The number of page listings is dropping.  Are people not relisting expired listings or listing new items anymore? While I haven't listed anything new in a couple weeks I am still relisting items that have expired.

What is everybody else doing?

I’m not relisting my listings that had the fewer views.
And if the site here looks like it’s still not coming together soon, I will continue to not be relisting the rest. Will just let everything sit until the site comes to life, if it ever does. The snail pace of any progress is incredibly frustrating and very un-motivating. I’m thinking others may feel likewise with only 907 total listings on the site at the moment.

I am relisting my knitting but not my yarn (let me know if you want something) because this month and next are my biggest months to sell my knitting. Because we cannot rearrange listings, if I relist the yarn buyers will think I have a yarn store. Also, I was making a custom sweater and therefore not knitting accessories. Back on track now. I really want this site to succeed but I also want to eat.

I admit my energies lately have been focused on my other shop site. Sales picked up dramatically and shop requiring much more attention. Letting some listings expire here because I will be revamping my entire Artyah shop after first of year. 

And as it has already been referred to...ya gotta eat! But absolutely going to keep hanging in and look forward to the new 'build' here. Kinda excited to see it!

I only list when buyers ask me to, currently - I haven't had any non-friend sales or interest and am too busy selling on Instagram and via emails - so grateful to my loyal buyers... and most of them find paypal invoices easier than this venue, unfortunately.
Curious to see the new build for sure.

Same here, I haven't been renewing all of the expired listings.  I have 2 sites I can list free with no commission when an item sells and I pay only paypal fees.  So will probably lay low.

I'm letting my listings expire and not renewing for a few reasons.

1. No sales. I have been trying to sell online for over a year now between two sites and have gotten zero interest and no sales. Very disheartening.

2. No site improvement. We were told that this site was going to be revamped in 6 months. 4 months later, I read that the coders won't stay and ArtYah is back to square one getting a new coder and now it will be another 6 months until we can see any changes. I agree with others that have pointed out the flaws on this site and I feel they are changes that must be made if this site is to be successful. I intend to keep my account and in 6 months if this site makes the desperately needed changes, I will relist again.

3. I recently suffered a major trauma and am now housebound in a wheelchair. I can't get around easily and therefore cannot make it to the post office to mail items in the wild chance I do sell anything.

I list as I can, which is slow, because I do have other shops, and most of my variety of products are divided among specific shops, rather than everything duplicated. I am in process of listing at my 2nd shop, Artsy Craftery Studio. Unfortunately, I read a handful of complaints at an Etsy thread titled "Artyah" that those sellers will not be relisting because of frustration and unfulfilled expectations. Since there's going to be a new platform I don't see that it is expedient to relist. Everything may have to be ported over, or some other type of transferral done. We don't know what is going to happen with that. Sometimes porting over loses stuff and glitches and issues happen. I feel that it may be a lot of wasted work to relist now. My listings expire in the spring. At that time, I'll be waiting to see what is going on with the rebuild. I don't want to spend time and effort doing work for which some may need to be duplicated after the rebuild.
