Just got an email today that apparently my Ratman Companion Cube scarf caught the attention of Valve to take it down off of Etsy.
Could be because it’s Companion Cube-esc, or that I had a screen shot of the game of Ratman’s Room (That I got from google). I’m thinking that’s what flagged it because there’s still Portal related items up.
Or maybe they think it looks too good, which is kind of a compliment if something looks TOO similar to the actual thing, when you’re just using string and sticks.
So warning to all Etsy Sellers, Valve is going rampage through the pages taking down things.
It’s kind of funny because I find that it’s VERY hard to sell on Etsy things that aren’t fan based, you can have original items and they’re great but they won’t sell as great as the fan things. I bet every shop has SOMETHING fan related in it’s history.
(Pssst, if you like the scarf and want to pay $95USD+shipping let me know)
