  • I was wrong, the pattern didn't expire until midnight tomorrow - so not sure what happened. Sorry to bother you. Have a good week ahead! -E

    • Hi,

      Glad that worked out.

      BTW - I only see your messages because I monitor all wiki activity.  If you want to reach me, you need to leave the message on my wall, not your own.  That way, I would get an email and notice on the wiki that I have a new message.

      Best regards,

      tarna

  • Ah! I just noticed that it was due to expire at midnight tonight ... perhaps there was a glitch somewhere as it had not shown as unavailable when I searched for the listing just now. I just renewed it, even though it did not show expired.

  • Hi Tarna,

    I noticed that All The Precious Things on Etsy deleted my link, replacing it with their link on Vogue 9441. The listing has been and is active, not expired or sold. I replaced my link, just in case you see that I put it back in order.

    Regards, Ellen

  • ... could you try to upload them without the white/background margin?  Those may work well for the thumbnail on etsy, but do not work on the wiki, and I find myself having to edit every one to fit the format here.

    Also, the description goes on the pattern page, underneath the picture after upload, not in the picture caption.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Best regards,

    tarna

    • Hi Tarna,

      Yes, I see what you mean - I create "square" images for Etsy's listings, and that does not work here. In the future I'll create a rectangular image for posting here, and be sure to put the description on the pattern page. I always appreciate the work you do fixing these pages! 

      Regards, Ellen

  • Hi Tarna,

    I'm curious about links to a shop named "Resurrections" ... see Simplicity 9340 A for reference. It always links to an Amazon.com page, but not directly to a shop, which is where the guidelines say links should go. Although the link does go to that particular pattern, it does not go right to the listing's page, which I don't think is quite correct. It would be like linking all Simplicity 9340 patterns to a page that shows all that are available on Etsy (reference [[1]] . Your thoughts?

    Have a good afternoon!

    -Ellen

    • Hi,

      Found this by accident - if leaving a message for me, you need to go to my wall...

      For listings on Amazon, this is the way the links work, thus it is permitted.  The rule exists so that users looking for patterns don't have to search, or sellers don't try to link just to their shop.

      Hope this helps.

  • Hi,

    The Royal Society Crochet book, while lovely, does not belong on this wiki.  You may want to check out and join the Knitting and Crochet Pattern Archive wiki for that and similar pure knitting and crochet patterns.

    Best regards,

  • Hi,

    We are trying to keep the wiki non-competitive.  Advertising language, such as "every pattern is $2.00 or less" is not acceptable.

    • I agree, Tarna! And I agree on the "Rare" reference, as "rarely" is it true! :-) So what can I do to help when I come across some of those iffy notations? Or when I find a pattern I love or want to research and find that the seller's listing links to a different pattern (grrrrr), or the listing is no longer available or sold? I have been trying to undo any listings I have that are sold, but I know I must miss one here and there, so I understand how it can happen. Have a great Friday!

    • As to bad notations - you can remove them.

      Vendor links - if they are clearly sold, or don't lead to the page the pattern is sold on (careful, some vendors have whole pages for a decade on their site...), you can also remove it.  Same goes for leading to a different pattern.

      Hope this helps.

      Hope you have lovely day and a great weekend.

  • Hi,

    Welcome to the wiki.  Please make sure to always add your link to the bottom of an existing list.  If you find that a link is clearly leading to a sold or expired link (please be absolutely certain), you may remove it, but not top it.

    Best regards,

    one of the admins
