Default Pet Peeves

1-Online vendors who do not identify where they are located; so you can't tell if that $ sign is US, Canadian, or Australian.

2-"New" sections on vendor sites that end up being 10 pages long.


3-Blog or gallery posters who identify all the elements of their creation----except the one item you are interested in.


4-Die packages that show the metal die but not a picture of what it looks like cut on cardstock.


5-Online vendors that don't let you in on their shipping policies until you place an order.


6-Stamping/scrapping supplies that could easily/cheaply have been packaged in a more permanent storage container or one that could be opened and closed easily.


7-False bottoms or backs that mislead you on how much is in the packaging.


8-Sneak peeks of new stamps, paper, other products. Get the whole unveiling over with and let us order, or not.


9-Blog hops. Who can bother!


10-SCS posters who post just to subscribe to a thread. Use the thread tool link to subscribe instead.


Wow! I'm out of peeves---for the moment.


Got some more to add to this????

Good thread! I'd like to add:

Sites that don't let you see an item's price, or tell you it's out of stock, until you add it to your cart.

People who post on message boards just to promote their blogs or websites.

Talented people who ruin their videos by giggling too much or mumbling.

I am so sorry, being someone who posts to subscribe. I didn't know there was another way to do it. I just noticed that's what people did so I did it too. Whoops.

Awesome list, amen to all!

My additional pet peeve is the stamp vendors who don't give you measurements of the stamped image.

If blog hops bother you, why not just don't hop? I don't get that pet peeve unless you're required to do the hop.

My peeve is design teams with more than about 8 members especially if, to enter the release week contests, you have to go leave a comment on ALL 47 members' blogs to have the best chance at winning.

Now, if you want to have 16 people on your team and 8 design for the odd numbered days and 8 for the even days, that's a little different. But I give up when I start getting into double digits.

I'm thinking back to when new Spellbinder dies made their appearance, but you had to track down each blog to find each new die. I liked seeing what the die cuts looked like on a card, but it was too much nuisance and I stopped bothering with that hassle.

Blogs that play music! I often open things in a new tab to read later, but if it opens and plays music, I close it without bothering to read.

I appreciate your peeves list. Right off the top I know I need to go through myNEW category page. I am sure there are a few others that apply to my site too! I thank you!
Blessings.

People that say 'hey look what I've made' and you have to follow a link to see what they're talking about, I want to see it there and then on the post.

Not being able to exclude sections of SCS that I never look at, having to sift through 10 or 12 pages when I go to New Posts to find the ones that interest me.

Web sites that proclaim 'FREE P & P!' and when you actually go to have a better look see it is 'just spend over 40' !!

Sites where you can't find out how much the P&P is and you have to email them to find out - they are usually sites that have a really hefty charge.

Think I'd better stop there!

I must be quite laid back as nothing much riles me the way most folk here seem to be riled! Misnamed product is the one thing that's like nails on a chalkboard though - I cringe every time I see "Distressed Ink"!

I don't get bothered by much, either (like Joanne), but I'm not a fan of blogs that play music or links that go nowhere. Oh - I just thought of one! Blogs where I have to click through from my reader to the actual blog to read the post. That defeats the purpose of why I added it to a reader in the first place...

One website irritation is when there's a small product photo with a magnifying glass to zoom it. Click on the icon, wait for the pop-up window to load . . . and it's the same small photo again.

Default Pet Peeves

Oh... I'm so happy to see that I'm not the only one who HATES "Sneak Peeks". They drive me absolutely nuts!!! I especially hate when the vendor only shows you a portion of the stamp - seriously... please don't do that!! I find it extremely frustrating to the point where I can't enjoy reading blog updates about new releases.

I would also like to add that one of my pet peeves is vendors who NEVER offer "Sales". Even if it's just something that is offered once a year - but never offering a sale seems like bad business to me. I feel appreciated as a client if I get a good deal on occassion and I tend to buy more then I would under normal circumstances - so the vendor wins and I win too!

