Swap request

I say that a lot of people wanted to do a particular swap, but that wasn’t going on at that moment.

So I thought of the idea of starting of a board where you can do a request to swap and other people can reply on that. Then those two can swap with each other.

It would also be a nice place to keep on tract on personal swaps. So everyone can see what has been send to one and another.

Just some samples of request you can make:
- A request for a personal swap.
- A request for a partner in your country (for personal swap).
- A request for a swap that has no host.
- A request for a swap that you have been too late on the sign up date.

There are some rules we have to keep in mind.
- When you want to do a swap that is already going on in this board, you’ve to get approval of the original host.
- When a swap gets to many people involved it no longer can rely on this board and has to make his own board.
- You and your partner have to come to an agreement of topic, send out date and everything else that comes along.
- It’s your own responsibility when you’re swapping with a newbie, when you don’t want to do this put it in you request!!

An example of a request:

Name:
Country:
International (yes/no) :
Status (newbie/vet):
Will swap with a newbie (yes/no):

Summary of swap wish:


It is just an idea, if no one want to make use of it I don’t mind. But thought I would offer the possibility.
I will try to keep this board as clarifying as possible, but I’m not responsible for swap that go wrong!

Greetz, Jolanda

I think this is a great idea! Plus it could be used to see how many people are interested in a particular swap, before it gets underway!

I would be interested in a Red Riding hood themed swap. We could be inspired by the traditional Grimms version, or the movie.

Kawaii Swap??

I think that we should do another kawaii swap, I wasnt here for the first one. And there has been a lot of chatter about one lately. Anyway I think that we should do one in April, because we have a bunch of swaps going on right now, So maybe after the ATC swap is done? I asked Sugarlicious (the gal who hosted the last one) but she hasnt answered back. I wouldnt mind hosting one.

Just trying to get a idea of how many people would be interested before we get one going.

I'm in for the second round of the Kawaii swap too, and there were a few requests. Maybe someone should take charge and put this on the board on itself. I'm hosting the geeky swap second round right now, and I don't feel comfortable hosting two, so if anybody else wants to do it I guarantee I'll join in Happy
