I’m very excited to share with you that over nine hundred people applied to the second seller Community Council. That’s in addition to the more than one thousand who applied to the first Council! Everyone who applied then and now was considered, and once again we hid usernames and selected artists representing a cross-section of the Etsy seller community by way of their location, tenure with Etsy and respective sales histories. Thank you so much to everyone who applied; my hope is to build on the strong foundation that Matt created with the first Community Council so that the Council can better serve the Etsy community at large.
With that in mind, there are two specific additions to look for in the coming weeks. First, in the days before each meeting, I’ll post a thread in the Ideas section of the Etsy Forums to encourage you to share specific ideas or feedback that you’d like the Council to address with us. This is something that many of you already do really well in the Forums; the key difference is that in this topic, the Council will act as moderator by selecting the top few threads that we’ll be covering as a key part of each meeting. Additionally, I’ll also post a summary of each meeting — reviewed and approved by the Council itself — here on the blog a week after each meeting is held. We hope that this will give the community a better sense of what we’re doing and the progress that’s being made here at Etsy thanks to the Council’s help and your input.
Now, without further ado, your second Community Council.
