Etsy Hearts Counter by EtsyGadget
Etsy Hearts Counter is a plugin for Google Chrome Browser that shows how many times have you favorited/unfavorited (hearted/unhearted) items and shops during an hour.
As every Etsy Seller knows (or at least should know), as many hearts receive your items - better promotion receive your shop on Etsy (in trending items, mailings, search etc.). Knowing that many sellers participate in such called "Games" or "Favathons", the main principle of which is heart interchange - I give you and you give me. Rules are different from one team to other, but the basis is this - you need to fav (favorite) items of other sellers and they, in change, fav yours. This way each seller can collect much more hearts - if you "play" in many teams and you play well, you get a lot of hearts,better ranking and better places in Trending Items, Search etc.
The huge problem is that each seller has a limit - 300 hearts per hour as much... So even if you stay constantly in those teams playing "Favathons", you just will encounter yourself with this limit and it will not permit you gather more hearts. Even worse, Etsy does not warn you about it - when you get to 300 hearts, you may just simply continue hearting listings thinking that you are doing all correctly, and you can follow playing. But the truth is that you just missed a lot of listings and you can be penalized for that by team, or simply be expelled from the team. And all that only because of your ignorance - because you didn't know how many hearts you left.
That's why I decided to help you all and to create this small plugin, with the help of which you can look after your hearts and prevent missed hearts and so, avoid being expulsed from teams.
So, Dear EtsyFriends,
Happy Favathons !!! :)
