I think the moderator needs to explain why your original category choice was wrong. If the things you put in there are inappropriate, what does go there?

This needs to be backed up by some sort of written description of what each category should contain. Someone came up with these categories, surely they had a type of item in mind.

MY PROBLEM IS THIS,

Quote:
New glass goes in contemporary not in any other catagory
THIS IS FROM THE MOD.

BUT WHEN I GO TO CONTEMPORARY I SEE TONS OF OLD STUFF. WHEN YOU GET DOWN TO IT THE GLASS AND POTTERY CAT. IS FILLED WITH ALL OLD GLASS WORK NOT MUCH ELSE.

To answer your question-Gorham crystal could fit in decorative or elegant, as far as i'm concerned. It's beautiful stuff!

As for the comment about picking on dropshippers...these are simply the rules at Ecrater. Affiliates and dropshippers are not in the search and not at the top of the category. That was not the decision of the moderators, they are following the OWNER'S RULES. don't make us out to be bad guys-we are volunteers, trying to do the best we can ( 99% of us)..want this job for a while and see how much fun it is???

Yes, when a moderator suggests a category, they have something in mind...but if a seller puts something else in that category that technically fits there, a moderator probably will leave it right there...these decisions are very difficult, when everyone has a different opinion on where it should be...there will NEVER be a guideline that everyone will agree with!

Yours is actually more appropriate using the definition I found which seemed to imply that glassware was tableware.

Even so, I wouldn't move the other item, either.

I thought the mods were here to take care of the really glring infractions, like new plastic faux "collectibles" in the antiques categories. To see this kind of nit-picky and possibly wrong behavior is alarming.

Glacier - I wasn't trying to pick on you for being a drop shipper that was certainly not my intent and I do apologize if my post came across that way - Dawn

As you know ,anyone such as yourself that is a drop shipper , your items will not be brought up in any google search. And your store is marked as such too. The ones that us moderators have the most trouble with is the drop shippers, they put their items every where and if it was up to us moderators we would deleted and ban all that puts items in the wrong catagory. But we can't do that and that has to be done by the owner, all we can do is request and when I request I am at 100% so far. I email every one that puts items in the wrong catagory and let them know , then if it happens again then I request them to be banned or close store till items are moved.


She's not making sure that this seller knows the owner's rules. She even says, "as you know..." She's warning OP that she doesn't like drop-shippers.

Some of this might be excusable if the item that was moved was in the wrong category, but clearly it wasn't. So unless someone can give me a good reason that a crystal bowl in Tableware: Elegant is a gross violation, I'm going to have to look at this as unwarranted harassment.

OK, the way that quote function works is funny. Obviously Glacier Gifts wrote that the mod wrote. LOL

The only person that can resolve this issue is the owner..not us. Let's not argue about something we can't change here.

JUST WANT TO KNOW IF I WAS WRONG?


I can't imagine better categories for the above items. Basically this comes down to harassment. I have a feeling glaciergifts is not the only drop-shipper to be getting this treatment. Many sellers don't know the forum exists. Others have posted similar but not as outrageous examples.

There are drop-shippers and there are drop-shippers. I don't think this is so much about drop-shipping as removing as much from the category as possible so the mod's items will stand out. I'm not a drop-shipper and this mod has moved some of my items, won't tell me which ones or where they were moved. Short of going through 3000 listings, I'll never know.

This is a serious abuse of power. I'm a mod and I don't operate this way nor do the others I communicate with daily.

Glacier - those pictures you took are very good, very elegant items. I would have put them there also. I wish I had a good answer - please keep me informed of the outcome - Dawn
