  1. I think where I find the greatest cognitive dissonance is the notion that "it's only a couple of notecards", but that apparently filling them out is such a burden and a time sink that one needs to *hire someone else to do it*.    Because if it's that easy, and "only worth" a dollar a week for "a couple minutes" of time, then surely there's no need for someone else to take on the task.

    And if it *is* such a time sink, and is such a pain to be bothered with, then guess what? It's worth paying more than a dollar a week for someone else to do it.


    But it's real hard for it to be both of those things at the same time. Real, real hard.


  2. Brooke,

    Regarding splits:

    What's happened this week is you've made what was already an almost useless notificiation system fully useless.  Let me explain.  Let's say you have two businesses.  One is your own-you get all the money from that. The other is split, between you and your friend Bob. Up until this week, you'd get a notification like this:


    Source: Marketplace Linden
    MKT2 Item Sale Dist 
    Description: Order #9459290528, Item #592958929 (Bob Partner) 

    Now, this is *almost* useless. You have no idea what sold unless Bob tells you, but you at least know that something sold from your shared store. 

    As of this week, you now get this information:

    MKT2 Item Purchase 
    Description: Order #5820958287 (Some Stranger) 

    This information is *completely* useless. You have an order number you can't check. You still have no idea what sold, and now, you're given the name of the actual customer. Glorious, except since you get *NO* email notification of the sale. You have no idea who this person is, and you have no way of knowing if a) they bought something from your shared store b) they bought something from YOUR store, and you have no notification of it anywhere.

    Before you tell me that "if you didn't get an email it wasn't from your store" I would think about how many times the notification system has failed, or been extremely slow. 

    This is now completely useless, and it wasn't much more than useless before. 

    What is actually needed is *email notification on split sales*, and *what sold* in the transaction history. 

    Really, this stuff is honestly important when you're running multiple businesses with other people.  How confusing does this get when you share a business with Bob, and a *different* business with Cindy?  Think about it.
