This is my first swap here. I've seen lots of pen pal related swaps here, but I think this is a little different.

The concept it pretty simple: You will have one partner whom you will write a letter to. The letter should span at least two sheets of paper both front and back OR four single sided sheets. You don't need to use notebook paper, but the paper you use should be about the same size as standard notebook paper (which I think is about 8.5"x11"?). Talk about whatever you want in your letter - introduce yourself to your partner, tell them any information you think they may want to know about you. Make sure to include your user name and swap name in your letter. You may handwrite or type, whatever is more comfortable for you. Everyone is welcome, I don't care how old you are (as long as you're old enough to be on swap-bot), what gender you are, where you're from, what your race, religion, or sexual orientation are, or how long you've been here. I'm willing to angel if someone flakes, but if you know someone to be a bad swapper, please alert me to the fact.

Feel free to include extras with your letter, make sure to tailor it to the interests of your partner (check their profile if you're unsure).

I signed up for swap bot just recently and joined this pen pal swap. i recieved a letter confirming i joined it and has a deasline date. I know to write a letter but who do i send it to. and is it by email, or us mail? thank you

Rebelrose2nd 09/30/2008 #

I, too,signed up for swap bot today. I have been approved but do not know where to go from here. Do I write a letter and to whom do I send it or is it by email. Who picks out our partner? Thanks , Rebelrose2nd

Reds 09/30/2008 #

I'm not the coordinator and have no insider knowledge on when partners will be assigned, but based on my (limited) experience, partners are assigned the day after the stated sign-up deadline, and you'll get an e-mail notifying you that partners have been assigned for such-and-such a swap.

Scroll up and look at the small cream-/yellowish-colored box in the upper right-hand corner of your screen. See it? Once partners have been assigned, there will be other options beyond just the "Swap participants" and "Drop from swap." There will be one about the partners to whom you send and one about rating your partner/s and coordinator. Click on the former to see where to send, the latter to see who'll be sending stuff your way.

RainyC 10/ 1/2008 #

Thanks for that info Reds I too was curious how it works.

thesuester 10/ 1/2008 #

What reds said. I'm the swap coordinator, and if you have an questions, please contact me privately to ensure I receive it. Partners will be assigned tommorrrow (October 2).

I'm so pumped about this swap. The day I signed up for swap-bot, I signed up for this swap AND wrote my letter! Can't wait to swap letters with my partner. Happy swapping everyone!

mydecemberht 10/ 1/2008 #

Yay! I signed up too..My first swap bot participation! :) Maybe I'll be allowed into other swaps after this! :)

RoseStryker 10/ 2/2008 #

This is my first swap bot swap also and i cant wait to get started.

dreammer 10/ 7/2008 #

If you use a smaller paper, but write double the amount of pages would that be okay also, even though it's not notebook sized? It still would equal the same amount as far as the letter is concerned.

Mkmissey 10/22/2008 #

What if we have not recieved our letter and the person sending it has not sent yet. Do we rate them?

Jenzeestyle 10/22/2008 #

I think I got faked on too since it says she never sent it but we shall see with time. Man the first one i sign up for and no love back so sad..

Jenzeestyle 10/22/2008 #

take that back says she sent it yesterday but hmmm why late.

sperte 10/24/2008 #

Hey everyone, what if your partner sends you their letter but it's less than half what the required pages was? Would you rate them low? I've tried to message them about it, but they're ignoring me and I'm tempted to rate them low, but the coordinator said something about "angeling." Does that mean not rating someone low even if they don't meet the swap requirements? What would everyone else do?

Mkmissey 10/28/2008 #

I am sad. My first swap and I did not get a realiable partner for this one... Maybe next time I am unable to rate my swap partner. why? or how?
