2011 marks another year here at Etsy and with it, the prospect of new tools, new members, and new transactions. Just as you must first drag out the soft-with-dust boxes from the studio before you can pull in your shiny new collection of apothecary jars, so we must also say adieu to some of our awesome but older tools.
Over the past year, we’ve been improving technology platforms. Many of the early tools on Etsy were built in Flash and we’re moving away from supporting Flash code.
The following applications will be coming off our site today: Time Machine v.1, Editors’ Picks, Colors v.2, Connections, Birthdays, Voter, Tag Fractals, Poster Lookup, Poster Sketch, Workshop, and Recent Custom Creations.
We’re sad to see these go because they remind us of the earliest Etsy days and how far we’ve come as a community. As we look forward to the new tools of 2011, please join us in wishing these applications a fond farewell.
