if you're doing ANYTHING besides purchasing something, the Etsy website looks nice BUT SUCKS for the following reasons. #1 I have to lodge this critique on a third party site becuase there IS NO PLACE on Etsy to critique them (I guess they feel they have built the first perfect website).#2 if I go anyplace, especially to my sold items, which buy the way is difficult to ascertain with just symbols, I Can't get back to the home page because there are NO LINks on the subsequent pages to go other places like my home page #3. a user has to click each non-labeled symbol link hoping to blindly get back someplace that they can't and then ultimately find out the only way to get away from the infernal useless place oin etsys I am at, is to CLICK the BACK BUTTON ON THE BROWSER and watch the pages flick back and hope I get to the one I want.
This review is also for YM in general because I have a car that I've paid $70 twice to get analyzed and fixed and it STILL Isn't running. It is true Both times I left good reviews for James and the opther mechanic for these "services" because I did so right after they left and aqt that time I trusted their advice was correct and they werew courteous and professional while at my home. So I left reviews confident in their assessments and performed the parts changes myself, which each time cost me an additional $130 for the part, NEITHER of which made my car run like they said it would. So my last 2 YM experience is that I spent $400 through YM and buying parts based on their mechanics' advices and my car STILL DOESN"T START! So I am revising my once glowing opinion and review of YM and this mechanic. ast time James told me where the other mechanic screwed up: he didn't perform the basic tests that come first, checking that it is getting gas and is getting fire to the spark plugs and James said in fact that it is not getting fire something I can't check myself because I live alone and in fact something which James required my assistance checking) James did that and said the control module was bad and he had to leave for the next appointment if I wanted to put the part in myself. Then he gave me his personal phone# SUPOSEDL:Y, and advised me not to call YM, but to call him directly if I had any more problems getting it running. So I bought the part and installed it, it still will not start and I called and emailed James personally, as he advised me to,. In the messages i asked him to get in contact with me that I needed him to come back. But that was like a month ago He's NEVER answered my email or call and my car still is not running $400 later. But that is not all, so I got to thinking about the colossal waste of my money when I am mostly unemployed and mostly broke and decided to contact YM and complain. So I did that and a YM rep responded in a totally inappropriate way in that she cherry picked something that wasn't an issue out of my correspondence and responded to it instead of my complaint! So then in my reply, I pointed out what she did and demanded a $140 refund and have not gotten any response to my follow up reply in 2 weeks.

Well this site sucks becuase I can't rebut the BS YM reply below except afdding to this, so here goes: this is a boilerplate nonresponse response to appear to be a real's a copy and past job that I've been getting all along. first of all this was a"diagnostic" call and is not covered by any YM warranty. Secondly they still keep giving me the same boilerplate response privately saying that my service isn't covered by warranty. They go around posting this BS on all the complaints i posted on all the review sites I could find. i see that YM's rating is going down and this is why. they have hack mechanics working for them as subcontractors that they don't hold to task for their misdiagnoses of problems and don't refund them.So I am hoping that enough negative feedbacks will cause YM's profits to shrink and they go bankrupt and deservedly so because they are just another ripoff company who doesn't actually back it's product.