Along those same lines, are vendors who don't offer a price point that entitles the purchaser to receive free shipping. It just doesn't make sense to me when a vendor's shipping charge keeps getting more and more expensive the more I put in my basket. So.. is the thought process that I should purchase less to keep the cost of shipping down??? I would think that offering customers an incentive to purchase more is a much better approach to doing business. Having an on-line store saves vendors the cost/hassle of having a formal (expensive) brick and mortar shop - shipping costs are just part of the cost of doing business - when you have an online store. I don't expect free shipping all the time, but offer a discount if the customer is willing to give you a large order.

Oh, yes! All of the above. Hope the vendors are reading. Some of these are simple fixes, some not. LSS's-no complaint, so glad you are still surviving!

I totally agree on the posting of blog entries in digest form, where you have to click on them to get the full text. If readers are on dial up access and can't handle the band width, they are not going to subscribe to your blog unless they want to see the whole thing anyway.

Wow, great list. I'll add video tutorials with the instructions given too softly I can't hear. Granted, I have a hearing impairment, I really appreciate it when the volume is nice and loud. Of even better if they add captions.

I think other people's music is my biggest peeve. I carry earplugs in my pockets no matter where I go. The grocery store, the mall, etc. I like only a very narrow range of music that no one else seems to like. When I play a video tutorial, my finger is always on the volume adjuster, ready to mute it (even if there are spoken instructions) if there is also music playing.

Fortunately I did live with my brother years ago, and then with a boyfriend. Those early experiences taught me how to tune out most music (can't tune out stuff with strong, heavy basses), so now I can enjoy myself even if I am in someone's home or car and they have the radio on.

I agree soooooo much!!! The first place I look is the company's shipping policy. If they don't offer free shipping or at least a flat rate above a certain order amount, I either order JUST the one tiny item I want that absolutely no one carries, or not at all. And I will spend HOURS searching for that one item in other stores to assure myself that NO ONE ELSE sells it!!!

Here's one. Blogs that have an annoying popup that says "follow me on pinterest" or "like my facebook" or whatever. And the stupid "close" thing takes longer to come up so you have to wait. I've been seeing this more and more and I hate it. This seems to happen more on chrome than firefox but firefox sucks for blog hopping (for me). And I have popups blocked and adblock running on both browsers.

Agree with all the above! Another one for me - videos where the music is louder than the person speaking. Those I click out of right away. If they can't bother turning the music down, I can't bother watching them. At. All!

I really dislike it when an on-line vendor has a site that doesn't allow options for how many items load per page. Recently, I was looking at a site I hadn't visited before and clicked on the "clearance" section. The site showed 10 items per page & had 43 pages under the "clearance" section. I don't know about you, but I really don't care enough about whatever you might have on sale or even regular stock if I have to click through more than 10 pages in each category to see it all. I realize some people are on a dial up system, but it should be an option to view "all" or at least 50 items per page as most people have access to faster internet services.

I too also hate sneak peaks, blog hops and in particular a couple of stamp manufacturers (whose products I love) who send out an e-mail a week before their blog hop or sneak peek even starts to announce that it is coming. Like I am going to keep the e-mail around for a week, or even remember to do the hated blog hop a week later. Generally, it leaves such a negative feeling, I just wind up visiting these vendor sites when I think about it every 3 to 6 months.

"marking my spot" posts are pretty easy to scroll past.

Is "marking my spot" the same as the "subscribing" I see often? It annoys me because I receive email notifications of postings to threads I am interested in, and I automatically click on the link. Only to see that the post is just "Subscribing"!

Another minor peeve is following a thread that a person posted a question about something. A week or two goes by, and I see a number of posters have assisted in the answer----but the original poster has disappeared off the face of the earth! Don't all those posters deserve at least a brief thank you?

I subscribe to a lot of threads, and have to say that very very seldom do I go to a link and the ONLY new post is a "marking my spot" or "subscribing" post. 99.9% of the time there are other posts in addition to it.

