I'm from Indiana so does it mean from the capital of Indiana or the capital of the US? Thanks.

Melissa150025 08/26/2013 #

I am from the US as well, so I have the same question, should I do my state capital or the country capital?

transplanted1 08/26/2013 #

I too was wondering the same, also, being halfway across the United States it would be difficult to get a D.C. PC and the likelihood based on posted comments so far anyway is I would in turn get another D.C. PC. When I purchase PC's on vacation I am now buying at least 2-1 for my collection and 1 or more to swap.

guillelds 08/27/2013 #

@justmesks The card to be sending is the capital of your country. Your case: Washington DC

Gingerlei 08/27/2013 #

I'm unclear about what constitutes a card that features your country's capital city. For example, I have a pc of Martin Luther King's "I have a Dream" speech that was in Washington D.C.; I also have a pc of the Eye of the Dome of the Rotunda in Washington D.C. Are those OK for this swap; or do you specifically want Washington D.C. buildings (the White House, The Mint, the FBI Bldg, etc.) and/or historical items (the Declaration of Independence, Bills of Rights, Constitution, etc.)?

guillelds 08/28/2013 #

Hello Gingelei... The card to be sent has to represent, in your case, Washington D.C: A monument, a square.. a park... The Potomac (in your case).. Something representative of your city so The eye of the dome of the rotunda will work perfectly...

@craftybarbie , you are supposed to send a postcard from the capital of your country, not your state. You have to send one from Washington D.C.

guillelds 10/ 8/2013 #

@craftybarbie You should send a card with something related to Washington DC not Olympia

MiniQuilt 10/12/2013 #

I live in that state of UTAH in the USA. How about me sending a PC of Salt Lake City, my state capital. Makes sense to me- Cause a pile of Washington DC would be borning 'cause many prople live int he USA in our Swap-Bot friendships. MiniQuilt (in UTAH)

user6937 10/13/2013 #

I have one for Ottawa, so I'm in.

user6937 10/13/2013 #

@MiniQuilt - you're trying to change the host's swap. Nobody will end up with a pile of DC postcards. Just one :)

guillelds 10/14/2013 #

@Miniquilt Dont worry the chances that to happen are little..

guillelds 10/14/2013 #

Welcome Ottawa @user6937

rilakkumasensei 10/14/2013 #

Wow! I can't understand why there are so many questions! It's been explained! If your from america, send a postcard with something to do with DC! If you want to send a postcard from your capital, join the US capital postcard swap!

Come on people! Read the title of the swap! World capital of your COUNTRY! Not your state!

If you're unhappy, don't join this swap!

I will be joining, and if I have an american partner and you send me a postcard that is not representative of DC, you will be rated a 3!

Stop thinking and just read what it says!

And I'm not trying to be mean, just trying to make it clear!

streetjewel 10/14/2013 #

I'm sure with my luck I will get USA partner. Happens to me all the time lately( And this time there are too many people from USA. Dropping off.

Pidgy91 10/14/2013 #

bebeboo 10/16/2013 #

Hi, we're from Australia and live right next to our capital - Canberra. :) Happy to accept US state capital postcards or cards from your province, canton, county or state capitals within your country. :)

guillelds 10/16/2013 #

@bebeboo You can schedule a swap with capital city of your state, province,etc but out of this swap

Yes, Prague!!

Kotekhen 10/19/2013 #

Another Aussie here, I live way down south in Tasmania and the capital of my state, is Hobart (my home city) - does this mean I must some how source a card from the NATIONAL capital (Canberra) or from my STATE capital (Hobart)? Cheers! Joining in regardless ;)

guillelds 10/19/2013 #

@kotekhen You have to send Camberra.. The swap is about capital city of your country

Kotekhen 10/19/2013 #

<3 right on

flyingfox 10/20/2013 #

Joined... I have tons of DC postcards! The Capitol, Washington Monument, Smithsonian... You name it, I have it, so I obviously don't have any problem sending out one. Hopefully I will be paired up with a sender who is not from the US... Here's hoping!!! If I get paired up with a sender from within the US, I would totally give Five and a Heart for a State Capital card!

Jujubelle 10/20/2013 #

Bern, Switzerland is in as well :)
