RATE A SWAPPER!!!!!

hey all!!
ok, so allot of people on here weae a litte wary about swaps because the ony thing youhave to rely on is that persons word. My first Swap went Fantastic!! Gypsie Moon is the greatest. very prompt.


im messaging craftrella and asking her if she can put some swapper icon on our page thats rated by the opposite swapper.

I really don't like that idea because it puts people in an ackward situation. Sometimes things happen and people can't finish the swap. I had it happen to me twice, but its ok. remember we try to be a family here and I feel like rateing people is like judging them on how cool their crafts are or something along that line

oh yea. we partally i just wanted to also pu out there that we should felt swap ratings on our profiles so people can rate us.but i understand what ur saying i did not think about that sorry. its just that i feel people who take the time to make something 4 a swap should get what they deserve.i understand that things happen. and if it does the swapper needs to explain that not drop of the face of the earth [that is if something drastic happened then i would be devasdated].i just feel like people shoudl join swaps who are familiar withit and are financially prepared.

it might not be so bad, if you're rating with stars

the idea can be nice but you know i have had a swap partner have something come up and i would never rate her badly because of it. But maybe it could be like on amazon
did your package arrive?
When contacting your partner with a problem did they reply?

well i dont think the rating should go against a swapper if things came up or anything like that, legitimate reasons are ok, not to give bad ratings to any swapper, but make it known to the swappers who dont keep in contact of progress and dont send and things like that, if not ratings, i suggested there be a swap record on the other thread

ok yes if we open up a swapper thread thats fine. i understand if peoples situations are uniquely disabling. but most people KNOW how thier situation is looking as far as thier availability to swap.if they have slight problems they need to stay in contact with the opposite swapper not just not talk to them anymore thats just wrong.i would NEVER enter a swap witohut being financially stable. or just to get somrthing form someone with no intent on holding up my end.

so a rating system that rates: communication, and final outcome of the swap items is what seems okay but I am just afraid that the new swappers will deter away and feel like they are not up to what the vets can do, I just don't want to make anyone feel like their crafting isn't worth showing and make them feel like they shouldn't even craft anymore.

It would be true test to see if ppl are reliable in swaps so ppl who craft their hardest and ship then don't get anything in return. I know Craftster.org has something like that so it could be an idea for us to test run as long as we don't get mean and cold with other members. You know what I am trying to say? I feel like a babbling. lol

Just want to keep the family essence of cutoutandkeep and not a robot type setting.

In the swaps I host , communication is the biggest with me, if you are going to be late sending off let me and your partner know and everything will be alright.

Roxanne, its nice to know if people are good swappers, but generally when someone hosts a swap...they know the people who choose to be a part of the swap and try their best to make sure nobody is left out...


what i'm trying to say is that....newbies should be given a chance...and rating doesn't always work best.

we are all friends and family here and try our best to look out for eachother....

I don't really think anyone is weary about doing swaps...i think more so they are just bummed that things don't always go as planned.

I always say things happen, but I think its great to get newbies into swaps

yeah it is very rare that you get someone who just doesn't send or contact you ar anything it has happened but we usually try to make it up to that person

This is where the Angels come in, we had a thread where ppl volunteered themselves to be an angel if someone drops from the face of the earth. Happy
