Hi,
 
the link doesn't work (at least for me), I am getting a message that says "you are not allowed to edit this story." Huh

@ Vicky - You can just click the 'Community Blog' link in blue at the top of the page.  Takes you right to it.
Maybe you knew that already - I am not sure from your post - only an FYI if you didn't know ...

Just have to share my experience so far with the uniqueness feature.  I was in the middle of a 100+ card series (age specific birthday and birthday party cards) when you announced this feature.  I started to put quite a bit of time and effort into each description trying to make them different. Of course there are only so many ways to describe the same image, but tried to at least make one sentence different in each description.  Green thumbs were popping up all over the place  and I was feeling very jubilant and enjoying the challenge.  I took a break from working on the series and did some other cards then when I went back to the series today all the green thumbs up are now red thumbs down. There are a few yellow ones.
 
Perhaps it is too much to expect GCU green thumbs up on all in a long series.  I did google search with some simple key words on these cards and they came up in the first 5 results every time.  There was always at least one in the first page of the image search area and the google shopping search page was filled with my cards.
 
Something is working!
 
Thanks for listening,
 
Kati

I've had the same experience Kati and found that if I take the time to open those which were green and are now yellow, when I open the edit view, they once again show green ... I save it again and from that point on they remain green.  Certainly frustrating, because it's twice as much work for us, but it does seem to work Smiley
 
Maybe part of the bug. They don't always 'save'?

Steve, how can your store be okay when it looks like all your Artist Notes say the same thing?
 
Just curious.

Hi
 
I'm glad people are writing about this feature, 'cause it's driving me bonkers!  cry
I agree with everything Kathleen and Doreen have said. One day they are green and the next red, very frustrating and time consuming. When sending in a batch of the same design, how does one write something different on each. For instance, I was changing some of my cupcake cards, and I'd be getting a green light, but the minute I wrote cupcake, it turned red. How can you describe a cupcake card and not mention a cupcake?
Has anyone discovered some little knack to this that's working for them. Help!!!  undecided
 
Carol
p.s. Doreen, I'm still not getting forum emails ... are you?
