Etsy Helpful Links - Not Found Via Etsy (and now may be out of date)

THIS IS A COUPLE OF YEARS OLD AND QUITE OUT OF DATE! There may be something to learn here, but much of it is no longer valid. Please check or ask in the Forums for more recent links. Things are a changin'! :) Thanks! I guess this has become a bit of historical reference.
