait to see what takes alchemy’s place….I can’t imagine them getting rid of it altogether!  I did find it a little overwhelming when I put in a few projects…  I got so many bids and it was hard to keep track of them all!  Fingers crossed for somthing even better!

This kind of sucks.  I have a ring I’d always hoped someone there could fix or replicate, but never got around to making the request.  I guess I could just ask a few sellers individually when I do it, but that sounds like a pain.

@reinab505:

that’s funny, I thought circles was already implemented? Or maybe it’s just the address book feature that has yet to come full force?

 

@ddw:

ditto, if I wanted to do social networking I would be on facebook, not etsy.

@ddw: I know! As soon as I finished reading the e-mail I turned it off. I loved Alchemy though and usually bought that way instead of searching through thousands of things.

That old saying comes to mind…..if it ain’t broke why fix it? Alchemy has been very good to my business so whatever that replace it with, or they try to improve it, I hope it works.
