Attention Team Members

I am noticing alot of members who do not participate on this team. As our charter states you must be an active member. I am not asking you to do it everyday but popping in every so often and actively posting in our threads and in our team events. Vanessa and I work extremely hard keeping up with this team. We spend lots of hours updating threads, running events, and keeping in touch with everyone. I sometimes feel overwhelmed with all that I do, but I started this team to help. My goal is for each and every member to pitch in and help each other. Promoting not just your own shop but team shops. Posting on social media, making team treasuries and participating in our trade events. 
In the coming month every membership will be re-evaluated and you will receive a convo regarding your membership. If you are one of our few active members we really appreciate your time and dedication to this team. I have lots in store for our team in the future and need people on board and who want to be active members of this team. I do all these things to benefit our members, help you get sales, and get your shop name out there. I wholeheartedly believe in cross promotion and it does work!! I know for example my 75 Views or a sale game has sold a few items. But you have to participate to have a chance to be featured. 
I am 100% committed to helping this team be stronger and better. The bottom line we need more participation and more shops who want to help and be helped.
I want to remind everyone there is a TRADE EVENT November 8-9th and we are having a really hard time feeling hosts spots. Hosting a 1 hour spot is a wonderful way to get to know team members. Its not hard and all it takes is a one hour commitment. 

I am search of a new LEADER. If you are interested and would like more information on this please convo me and I will let you know specifics. My shop is Harmony5 on etsy.

Remember Christmas is only 51 days away and who wouldn't want some extra sales because you were involved in this team and helped cross promote.

I wanted to let everyone know I will be back in my full capacity October 13th. I had my Wedding, honeymoon and we are moving into our new house! Alot of exciting stuff!!
Wanted to let everyone know I have some great things planned for our wonderful team!
November 8-9th 9am-9pm Eastern we are having our TRADE EVENT. Its going to be lots of fun!! Great time to trade for Christmas gifts!!
Also I want to try and launch new events too!! Using social media more and get team members more involved with social media. Using social media to promote shops is a great way of helping get exposure to our team shops!!! I will be launching a new Twitter Team Page too!
I am also going to start a TEAM SERENITY facebook page!!
I started this team for bascially two reasons,
#1- to help eachother whether it be promotion, advice or just to support eachother.
#2- to have a fun place to meet other etsians and to be involved in games and promotion.

I encourage all team members to be involved and promote as much as possible.

I am noticing hardly any participation throughout the team, and do realize its Summer and we go on vacations and such. Unfortunately I have an upcoming wedding and will not be able to check on everything until afterwards but I am asking even if it is popping into a thread to post new items or participating in the Challenges each month please try and do so. We cannot continue with as many members as we have with only 20% of members participating. If you havent been active in awhile and know you wont be able to please remove your self from the team. Thanks

I have started a thread directory to make it easier for members to find what threads they are looking for. We have alot of great threads that tend to get buried in all of the older ones. For example did you know we have a tagging help thread? Any questions you have about tagging or even advice on how to tag you can post in this thread.

How trading works:
Here is a summary of how trading works. You convo someone requesting a trade. They respond with a yes. You then purchase each others items using the "other" payment option. You would also during the Trade Event post your shop name if your shop is trade friendly if you are not already on the list. The master list is there so team members know what shops are trade friendly.
