So I've recently been wondering about this hearts thing on etsy, and therefor, began a thread. You can view it here, if you're interested:
No One Calls "" a Favorite Yet
I put my "Lost Octopus" up for sale a few hours ago, and already it has a heart! I guess what would be really cool is that if people heart an item, if they would send the creator a quick little note saying that they hearted the item, and why. That way it would somehow mean more, right? Just my two cents.
