How to Participate in Etsy's Forums
Etsy's forums serve as meeting places for Etsy members. In essence, Etsy forums are public message boards where members can discuss all manner of topics. To participate on an Etsy forum, log in to your Etsy account and follow these steps:
Click the Community link at the top of any Etsy page.
The Community page opens.
Click the Forums link on the left side of the page.
The Forums page opens. Five forums are available: Announcements (from Etsy), Site Help, Business Topics, Ideas, and Bugs.
Click the title of the forum that you want to visit.
The forum page opens.
Click a thread that interests you.
A page opens, showing the post that started the thread, along with any responses to that post.
To respond to a post, click the Post a Reply button at the top of the page or scroll down to the bottom of the page.
The Post a Reply box appears.
Type your reply and then click Post a Reply.
Your post appears at the end of the list of replies.
(Optional) To view threads in which you've posted a reply, click the Your Threads link on the left side of any forum screen, click the Threads You've Posted In tab, and click the thread that you want to view.
If you find a thread that's particularly interesting, you can mark it. That way, you can easily keep track of new posts in that thread. To mark a thread, open the thread and click the Mark button. To view threads that you've marked, click the Your Threads link on the left side of any forum screen, click the Marked Threads tab, and click the thread that you want to view.
Before you reply to a thread in an Etsy forum or start a new thread of your own, be sure that your post doesn't violate Etsy etiquette.
