How to Find the ESST Promo Thread on ETSY's Forum

Tutorial: Finding the Team Esst Weekly Promotion Thread

I. For People Who Need To Find The New Thread / Find the Thread For The First Time.

1) Navigate to the forum main page, the one with the five most recent posts under each category. http://www.etsy.com/forums_main.php or Etsy--->community ----> forums.

2) In the main ETSY header there is a search bar. It has two sections--a drop down box to the left telling you what category of item you are searching, and a blank bar to the right for you to enter your search terms. The default option on the drop down box will be "Forum titles" (if you are on the main forum page), so you don't have to make any changes there.

3) Type "ESST" into the search window and press the "Search" button, which is directly to the right of the search bar.

4) You will see a new screen that has all the forum posts that have "ESST" in the titles. Generally the most recent promo thread will be at the top (or near to the top), and will read something like, "@--}--Team ESST-Etsy Supply Street Team Weekly PROMO *Oct 19 to 26".

5) Click on that thread title to go to the thread. When the thread is closed the last post will give the link to the new thread.

II. For People Who Have Posted In the ESST Thread.

1) Navigate to the forum main page, the one with the five most recent posts under each category. http://www.etsy.com/forums_main.php or Etsy--->community ----> forums.

2) BENEATH the main ETSY / search bar there is, on the right, a bright blue link: "View Topics You've Posted In."

3) Click that link. The page will refresh to show you all the threads in which you've posted; the most recent will be at the top. You should be able to find the ESST thread in the first few entries.

4) If not, see above :)
