Etsy made some changes to how it deals with reports of technical glitches on its site. First, it’s removing “bugs” – not literally, of course. Rather, it’s changing the name of its “Bugs and Technical Issues” forum to simply “Technical Issues.”
More importantly, it’s removing one-to-one support in the Technical Issues forum.
“While we won’t be posting as much as we had in the past, please know that our Technical Issues moderator is online Monday – Friday, 9am to 5pm EST to keep an eye out for emerging, high impact issues, and to alert the community to sitewide errors or major bugs.”
It explained the change by noting that users can now reach Etsy Support via its Help Center, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Etsy is encouraging sellers to post on the Technical Issues board however, offering it as one of three methods for sellers to get assistance with problems they encounter:
