    I got banned from etsy for some spam but I would like to use it without getting banned so now what are my options to still be able to message people? I thought the folks at BHW would have a good solution ;)

    Not quite sure if I understand your question. You got banned from Etsy and you are looking to use it again or are you looking for an alternative? If you want to create a new account just get a new email and proxy.

    Use google. You've been in this forum since 2014 and made 151 posts. You should know how to use proxy.

    I have never had a reason to, I mean I used them with followliker but I don't see how that can apply to this. I basically just change my IP in settings right?

    It's very relevant about how/why you got banned on Etsy. It's not particularly easy to just run in there with no real understanding of their marketplace, and expect to spam them effectively. You need to understand what behaviors or activities got you banned in the first place - otherwise replacing the account without correcting the anomalies will simply leave you with another new banned account.

    Can proxies help you? Probably. But you need to be comfortable doing the research about what a proxy is, how it works, how to use it, whether you need paid/private/shared/socks/vpn/transparent, etc... proxies. Nobody will hand you the keys to Etsy here, but if you'll do the legwork I'm confident you can get back to making some money. Google is your friend here - don't be afraid to learn to overcome your own challenges. Anyone with a couple spare hours on their hands should be able to easily figure out:

    #1 - how to make a new Etsy account.
    #2 - how to do their project better or on a different scale.
    #3 - how to avoid the pitfalls that got them in the hole in the first place.

    Don't wait for answers - find the answers, and get back to work. Good luck!

    without knowing exactly the specific needs of creating a new acc on etsy, i think you can follow the general routine what you'd follow on any site where you create a new account, which you want to manage through your browser:
    1. purchase a private proxy, configure it in firefox+foxyproxy, make sure that you did it right on a site like ipchicken.com, create a rule in foxyproxy to use the proxy only on etsy
    2. delete cookies/flash cookies/cache in your browser
    3. use a fully new identity when register a new account (name, email address, profile pic etc.)
    4. don't use the same website, again what you promoted on the banned acc, if there was any
    (5. if you used the mobile app, maybe it's better if you don't use it anymore or use it only on an entirely different device, because i'm pretty, you will find it difficult to change the device id and use the proxy on your mobile)
    +1 never ever try to login to the banned acc