I read this earlier but didnt think i really had any pet peeves when it came to crafting ..but...i just remembered one. Ive been watching a lot of youtube videos and it bugs me when people use washi tape to hold things down instead of masking or artist tape. I know some people have lots of washi tape but some of us dont and the bit that i have i wouldnt waste like that.

Along this same line, I get really annoyed with people who "bump" a thread over and over without adding anything else. I'm subscribed to a couple threads where 1/2 the posts are the same person posting "bump." Sometimes I just want to post and say "Obviously, no one has anything to add to this thread. Get over it." [But I don't...]

Some hostesses bump to keep their thread near the top to get more people to sign up for their swaps, so I understand that.

My peeve is when someone posts a card and then in the description it says go to my blog for more information. Then you go to their blog and they have absolutely nothing more to help me with that card! That's happened a lot this week. I have found some really wonderful cards and the creator has said to visit their blog and nothing there to show me how to create it. Just more pictures of it.

Hmmm, I am guilty. I often post questions on Techie sites where people , including me, have posted since the dark ages of dial-up accounts and they don't want to waste band width with thank you notes. But I Am grateful for answers, have speedy fast connections now and will pay attention to manners.

My peeve is when someone posts a card and then in the description it says go to my blog for more information.

I have found some really wonderful cards and the creator has said to visit their blog and nothing there to show me how to create it. Just more pictures of it.
And along that same line. When they say "go to my blog for more info" that is annoying enough in itself. Then when they link to their blog homepage and you end up having to search for the post with the card you're interested in, because it's been a while since they made that post. That puts me right into the "forget this" category and I decide I didn't need to know more after all.

Good list.. My only pet peeve is music.. I upload 20 blogs at a time to visit, and music is playing, I do not know which blog it is so I shut off my sound. Now if I come upon a video tutorial I have to by pass it until I find the culprit who is playing . This has been mentioned for years and you would think people get the hint. I also hate 'sneek peeks' but do love the blog hops to see what designers created with the new images.

My pet peeve is shipping charges. If I special order at Hobby Lobby, they don't charge a shipping fee. If I spend a LOT at most online vendors, there is no shipping charge. Why, then, when I spend $300 on SU do I have to pay $30 in shipping? Their products are pricey enough but then add on 10% in shipping?????? I am a demo (discount only) my discount barely covers the shipping and tax. I think 10% shipping is hard for anyone to swallow.

How about people on youtube that say um or makes many mistakes making the card? Shouldn't one be more organized before making video? And stop the music. So many videos have the music so loud or distracting I can't follow. OT but stop parking in the fire lane because you are too lazy to park 15 feet away.

OK, this one is specifically for Ranger/Tim Holtz. You sell Distress markers in a cylindrical container with flat bottom and top. The markers stand on end in the container, but you are supposed to store them horizontally! Why put them in a storage container that rolls around if stored on its side??? Duh!

They do it to save time on the videos.

But I agree, I cringe when someone takes out a 12" x 12" piece of cardstock (especially double-sided: harder to find) only to punch a 1-1/2" or 2" shape not even in the corner. When I make the most of my paper, invariably if I've had to use some of a new sheet, then the next time I need that color, I can't use it because the sheet is too small.

As too bad links, sometimes it's not the poster's fault. I've saved gigabytes of .mht files for tutorials or cards to convert to Word later on, only to click on the link for the page I saved and be directed to the Home page. Once in a great while you can search for the tutorial or card name in a search engine and get lucky to be directed right to the page.

As to no spoken words on the video, would the feeling be the same if the person were speaking in non-English? I've seen a few origami tutorials in Japanese and it really didn't help me to comprehend it, as I don't speak that language. I just don't like it when they go too fast to follow; they should either keep the knowledge to themselves and not subject us to their over-inflated sense of self-importance (look what I can do! Don't you wish you could?) or if they wish to share their knowledge, then go slow enough to teach it. Again, it could be due to video length time...
