I stumbled upon an old swap hosted by @aonbelay who hasn't been online for a while, but it seemed like such a fun swap that I need to host it myself :D

Below you can find 50 questions that you need to answer, the catch is that you can ONLY USE 1 WORD in the answer! Since I'm from Finland I get that different countries have different names for different things, for example 'living room' is 'olohuone' in Finnish so I could use 'olohuone' as an answer but not 'living room' SO I'm making that as an EXCEPTION; if your native word is only one word but the equivalent in English is two words (Finnish: kirjastokortti --- English: library card) you can use it, but write down the word in your language as well so your partners know you're not cheating and you get the chance to teach them a new word ;)

You'll have 5 partners and you can either email the answers to them (use BBC if not sending them in separate emails) or PM them here, your choice.

Some of the more boring stuff, read through these, really.

-Newbies welcome, I'm not having any rating requirements since this is an e-swap and I want to give people with a lower rating a change to get it up a bit, but I'll check the participants before assigning partners so if I feel like someone is going to be trouble I'll ban them as I see fit.

-I won't tolerate flakers so if you flake on my swap you can be sure to never swap in them again.

-The swap deadline is part of the requirement of the swap so be sure to send on time (if it's impossible to sent by the deadline, PM your partners and me before the deadline to avoid a lower rating)

-When you get your partners email/PM rate them as soon as possible, there's nothing more annoying than to have to ask to be rated

If I missed something, feel free to ask whatever is bothering you :)

COPY+PASTE these to your email and write your word after the question so your partners can see both the question AND the answer at the same time.

  1. What is your favorite color?
  2. What is your favorite mode of transportation?

This sounds like a fun swap! Watching till closer to the deadline! :)

hem0phobia 01/31/2015 #

Oh dear. For people like me, this is going to be hard. Because I could probably make a short story out of one question. >_< Joining anyway!

AnnSo 02/ 1/2015 #

Wow this sounds great =D

Violethare 02/ 1/2015 #

one word only can be hard, but sounds like fun:) Plus as someone new here this is a great way to get started.

liveve308 02/ 1/2015 #

Thanks for joinign everyone :D

I know some of the questions will be difficult to answer with just on word but that's the beauty of this swap ;D

fairypretty7 02/ 1/2015 #

this a great list for journaling as well thanks!

strayfog 02/ 2/2015 #

This looks fun. Can't wait to be assigned a partner :3

Ilene 02/ 2/2015 #

I LOVE WORDS, plays on words, puns, jokes etc. This sounds like a fun one to participate in, so YAY...

violettedream 02/ 2/2015 #

Is a number one word? Or two? For example thirty-two / 32 or is it thirty two?

liveve308 02/ 3/2015 #

@violettedream I'd say that a number, be it 1 (one) or 3589 (three thousand five hundred eightynine) is one word :D

tigerlily2110 02/ 4/2015 #

Do you just want the answers putting in the mail, with their relevant question numbers, or do we need to paste the questions as well?

liveve308 02/ 4/2015 #

@tigerlily2110 Well, I for one wouldn't want just 50 random words in a mail and then have to figure out what question they answer to, so yes, copy and paste the questions and write the answer after the them ;)

Reads2Write 02/ 5/2015 #

This seems like so much fun :-)

MiniQuilt 02/ 7/2015 #

How do you copy/paste in an e-mail?

Sakubik 02/ 8/2015 #

.... I am considering doing this a comic. Think that is too weird?

I upload them on tapastic then, and would send the link to my partners. Would that be fine?

my comic

I haven't signed up yet because I am worried it might be too much XD

Sakubik 02/ 8/2015 #

ahhh ... now that I think about it. I think you have to be signed up to see it >.< So I actually would have to send a chunky mail :X

paraxparaxnoia 02/ 9/2015 #

@sakubik I would totally love to see your comic even if not partnered with you, the look fabulous!! :D

liveve308 02/ 9/2015 #

@MiniQuilt just like you normally do, at least that's how it works for me.... only thing is that the numbers might not be there so remember to write them in front of the questions!

@sakubik I can see them! It's more than fine with me if you want to do those for all the questions and I don't see why it'd bother your partners so I say go for it :D And if I'm not partnered with you I still want to se them :DD

Sakubik 02/ 9/2015 #

@paraxparaxnoia and @liveve308

I will really really consider it, because I just see images in my head, that might be quite fun to illustrate. And I usually never join question answering swaps, so it'd be nice for a change :)

dobie256 02/ 9/2015 #

@Sakubik that is so cool! I would love to see you finished results!

Niobe 02/10/2015 #

It will be fun, can't wait. I'm glad it will be sent by emails. Hope to find new friends with the same interests, fears and dreams! Thank u for the swap.

Sakubik 02/13/2015 #

Another question!

Do the answers have to be realistic, or can they be creative and made up (but not really possible)

liveve308 02/14/2015 #

Already answered @sakubik but to everyone else as well, use your imagination as freely as you want to, no need to stick to cars as transportation ;D

Crazipurplelady 02/14/2015 #

By favorite meal do you meal like lunch or dinner or type of food?

liveve308 02/15/2015 #

@Crazipurplelady see my answer on top of your question

liveve308 02/18/2015 #

Partners assigned, happy swapping and remember to rate and send in time!!

TammieM3ENF 02/18/2015 #

Sent, that was pretty fun :)

ScrapHappyGabi 02/18/2015 #

Sent to both individual emails as well as to swapbot message - just to be double sure it arrives and is seen!


Bhindblueeyes 02/19/2015 #

I sent to all my partners - if you didn't receive, let me know! Email can be funny sometimes. Thanks! Amy :D

ferossi 02/19/2015 #

I loved taking part of this. I sent to all my partners. Send me a line if you don't get it. Very interesting answers and lots of fund answering myself.

slamophile 02/20/2015 #

this was really fun! thank you for running it.

user2637 02/23/2015 #

Only 3 no sends out of 142. Not bad!

user2637 02/23/2015 #

Oh... one of the no-senders hasn't been online since 2/8. Bummer she was let in. :(

liveve308 02/24/2015 #

@user2637 I did go through every single participant (when they had last logged in, their ratings etc.) and banned 20 people to make this a safe swap, I saw that one when I PM'd a reminder to the participants who hadn't send their swap out on the last day but couldn't do anything about her at that time.

If anyone wants me to "angel" this if she isn't coming back I of course will.

liveve308 02/24/2015 #

And one of the 3 non-senders apparently has sent her answers but hasn't marked the swap sent yet.

kattybby 02/25/2015 #

liveve308 02/26/2015 #

@kattybby I'm PM'ing you and your partners.
