"No" to "Yes" - what's your wish list?

Posted by: Keith Admin

Keith Admin photoHi ... Keith here from iCraft Admin - just a quick note on something that occurred to me on my way home this evening. It relates to what we hope never to do here.

I counted 11 "no" signs on my way home from my subway stop to my apartment on the 30th floor.  Things like "no posting", "no parking", "no loitering", "no ball playing", "no walking dogs", "no standing" ...  I almost felt like the world was saying "no living".  In fact our elevators now say (beyond the basement and lobby - "no up button"! 

It was a whole lotta "no" to see in the space of some 500 yards.  I think I'd prefer a few "yes" things instead - like "play ball here" or "walk dogs here" ... 

Of course, I've been thinking a lot about iCraft lately - especially as I jump into media relations and communications support.  I began to think what we want buyers and sellers to feel as they surf here. 


When it comes to iCraft, we very much want to convey a "yes" attitude not a whole lotta "no"! 

Being a newbie to the forum I also want to offer up a spot in Blog Central for wish lists. So, tell me what you'd like to see from iCraft. We've tracked a lot of this already from various posts, but I want to start afresh and generate some fresh talk. I may not be able to say "yes" right away, but I sure won't say "no" and everything we talk about I promise to make sure gets read by our new team of tech wizards. More on them at another time. 

Oh, it doesn't have to be tech oriented either - just thoughts on how iCraft can serve sellers and buyers better ...

My wishlists are in the forums - not just on your thread but in the website suggestions over time as well.

I just wanted to comment on your observation:
"It was a whole lotta "no" to see in the space of some 500 yards. I think I'd prefer a few "yes" things instead - like "play ball here" or "walk dogs here" ... "

I believe in this a whole lot! Human beings are hard-wired to point out the negative things in an effort to avoid unpleasant stimuli in the future. However, positive reinforcement is by far a better way to do it!

Signs like"play ball here" or "walk dogs here" ... would be more motivational and/or educational.

Looking forward to hearing ideas on how to make iCraft a more friendly, helpful place that motivates handmade shopping!
